Though the beach is a great place to go to have fun in the sun there are some dangers lurking at the beach that should always be recognized in order avoid them.
The first danger at the beach is the danger of a sun burn. When at the beach in the summer the body is mainly uncovered by clothes and is exposed to the harsh summer sun. Exposing the skin to the sun exposes it to harsh UV rays that can burn the skin and cause future damage including skin cancers. The best way to avoid getting a sun burn at the beach is to cover up with a high SPF and keep applying periodically throughout the day.
Another danger of the beach is swimming out too deep in unsafe waters. In certain locations there are rip tides and currents that could easily pull a swimming person away from the shore without them really noticing. By the time they try to swim back it can be too late as they are caught in a very strong ocean current. Listening to life guards and staying close to the shore is the best way to prevent getting caught in an under toe.
