Wellington's south coast beaches are safe to swim again, Greater Wellington Regional Council has confirmed.

Samples taken between Owhiro Bay and Miramar Peninsula on Monday showed unsafe bacteria levels, which the council put down to run-off after wet weather.

Greater Wellington environmental scientist Summer Greenfield confirmed that samples taken again today showed the bacteria was back down to safe levels, as expected.
