Beaches across the country are expected to be packed to their maximum as the year draws closer to its final days.

Most holidaymakers continue to flock to their nearest beaches in anticipation of the New Year.

Tragic water accidents tend to happen quickly and most are caused by a lack of knowledge or plain ignorance.

Beach Authorities advise that first to note is to be aware of your immediate environment and never lose sight of the little ones.

Tagging children with a telephone number to call in case of an emergency may be a good precautionary measure.

If one can swim, it's advisable that areas supervised by lifeguards be chosen and these are usually in a zone between two red and yellow flags.

Protection of skin from over exposure to the sun is recommended by putting sunscreen and drinking plenty of fluids, preferably water.
