The ‘1-1-2’ recommends that you follow the instructions of the lifeguards at the lifeguard post at all times, and that you pay attention to the colour of the flag flying at the lifeguard post before entering the water.
As well as bathing in supervised areas, leave the water immediately if you feel dizzy, cramps or any other indisposition, sunbathe with precautions, use a suitable sunscreen and hydrate frequently, paying special attention to children and the elderly.
