Beach Check app

Our Beach Check app, has a traffic light system helping both visitors and residents avoid busy hotspots.

The app is free to download and available from:

App data is supplied by a mix of sources. At the start of the day, a prediction is set for each zone, based on previous data, factoring in the date and weather to show how busy we forecast each zone will be. From mid-morning, our Seafront Ranger team will be updating each section on a regular basis to reflect any changes in congestion observed. This is supplemented by CCTV and some footfall counters. 

In addition to showing how busy each beach area is, the app provides handy information on the beach lifeguard status, whether toilets are open and information on byelaws for cycling along the promenade and exercising your dog.
