Blue Flag lowered today due to debris on Wilderness Beach

Issued George Mun, Friday 3 December 2021

The public is advised that the Blue Flag will be lowered today at Wilderness Beach, Salinas due to the continuous amount of debris that is present in the water and washing up onto the beach. This follows from the flash flooding that took place in George on Monday 22nd November. Extreme efforts have gone into clearing the beaches on a daily basis, but it must be noted that the tides, and more expected rainfall this weekend could dislodge more debris in the form of tree branches etc.

Lifesavers are on the beach at Wilderness, Salinas and the beach is open but swimming is not recommended due to safety concerns. Leentjiesklip, Victoria Bay, Herold’s Bay and Gwaing Beach are also being cleared of debris and swimming is not advised until further notice.
