“All eight seashores really useful by the federal government get Worldwide Blue Flag Certification,” he stated. The eight seashores are Shivrajpur (Dwarka-Gujarat), Ghoghla (Diu), Kasarkod and Padubidri (Karnataka), Kappad (Kerala), Rushikonda (AP), Golden Seashore (Odisha) and Radhanagar (A&N Islands). “An impressive feat, as no Blue Flag nation has ever been awarded for eight seashores in a single try,” he stated.
