INDIA: Two more Indian beaches have made their way towards making it to the list of Blue Beaches, declared by Union Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav.

The two beaches are from Lakshadweep island. The first one is Minicoy Thundi Beach, followed by Kadmat Beach. This is a proud moment for all Indians because both beaches have received eco-labels for their cleanliness and sanitary surroundings.

Meanwhile, extending felicitation to the entire country, PM Narendra Modi took to Twitter and wrote, “This is great! Congratulations, particularly to the people of Lakshadweep, for this feat. India’s coastline is remarkable, and there is also a great amount of passion among our people to further coastal cleanliness.”

Last year, Eden Beach in Puducherry and Kovalam Beach in Tamil Nadu received the eminent title.

The certification is given by the Foundation for Environment Education in Denmark (FEE) to tourist spots for their high standards and uncompromising hygiene maintenance for the coastal areas, which especially attract most tourists.

The famous Thundi Beach is one of the most picturesque beaches on Lakshadweep Island; the crystal clear turquoise water surrounded by white sand makes it a perfect holiday destination.

Kadmat Beach is especially popular with cruises and water activities. Both beaches have specialised staff for beach cleanliness and maintenance, giving top-notch priority to the safety and security of swimmers.

The beaches managed to fulfil all 33 criteria as mandated by the Foundation for Environment Education (FEE).

The other Indian beaches listed in the blue list are Shivrajpur from Gujarat, Ghoghla from Diu, Kasarkod and Padubidri from Karnataka, Kappad from Kerala, Rushikonda from Andhra Pradesh, Golden from Odisha, Radhanagar from Andaman and Nicobar, Kovalam in Tamil Nadu and Eden in Pondicherry beaches.
