Beach Safety, Maroochydore Beach

Hooray for summer on the way!  The days are already warm and beach worthy.  It’s the perfect time to get yourself and your friends or family to Maroochydore, for a well-earned holiday.

Maroochydore beach is patrolled by the Maroochydore S.L.S.C,  which is one of the oldest Surf Life Saving Clubs in Queensland, founded on New Years Day almost 100 years ago! Back in 1916.
Offering a large car park next to the club, it’s located at the end of the main.

This is a well established, and popular beach offering all facilities for visitors, plus the added safety of two surf lifesaving clubs.

It’s considered that the best surfing spot is the break off Alexandra Headland. In a moderate to high swell it can provide some good right-handers. You’ll also find that there are beach breaks all the way up to the mouth of the river.

Generally waves are 1 m or less, but care needs be taken when swimming on these beaches due to the common presence of rips and the rocks on the headland beach. The northern end of Maroochydore Beach also contains deep tidal channels and shifting bars which can be particularly hazardous. There is also a strong permanent rip against the rocks at the southern end of Alexandra Headland Beach.
Stick to the patrolled beaches and swim between the flags.

If fishing is more your thing, the river mouth and the headland are the most popular locations, together with beach fishing into the rip holes, when present.

We all love this time of year and the opportunity to get down the beach, but don’t forget to be beach smart when visiting the ocean.  Below we take a look at some of the top tips from Surf Life Saving on keeping safe at the beach.

DON’T:

Do Not Swim alone or surf at beaches not patrolled by Lifeguards or Lifesavers

Do Not Swim outside the red and yellow flags that mark safe swimming areas

Do Not Swim directly after a meal or under the influence of alcohol

Do Not Swim when the beach is closed. (Observe the sign "Danger- Reserve closed to bathing" and the red flag)

Do Not Swim when there are no safety flags

Do Not Panic if caught in a current or undertow, but raise one arm straight up and float until help arrives

Do Not Struggle if you have a cramp, but raise one arm for help, float and keep the affected part of the body still

Do Not Go out far when a yellow flag is flying- it means the surf is dangerous

Do Not Swim if unsure of safe conditions, but seek advice of the nearest Lifeguard

Do Not Struggle against a rip or current, but swim diagonally across it.

DO:

Do Swim between the red & yellow flag on patrolled beaches

Do Read the Flags and Safety Signs and understand what they mean before entering the water.
