Cyprus’ beaches have the best water quality in the EU for 2019

Cyprus had the highest proportion of bathing sites with excellent water quality in the European Union with 99.1.%, according to a report by the European Commission and the European Environment Agency (EEA) published on Monday.

The survey covered 113 bathing sites in Cyprus of which 112 were found to be of excellent quality.

The EU said that overall the quality of Europe’s bathing water remains high, according to this year’s European bathing water quality assessment. Just under 85% of swimming sites across Europe monitored in 2019 met the European Union’s highest and most stringent ‘excellent’ quality standards.

The results published by the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the European Commission give a good indication where swimmers can find the best quality bathing waters.
