County Waterford is renowned for its 100 km long stunning coastline. For those wishing to walk, jog, swim, explore rock-pools, surf, scuba dive, fish, kite surf, observe wildlife or just relax, there is a place for you! As part of its efforts to enhance this natural tourism attraction and provide amenities to the public and ensure good water quality, Waterford City & County Council is committed to ongoing management and stringent monitoring of the 30 bathing water areas dotted along the coast. Lifeguards are provided at Dunmore, Tramore, Bunmahon, Clonea and Ardmore.

Credit must be paid to the Tidy Towns and Coastcare groups which, through their commitment to voluntary and community activities, play an essential role in caring for local bathing areas.

Keep an eye out at beach notice boards for water test results and other beach information and advice. Results and information are also posted on the council’s website http://www.waterfordcouncil.ie and on the EPA’s website SPLASH!

Members of the public and interest groups are encouraged to provide suggestions on beach and coastal management in the county.
