Are there any in Spain?
We have been in the Costa Del Sol, in the Duquesa region on a few visits and although it is supposed to be a blue Flag beach, we are always dissapointed with the cleanliness of the beach. There always seems to be alot of rubbish and the dogs seem to use it as a toilet, not the dogs fault obviously but the owners!
I was just wondering if anyone could recommend any beaches? Preferably whiter sands than the Costa Del Sol area.

Here in Lanzarote, we have 9 Blue Flag beaches.
Pretty impressive for such a small island.

there are some fantastic beaches in and around Oliva. Natural sand dunes which are protected which fold away to long white sandy beaches. No buildings on or near the beach, no tall hotel buildings or apartment blocks, now they cannot build withiin 400M of the beach line this should hopefulyl remain the same.
It is paradise and more so because there are few people on it – even in the height of Summer

The area from Cabopino to Rio Real (Marbella) is fine white sand, cleaned every morning, no concrete, just sand dunes.

I second what Maria has said – I have just returned from a “research trip” to check out various towns, agents & beaches in Costa de la Luz and I came away very impressed with the beaches in the area.
I’m originally from Perth, Western Australia and what I found were beaches very similar to those I used to enjoy in Australia. They are wide swathes of white sand (cleaned daily I understand), and good facilities on or near the beach (cafes, restaurants, etc.)
My favourites were those NW of Puerto de Manta Maria, Rota, Barossa (near Chicalana I think) and Conil de la Frontera.
Yes, there was a steady but mild wind – but actually I think this cooling “sea breeze” is a good thing (and again reminded me of the wind in Perth off the Indian Ocean which cooled things down by several degrees – excellent for when its 30 degrees plus).
