Make sure when you visit the beach you are sun safe and take adequate precautions. Always wear sunscreen SPF 30+ or higher, a hat and a shirt. It is also wise to avoid long periods of direct exposure to the sun during the hottest hours of the day.

- Slip on clothing that covers your arms and legs
- Slop on 30+, broad-spectrum sunscreen
