ZAGREB, 6 June 2021 – The most recent testing of swimming water quality at beaches along the Croatian coast has been completed.
The quality monitoring, which took place from 17.05.2021 until 03.06.2021, revealed once again that Croatia remains home to one of the cleanest waters to swim in Europe.
The swimming water quality at 997 of the nation’s beaches was tested and then graded into four categories – excellent, good, sufficient, and poor.
Out of all 997 beaches tested, 993, or 99.60% of them, were declared ‘excellent’ quality.
Three beaches were graded as ‘good’, whilst only 1 beach was graded as ‘sufficient’.
Not one beach failed to test in the ‘poor’ category.
Testing will be conducted periodically throughout the summer. Assessments are determined on the basis of criteria defined by Regulation on sea bathing water quality and the EU Directive on the management of bathing water quality.
Croatia has been testing swimming water quality since 1989 and has dominated the top three places in Europe for water quality together with Cyprus and Malta.
