      Hi, I am Francesca, totally new and just did the intro session to open water swimming today (it was amazing!). I am really close to South Beach on Staten Island and wondered if anyone swims over there / or could share experience/knowledge of it?

      Thanks in advance!

      Hi Francesca
      South Beach has NYC lifeguards on the same schedule as Brighton Beach. I like to check water quality there before I swim. I find Brighton cleaner, and well worth the drive over the bridge.

      Thanks so much Lesa! I don’t have a car so proximity is the main reason I am thinking about South Beach. I appreciate the link you sent–a good tool to help me decide where to go day to day.

      Thanks very much!

      Francesca
