Play it safe when visiting our beaches


The City of Corpus Christi uses a flag warning system for beach visitors to observe and follow recommendations developed and implemented for their safety. 

GREEN FLAG:

Indicates conditions are calm and swim with care.

YELLOW FLAG:

Indicates caution should be used when entering any body of water. This flag is flown for normal conditions to remind swimmers to stay alert.

RED FLAG:

BLUE FLAG:

Indicates a potential problem with jellyfish, Man-O-War, stingrays, or other marine life that could be a hazard for swimmers.

ORANGE FLAG:

Environmental hazard air/water. Bacteria count is very high after extreme high tides, Red Tide may be present, air/water quality may be poor.
