Life’s a Beach


Recently the 2014/2015 annual beach report was released and I was very sad to see that the worst beach this past year is actually located in Santa Cruz. According to Heal the Bay, only 13 of the beaches monitored statewide received D to F grades during summer dry weather and the worst rated beach in California was Cowells Beach located by the Santa Cruz wharf next to the boardwalk. Here is a list of the 2015 reports of beaches to stick away from!
