You don’t have to set foot on the beach to find out whether the surf's up, how many people are having a dip, or even if the sun's shining! Check out our live beach cameras before you grab the beach towels or strap on the boards.
Note: the images below are examples of a view from each camera. Click on the relevant image to view live updates.
Visit our Media Centre for beach closure alerts.
Coastalwatch surfcams also display footage of our beaches:
Please note: these cameras should not serve as a safety tool. Safety information should be obtained through official water safety and weather forecasting services.
