Looking for a patrolled beach?

Eurobodalla Shire has 83 beaches and a spectacular marine park coastline. You will see the red and yellow lifeguard flags on 8 of our popular beaches every day during the holiday period.

Staying safe in the surf

  • For water emergenices 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. You might not have time to put on a life jacket when you need it.
  • Your local Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) and Beach Safe are great sources of beach safety information
