Europeans can safely enjoy a swim this summer as 96% of bathing sites meet minimum quality requirements set out under EU rules.

Some 85% of bathing sites monitored across the EU in 2018 are judged as excellent in the European Environment Agency’s annual report, meaning they were mostly free from pollutants harmful to human health and the environment.

The countries with the highest number of bathing sites with excellent water quality are Malta, Cyprus, Greece and Austria.
