Andalusia is the second autonomous community in obtaining the second highest number of blue flags awarded to its marinas and yacht clubs only surpassed by Catalonia. In this way, Andalusia receives a total of 22 awards (three more than in 2023) for marinas and yacht clubs, nine of which belong to Marinas de Andalucía. These blue flags accredit, among other aspects, the good state of conservation and the quality of the services provided by these port facilities. This season, the following marinas associated with Marinas de Andalucía will display the blue flag: in Cádiz, Puerto Sherry (El Puerto de Santa María) and Alcaidesa Marina (La Línea de la Concepción); in Malaga, Puerto de La Duquesa (Manilva), P. D. Estepona, Puerto Banús (Marbella), P.D. de Marbella and P.D. de Benalmádena; in Granada, P.D. Marina del Este (Almuñécar) and in Almería, P.D. de San José (Níjar).
