My Beach, Your Beach

Since 2018, My Beach Your Beach has been helping people care for our beaches and bathing waters.

With another busy summer ahead, make sure you know how you and your community can help care for the sand and sea.

This year's beaches

My Beach Your Beach is aimed at popular designated beaches that face challenges with bathing water quality. Each one has its own character, history and environment. Find out more about them by clicking on the boxes below:


Enjoy the beach...and care for sand, sea and the local community

Here's some key things that everyone can do to ensure that our beaches and bathing waters are clean for all to enjoy:

When visiting the beach...

Dog poo: bag it and bin it

If the bin is full, then take it away with you.

Bin your litter: or take it away with you

There is never an excuse for leaving litter for others to clean up.

Don't feed the gulls: leave them be

Attracting gulls to popular beaches by feeding them can result in them disrupting bins, ingesting litter and generally becoming a nuisance for beach goers, as well as harming the gulls themselves.

And for businesses and homes...

Never pour fats, oils or greases down the drain

Only flush the 3Ps: pee, poo and paper
