Gozo & Comino recieve a Gold Award in the Quality Coast Awards 2012


In May, Torres Vedras in Portugal played host to the Quality Coast Awards where the president of the Quality Coast jury, prof. Francesco Taveira Pinto awarded certain regional government representatives with the 'Quality Coast Gold Award'. Among those to receive the Gold Award was Gozo, one of Authentic Adventures' favourite painting and walking destinations, along with Malta's other sister island, Comino.

At the event, the Quality Coast Top 100 was also revealed; highlighting the hundred holiday destinations that best maintained their local identity, their natural and cultural heritage, their scenic beauty and a clean environment. Gozo & Comino came 3rd, behind only the Azores and Ierapetra (Crete) who were 1st and 2nd respectively.

Quality Coast is a programme of the European Coastal and Marine Union, supported by the European Union. The Quality Coast Top 100 is the result of extensive research and a rigorous assessment of nearly 1000 coastal and island destinations, so this really is a great list to feature so highly on!
