This dataset contains the report on bathing water quality in Greece for the year 2013 and the coastal monitoring data on which it was based. The report was drafted under the responsibility of the Special Secretariat for Water (EGY) of the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change (YPEKA) within the framework of the ʻMonitoring Programme of Bathing Water Quality in Greeceʼ (http://www.ypeka.gr/Default.aspx?tabid=253&language=el-GR). The report was based on sampling conducted in 2,164 monitoring points in Greek territory, which included analyses of microbiological parameters (Intestinal Entercocci and Escherichia coli) and visual observations and on their classification as this was made in accordance with Directive 2006/7/EC, taking into account the results of observations/analyses from the years 2010-2013. A detailed report on the results for the year 2013 was submitted to the European Commission within the prescribed period through the European Environment Information and Observation Network (EIONET) and is available online at: http://cdr.eionet.europa.eu/gr/eu/nbwd/envuse2rw/
