Lifeguarded Facilities

Over the last 15 years, lifeguards have rescued over 745 people from Charleston County beaches alone, according to statistics provided by the United States Lifesaving Association. Statistics such as these prove that swimming in an area supervised by lifeguards is an integral part of ensuring your safety and the safety of your child.

Many Charleston County area public pools, waterparks, and beaches are guarded by American Red Cross-certified lifeguards. Use the links below to discover more about these locations. Swim Safe, Lowcountry!
