Due to high levels of bacteria in the water swimming and wading are not recommended at Whytecliff Beach in West Vancouver.
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.
E. coli counts for the Vancouver-area beaches are updated every Friday, based on sampling results provided by Metro Vancouver. See the latest beach water quality reports
for more information.
