Weather and tide tables
It's always good to know the forecast to help you plan your visit to the coast, our favourite weather website is XC Weather, which includes detailed wind maps.
If you want to visit an intertidal site on the foreshore, it's vital to know when high and low tides will be. The BBC tide tables have times and heights of tides for the coming week. If you want to plan further in advance, we recommend the QuickTide tide tables, which have tidal predictions for two years and highlight Spring tides.
