The list of the cleanest beaches in Greece has been announced for this year. In this list, one can find once again Ofrynio Beach – Costa Ofrynio. The well-known and beloved Touzla, at the western end of the prefecture of Kavala, with its countless beauties for the visitor, deservedly won a Blue Flag for 2022.
