Eurobodalla Shire has 83 beaches and a spectacular marine park coastline.

Beach safety

Beaches can have hidden dangers, so always swim at patrolled beaches and stay between the red and yellow flags. No flags = no swim.

If you witness a water emergency outside patrolled locations, phone 000 and ask for Police.

  • Rips can be difficult to see, so always observe the rhythm and movement of the sea before entering the surf. If you're unsure about how to identify a rip, check with your local Surf Lifesaving club.
  • 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.

For more beach safety information contact your closest Surf Lifesaving Club or visit the Beach Safe website.

Local charity, The Bay Push, has also provided one child-sized and one adult-sized water wheelchair free for public use at Corrigans Beach.

The chairs need the assistance of a carer and are designed to float in calm sea waters.

Clyde View Caravan Park Manager Bob Carver has generously agreed to manage and store the chairs.

Enquiries for use of these chairs should be made to Clyde View Caravan Park on 4472 4224.
