BLUE FLAG SEASON COMES TO AN END FOR 4 OF OVERSTRAND’S 5 BEACHES

The Blue Flag Season at the beaches of Castle Beach, Onrus, Hawston and Kleinmond came to an end last week (22 January 2023). 

Grotto’s Blue Flag status will remain effective till 31 March 2023.  Lifeguards will be on duty from 09:00 until 18:00 every day for the duration of the Blue Flag season.

People with disabilities can make use of the beach wheelchair that is available for use at Grotto, while lifeguards are there. This amphibious wheelchair has a sturdy aluminium frame and can carry a weight of up to 150 kg.

The chair is equipped with three wheels that are wider than a traditional wheelchair to enable easy movement on the sand. It also has two flotation devices that act as armrests and when pushed into the water, the chair becomes safely buoyant.

There will be lifeguards on duty over weekends only, on most other swimming beaches in Hermanus until mid-April 2023.

Enjoy the sun and beach safely.

The Sea Rescue Emergency (NSRI) number is 112 or 082 990 5967 (NSRI Hermanus) or 063 699 2765 (NSRI Kleinmond). Overstrand Municipality's 24-hour Fire and Rescue Emergencies number is 028 312 2400.
