Forbes Living Reports on the Cleanest Beaches in the U.S.

Dewey Beach, Delaware -- one of the cleanest in the U.S.

Summer vacations are in full swing and many people are heading to the beaches on each coast and at lakes for a relaxing break from the daily grind. Forbes Living would like to share information about the cleanest beaches to visit this year.

According to a report from the Environmental Protection Agency, ten percent of samples taken from US coastal and lake beaches failed to meet federal safety standards for bacteria and viruses. The polluted water at some beaches stems from storm run-off and sewage overflows near where people swim and sunbathe. In light of this, there are some stellar beaches where vacationers can enjoy clean water.  The US agency puts these five areas at the top of their list:
  • Delaware: Dewey Beach-Swedes in Sussex County
  • Florida: Bowman's Beach in Lee County
  • Georgia: Tybee Island North in Chatham County
  • Massachusetts: Singing Beach in Essex County
  • New Jersey: Stone Harbor at 96th St. in Cape May County
These are all popular locations for family vacations every summer. Other places to visit where water quality sample results were favorable are:
  • The Delmarva Peninsula area on the East Coast
  • Delaware, New Hampshire and New Jersey
The Forbes Living talk show invites readers to explore these clean coastal areas. There is so much to do and enjoy there that everyone will be happy. Take a dip in the water knowing that no bacteria or viruses will cause illness or a rash this summer. Enjoy!
