Beach ordinances vary according to beach municipality and are posted at public beach accesses. Obey these guidelines for your safety and enjoyment and for that of others around you.
Certain ordinances and regulations do apply to all locations and should be followed. The swim safe program also offers a number of safety tips for swimmers to remember before getting into the water.
In addition to these guidelines, a voluntary beach water monitoring program is underway with the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control. During the summer months, the surf is regularly tested.
