  • May 2, 2014 Latest Coastal Beach Swimming Advisory Information: Swimming Advisories Remain for South Beach at the Lighthouse and 5th St. Crossover Beach on St. Simons Island;St. Andrews and Clam Creek Beach on Jekyll Island

    The Glynn County Health Department has issued advisories for South Beach at the lighthouse (from 9th Street to the pier) and 5th Street Crossover Beach (from Cedar Street to 9th Street) on St. Simons Island. The advisories for St. Andrews Beach (from Macy Lane to the St. Andrews picnic area) and Clam Creek Beach (from Clam Creek to the old north picnic area) on Jekyll Island and remain in place.

    These advisories are only for the area(s) specified above and do not impact any other beaches on the islands. This beach water advisory is to alert the public of a possible risk of illness associated with water contact but does not mean the beach is closed.

    The areas will be retested and the advisories will be lifted when tests show the bacteria levels meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s recommended standards.
