Public Notice: No Alcohol at beaches

George Municipality strictly enforces NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED on our beaches and especially over the Festive Season. The George law enforcement officers will be assisted by 30 Beach Monitors during the Festive Season to assist with beach patrols and bag checks. All Beach Monitors will be identifiable, whether by reflector jackets or reflector bands and carry identification cards.

The municipality encourages all beachgoers to assist our officials in ensuring that their day at the beach is a safe and pleasant experience. Neighbourhood Watches, Community Police Forums, George Traffic Services, Provincial Traffic Services as well as the South African Police Service (SAPS) also work closely with the Municipality regarding Community Safety.

Any type of liquor is strictly prohibited on all beach areas under the control of the George Municipality which include Herold’s Bay, Gwaiing River Mouth Beach and Day Camp, Victoria Bay, Wilderness, and Leentjiesklip areas. If Law Enforcement confiscates liquor from beachgoers, a notice of confiscation will be issued to the offender. All confiscated items or goods are handed over to SAPS, for disposal at their discretion.

For any further information or complaints please contact the Law Enforcement office on 044 801 6350 (7.45am-4.30pm) or 044 801 6300 (a/h)(standby team for bylaw-related emergencies only).

The public can also email with complaints or related matters.

The physical address of the Law Enforcement Office is 25B Cathedral Street.
