Titahi Beach is a popular location and there is a solid residential base that provides many of the beaches users. It is very common to have large numbers of people swimming during the summer months and there are good numbers of surfers in the water whenever there is a wave breaking. The beach although not commonly having powerful waves or strong rips is still dangerous for inexperienced beach users and patrons should remain in the patrolled area and seek advice from the Lifeguards in doubt.
