- Local beach contact information listed by state. You can also find EPA contacts for your regional office. The Beach Advisory and Closing On-line Notification (BEACON) system gives the latest information about monitored beaches, but states vary in how quickly they report information to EPA.
- Beach dos and don'ts: Be safe and help protect the beach.
- Sun safety: Protect yourself and your kids from the sun while enjoying time on the sand and in the water. For example, understand and use the UV Index.
- Look at surf cams: see what your beach looks like.
- Weather: from the National Weather Service.
