STAY SAFE ON THE BEACH DURING YOUR HOLIDAY TO CORNWALL

Sandy stretches, translucent turquoise waters and mysterious coves. If you’re coming on holiday to Cornwall this summer, you’ll be spoilt for choice on seaside spots. Whether you’re looking for the perfect sunbathing spot, surfing paradise or dog-friendly beach, enjoy our beaches safely and responsibly with these top tips.


Lifeguards and covid-19

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the number of lifeguards on beaches across Cornwall are less than usual. The RNLI have stated that they hope to provide lifeguard services on 30% of the beaches for peak summer season. This means, now more than ever, we all have to do our bit to stay safe on the beach and in the water. 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:

YOU’RE IN SAFE HANDS AT THE GREENBANK

Last summer, our teams at The Greenbank and The Working Boat took part in lifesaving training provided by HM Coastguard and Cornwall Fire & Rescue Service. Overseen by RNLI assessors, the team members that took part are now accredited waterside community responders. Find out more about the training provided here.
