TEIGNMOUTH BEACH LIFE SAVING CLUB WAS FORMED IN 1985 following a tragic drowning. Since this date, it has trained people from the age of 5 in beach safety and surf rescue.
The club has provided voluntary lifeguard services on the beach and at major events for many years and its members can be credited with saving many lives.
We currently have 300 members who are heavily involved in teaching water safety, beach lifesaving and surf lifesaving competitions.
Our clubhouse is situated at Eastcliff, under Teign Corinthian Yacht Club.
Teignmouth boasts a long beach that stretches from the mouth of the River Teign down towards Holcombe.
It is popular and a safe beach that is enjoyed by walkers, people enjoying the beach and water sports varying from motor boats to sailboats, kayaking and of course swimming.
At the south end of the beach, we have The Point. This is the mouth of the River Teign and although appealing due to the apparent closeness of The Ness at Shaldon and the sand bars, the tide is most dangerous here and not the place for swimming.
During the summer season, the beach is patrolled by Beach Lifeguards, who predominately run two bathing areas; one to the south of Teignmouth Pier and one to the north.
