Beach Safety Resources

We all love a day at the beach. However, the surf can be unpredictable. That’s why lifesavers put up the red and yellow flags to show you the supervised and safest area to swim at each beach.

Staying safe and making the most of the coast requires knowledge and skills. The Beachsafe website is designed to help you learn about the beach, the science of the surf and the creatures in our oceans as well as surf skills and first aid.
