We want visitors to enjoy their stay and it's important to stay safe. Here are some tips and advice on how to stay safe in the city.
Red and yellow flags are raised on patrolled beaches and represent safe swimming conditions
Red flags mean that it is unsafe to swim in the sea.
We strongly recommend you do not swim in the sea outside of the lifeguard service or in the winter months. The sea temperature is extremely low and the onset of hypothermia can take a matter of minutes.
Pier & Groyne jumping is extremely dangerous. You should never jump off any structure directly into the sea as you can never be sure how deep the water is below.
You can find more details via The Seafront Office
