Seek local knowledge. The local population will always know the safest areas to enjoy, especially the lifeguards at the beach! As well as being able to react to any incident, lifeguards are really there to inform the public about anything that maybe dangerous in the water. Brightly colored flags and notices may warn you of danger, but always ask that on duty what the signs mean, but most importantly obey them, they are there for your safety.
