If you're planning on a trip to Mablethorpe during the summer months then there are a few other safety tips to consider during your visit to the beach, to ensure you don't miss out on any of your holiday days through illness.
Keeping hydrated- Drinking regular non alcoholic drinks will keep you in good shape for a day in the sun, any drinks that include electrolytes are very good for water absorption. Try to drink at least 3 litres of water on very hot days.
Wear sunscreen- Mablethorpe can be quite deceiving when there is a breeze coming off of the sea, and the burn time can be very fast. Wear a high sunscreen factor and build yourself up slowly to the sun if you are wanting to get a tan, have regular breaks in shaded areas to give yourself a rest from the sun. Buying a hat can be a great help to keep the sun away from your head. If you do get over exposed to the sun then drink plenty of water and apply a cooling after sun cream where needed, creams including aloe vera and very good for sunburn. If you or one of your party continue to feel ill, then seek medical advice immediately.
Buy some quality sunglasses - Looking after our eyes is extremely important to our health, by all means make sure you are looking good in your shades, but if the sunglasses you are buying don't protect you 100% from UVA and UVB rays then put them back on the shelf and find a pair that does. Quality sunglasses don't have to be expensive and there are plenty of shops on the High Street and the central promenade that sell them. All glasses will have a sticker or label on them telling you what they protect you from.
Always obey the beach rules - As we previously mentioned, always obey the rules of the beach, this can literally be the difference between life and death. The sea must be treated with the upmost respect, and keeping to the rules will keep your family and loved ones safe at all times.
Remember to pick up your litter - Nobody likes a litter lout, and if you get caught throwing your rubbish or cigarette butts on to the floor, or Mablethorpe Beach by the enforcement officer, then you will be facing a fine of around £80. Keep our magnificent beach clean and leave it how you would like to find it the next time you visit.
