Brighton beach: Let’s get swimming!

Beach3

Tempted for a swim?

You know it’s happening. It’s almost hot enough; in fact it has already been hot enough for that first sea swim of the year. Children are already playing at the water’s edge and with temperatures (at times) touching 30C, pretty soon we’ll be stripping off and getting in.

If it’s just to cool down, you can get in anywhere along the front. Although, there are a few spots that have their advantages, and a number of safety points to watch for.

Palace Pier beach gets top rating!

Brighton’s Palace Pier beach has been awarded the top standard in the Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide!

Palace Pier beach gets top ranking!

We’ve always known it is a great place to swim and chill. So it’s little surprise that the MCS report was so flattering when it came to checking out our favourite hangout. So here are some of the quotes from the MCS report:

Water grade 2010: Highest UK standard for bathing quality (recommended for the last three years!).

Meets European water quality standards

Things to do: Swimming, surfing, seafront promenade walks, kite flying, many summer festivals.

Local Facilities: food, toilets, disabled toilets, shops, litter bins.

Wildlife & Walks: Coastal walks include the famous Seven Sisters path along the south coast.

Litter: Beaches cleaned daily.

“Highly popular shingle and sand beach serving one of Britain’s most famous seaside resorts. Local attractions include the refurbished pier, fun fairs, arcades and local shopping.”

The beach was also praised for having plentiful parking.

No excuse then, get those bags packed and get ready for a great beach bank holiday weekend!

Sun love, not sunburn

Stay safe in the sun

Stay safe in the sun

We all love sitting with the family on Brighton beach. It’s safe, it’s clean and it’s so much fun. But take care, at times it gets a lot hotter than you might think and before you know it, it’s lobster time!
With the massive bank holiday approaching and loads of people visiting the city – some with families, others with stag and hen parties – it’s time for some expert sun protection advice.
Follow these simple guidelines and you’ll go home happy and rested, not battered and knackered!
• Avoid the midday sun
• Cover up: we all like a tan, but it’s more important to protect your skin. Wear caps and hats and lightweight clothing.
• Find out your skin type, some people need more protection than others. Consider how much protection you should have, and investigate UVB/UVA rays – the sun emits both.
• Use creams to protect your skin: Apply before you go out, not afterwards and check they are in date, then re-apply throughout the day.
• Children have especially sensitive skin so keep an eye on your youngsters. If in doubt, give them a break under a parasol between 11am and 3pm when the sun is at its strongest.
• In fact, give yourself a break during these hours, too. If Brighton’s recent weather is anything to go by, you’ll still have plenty of time to tan.

Books for the Beach: Brighton Rock

With so many of us choosing to come to Brighton for a day on the beach, lets look at one book that you need to pick up before you settle in the sun.

This is not a novel for the children. But for those of you on the lookout for a dark thriller, something to cast a sinister shadow over the streets, it’s a great read.
