Banderas Bay is one of the largest bays in the world and it is home to Puerto Vallarta and the southern part of Riviera Nayarit, two emblematic destinations that have some of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. But not only do they offer beauty to their visitors, but also the assurance that they are clean beaches, suitable for the recreational use of all.
A clean beach always invites to be visited and enjoyed. For some years now, the environmental authorities of our country have taken on the task of measuring the degree of cleanliness of our nation’s beaches and, since then, both Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit can boast of having high standards of care and cleaning on its coastlines.
All the beaches in the bay that have been revised have shown satisfactory data; but, in addition, some of them already have the Blue Flag distinction, an international beach cleaning standard that takes into account established criteria of quality, safety, education and environmental information. Amapas, Camarones, Conchas Chinas I, Conchas Chinas II, Garza Blanca, Palmares, Playa de Oro, Sheraton Beach, Nuevo Vallarta North and Marina Riviera Nayarit are the beaches that have the Blue Flag distinction.
The beaches of our bay invite you to enjoy its beauty and cleanliness, but also to keep them at least in the same condition in which you found them the day of your visit. In this way, you not only ensure a healthy environment for visitors, but also for the entire marine and terrestrial ecosystem that is around them.
Now you know, If in your next vacation you want to enjoy beautiful and clean beaches, without a doubt, Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit are your best option.
