Beaches & Foreshore Reserves

Patrolled Beaches

Lifeguard services operate during the Summer months.  Lifesavers are only on duty when the red and yellow flags are displayed.

Council contributes funding to Summer lifeguard services at Cowes, Smiths Beach, Cape Woolamai and Inverloch. If you are planning a trip to the beach, visit one that is patrolled and swim between the flags.

Dates for Summer patrols can be found on the Surf Lifesaving Victoria website.
