Beaches

TThe Central Coast has 15 patrolled coastal beaches and one patrolled ocean pool complex being The Grant McBride Baths at The Entrance. To increase patron safety, lifeguards and volunteers patrol the beaches during the warmer months.

Central Coast Council lifeguards and Surf Life Saving volunteers provide search and rescue services for our coastal beaches as well as emergency medical care when required. They also play an important role in educating swimmers and visitors on beach and water safety.

Find out more about our beaches including which ones are currently open and beach safety, as well as our frequently asked questions below.

Beachwatch

Each year, in the swimming season from October to April, Central Coast Council monitors water quality for swim-safety once a week and reports on the water quality of 32 local swimming areas. This includes 15 ocean beaches, four lagoon sites and 13 tidal baths and rock pools. Outside of the swimming season from May to September sites are sampled monthly.

Results of our Beachwatch monitoring are updated on our Beachwatch Program page, as well as the Office of Environment and Heritage Beachwatch website.
