A beach vacation or outing can be a great memory to last a lifetime. Having fun in the sun and surf is the perfect way to mix relaxation and excitement. However there are some tips that everyone should consider to keep their family safe. A simple day out or vacation can go terribly wrong otherwise.
There may only be one sun, but it has a different effect wherever you go. Which is why a sunscreen of spf 40 or higher is recommended for all family members and should be reapplied often.
Stay Near Lifeguards
A riptide or undercurrent can catch anyone off guard. Be aware of the current conditions of the water, and stay near a lifeguard. Also remind kids to not swim too far out on their own.
It can be easy for kids to become lost at the beach because of all the similar umbrellas and people all around. Make sure your umbrella is marked with something special so you can be found easier.
Always be sure to bring plenty of water for each family member. So much time in the sun can cause dehydration.
