Safety around Walking Path

The most serious safety issue for rocky shore explorers is the threat to life caused by the “freak wave”. It usually surges across the rocky shore, ambushing the unwary. 

An unsuspecting person can easily be washed off a rock into deep water. You can easily drown, or be swept against barnacle-encrusted rocks.


• No matter how safe a rocky shore may seem, never walk on wet rocks or near the edge

• Always keep a lookout for infrequent large waves.

• If you get swept in swim away from the rocks, never try and get out.

• Never go in the water to try and help, call 000 and reassure and reaffirm to the victim, stay calm and swim out to sea.

Our Clubrooms are now Officially open

We are entering new era with our new Club Rooms ready for Life Saving Patrols. After more than a decade in the making, the biggest Surf Life Saving Club re-development in the state is complete. Boasting a new patrol and first aid area, training and change rooms, as well as a jet-ski storage area, the complete rebuild provides volunteer patrolling members state-of-the-art facilities that will sustain vital lifesaving services well into the future. Fundraising efforts by the club, as well as significant contributions from The State Government, Surf Life Saving SA and the Alexandrina Council supported the project. The Clubrooms will be opened in stages, with priority being given to getting lifesaving operations up and running, and having members familiarising themselves with the building and its technologies. Our upstairs Bar is now open and we can’t wait to welcome South Australians to have a drink and enjoy magnificent views of Horseshoe Bay.
