on arrival and in resort - beaches
Our website descriptions give a fair indication of the types of beach at resorts and of the availability of any watersports or other beach related activities. Even the 'safest' beach can become dangerous in unusual weather conditions so you should always check the area before swimming and obey any warning signs and flags and NEVER swim after dark or after consuming alcohol. Do not spend too long sunbathing. Take plenty of breaks in the shade and take in plenty of non-alcoholic drinks to replace body fluids. Remember, sea breezes can be deceiving, giving the impression it is not quite as hot as it actually is. The EU publishes an annual report available to the public, listing the beaches throughout Europe that don't meet the Commission's requirements on cleanliness.
