Can you swim at West Bay?
Yes, you can swim at West Bay – West Bay is a fantastic destination for a family day out at the beach.
If you plan on taking a dip we highly recommend heading to East Beach (east of the harbour). This beach is manned by RNLI Lifeguards during the peak season.
Always swim between the red and yellow flags. This is the area of the beach that the lifeguard deem safe for swimming. The knowledgable team re evaluate this throughout the day and may change the position based on the current weather conditions and sea state.
If you decide to swim at West Bay’s other beaches always consult the weather and proceed with caution. Remember the motto – if in doubt, don’t go out!
