The Blue Flag is a badge awarded annually by the Environmental Education Foundation to beaches and ports that meet a series of environmental conditions and facilities. The Institute of Environmental Law of the Dominican Republic (IDARD) awarded the Blue Flag 2016-2017 international certification to Minitas Beach in Casa de Campo. Before granting any distinction, the International Jury of the Blue Flag program performs a rigorous evaluation process of each beach, ensuring that it meets the demanding environmental requirements.
The Blue Flag to Minitas Beach guarantees that it is clean, safe and that the quality of its waters and services is constantly monitored. This certification reaffirms the commitment made by Casa de Campo Resort to the responsible environmental management of the coastal zone and marine, and it exhorts to continue with the implementation of good environmental practices, as well as to promote the environmental education of beach users.
The distinction ensures that the maintenance of the Blue Flag certification will depend on the permanent fulfillment of all the criteria of the program during the certification period.
The Blue Flag International Program is a voluntary certification process for beaches and marinas, administered internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) (www.fee-international.org) and at the national level by the Environmental Law of the Dominican Republic (IDARD).
It is noteworthy that Minitas beach is known for its great beauty, highlighting in the environment its crystalline waters colored with turquoise blue, its white virgin sands, and the set of palm trees that surround it, which makes it a true Caribbean earthly paradise.
