Cyprus offers the cleanest bathing water in Europe!

Every year, the European Environment Agency (EEA) compiles bathing water data gathered by local authorities at more than 22,000 sites across the 27 European Union Member States, Croatia and Switzerland in order to assess the water quality. More than two thirds of the sites are coastal beaches, with rivers and lakes making up the remainder. The samples are analysed in labs to ascertain levels of certain types of bacteria, including intestinal enterococci and Escherichia coli bacteria. These may indicate the presence of pollution, mainly from sewage or livestock waste. Sites are classified as compliant with mandatory values, compliant with the more stringent guidelines, or non-compliant. Although Cyprus always fares remarkably well, it particularly stood out this year with all listed bathing sites achieving excellent water quality! More information and the full report can be found on the EEA's bathing water website.
