CHECK BEACH WATER TEMPERATURES

If you’re planning a beach getaway this summer (with or without genie sidetrips in the offing), check the coastal temperatures where you’ll be surfing, swimming, or wading. It may help you decide between a wetsuit and a bathing suit!

You might also want to consider checking the beach water quality (hungry sharks aren’t the only hazard you may encounter!). Thanks to a partnership between dozens of states and communities and groups that include the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Earth 911, you can check for advisories due to high levels of bacteria and other hazards.

Site includes beaches on all three coasts (Atlantic, Pacific, & Gulf), plus AK, HI, and U.S. territories.
