The twice monthly Spring Tide is here. Spring Tide will peak on Thursday (2 July) during the Full Moon phase.
Spring Tide brings a higher than normal high tide, a lower than normal low tide and stronger than normal rip currents.
Strong rip currents are experienced along the coast for a few days leading up to the full or the new moon, peaking on the day of the full or the new moon, and lasting for a few days afterwards, every month of the year.
Anyone going down to the beach during the Winter holidays between now and Monday the 6th of July are advised to be aware of the strong rip currents that are a result of the spring tide that will peak on Thursday the 2nd of July and will last for the next 6 to 8 days.
Extreme caution is advised around the coast during this time.
