Safety Rules When Swimming.

Ofcause there are all the standard rules for swimming at the beach like not go swimming when you are exhausted or overheated etc. In this article I will look into what is essential for Phuket, other provinces in Thailand can have other things to be aware of.

Swimming can be hazardous during in the monsoon season – May to November. The surf can be very strong, and the monsoon can also bring in the Portuguese man-o-war jellyfish near to the coast. While they are rarely fatal, they might give you a painful sting.

But first of all, if there are red flags along the beach, DO NOT go swimming.

Especially in low season, you can come along beaches with no other people so always try to see if the beach has a lifeguard you can ask for advice.

If there is no lifeguard on duty, and there are no other people on the beach you have to be very careful if you decide to go swimming and never go into the water alone.

On some of the beaches, there are safe zones for designated for swimming marked out with flags or floating ropes.

Respecting the safety zones is essential. They are made to keep you safe, a significant safety issue on the beaches are jet skis, speedboats, longtail boats and other kinds of crafts.

When the pilots of the speedboats and longtail boats often are experienced people who know what they are doing, then it is not the case with the jet skies which is mostly piloted by pleasure-seeking tourists on a speed rush in a little watercraft with a way too big engine.

On some beaches at certain periods of the year, there can be Rip Currents.
If you are caught in a current, don’t try to fight it or swim against it. You can make it back to shore by swimming gradually away from it. I am not an expert on the subject so I advise you to read more about it here…

Do Not Swim During Thunderstorms, leave the water immediately if you hear thunder or see lightning, lightning often strike water and always the highest point, so if you have the head above the water it can be struck by lightning.
