An initiative of the Legambiente environmental organization, the awareness campaign Clean Up the Med involves more than 1,500 locations in 21 Mediterranean countries, aiming to draw attention on the pollution of the Mediterranean Sea and motivate communities to work together to change the situation.

The actions of Clean Up the Med are also considered as a major award criterion for the Blue Flag program.

As part of the campaign, the volunteers of the Creta Maris Beach Resort cleaned the area from the Kastri/Creta Maris beach until the archaeological site of Kastri.

Furthermore, the volunteers of the Tui Magic Life Candia Maris cleaned the beach of Ammoudara in collaboration with the Municipality of Malevizi and other hotels of the area, collecting a total of 50 bags of litter.
