Sunshine Coast beaches are beautiful and can be unpredictable. You can view patrol times (lifeguard hours) and locations at the Beachsafe website. Patrolled times will vary depending on each season and beach. Lifeguard services are provided by Surf Life Saving Queensland and proudly funded by Sunshine Coast Council.

For your own safety:

It is important to know how to protect yourself in the water and understand the warning signs and flags, to ensure you remember your trip to the beach for all the right reasons.
