What happened to Mullins Beach?

Hello all,

I've been watching the web cam at Mullins beach and it appears the tide has come really high and taken over the whole beach. Does this usually happen during the full moon? Will it recede before I arrive on Jan 3rd? I hope so...

Actually I just looked at the webcam and the beach is the best I've ever seen it. There isn't the usual drop off near shore, although the waves still seem higher than usual.

Any word on when this north swell will relax? Was really hoping to lounge on a chair with a cocktail in my hand.

We spent some time at Accra/Rockley Beach Yesterday and it was lovely.. Not flat water, but not as rough as I've ever seen it. Great day for a swim. (even with the intermittent light showers

Looks like the surf has subsided a bit. Tide still a bit high, but I'll take it!

spent the midday to afternoon at Folkstone Marine park.. watched the waves get progressively bigger.. (not loads, but some).. advised that another north swell coming in.

then drove north to the kings beach area.. passed Mullins and was stunned.. hardly any beach and what was there, looked a bit rocky. possibly high tide, but still..
