Beach Safety

Rissers Beach is a very safe beach. The location of the beach is in a bay and is sheltered. The surf does not usually exceed 1 metre and there are no drop-offs. The hazards of the beach include the shallow surf which patrons like to dive in and the ramp leading to the beach that children run down. The lifeguards enforce a "No Running" rule on the ramp and a "No Diving" rule in shallow waterto prevent injuries. The supervised swimming area is marked by red and yellow flags on the beach and two orange buoys in the water located approximately 200m apart. Rissers Beach usually experiences moderate water temperatures and moderate surf conditions. All dogs must be on leashes while at the beach. Floatation devices are not permitted on days when there is an offshore wind. Hard shell boats are not permitted to launch, land or travel in the supervised area, they must remain 200m outside the supervised area.


Rissers Beach is located on the South Shore approximately 25 kilometres south of Bridgewater on highway 331. It is located on the Atlantic Coast in Green Bay at the mouth of the Petite Riviere.
