Environmental group Heal the Bay released its 22nd Annual Beach Report Card last Thursday. Two beaches made the report’s Honor Roll. Encinal Canyon at El Matador State Beach and Las Flores State Beach received A+ grades, but four Malibu beaches made the Beach Bummer list, a tally of the most polluted beaches in California.

On  the positive side were Nicholas Beach, Walnut Creek, Puerco State Beach, Malibu Point, Big Rock, Pena Creek and Castlerock Beach, which all received As for their summer dry weather reading. Additionally, Leo Carrillo, Broad Beach, Paradise Cove and Carbon Beach received Bs.

In the 2010-2011 report, all Malibu beaches escaped the Beach Bummer List. This year, Puerco Beach at Marie Canyon, Surfrider Beach, Solstice Canyon Beach and Escondido Beach were all given F grades and placed on the Beach Bummer list. Topanga State Beach just south of Malibu also made the list this year and last year.
