To ensure you and your family don't put yourselves in danger, the lifesaving charity, The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) have offered some essential beach safety tips.
Those who can’t make it to a lifeguarded beach can take some basic steps to help keep themselves safe:
Red and yellow flags indicate the area patrolled by lifeguards. These are the safe areas to swim, bodyboard and use inflatables.
Black and white chequered flags indicate an area zoned by lifeguards for use of watercraft such as surfboards and kayaks. Never swim or bodyboard in these areas.
The red flag indicates danger. NEVER enter the water when the red flag is flying, under any circumstances.
The orange windsock indicates offshore wind conditions. You should NEVER use an inflatable when the sock is flying.
