Beaches

Mossel Bay. Do beach stuff

No less than sixty kilometres of long, sandy beaches – and beach-going weather throughout the year.

There’s plenty of beach stuff to do in Mossel Bay – stuff like swimming, surfing, fishing, and walking. But doing nothing at all? That’s what everyone likes best at the beach. Especially on beaches like ours.

Ocean Awareness 101

How do I avoid getting stuck in a current?

  • Never go swimming alone and always watch your friend. Use the buddy system
  • Always keep an eye on a fixed point or marker on the beach
  • Always make sure your feet can touch the ground
  • Never swim in rough water
  • Always swim between the lifesaver's red-and-yellow flags

What do I do if I DO get stuck in a current?

  • Do not panic and stay calm
  • Never swim against or directly into the current
  • If you have a surfboard or body board wit you, stay on it. It will keep you a float.
  • Use one arm to keep you afloat and hold the other one up to signal for help. Stay calm
  • Let the current take you out to sea and then assess how you can get back to shore (rip currents work in circular patterns)

How do I recognise a current:

  • Current strength is determined by the tide and wind, which in turn affect the size of the waves
  • Currents are usually discolored, sandy brown
  • Currents ripples the surface of the sea
  • Currents usually start in deep water where there is little wave activity.

5 Golden Rules of swimming at the beach:

  • Never swim alone
  • Always keep an eye on a fixed marker on the beach
  • Stay waist- to chest-deep, and keep your feet on the ground
  • Swim between the flags wherever life savers are on duty
  • After a you eat, wait at least 30 minutes before you swim

And finally:

  • Always respect Mother Nature, the sea.
  • Keep the beach clean and tidy.
  • Always tell your parents or care takers that you are going to the beach.
  • Be responsible on the beach, do not drink alcohol or eat before entering the water.
  • It's very important that you share this knowledge and information with your parents, friends, brothers and sisters.
  • If you can abide by these simple rules you will be able to enjoy swimming in the sea and still be safe.
