It is important to take care for your own safety and that of your loved ones when visiting any beach. Stay informed about the current conditions, and any recent events that may be considered a risk.
When the flags are up, please swim between the flags.
This is a relatively quiet beach, and is not permanently patrolled, so consider your safety in the water if you're on your own. Make use of the most up-to-date information from the WA Government and WA Surf Life Saving.
Avoid complacency. Nature can be both beautiful and brutal. You should be alert that predators may be in the area. Whilst it is very rare to have an encounter, it may happen. Knowing what conditions and other factors may put you at potential risk, allows you to make an informed decision about what you should do.
Awareness and knowledge is better than fear, so find out more about shark safety and check shark activity and reporting at the WA Government SharkSmart
and download the SharkSmart App from the site or directly through the App Store or Google Play.
