Vanderbilt Beach

Centerport, New York

*Monitoring frequency is not available for this beach.
The Vanderbilt Beach overlooks Northport Bay in Centerport, Long Island. There is beach access located close to the Vanderbilt Museum and Planetarium right off of County Road 86. The Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum is a unique combination of mansion, marine and natural history museum, planetarium and park, that is dedicated to the education and enjoyment of the people of Long Island. The 43-acre museum complex features the Gold Coast-era mansion (1910-1936), a marine museum, natural history habitats, curator's cottage, seaplane hangar, boathouse, gardens, fountains, pools, and numerous other estate features. You will also find marine and natural history specimens, house furnishings, photographs and archives. The Planetarium is temporarily closed for renovations but will re-open mid-October 2012.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.

Suffolk County Health Services tests the water quality from Mid May - Mid Sept. Tier I beaches are tested 2-3 times per week and Tier II beaches are tested at least once per week, with more frequent testing at beaches where water quality changes often. Tier II beaches are retested if a sample exceeds water quality standards. Tier 1 beaches are closed after one sample exceedance and retested daily until reopened.

The samples are taken at knee depth, near known and potential pollution sources and from the most popular swimming spots.

Tier III beaches are tested once a month.

A marine beach is marked Green when there are equal to or less than 104 units of Enterococci per 100 ml of water and when the 30-day geometric mean contains 35 units / 100ml of water or less.

A freshwater beach is marked Green when single sample results are 235 units of E.coli per 100 ml of water or less and when the 30-day geometric mean contains less than 126 units / 100ml of water or less.
