2. Staithes Beach, Yorkshire
Staithes are not the warmest of the beaches but they were pretty popular among the surfers. However, recently a group called ‘Surfers Against Sewage’ declared the beach as the worst one in Europe. Swimming in the water of the Staithes beach cause skin related problems. Actually, the beach is really polluted due to mixing the run offs from local farms. The water does not even meet the European standard for Bathing sports. However, the beach has not yet been classified as NSB – Not Safe for Bath. But, we expect it to happen soon if the rate of pollution continues the same way.
