the beach is my happy place

Most people LOVE going to the beach! Everyone is excited for the summer weather and people have started getting swim suit ready! The only question now, is which beach should you visit? Luckily, the Swim Guide app can help you figure that out!  “Swim Guide is built and powered by Waterkeepers to connect you to beaches and swimming holes everywhere.” Here are some features of Swim Guide:

  • Discover a wide variety of beaches, ranging from city parks to remote lakes ideal for camping
  • Identify at a glance which beaches are clean for swimming (Green) and which have water quality problems (Red)
  • Get walking, driving, or transit directions to the beach of your choice
  • Bookmark beaches for easy access
  • Share your love for the best swimming holes on social media
  • Help protect your waterway by reporting pollution or environmental concerns

The app is free and can make your beach hunting experience a lot easier! Download it here:

The following cities now have “Waterkeeper Beaches” attached to them:
