Hunstanton’s main beach has been awarded a Seaside Award for 2016 by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
The award recognises and rewards beaches in England that achieve the highest standards of beach management.
Judges consider aspects such as the quality of facilities, information and presence of beach patrol as well as environmental management.
Across the nation, 111 beaches have received a Seaside Award today.
Elizabeth Nockolds, West Norfolk Council cabinet member for culture, heritage and health, said: “We’re delighted that Hunstanton will once again be flying the Seaside Award Flag in 2016.
“This nationally-recognised award assures visitors that when they come to Hunstanton, they’re going to find a clean, safe, attractive and well-managed beach”.
Keep Britain Tidy’s coastal award manager Paul Todd said: “It is great that we have been able to award more beaches this year with Blue Flag and Seaside Awards.
“As an environmental charity, Keep Britain Tidy is committed to improving the quality of the places where people live, work and holiday and these winners have proved their commitment to providing the best possible beaches for locals and visitors alike.
“Visitors can be sure, if they visit a Blue Flag or Seaside Award-winning beach, they are visiting one of the best beaches in the world.
“The fact that 143 beaches will be flying a Blue Flag or Seaside Award this summer is testament to the hard work of beach managers up and down the country.
“They know that great beaches are great for the communities they serve, great for visitors and, therefore, great for the economy of those resorts’.
In Norfolk, Wells beach and East Runton also won Seaside Awards while Cromer, Sea Palling, Sheringham and Mundesley were award Blue Flag status.
Skegness, Sutton and Mablethorpe, on the other side of the Wash, also bog Blue Flags.
