Ellis Landing Beach

Brewster, Massachusetts

Ellis Landing Beach is a rocky, long beach that is calm, peaceful, and family-friendly. The surrounding dunes provide a secluded atmosphere great for soaking up the rays. Like all Brewster bay beaches, the flats extend out at low tide, making a perfect playground for children to explore the tidal pools in search of small fish, shells, and crabs. The water is warm and the sand is soft and white. There is a small, handicap-accessible parking lot and portable toilets. There are no food concessions or lifeguards on duty. Resident parking stickers are $20 and seasonal parking stickers are $150. The weekly parking fee is $50 and the daily parking fee is $15. For more information, call (508) 896-4511.

SOURCE INFORMATION

The Brewster County Department of Health and the Environment, and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation conduct beach water sampling weekly in Brewster County, MA. Beaches in Brewster are sampled on a weekly basis. Water samples are taken on Monday, and water quality results are posted by Wednesday.

The water at marine beaches is tested for the presence of Enterococci, a group of bacterial species typically found in human and animal intestines and are therefore present in sewage. Enterococci is also referred to as indicator organisms. Indicator organisms are used to predict the presence of pathogenic, or disease-causing, organisms associated with fecal contamination.

Swim Guide checks for the latest information daily, Monday - Friday during the swimming season (May through September).

A beach is marked Green when less than 104 units of Enterococci / 100 ml of water is present in a single sample, or when the geometric mean of 5 samples contains less than 35 units / 100ml of water.

A beach is marked Red when more than 104 units of Enterococci / 100 ml of water is present in a single sample, or when the geometric mean of 5 samples contains more than 35 units / 100ml of water.

A beach is marked Grey when there is no current or reliable monitoring information available.
