Tips and comments

Never let a young child get close to the ocean as they do not understand the danger that they could potentially drown in the water, especially if waves come in.

If you see there is a large tide incoming, you should always move your family back or choose a different day for your family to spend a nice relaxing day at the beach together!

Use caution and always make your toddler wear a life jacket if they intend on going anywhere near the water. Always apply SPF 50 sunscreen when on the beach so the child will not burn. If the child has sensitive skin you may also want to make them wear a cover-up to be extra cautious.
