Cobble Clean Initiative

Cobble Beach is proud to introduce our “Cobble Clean” initiative – our response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Safe Travels Accreditation

Cobble Beach is delighted to announce it has been awarded the #SafeTravels Stamp. The Safe Travels Stamp is an international symbol designed to allow travellers to recognize governments and companies around the world, which have adopted health and hygiene, standardized protocols –so consumers can experience ‘Safe Travels’.

TIAO President & CEO, Christopher Bloore said “We are delighted to confirm Cobble Beach has been awarded the #SafeTravels Stamp. Across Canada, tourism businesses big and small are doing all they can to offer Canadians the perfect vacation. More and more Canadians are looking closer to home to escape from the challenges of and rediscovering their own provinces. When they see the ‘Safe Travels Stamp’ has been awarded to the destination or hotel they’re planning to visit they will know that they are upholding the highest standards of health and safety and demonstrating they are adhering to the global health protocols issued by the WTTC.”
