This is our proposed 2020 beach list, now open for public comment. We monitor 64 popular high-use, high-risk saltwater swimming beaches throughout the state. We often do this in partnership with local government.
We sample for bacteria beginning the week of May 18 and through August 31st. You can see which beaches are closed on our interactive Beach Closure and Advisory map during the swimming and sampling season. We encourage you to bookmark this map on your smartphone.
