Shame it is salted water…!

Actually, you would not have any problem enjoying the sea throughout Greece as 99.8 % of the sampling points have been assessed as suitable for swimming, according to the European Directive 2006/7/EC.

The assessment concerns the evaluation of microbiological parameters in more than 2150 sampling points across Greece and the statistical analysis of the results over a 4 year period.
