A public guarded beach is the best choice for a swim, because:
- The beach area is well maintained and any dangerous objects are removed from the bottom;
- Jumping towers are checked and maintained and the water in the landing area is deep enough and with a safe bottom;
- The swimming area is marked with buoys and is being guarded;
- Lifeguards notice dangers both in water and on shore and help avoid accidents;
- Rescue workers and EMT services know the locations of public beaches and will have a quick response time in the event of an accident;
- Flags indicate if the weather and water are suitable for swimming.
