In a good-news report about the health and cleanliness of California beaches, stuck out like a sore thumb.
This year's annual survey of California beaches by Heal the Bay showed vast improvement in levels of bacteria and pollution across the board, with this year being one of the cleanest yet due to dry weather and strict runoff and pollution controls, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
"California beachgoers can head to the shore with little anxiety this summer, as their beaches are generally very clean," the report stated.
But Oyster Point was one of five beaches in San Mateo County to garner a "poor" rating, along with Pillar Point, Aquatic Park, Lakeshore Park and Kiteboard Beach.
Those beaches tend to be in enclosed areas that foster bacteria, according to the Chronicle.
Beachgoers might like to choose one of the four San Mateo County beaches that had the highest ratings: Sharp Park Beach, Rockaway Beach, Montara State Beach and Dunes Beach.
