“Today’s awards from environmental charity, Keep Britain Tidy, show that wherever you go on Thanet’s coastline you are sure of an award-winning beach that is well managed, clean and safe.

“We’re thrilled to once again receive so many prestigious awards for our beautiful beaches. Work takes place all year round to maintain our 19 miles of coastline to the high standards that our residents and visitors have come to expect.

“These awards can only be achieved with the continued hard work of council officers, partners, businesses, volunteers and residents who help keep our beaches as clean and enjoyable as possible.”

“The district received every award exactly as applied and we should be very proud of our five International Blue Flags and five Seaside Awards. It is testament to the cleanliness, quality and facilities that beachgoers can enjoy.”
