Our Guide on Enjoying the Perfect Beach Trip

Tranquil waters, clear skies, and warm, billowy sand—who doesn’t love a beach getaway? Whether you’re traveling with family or taking a road trip with friends, going to the beach is always a good idea. It’s the perfect way to relax, unwind, and have fun!

Between sipping margaritas by the pool and sunbathing by the shore, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of activities. An accident or an injury can be quite the bummer. That’s why it’s essential to think about safety when going on any trip. Here are simple tips on how to avoid danger so you can have the best beach day:


1. Identify lifeguards and stay close
When you arrive at the resort, quickly scan the area and identify the lifeguards. If you don’t see any, don’t hesitate to ask the staff. Lifeguards are there to keep watch over the guests while they’re swimming. Approach them to have a friendly chat about the weather and water conditions. If you’re traveling with little children, it’s best to set up your picnic on the beach next to a lifeguard tower. Doing this will ensure your kids’ safety and reduce your stress and worry.


2. Bring along a beach buddy
There’s always safety in numbers. This saying is true whether you’re in the city or at the beach. When taking a dip into the ocean, don’t go too far if you’re swimming solo. Stay within your group and use a buddy system. In the event of an emergency, it’s always best to have someone with you who can call for help and perform first aid.


3. Know what warning flags mean
Many beach resorts use different indicators as warning signs for lifeguards and their staff. You can see these planted in the shoreline or at the lifeguard tower. It pays to know what they mean so you can quickly identify dangerous situations. Here are the flag colors you should know by heart:
Green: Ocean is safe and calm. Go ahead, enjoy your swim!
Yellow: Stay alert. There may be moderate waves and ocean currents.
Red: Danger. There are strong waves and ocean currents. It’s best to swim another day.
Purple: While not commonly used, purple flags indicate potentially dangerous marine life. You’ll probably see this sign during jellyfish season.


4. Prevent sun damage
Anyone who has experienced sunburn knows it’s the worst way to end your beach trip. The best way to prevent this is by applying sunblock with the right amount of SPF. Skin experts recommend those with at least 30 SPF. Be sure that your sunscreen is water-resistant and re-apply it every hour or so.


5. Drink lots of water
Dehydration is another frequently ignored risk when you’re having a swell time at the beach. Our bodies lose essential salts and water on a scorching day and while doing strenuous activities like swimming. Dehydration can lead to headaches, cramps, and other physical ailments. Avoid this by drinking plenty of fluids. Make sure you have a water canteen whenever you’re lounging by the beach. Better yet, bring a cooler with lots of fruit and sports drinks.

When at the beach, it’s nice to forget our worries and focus on the fun. However, being carefree is different from being careless. Mind these safety tips so you can get the most out of your beach holiday!
