We're very lucky to have such a great beach here in Selby. It's a perfect place to swim, picnic and play throughout the year! Selby is a private beach for Selby property owners and associate members. Please see our associate member page for further information.
Is The Water Safe?
From what I have been told, we have very good water qualtiy here in Selby. Unfortunately, our Bay is very polluted and caution must be used whenever you swim in it. Ingesting Bay water can lead to bacteria being taken into the body which can cause a great deal of stomach upset similar to a stomach virus. Use caution when swimming with open cuts. Bacteria can get into open wounds and lead to infection. Refrain from swimming 24 hours after a rain storm. A hard rain can wash insecticides, fertilizers and other yard chemicals into the water which can make swimmers sick. After a good swim in the Bay, follow it up with a rinse down!
