Bathing Water Quality

Sandgate beach has excellent bathing water quality. We are proud to receive the Seaside Award qualification for the past 8 years.

This page displays recent quality checks.

The tests are done to check compliance with standards set in the Bathing Water Directive. The Directive sets limits for a number of substances, and all countries in the EU have to ensure their popular beaches meet these standards. 


Sandgate Beach Bathing Water Quality is excellent!
