Cleethorpes Beach - Stay Safe in the sun

Cleethorpes Beach

Most of us enjoy being out and about in the hot weather during the summer, but most people don’t think of the risks that come with it.

With dangers including skin damage, heat stroke and heat exhaustion, it is important to take a few precautions to protect yourself and your family:

*      Use at least SPF15 sun cream (SPF30 for children)

*      Cover up with hats and sunglasses

*      Stay out of the sun between 11am and 3pm, when the sun is at its strongest (Cleethorpes has plenty of excellent indoor activities for both the young and the not-so-young)

*      Check skin and moles for any changes.

*      Drink plenty of water

*      Regularly check on elderly friends or relatives who are more at risk during hotter weather.

*      Never leave children unattended. As well as the risk of sunburn, there is the danger of drowning when close to any body of water – including paddling pools

Cleethorpes Beach - The Good Beach Guide

Produced by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) in conjunction with The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), the Good Beach Guide is the only independent, comprehensive guide to bathing water quality in the U.K.

The latest bathing water tests show just over half of the U.K. bathing beaches  have acquired the 'MCS Recommended' grade for excellent water quality.

With this in mind, Lincolnshire’s beaches have done incredibly well achieving a ‘clean sweep’ of ‘MCS Recommended’ grades for the second year running.

Cleethorpes Beach - Blue Flag Award

Blue Flag is a prestigious, international award scheme run by the non-governmental, non-profit organisation ‘Foundation for Environmental Education’ (FEE). It acts as a guarantee to tourists that a beach they are visiting is one of the best in the world.

Awarded to coastal destinations which have achieved the highest quality in water, facilities, safety, environmental education and management, the programme strives to promote sustainable development in coastal areas.

A beach can be eligible for the Blue Flag if it is an officially designated bathing area with at least one sampling point for water analysis. All Blue Flags are only awarded for one season at a time.
