Going to the Beach
"When in Rome" as they
say.. Fort Lauderdale is blessed with one of the best beaches in
the world! The city does a wonderful job keeping our beaches
safe and clean. Please do your part. Lifeguards are generally on
duty during daylight hours. Watch for various warnings such as
heavy surf or strong undertow. A red flag will indicate these
conditions. If you are new to ocean swimming, remember that you
can be carried out to sea by ocean currents (there are much
better ways to get to The Bahamas.) A good tip is to pick a
landmark on the beach (best not someone in a skimpy bathing
suit, as they tend to move a lot) and keep your eye on it as a
point of reference. If you're there to sunbathe (a nice way to
say cruise the scenery) we strongly recommend using a sun block.
If you have just arrived from the "Great White North" you may
want to pace your exposure to the sun over the first few days.
Nothing is worse than a bad case of sunburn or sunstroke and we
don't want you spending the rest of your vacation in bed
(..well, at least not alone!).
