The top six nations with the cleanest swimming water in Europe all returned excellent standards in over 90% of tested waters.

Three countries with the greatest number of polluted swimming spots were Italy (109 locations or 1.9%), Spain (67 locations or 3.1%) and France (105 locations or 3.1%). Estonia (5.6%, Ireland (5.1%), Holland (4.9%), and Sweden (3.6%) all were worse off with a higher percent of poor quality swimming spots.
