When at the beach, try to stay out of the sun whenever you are out of the water. UV rays reflect off the water and sand at the beach, making it even more dangerous than the pool. A beach umbrella or beach shelter should be erected for you to lounge under. Beach shelters are preferable, as they are a tented structure that keeps more sun out. In addition to protecting you from burns, they will keep give you shade and prevent your body from overheating. Always keep plenty of bottled water handy to prevent dehydration and if you bring snacks, make them fruits for energy.
