Healthy Beaches Program

Phone:  321.633.2100, option 2


Coastal beach water samples are collected bi-monthly by the Florida Department of Health - Brevard County and are analyzed for enterococcus.  High concentrations of these bacteria may indicate the presence of microorganisms that could cause disease, infections, or rashes.  Environmental Health is responsible for issuing health advisories or warnings when these conditions are confirmed. 


All sample results are posted on the Florida Healthy Beaches Program website.


Map of Brevard County Beach Sampling Locations

The sampling sites are:  SP 2 Jetty Park, SP 3 Cocoa Beach Pier, SP 4 Cocoa Beach - Minutemen Cswy, SP 6 Pelican Beach Park, SP 7 Paradise Beach Park, SP 8 Indialantic Boardwalk, SP 9 Spessard Holland North, and SP 10 Sebastian Inlet North.

*We no longer sample SP 1 Canaveral National Sea Shore and SP 5 Patrick AFB North because they are federal property.


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Beach Advisory and Closing Online Notification (BEACON) system to provide the public a database of pollution occurrences for coastal recreation waters. To review nationwide beach advisories, closures, and sample results please visit:  http://watersgeo.epa.gov/beacon2/.
