In most destinations, it is NOT a requirement to have a dedicated lifeguard in your holiday accommodation. It is therefore important that you and your party take the time to familiarise yourselves with the pool and pool area. We ask that you are extra vigilant when travelling with children and that they are accompanied by an adult at all times whilst swimming.
Flag warning systems may be in operation on some beaches. Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with local regulations and swimming conditions.
