199 beaches in Attica approved for the quality of their waters

One hundred and ninety-nine beaches in the Attica Region have been approved for the quality of their waters.

The samples were carried out by the Directorate for Sanitary Engineering and Environmental Health of the Attica region.

Some of the beaches include Alimos, Nea Makri, Porto Rafti, Lagonisi, Vouliagmeni, Rafina, Anavyssos and Marathonas.

The Regional Governor of Attica, Giorgos Patoulis stated: “For the purity and adequacy of the waters on the beaches of Attica, extensive sampling checks were carried out this year throughout the coastal front of the basin, with the aim of the safety of bathers and travellers who visit us. Our goal is to ensure the water cleanliness and suitability of the beaches along the Attica Riviera and to showcase their natural beauty as an incentive to attract domestic and foreign visitors. With this in mind, we will continue to invest in Attica’s beaches with projects and interventions, promoting marine tourism to make Attica an even more attractive destination for its residents, domestic travellers, and foreign visitors. We work intensively to make our Attica a dynamic summer destination, ideally combining cultural events, alternative tourism options and maritime recreation.”
