One of the fastest growing villages in the Scotland shire of Aberdeenshire is Balmedie. This is in part due to its beautiful sandy beach that attracts visitors from around the region. However, thousands of people every year get into trouble and risk injury at the beach.
Tips for beach safety
- Make sure you read the safety signs at the entrance to the beach. They will tell you if there are any hazards and the safest areas to go swimming
- Always swim between the red and yellow flags as these areas are patrolled by lifeguards
- If you are in the water and get into trouble then stick your hand up into the air and yell for help to notify the lifeguard
- If possible, try not to swim alone
- Check the weather before you go to the beach
- If you see someone in trouble, tell the lifeguard
