They are managed by Brighton and Hove City Council's Seafront Team which trains them ahead of the summer season.

People are advised to swim between red and yellow flags as this means it is safe to swim and the area is monitored by a lifeguard.

Red flags are put up when the water is too dangerous for swimming.  

The lifeguard service is funded by Brighton council’s seafront budget. It will cost £482,193 for the 2024 summer season.
