Swimming advisory at Kitsilano & Sunset Beaches

7/28/2018
Due to high levels of bacteria in the water swimming and wading are not recommended at Sunset Beach and Kitsilano Beach, including Kitsilano Point in Vancouver.

Why is swimming not recommended at this beach?

High levels of E. coli bacteria in the water increase risk of gastro-intestinal illness to swimmers. VCH is working to monitor the water quality and remove the swimming advisory once the levels have decreased.

Want more information?

E. coli counts for the Vancouver-area beaches are updated every Friday, based on sampling results. See the latest beach water quality reports for more information.  (Current closures at Sunset Beach and Kitsilano Beach, including Kitsilano Point, are based on reports not yet available for posting. Please check back.)
