Noted! Cape Town, the First Blue Flag City

Cape Town is not just the capital city of South Africa but is also known to be one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world! 

 Here’s a much lesser known fact about the city of Cape Town. It was the first city in the world to receive a blue flag status outside of Europe. This is an international certification that is given by the Foundation of Environmental Education for beaches, marinas, and sustainable boating tourism acknowledging their high environmental and quality standards. In December 2016, 10 of Cape Town's beaches were certified with the Blue Flag status for their high-quality waters, facilities, safety, cleanliness and hygiene of its beaches. 

From breathtaking natural sights, rich wine culture, divine food and warm people, the city of Cape has it all. It was voted as the best place to visit by the New York Times in the year 2014 beating 51 other countries in the world.

I don’t know about you, but this is definitely my next travel destination!
