Jaws Beach

New Providence, Bahamas

Jaws Beach was the filming site for the final installment in the "Jaws" movie series. As part of the Clifton Heritage Park acreage, the beach is protected above and below the water. This is a completely isolated beach, usually practically deserted, with white sand and rocky protrusions. Trees provide shade and the water is shallow, making it a good choice for families with kids.

SOURCES

Waterkeepers Bahamas monitors 17 beach sites within its region, on the islands of Bimini, Grand Bahama and the western-bays in New Providence. These samples are collected and processed by Waterkeepers Bahamas staff, volunteers and students Cadets.

All sites are marine (salt) water.

Water samples are tested for Enterococcus at all sites, utilizing the standardized US EPA criteria of 141 CFU/100 ml for collecting and analyzing water samples.

Sampling is collected all year long, but the frequency of collection is few during the colder months.

Water samples collected from April 1 to October 31. Samples are collected every 2 weeks. From November to March, samples are collected once per month. Samples are typically collected on Wednesdays or Thursdays.

Results are communicated through the Swim Guide app, and are also posted on the Save The Bays (www.savethebays.bs) website, and on social media for Waterkeepers Bahamas and Save The Bays.

Beaches are marked GREEN when single sample results are under 141 Enterococcus per 100 ml water.

Beaches are marked RED when single sample results are equal to or over 141 Enterococcus per 100 ml water. They have FAILED to meet water quality standards.

Beaches are marked GREY when there is no current information or water sample results.
