Safe Swimming

The safe place to swim is down the south end of Port Waikato at Sunset Beach, where the Surf Life Saving Club patrols the beach. The club has guards on duty each weekend from Labour Weekend through to Easter, and right throughout the week during school summer holidays.

The rugged West Coast is known for its pounding surf with treacherous rips and strong undertows. Take care when playing in the water, and whenever possible, swim between the flags in front of the Surf Life Club.

For a tamer swimming experience, the beaches of the river mouth at the north end of town are an ideal paddling area for your littlies. It's a great place to chase the crabs or dig for pipis (shell fish) - all essential parts of a true kiwiana beach holiday experience.
