Bathing Water Quality results in Tendring

Tourism is an important strand to our local economy, worth more than £1million per day, and having good water quality is a key driver to encourage people to the Essex Sunshine Coast; which is why we’re delighted all of our water sampling points are good or excellent, and why we hold four Blue Flags and six Seaside Awards.


Tendring has four Blue Flags (Brightlingsea, Dovercourt Bay, Walton and Frinton) and six seaside awards. Water quality is excellent at Dovercourt, Frinton, Holland-on-Sea and Brightlingsea and water quality is good at Walton and Clacton, Clacton Martello and Jaywick Sands.
