Two more Indian Beaches enter the coveted list of Blue Beaches
The internationally renowned and coveted International eco-label "Blue Flag" has been accorded to two new beaches — Minicoy Thundi Beach and Kadmat Beach — both in Lakshadweep. This is yet another acknowledgement of India's commitment to protect and conserve the pristine coastal and marine ecosystems through holistic management of the resources. With this, there are now twelve beaches that have earned the Blue Flag designation.
Mr. Bhupender Yadav, India's minister for environment, forests, and climate change, shared this proud moment on Twitter and congratulated everyone, expressing happiness and saying that it was a result of India's tenacious effort to create a sustainable environment under the leadership of Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi.
One of the Lakshadweep archipelago's most beautiful and unspoiled beaches, Thundi Beach features white sand and turquoise lagoon water. Both swimmers and tourists will find it to be a heaven. In particular, cruise visitors who come to the island for water activities enjoy the Kadmat Beach. With its pearl white beaches, azure lagoon waters, comfortable atmosphere, and welcoming residents, it is a heaven for nature lovers. Both beaches have personnel assigned to beach upkeep and cleanliness as well as to swimmer security. Both beaches meet all 33 requirements set forth by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).
