It’s always nice when something good gets made official and Greece has officially been named as one of the top five countries for the quality of its bathing waters.

This accolade comes after a report made by the European Environment Agency which found that at least 95% of the country’s bathing water was of excellent quality.

It is long recognised that swimming in the sea can actively improve your health and wellbeing.

Many of us believe in the healing powers of the ocean. With an endless supply of minerals, amino acids and micro-organisms it is even said to have antibacterial effects.

With Greece just a week away from re-opening to tourism now is a great time to come and immerse yourself in all that it has to offer.

Come and enjoy the sunshine and swim safe in the knowledge that you are swimming in some of the cleanest bathing waters in the world.
