City’s Beaches Closed for Public After Heavy Rains

City’s Beaches Closed for Public After Heavy Rains
In the interest of safety for residents and tourists, Northern and Southern beaches have been closed following heavy down pours in the past two days, resulting to murky sea waters. Central beaches have not been affected and remain open.
Swimming is as a result prohibited at the aforementioned beaches as the risk of shark attack might increase. Beach goers are therefore urged to heed this warning unwaveringly.
Residents can still enjoy other activities along the beach such as jogging on the sand, walking, running, yoga and other healthy lifestyle exercises. Lifeguards are on site to monitor and ensure there are no drownings on the beaches that are open. Law enforcement are doing regular patrols to enforce that this warning is not disregarded. The Municipality will notify residents when these are safe to bathe.
EThekwini would like to caution the public that the country is still under level 1 lockdown and people are advised to permanently adhere to lockdown regulations.
