O' for Ocean Conservation

Las Cuevas Beach was chosen as it is a protected nesting site for endangered marine turtles, and was recently awarded 'Blue Flag Beach' status, the first in the english-speaking Southern Caribbean. This international recognition is only given to beaches that meet 'Excellence' standards for safety, amenities, cleanliness and environmental conservation. The strict criteria of the programme are set by the international coordinators of the Blue Flag campaign (http://www.blueflag.global/)
