Take special precautions, as unprotected skin can be damaged and can burn quickly. Seek shade and minimize exposure to direct Sun in a period between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when UV radiation is most intense; keep in mind that shade structures like parasols or canopies do not provide perfect sun protection. On bright days sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays should be worn. A hat with a wide brim is extremely helpful, as it can prevent roughly 50% of UV radiation from reaching the eyes. Prolonged stay under the direct sun should be avoided as much as possible, especially if a person burns easily. Sunscreen with a minimum 30 sun protection factor should always be used. Beware! The strength of the UV rays is significantly increased by the reflection of the water and sand.
