- Always swim under supervision. Read and obey the signs
- If you are unsure of surf conditions, ask a lifeguard/lifesaver
- Dont swim directly after a meal
- Dont swim under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Never run or dive in the water, even if you have checked before as water conditions can change

- Keep the beach clean, put your rubbish in a bin and keep off the dune areas
