When considering the best places to have a dip in the waters, you may first think of the Bahamas or the Mediterranean. However, it turns out that Norfolk's beaches are also among the best for having a splash about.
A survey carried out by Anglian Water has revealed the shores surrounding the county are home to some of East Anglia's premier bathing waters.
And in the survey, which stretched across the coast of the east, Norfolk came up trumps, with all 15 inspected receiving good or excellent ratings.
In fact, all but four of those included received an excellent verdict, with those still being rated as good.
So be it off Great Yarmouth or the shores of Sheringham, you can always find somewhere to bathe in Norfolk.

Lucinda Gilfoyle, Anglian Water's coastal strategy manager, said: 'We have an enormous stretch of coastline in the east and caring for it is hugely important to us, so we're really proud that all bar one of the 49 beaches have passed or exceeded the strict standards for water quality for the past 13 consecutive years.
'Ultimately we want every single one of the bathing waters to be excellent and to make sure our much-loved bathing waters and beaches remain open and a main attraction for decades to come.'
