Nestled on Auckland's rugged West Coast Bethells Beach is well worth a visit for both locals and tourists, offering an unspoilt West Coast landscape.


Bethells Beach Surf Life Saving Patrol has been providing life guarding services to beach goers for over 60 years.  Our volunteer lifeguards are rostered on every weekend and public holiday, between October and April, with paid lifeguards filling in the week days during the peak summer period.

Junior Surf

We have an active Junior Surf (Nippers) programme, with our Junior Surf members hitting the beach every Sunday morning working on developing the essential surf safety skills to help them on their journey to becoming our future lifeguards.

Surf Sports

We have teams participating in Surf Boat, IRB and Canoe competitions as well as individual competitors competing across all disciplines at both Senior and Junior levels.

New members

Volunteers are needed and welcomed across all aspects of the club.  From Lifeguarding to Patrol Support to manning the BBQ for the Junior Surf sausage sizzle - any help you can offer is always appreciated.
