Beaches

Looking for a patrolled beach?

Eurobodalla Shire has 83 beaches and a spectacular marine park coastline. You’ll see the red and yellow flags and life guarding patrols on 8 of our most popular beaches every day during the main holiday period:

Remember: No flags = no swim

Always swim at patrolled beaches and stay between the red and yellow flags.

Staying safe in the surf

  • If you witness a water emergency outside patrolled locations, phone 000 and ask for Police.
  • Rips can be difficult to see. Take time to check the rhythm and movement of the sea before entering the surf.  Learn how to identify a rip. Your local Surf Lifesaving club can help.
  • Calm bays and protected beaches are the safest places to enjoy swimming and snorkeling.
  • Avoid swimming or surfing in rough seas, and never go into the water when safety warnings or beach closures are in force.
  • Board riders, please keep your boards away from flagged areas, for your own and others’ safety.
  • Always wear a life jacket when boating, kayaking or fishing. Sea and surf conditions can change quickly, and you might not have time to put on a life jacket when you suddenly need it.
  • Your local Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) and Beach Safe are great sources of beach safety information
