Safety and Water Quality Assurance

The regional government ensures that all these sites are not only enjoyable but also safe for everyone. Regular quality checks are performed, and in instances of unexpected pollution such as storm surges or the occasional bloom of cyanobacteria (those pesky blue-green algae!), alerts are immediately issued. Bathing sites could be temporarily shut down to ensure public safety, providing an additional layer of assurance for your family’s health and safety.

Swimming Tips for a Safe Summer

Before you dive in, the Service Public de Wallonie (SPW) offers some savvy tips for swimmers: avoid alcohol before swimming, wet your neck before taking the plunge to prevent shock, and avoid sudden dives, especially after long periods in the sun to prevent cold water shock. A little preparation ensures your swimming adventure is both safe and enjoyable.

So, whether you’re plotting a weekend getaway or looking for a cool dip after a long hike, Wallonia’s 26 swimming sites in 2024 are ready to welcome you with open arms and refreshing waters.
