National Beach Day

August 30 is National Beach Day. It’s about more than having fun though. We also need to focus on safety and preserving our beaches.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalBeachDay

Tybee Island Beach

A few safety tips include”

  1. Only swim in designated areas.
  2. Never swim alone.
  3. Whether you’re in the ocean, a lake or a river, watch the currents.
  4. Don’t swim longer than you’re capable.
  5. Learn CPR

Learn how to survive a riptide. Don’t swim against the current. Relax. Swim parrallel to the shore until you leave the riptide.

You can also organize a group to clean a section of your favorite beach. If you don’t have time for that, you can pick some trash up on your own.

I hope you are able to enjoy your favorite beach soon.

  1. That is so interesting about the riptide. I never knew you could swim parallel to the shore and be able to eventually leave the riptide. Very cool.
