The Department of Environmental Health has closed the ocean shoreline at the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge and Border Field State Park due to sewage-contaminated flows from the Tijuana River.
The closure area includes beaches from the south end of Seacoast Drive to the International Border.
The closure means the ocean water off limits.
Signs will remain in place until sample results indicate the water is safe for recreational use.
The access road to Friendship Park, within Border Field State Park, may also be affected with sewage-impacted runoff and should be avoided, officials warned.
