Swimming Safety

After replenishment beaches are typically very steep near the water's edge. Often the result is a beach where is seems like it is high tide all the time with deep water very close to shore. This can be especially dangerous for children and the elderly entering and exiting the water. It can be even worse if there are no shoals or sandbars to break up wave energy. All this wave-energy will crash directly on to shore.
