Beach Advisory for June 27 to July 1


The Department of Planning and Natural Resources’ Beach Water Quality Monitoring Program evaluates weekly water quality at popular swimming beaches throughout the territory by sampling for enterococci, bacteria and turbidity, which is a measure of water clarity.

DPNR performed water quality analysis at 18 designated beaches throughout the territory during the week of June 27 to July 1. The following beaches meet water quality standards and are considered safe for swimming and fishing:

St. Thomas 
Lindbergh Bay Vessup Bay Coki Point
Brewers Bay Hull Bay Secret Harbor
Bolongo Bay Lindqvist Beach
Magens Bay Bluebeard’s Beach
Sapphire Beach Frenchman’s Bay
St. John 
Cruz Bay
Great Cruz Bay
Frank Bay
Oppenheimer Beach
Johnson Bay
Water Island 
Honeymoon Beach


Samples were not collected on St. Croix as well as at Water Bay on St. Thomas, therefore, the water quality at these beaches is unknown.

For additional information regarding water quality, call the Division of Environmental Protection at 340-773-1082 on St. Croix or 340-774-3320 on St. Thomas.
