Excellent Bathing Water Quality at Most Beaches in Dalmatia
Summer might be over, but that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped caring about the Adriatic’s most popular natural treasure: beaches.
The tenth regular testing of bathing water quality in 2017 has been carried out in the period between September 25 and October 5. All the samples collected along the Dalmatian coast passed the test in accordance with the Regulation on sea bathing water quality, reports Dalmacija danas on October 10, 2017.
Out of 157 beaches located in Split-Dalmatia County, bathing water quality at 149 of them got marked as ‘excellent’. Four beaches got the second-best mark, ‘good’: Česminica beach in Sućurje on Hvar island, Krilo and Bajnice in Dugi Rat near Omiš, and Duhanska stanica in Trogir. Bathing water quality was assessed as ‘sufficient’ at the following four beaches: Gojača in Kaštel Sućurac, Kamp in Kaštel Gomilica, the beach in Vranjic and the beach in Stobreč.
Šibenik-Knin County placed even better – out of 99 beaches, bathing water quality was marked as ‘sufficient’ at a single beach (Skradin), while the other 98 were marked as ‘excellent’.
Out of 93 beaches in Zadar County, bathing water quality was marked as ‘excellent’ at 91 locations, while the remaining two got the ‘good’ mark – city beaches Borik and Jadran in Zadar.
In Dubrovnik-Neretva County, bathing water quality is ‘excellent’ at 113 beaches. Two more, Ušće Ploče in Ploče and the city beach Banje in Korčula were marked as ‘good’, while the remaining beach Portina in Ploče was assessed as ‘sufficient’.
As you can see, there isn’t a single beach in the whole of Dalmatia where bathing water quality is poor. A fact to be proud of!
