    Labor Day Weekend – September 5-7, 2020

    California State Parks – Monterey District is working with neighboring agencies on beach closures for all Monterey County beaches for the upcoming Labor Day Weekend. Similar closure/mitigation efforts that were in place for the July 4th weekend will be implemented:

    • California State Parks will partner with local agencies to release a joint, unified message that all Monterey County beaches are closed for the Labor Day Weekend (September 5-7, 2020). A hard closure will be in effect with exceptions for water activities and active recreation.
    • All California State Beach parking lots will be closed.

    California State Parks is asking for the public’s cooperation at this time when our state is severely impacted by the multiple fires burning throughout the state, including fires in Monterey County and in the neighboring counties of Santa Cruz and San Benito. Your assistance is appreciated!

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
