Opening Times

With BST almost upon us, the lookout will be open from 0900 – 1800 from Sunday 28 March and 0830 – 1830 from Thursday 1 April. Our RNLI Lifeguard colleagues will also be on the beach from 2 April (Good Friday).

Air Sanitiser

Exmouth NCI today took a socially distanced delivery of an Atmos-Clear Mini air sanitising system, which destroys 99.9% of all viruses (including coronavirus), and will be installed in our lookout to provide added health and safety benefits for all our volunteer watchkeepers whilst on duty. Phil McGuinness from Atmos personally delivered the new machine to our watchkeeper Zan Nye.

Incident – Yacht Aground

Watchkeeper requested by HMCG to maintain observation of yacht aground at low tide. No concerns for crew. Yacht waiting on rising tide to refloat.

Cold Water Swimmers
