The Blue Flag was again hoisted at the Sines Leisure Port on last June 3. José Pedro Soares, on behalf of APS, together with the Blue Flag Association and the Maritime Authority of Sines, headed the ceremony concerning the attribution of this important award to the Port of Sines’ infrastructures.
Both the Vasco da Gama Beach and the Sines Leisure Port have been uninterruptedly awarded the Blue Flag Award since 2007 and 2008 respectively, due to the preservation of the highest environmental standards, safety and comfort of users, as well as information and environmental awareness. 2016/2017 was no exception, with the renewal of the award in both infrastructures.
Within the scope of the European Blue Flag 2016 Program under the theme "30 Years, 30 Criteria, One Goal", the Port of Sines and Algarve Authority will promote a set of environmental and recreational activities aimed at the whole community – “A new look”; “30 years changing” and “Survive at sea” .
