SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Boating, Diving and Fishing:

We want you to be safe so please do all the right things – get a marine forecast, tell someone where you are going and when you’ll be back, watch the weather, check your motor, make sure your safety equipment is up to scratch and observe fishing regulations. Copies of the fishing regulations are available from sports shops in most towns.
Please… know and observe the daily catch limits and only take what you need.

 

Swimming:

Although all the beaches mentioned here are considered relatively ‘safe’, we urge you to remember standard safety precautions and always supervise children when they are swimming.

 

Jet Skis & Boats:

The speed limit within 200 metres off shore is a maximum of 8kmh (5mph). Outside 200m you must reduce speed when passing other boats. Please be mindful of swimmers, surfers, kayaks and dinghies.

 

Dog Restrictions:

No dogs are permitted on the beaches between the hours of 8am and 7pm daily from 15th December  to Easter, inclusive, and over Statutory holiday weekends.

Dogs must be on a lead at all times and you must take a plastic bag and pick up any droppings. There are dog rangers who will fine you for non-compliance.

 
PLEASE NOTE; If you are lucky enough to be allowed your dog at any of our houses, all signs of it must be removed on your departure,and cleared regularly during your stay. It is your responsibility to ensure the local dog bylaws are adhered to at all times.
