Water Quality At Eastham Beaches

The quality of the water that we swim and play in is always a concern. The Barnstable County tests the quality of our ponds and Cape Cod Bay beaches weekly and posts the results graphically on their website. When there is a 'fail' due to bacteria they re-test the very next day, to minimize the beach closure. So far, there has only been two saltwater beach closures and 2 fresh water pond beach closures.

Check out the Barnstable County Department of Health website (& check the water!).
