Three of our beautiful beaches have been awarded ‘Seaside Awards’, placing them amongst the best in the country.

71 beaches across the country were awarded Blue Flags by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, with a further 137 receiving Seaside Awards. This includes awards to Lowestoft South of Claremont Pier (bathing / resort), Southwold (bathing / resort) and Kessingland (Non Bathing).

A spokesperson for East Suffolk Council said:

“We are delighted to have been awarded Seaside Awards for three of our beaches. Seaside Awards are presented to the best beaches in England and celebrate the quality and diversity of our coastline. We have outstanding, popular beaches in East Suffolk and these awards reflect that.”

The Seaside Award is run by Keep Britain Tidy and recognises and rewards beaches in England that achieve the highest standards of beach management and, in the case of bathing beaches, meet the required standards for water quality.
