The water at the Levante – Caletes and Dunas beaches is excellent. This is the result of the Bathing Water Quality Surveillance and Information Program in Catalonia prepared by the Catalan Water Agency (ACA) for the 2021 bathing season.

The excellent classification of Santa Susanna’s bathing water from a health point of view complements the prestige that the beach already has among bathers and tourists who visit the town. In fact, the City Council pays special attention to the health and hygiene of the coastline to ensure that the inhabitants of the municipality and visitors and tourists have a bathing area of ​​the highest quality.

Control of 255 bathing zones

This year, the Surveillance Program has been carried out in 255 coastal bathing areas (87 in the coastal area of ​​Girona, 85 in Tarragona and 83 in Barcelona) and 13 inland bathing areas (5 in Lleida, 4 in Barcelona, ​​​​3 in Girona and 1 in Tarragona).

At the end of the bathing season, the ACA proceeds to evaluate the classification of the water quality of each bathing area and put them into categories: Excellent, Good, Sufficient, Insufficient.

This guarantees a result adjusted to reality and away from the conjunctural fact of the moment.
