Based on Auckland's rugged West Coast Bethells Beach is well worth a visit for both locals and tourists, offering an unspoilt West Coast landscape. During the summer months Bethells Beach Surf Life Saving Patrol provides life guarding services to protect the public visiting Bethells Beach. Volunteer lifeguards are rostered on every weekend and public holiday between October and April with paid Regional Guards filling in the week days during the peak Christmas period. We have an active Junior Surf program as well as adult surf sports and welcome new members.
