Beach etiquette: rules of behavior on vacation
There is office etiquette, rules of conduct at the table and even the rules of phone calls! Passion.ru introduces you to etiquette on the beach. Enjoy your health!
Late summer. Deckchair. Family beach expensive hotel and Spa. Dozing off under the giant brim of my hat while the kids have fun with the animators. And suddenly: “Pis-piss, come on, daughter, pee in the stones, no one is looking”… And I immediately moved to Anapa. Mid 80’s, city beach. But even then, all my insides protested against non-compliance with basic standards of behavior on the beach, regardless of whether you are a baby or a lady in the “last attack of youth.”
Is there no beach etiquette? Judging by the fact that from year to year people change clothes, covered with a towel, extinguish cigarette butts in the sand and walk along the promenade in shorts and bras(Oh, Yes, sorry, swimwear), it has not come up?! Nothing of the kind, it exists — I am happy to share with readers Passion.ru these simple rules. Especially since many are just planning their vacation.
On the beach and by the pool
Even if the area of your beach is more like a cat’s rookery, and looking at the crowd of people, you remember the footage from the movie “Be my husband”, it is still necessary to adhere to certain rules of etiquette. They, by the way, very much depend on what type of beach you have a rest. The beaches are family-run or shared, and the beaches were Topless (where the girls can sunbathe without the top accessories, swimsuit), nudist (here supposed to be without clothes) and separate for men and women. Depending on the type of beach depends on your “dress code”.
For your psychological comfort and the benefit of others it is recommended for a couple of weeks before the holiday a little “Browning”, weeding a couple of beds or go to the Solarium and, of course, to do hair removal. Including bikini area, so as not to drive in the paint of others.
Coming to the beach with a full marathon is not fashionable. Maximum — waterproof mascara and sunscreen.
In order to change into a swimsuit or, conversely, remove wet clothes, use special cabins. This also applies to dressing children. Let them know from childhood that it is right to do it in a special place, and not wrapped in a towel. By the way! Changing rooms also need to be used for their intended purpose: do not leave them personal hygiene. Spare the psyche of vacationers.
The place where you decide to stay, choose guided by certain rules: throw the litter in the shade of the “mushroom” at the chaise longue, you can only if you enlist the permission of its owner — the person who paid for it money. The same applies to the shadows cast by fashionable today on the beaches of “trestles”. And it is best to rent an umbrella for yourself.
Do not try to squeeze in or “lie down” next to the sun loungers. People who paid for them, have every right to settle on them comfortably and not to be nervous, every time getting up, trying not to step on your head.
If you put your umbrella, then make sure that it is well fixed and does not fly away with every gust of wind (it can injure someone from others). Want to put up a tent — ask the opinion of tourists and do not forget to fix it well.
Although the beach is not recommended to drink alcohol, of course, it will be up to you. But in any case, if you are going to do it, take care of special packages for alcohol.
Smoking on the beach is only allowed in designated areas. There are benches, an ashtray, and even an awning.
Garbage, fruit bones, cups of coffee put in a bag. That he did not fly away, press it with a stone or sprinkle with sand.
If you want to listen to music on the beach, use headphones so as not to disturb others.
A separate topic — children on the beach. On the one hand, people came to the sea or lay down by the pool to relax, on the other — the children also want to get away. In their understanding to have a rest is to splash and shout. That’s normal. But if your child throws stones into the water or throws sand at other children, it should be stopped immediately. Try to explain to the children that walking past the people sprawled on the sand should be careful not to step on their hands and not showering their beds with pebbles.
And still Pro babies (want to believe, that adults until this not think of it): write in sea, in bushes or on a pebble not comme Il faut. Even on an ordinary city beach in Krasnodar Krai there are toilets. And if for some reason there is no room for boys and girls (or leaves much to be desired), then nothing prevents you from visiting the restroom of any cafe on the waterfront.
If you and your friends are passionate fans of beach volleyball, play for health, but only on specially designated areas or at least at a decent distance from the tourists, so as not to slap into someone’s ball and not to disturb the “spray” of sand.
It is ugly to consider other vacationers on the beach, and even more so to comment on their cellulite, stretch marks or beer bellies. And, of course, you can not take pictures of them without obtaining consent. Otherwise, the “model” may start a scandal — and will be right.
If you are resting alone and want to swim, but are worried about the safety of their belongings, ask someone to look after them. Do not refuse such favors to others, of course, if you are not going to leave.
As a rule, the territory of the beach is not allowed dogs, but if you are still allowed to spend it, then make sure that before the dog did all his business. And do not let your pet swim in a place where all splash. You can even eat with your dog from the same plate and vaccinations it may be more than all others combined, but this does not mean that swimming with your dog is nice to everyone. People are different.
If you are one of those vacationers who on the way to the sea “throws the bones” at the pool, then here to you “additive” to sea etiquette. So, in advance explain to children (the played husband) that it is not necessary to run up and jump into the pool with cries “bomb”. The people in the loungers probably don’t want that around them were running around with water pistols, the “Indian chief”.
Animators are a separate topic. Their duty is to entertain tourists, but not to impose their communication. So if you Spud a very active young man, and your husband, despite his protests, the animators throw in the pool, then ask the merry men no longer do it. Will not help — “squeal” to the management of the hotel, sanatorium.
On the waterfront, in cafes and shops
Those who are going to leave the beach, should freshen up. Almost everywhere there are signs prohibiting walking around on the beach areas in a negligee, but still most of the people ignore this recommendation. Leaving the beach, be sure to throw something out of clothes over a swimsuit. Girls can be limited to a pair. What’s that for, you’re at a resort? Thus, you will show elementary respect for the residents of the city in which you rest. But at least save yourself from pneumonia in the shops desperately “sharashit” air conditioners. And in General, to go “naked” in the cafe… you know.
By the way, about coastal cafes and restaurants. Despite the fact that many of them are adjacent to the beach, to visit them in bathing suits is not good. Moreover, it is desirable not just to throw a pareo or pull shorts, but also to remove bathing clothes. Agree, the following visitors will be unpleasant to sit on wet chairs. And of course, you shouldn’t use the chairs in the restaurant as a dryer for wet things, but you, of course, and this would not have occurred to you, right?!..
This is not the whole list of how not to behave on the beach and in the resort city. Perhaps you have something to tell — welcome to the discussion!
