The South West is blessed with beautiful beaches and clean seas.

BeachLive is South West Water's  free, voluntary online advisory service on bathing water quality and the performance of the waste water network.  Bathing water quality can also be affected by agricultural run-off, algae, animal waste, misconnections and urban drainage.

Following the end of the 2017 bathing water season, BeachLive is being extended to cover the following 15 beaches every day up to and including Sunday 29 October to coincide with beaches being staffed by the RNLI during that time:

  • Bude (Summerleaze)
  • Crantock
  • Croyde Bay (Braunton)
  • Fistral
  • Mawgan Porth
  • Perranporth Village End
  • Polzeath
  • Porthmeor
  • Porthtowan
  • Praa Sands (East and West)
  • The Towans (Godrevy)
  • Towan (Newquay)
  • Trevaunance Cove (St Agnes)
  • Widemouth Sands
  • Woolacombe Village

The service will then undergo planned maintenance and further development before being switched on again in time for the 2018 bathing water season.

During or after heavy rainfall, the general rule at popular swimming spots is to think twice before entering the sea.
