It also aims at providing the necessary library services in the south of the island.

Gran Tarajal's beach gets awarded the Blue Flag again for the 2023 season

The beach of Gran Tarajal will fly its Blue Flag once again this year, which was awarded by the Health Council of the Canarian Government, through the General Public Health Department of the Canarian Health Service. This award confirms that the beach of Gran Tarajal complies with the essential criteria that Ayuntamientos are asked for to obtain the Blue Flag, which is based on four main parameters: Information and Environmental Education, Water Quality, Environmental management as well as safety and Services. The Blue Flag has become a world standard in touristic eco-quality, and this puts Gran Tarajal amongst the best urban beaches and harbours. One of the main criteria to obtain the Blue Flag is the quality of bathing water, which must be excellent, in every sampled area. Furthermore, it is essential to have boards with information about the beach, the coastal ecosystems and, if applicable, about natural protected spaces nearby, as well as the code of conduct in those spaces, and Ayuntamientos must organise a minimum of five environmental education activities. It is indispensable to fit the beaches with easy and safe access for people with reduced mobility. Furthermore, the beach must have first aid equipment, lifeguards and adequate rescue equipment. The Ayuntamiento must provide beach users with adequate waste management, including selective bins, and public toilets, including accessible toilets.
