Mojácar Tourism Councillor, Emmanuel Agüero, was recently given the pleasant task of receiving the Spanish Tourism Quality (‘SICTED’) award, created by the Secretary of State for Tourism, for five of the town’s beaches.
The beaches of Venta el Bancal, Ventanicas, Piedra Villazar, Descargador and Marina de la Torre were selected for this ‘Tourist Quality Commitment’ honour, which recognizes and accredits the work done in order to meet their rigorous set of requirements.
This prestigious acknowledgement, from the Secretary of State for Tourism, is in addition to the ‘Blue Flag’ awards that are granted annually by the European Foundation for Environmental Education, which fly on Mojácar’s beaches every summer.
This stamp confirms the efforts made over the years by the Tourism Department to present one of the town’s most important attractions at its optimum. It also gives credit to the economic and human investment put into Mojácar’s beaches, which have resulted in increased services, personnel and quality facilities.
These efforts are not, however, confined to the beach, but extend to all the services on offer in Mojácar, so this is not the first SICTED distinction received. The town´s Tourism Office has had the SICTED quality award every year since 2105 and was the first Tourism Office in Andalucía to have the Seal of Family Tourism, granted by the Spanish Federation for Families, along with the ‘Q’ certificate for Quality Tourism.
