Merimbula Bar Beach rating drops to fair
Merimbula’s Bar Beach has dropped from good to fair in the latest Office of Environment and Heritage Beachwatch results.
However fans of this popular beach can continue to swim and enjoy their favourite swimming spot, according to the Bega Valley Shire Council.
The latest round of tests show half of the Sapphire Coast tested beaches returned good results, and the other half returned fair. The other beaches to return a fair result were around Bermagui – Camel Rock beach, Horseshoe Bay beach and Beares beach.
“Swimmers are assured that all tested beaches are still classed as suitable for swimming under the Beachwatch scheme,” a council spokesperson said.
