New Providence, Bahamas

Adelaide Beach is off the beaten path, which is either a bonus or a drawback, depending on your point of view. On the south side of New Providence Island within the small village of Adelaide, the beach here is long and virtually empty during the week. On weekends it is popular with local residents, who hang out under the shade trees.

Water samples are tested for Enterococcus at all sites, utilizing the standardized US EPA criteria of 104 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.
