Beach Safety

If you're heading for the beach, there are things you can do to keep yourself and your family safe.

Check out and share these lifesaving resources and social media posts online and in your community. Three version of our safety videos are available to download: one for the UK and one for Ireland (both in English) and one version for Wales (in Welsh).

Join the conversation online using the #RespectTheWater hashtag, and #ParchwchYDŵr for Wales.

To request signage or posters in an editable format please email water_safety@rnli.org.uk.
