Taking a road trip up the coast? On holiday? Or just looking for the right beach for you? Find your nearest beaches in seconds.

    Brought to you by Surf Life Saving Australia, the Beachsafe app includes the location, weather, surf conditions and hazards plus the local facilities for all Australian beaches. Importantly, the current lifesaving service for each beach is listed to help you find the nearest patrolled beach. Beachsafe also provides expert advice about rip currents, flags and signs, waves, marine creatures, surf skills and more.

    SLSA recommends swimming at patrolled beaches, between the red and yellow flags.

    Buggy and unstable. Suddenly stops working, cannot tap on beach info. Random crashes at launch.

    Very buggy. Tapping on beaches I've followed does nothing. And when I can finally get it to open a beach, the app crashes

    Great info, needs a couple of fixes. Sliding up and down the screen is buggy.

    Great concept but app contains way too many bugs. Not able to view the beaches that I wanted to visit anymore :(
