City beaches that have no litter washed up on the beach will probably have clean water. It is difficult to know how much litter has been washed up because tractors rake the litter up.

City beaches which have the most litter washed up will also have the most polluted water. If you think your beach is badly polluted, it is best not to put your face in the seawater.
