PEMBREY Country Park is celebrating after winning the prestigious Blue Flag status for the eleventh consecutive year.

The attraction, which includes Cefn Sidan beach, has been awarded the status every year since 2009. Since the Blue Flag awards were first introduced in 1988, Pembrey Country Park has won more Blue Flags than anywhere else in Wales.

Cefn Sidan was also the first Welsh beach to win the accolade.

The award is only given to beaches, marinas and harbours that have the highest quality of water, environmental education and management, safety and services. The Blue Flag is an indication of a world class visiting experience for local people and visitors to Carmarthenshire.

Cllr Hughes-Griffiths said: “Pembrey Country Park is a jewel in Carmarthenshire’s crown, which has a long-standing, proud association with the Blue Flag Awards. At a time when more and more people are choosing to holiday at home, the Seaside Award is a symbol of quality that can be depended on when looking for potential places to visit.”
