Tides and the dangers
A beach can seem like a vast playground but the tide can come in surprisingly quickly. As the tide moves up and down the beach, the depth of the water changes throughout the day, sometimes by as much as 10 metres.
Always keep a look out of the tide's direction while on the beach.
Tidal data is provided by Magic Seaweed (third party software). Please be aware that in some cases, the tide information will be for a nearby location and may not be accurate for the lifeboat station.
We are looking at ways to increase the coverage and accuracy of our reports. No matter where you are, always keep a look out for the tide’s direction while on the beach.
