Note: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature', 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', or 'real feel', is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity to determine the human-perceived temperature equivalent. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (differences in body mass, height, and shape, clothing, metabolic differences), and activity. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact and may raise the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly important for children. Children are often less aware of the need to rest and re-hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - it is vital to remain hydrated, particularly during prolonged physical activities.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 37.5°C (99.5°F) to 38.3°C (100.9°F), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.

The Sun's UV radiation is most powerful between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. To the extent possible, limit exposure to the direct sun during these hours. A wide-brim hat offers excellent sun protection for eyes, ears, face, and neck. Sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection significantly reduce eye damage from sun exposure. Tightly woven, loose-fitting clothes provide additional protection from the Sun. Beware! The strength of the UV rays is significantly increased by the reflection of the water and sand.
