The annual Bathing Water report, published today, shows that in 2021 almost 85% of Europe’s bathing water sites met the European Union’s most stringent ‘excellent’ water quality standards. The assessment gives a good indication of where swimmers can find the best quality bathing sites across Europe this summer. The assessment, put together by the European Environment Agency (EEA) in cooperation with the European Commission, is based on the monitoring of 21 859 bathing sites across Europe. These cover the EU Member States, Albania and Switzerland throughout 2021.
