Blue Flag award

Hayling Island seafront is a Blue Flag beach, meaning it is recognised by Keep Britain Tidy as a clean and safe stretch of coastline which offers excellent visitor facilities.

Each year, the beach must comply with a strict criteria to be given this award - a full list of criteria can be found on the Seaside Awards website.

The Blue Flag is flown during peak season and can be seen at three sites along the seafront:

  1. At the entrance to the Blue Flag beach, between Beachlands office and Funlands amusement arcade
  2. At the central reservation near to 'Inn on the Beach' restaurant
  3. Near the Hayling Island Golf Club

The flag is flown daily between 10am and 5pm when beach patrols and other facilities are available.
