Omanu Beach is a beautiful white sandy beach backed by a common sand dune reserve. Behind the beach as a whole is a very well established residential area.
The local community in Omanu combined with other beach goers makes this beach very active during the hot summer months. While at Omanu beach, swimmers are safe during low wave energy days but large holes and rips will be present in swells over a metre. During this time, the beach conditions will also change a great deal between high and low tide.
Swimmers are always advised to stay within the patrolled area and any beach users that are in doubt should not hesitate and ask a Lifeguard. Omanu Beach has life guards patrolling and watching over weekends during the summer. Professional Lifeguards are here for six weeks during primary school holidays.
