Safety tips for visiting Cornish beaches this summer

With only an estimated 30% of beaches covered by lifeguards this summer, stay safe at the beach with these top tips.



If you're visiting Cornwall this summer, chances are you'll want to head to the coast during your holiday. We don't blame you! You'll discover an abundance of beauty spots on our coastline. From seaside town favourites perfect for sunbathing and swimming, to massive stretches of sand with brilliant surf, and charming, shingled coves and rockpools. Whatever your perfect beach looks like, we want everyone to enjoy the beaches safely and responsibily this summer.


During lockdown, none of our beaches were being monitored by lifeguards, and the RNLI have announced that they expect to provide lifeguard services on 30% of the beaches for peak summer season. This means we all need to do our bit to keep the beaches a fun and safe place to visit. Newquay Activity Centre have highlighted some key actions and rules we can abide by to ensure our safety and wellbeing at the beach in this handy infographic:
