St James Beach<p>St James Beach is famous for its colourful collection of bathing boxes set alongside its tidal pool. The tidal pool, which backs onto a sandy beach, offers a safe swimming spot and is popular with families. The beach is relatively sheltered from the southeaster and is accessed via a subway beneath the railway line. Although this beach is considered safe for swimming, it is recommended that beach goers only swim where and when a lifeguard is on duty.</p><p>A walkway along the sea wall allows for pleasant seaside strolls. Local surfers can often be seen riding the reef break here, known as ‘Off the Wall in False Bay’.</p>GP0|#b0341be0-21cc-4396-b99d-5d2f2853ace6;L0|#0b0341be0-21cc-4396-b99d-5d2f2853ace6|Water sports;GTSet|#153637b8-411d-4bf7-8214-7237f5d775f0;GP0|#4f97464e-7b95-401b-a7de-5608e592ff97;L0|#04f97464e-7b95-401b-a7de-5608e592ff97|Safe swimming<p>​Please see the Recreation and Parks Tariffs Booklet in the document download section below for more information about booking a facility.</p><h4>​​General enquiries</h4><p> <em>Telephone:</em><br><em><a>021 782 8546</a></em></p><h4>District office</h4><p> <em>Telephone:</em><br><em><a>021 788 1929</a></em></p>GP0|#6fb82646-b411-48e6-b0d4-52898add42c8;L0|#06fb82646-b411-48e6-b0d4-52898add42c8|Parking;GTSet|#4be4596d-cdfe-41f7-a569-9d9c4e16c716;GP0|#5ae14e6f-bd9f-4386-99c8-08b378f44c98;L0|#05ae14e6f-bd9f-4386-99c8-08b378f44c98|Tidal pool;GP0|#b1b8ebb5-98fd-44d8-8d5f-fc9433daab5e;L0|#0b1b8ebb5-98fd-44d8-8d5f-fc9433daab5e|Toilets;GP0|#fa67d115-15f7-412f-8ebc-2ac414e6bff4;L0|#0fa67d115-15f7-412f-8ebc-2ac414e6bff4|Path and walkwaysMain Road, St James<img alt="" src="" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />
