The beach is a very popular vacation spot during the summer, but it's very important to follow guidelines and safety rules. Typically beach rules are posted near the entrance and there should be a colored flag flying near the lifeguard stand. Ensure you are aware what each color represents and follow the rules depending on what color is flying. Rip tides are a certain type of current that moves rapidly under the water. Rip tides can be very dangerous, so it's crucial to be aware of the warning signs. A few easy ways to spot a rip tide include foam on the beach, if the waves aren't breaking and if you can see seaweed being pulled from the shoreline. The beach is a great place to vacation, but make sure you are being safe doing so.
