Beach safety brochure produced for Pearl Beach

A beach safety brochure is being distributed at Pearl Beach to educate visitors and residents about the dangers of the beach.

A number of community education safety sessions were also being held.

Ocean Beach surf lifesaver Ms Louise Lambeth is author of the children's surf safety book, Annie and the Waves, has been involved in producing the leaflets and running the education sessions.

She said the beach had been classified as a black spot, following recent drownings and because of its sudden drop off into deep water and surging and plunging waves with a strong backwash, and lacking a beach patrol.

"Pearl Beach Cafe and Pearl Beach Patonga Real Estate are stocking these brochures plus my drowning prevention children's books and are making sure residents and visitors will be able to access these brochures."

Surf Life Saving Central Coast was creating a series of brochures with input from local clubs, she said.

She said the Pearl Beach Progress Association and council lifeguards were joining her in presenting "ongoing community education sessions".

Ocean Beach and Umina Surf Life Saving Clubs were first responders for Pearl Beach, she said.
