September 21, 2017

Tobacco Bay’s Beach Bar & Cafe concession remains open for service while the ocean bay is temporarily closed to swimmers, the concession holder said today.

300 Days like this a perfect for the beach and Tobacco Bay is a beautiful one

Yesterday the Ministry of Health advised that Tobacco Bay Beach “has been closed to swimmers due to higher than normal levels of water-borne bacteria.”

“The Department of Health conducts regular testing of seawater and has closed the beach to swimmers and watersports today, due to bacterial levels above the Department’s acceptable limit,” the Ministry said.

“Further testing and evaluation is underway and the beach will reopen once bacteria levels drop to normal. Inclement weather and wind direction can have an effect on bacterial levels.”

However, while the beach is closed to swimmers, the Tobacco Bay’s Beach Bar & Cafe clarified that, “In the meantime, our concession continues to offer live local entertainment daily, featuring weekend Sundowners throughout the Fall, with “Friday Bonfires with $15 Beer & Burger specials, Saturday Beat the Clock Happy Hours, Sunday Island Parties & cool Special Events.”

    Why so tight lipped? Minister Wilson, what is the suspected source, what kind of bacteria was detected, what health issues could be caused for humans, why is Fort St.Catherines’ beach not included in the eastern chart?

    If they have the Fort St. Catherines data but are with holding it that is not very transparent and one would speculate it could mean that the levels have been over the guild line for a long time and no one said or did anything there for to stop it for being more of a problem the data is being withheld. i hope that is not what is happening though because that is not transparent but may be in Bermuda’s best interest. so i will coupe with it for now
