Beach Etiquette

Going to the Beach this Weekend?

Posted by Liz Taylor Jul 26, 2013

A recent survey found the biggest beach violations to be: urinating in the water (53% of people surveyed admitted to doing this - gross!), littering, smoking, men wearing speedos and women dressed in scantily clad apparel. If you are going to the beach anytime soon, keep the following tips in mind:

1.)    Have food, snacks, sunscreen, towels, hats and other necessary items on hand. Don’t borrow from others.

2.)    Observe locations of those already situated on the beach. Try to keep a respectful amount of space from anyone already in an established spot.

3.)    Noise travels on the beach so keep your voice or any music as low as possible.

4.)    Do not smoke. Depending on the wind conditions, smoke and other fumes linger around people or can travel for quite a distance.  

5.)    Avoid walking too close to other people’s towels while wearing flip flops. It will flip the sand right onto their towel.

6.)    Play games away from sunbathers. Remember that many people come to the beach to relax; not worry about flying balls over their heads.

7.)    Behave as if you are in someone else’s backyard, not your own. Be quiet, considerate and keep distance from your neighbors.  

8.)    When shaking the sand from your towel, make sure the wind won’t blow the sand on others.

Have a great time at the beach this weekend!
