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.Share on Facebook
