Swimming patrolled beaches and beach safety

Usually Cylinder and Main Beach are patrolled. Life Savers also patrol other beaches when weather conditions prevail. At times safe lagoons form along Cylinder and Home Beaches which are great for children or just lazing.

It is inadvisable to enter the ocean at other locations due to sudden rips, possible blue bottles and the occasional shark. Climbing down the headland rocks must be done with extreme caution particularly in rough conditions. Unfortunately lives have been lost.
