Ensuring safety at the beach and in the sea is crucial for a fun and worry-free holiday in Pembrokeshire. Whether you’re swimming, sunbathing, or engaging in water sports, following these guidelines will help keep you and your loved ones safe:

  1. Swim in designated areas: Always choose areas supervised by lifeguards and adhere to their instructions. These zones are typically safer and free from potential hazards.
  2. Check water conditions: Before entering the sea, check the local weather and water conditions. Avoid swimming in rough waters, high waves, or strong currents. Rip currents can be dangerous, so learn to recognise their signs.
  3. Swim with a buddy: Never swim alone. Having someone with you increases safety and provides immediate help in case of an emergency.
  4. Be aware of marine life: Watch out for jellyfish, sea urchins, and other potentially harmful creatures. Avoid touching them and seek medical attention if stung or bitten.
  5. Follow water sports safety guidelines: If you’re surfing, paddleboarding, or kayaking, use appropriate safety equipment and follow all safety guidelines.
  6. Know your limits: Understand your swimming abilities and avoid venturing too far from shore. Strong currents can quickly tire you out.
  7. Supervise children closely: Always keep a close eye on children near the water. They should always be accompanied by an adult.
  8. Be prepared for emergencies: Know the location of the nearest lifeguard station and familiarise yourself with the beach’s emergency procedures. Carry a charged phone to call for help if needed.
  9. Respect warning signs: Pay attention to beach warning signs, including flags that indicate water conditions and potential dangers.
  10. Learn to swim: If you’re not a strong swimmer, consider taking swimming lessons before heading into the sea. This will improve your skills and confidence in the water.
  11. Stay hydrated: The sun and sea can quickly lead to dehydration. Bring plenty of water and drink regularly to stay hydrated.
  12. Use sunscreen: Apply waterproof sunscreen with a high SPF before going out in the sun, and reapply it every few hours, especially after swimming.

The sea can be unpredictable, so it’s essential to stay vigilant and prioritise safety during your beach and water activities. Enjoy your time responsibly and take the necessary precautions to protect yourself and others.
