Be safe on the beach people. Simple as.
Nothing ruins a good holiday like a scary sea experience so know your flags.
Flags aren’t just decorative items erected to make our beaches look a bit more cheerful. They serve a vital purpose; to inform beach goers of what’s what.
Red & Yellow – Our favourite flag is the red and yellow stripe one – it means it’s safe to swim and it is a life guarded area. So get swimming and know if you get in a spot of bother someone akin to The Hoff or Pammy will run to your rescue. Don’t worry – Cornish Lifeguards run and swim in real time, they aren’t into bounce-enhancing slow motion.
Red Flag – The red flag is our least favourite. It means never ever ever never EVER go in the water when it’s flying. It could be for a number of reasons including rip tides, currents, monsters, jellyfish or dinosaurs.
So now you know that you should be ok! Just beware of deep holes in the sand, wear sunscreen and make sure you pop into the Bowgie Inn Crantock for a drink or bite to eat and your beach visit will definitely be one to remember for all the right reasons.
