The annual ranking of the beach has been largely maintained as “Good” since 2002, and was changed to "Fair" in 2015, 2016 and 2019. During a bathing season, the beach mostly achieves Grade 1, while occasionally it fluctuates to Grade 2.
During and after periods of heavy rain, many beaches are likely to be more polluted than the beach grades suggest. Bathers should avoid swimming at beaches for up to three days after a storm or heavy rain.
The public are also advised to avoid swimming at "Grade 4" beaches until the water quality has improved.
