St Helena is currently experiencing a significant south south-westerly swell that is forecast to last throughout this week, running into the weekend.

The public is asked to use caution when accessing the Sea Front area. To avoid damage to vehicles, drivers are also asked to take care when parking near the safety rails.

The same conditions are expected in Rupert’s Bay and the public is advised to take care in the Beach, Shears and Wharf areas.

Port Control will be monitoring sea conditions and may restrict access to the Sea Front and Jamestown Wharf if conditions worsen.
