Coastal Monitoring Systems such as those installed along the Basque coast offer services and tools for those in charge of the management and safety of activities carried out along the coast. For example: video-monitoring systems facilitate up-to-date images of currents in beaches and contribute to signalling improvement in hazardous áreas.

Furthermore, information related to current and future sea conditions contributes to improving the safety of activities such as underwater diving/scuba-diving, sport fishing, recreational sailing and organisation of events subject to incoming and outgoing tide times and levels such as beach football competitions several months in advance.
