Beach Warning Flag System
Watch for the Color of the Flag:

Two red flags = Water Closed to Public

Red = danger lurks and that could mean high surf and/or strong rip currents.

Yellow = it could be worse, but you should watch out for moderate surf and/or currents.

Green = get in there! Green means go and enjoy the calm conditions, but still be mindful and exercise caution.

Purple = our waters are teaming with vibrant sea life, but some of them are dangerous, so watch out!
