Be Safe in The Sun
While some exposure to sunlight is enjoyable, too much can be dangerous, causing immediate effects like blistering sunburns and longer-term problems like skin cancer and cataracts. Overexposure also causes wrinkling and aging of the skin, and scientists are concerned that UV may even impair the human immune system. More

At beaches where lifeguards are on duty you'll find information on water conditions and temperatures.
Be sure to pay attention to the flags flying and their color:
