Chautauqua Institution maintains four public beaches (University, Pier, Heinz, and Childrens) open daily and supervised by certified lifeguards during the summer season. Swimming is only allowed at our swim areas when lifeguards are on duty. Children must pass a deep end test unassisted at each beach in order to swim in deep water.
