Today, there are eight Blue Flag beaches in India; a global award bestowed upon the cleanest beaches in the world.
Not all’s lost in 2020. India just got another reason in its list of being incredible–the blue flag tag for eight of its beaches. Spread across five states and two union territories, these have joined the group of the most clean, safe and environmentally friendly beaches around the world.
