Which Auckland Beaches are safe to swim at?
Before you head our to the beach with your family, you can check to see if it is safe to swim on Auckland Council’s Safeswim website.
The website is updated for live information on water quality and swimming conditions and is easy to use.
You type the name of the beach that you want to visit into the search area. For example we have entered Mission Bay Beach. The website shows whether or not it is safe to swim at this beach. As shown in the image below, the results at the time we did the search was that Mission Bay Beach had a low risk of illness from swimming and there were no safety alerts.
You can also use the website to plan your visits in advance, as it shows you the 3 day forecast for the water quality at your chosen beach as well.
Safeswim’s website is free to use, and you can find it at: www.safeswim.org.nz
