Beach and Sea Safety

Supervised beaches in Italy have a system of coloured flags to let the public know about the swimming conditions. The code is:

Green = Safe to swim 

Yellow = Caution 

Red = Danger 

Double Red Flag = Swimming forbidden

Purple  =  Marine pest present (jelly fish etc.)

Most beaches in Italy are private, though there are free beaches (spiaggia libera) as well.  Some of them are equipped with showers and public toilets. Private beaches rent out sunbeds (lettino) and parasols (ombrellone) and they tend to be cleaner than free beaches. 

Italy lies in the Mediterranean Sea, however the waters of the Adriatic Sea (part of the Mediterranean) run the length of the east coast.  

The Blue Flag (Bandiera Blu)

is an eco label award for beaches with good practices in terms of water quality, environmental management, safety & services and environmental education. It was introduced in France in 1985 under the name "Pavillon Bleu" and is now used in 41 countries across the world.
