There are 53 blue flag beaches in Occitanie and naturally most of them are by the sea - but not all of them. Aveyron department is a long way from the sea, but it does have a massive reservoir at Pareloup. Designed largely as compensation for the rivers Tarn, Lot and Aveyron the huge plan d'eau is also used for leisure activities and its beach at Salles-Curan has been awarded the prestigious blue flag for the second year. Criteria include quality of water, cleanliness of the beach, state of the equipment and rubbish collection (including tri selectif). There are five inspections each season if the flag is to be retained.
