Lifeguards make the call to close beach

DANGEROUS swell has forced lifeguards to close down one of the Mid North Coast's popular surf beaches.

Coffs Harbour Lifeguards made the call today to close Park Beach due to large swell and strong rip currents with the hope to reopen when the tide drops.

Surf has reached over six foot on the Coffs Coast, coming from a SSE direction.

Swell is expected to peak tonight before dropping over the next couple of days.

Park Beach was also closed on Saturday due to a great white sighting.
