Becky BostwickIt is always best to stay between the red and yellow flags just a bit West of where you were, Toby. That has been checked as a safe area and has life-guards on-hand. Swimming near the working fishing boats or scrabbling on the rocks can be dangerous especially if you are not aware of what the tides are doing. The sea is impressive and magic but dangerous. Our hard-working charity the RNLI may not always be there to help you out and obviously always take some time to launch; they are not (quite) magic! Unfortunately, as they are a charity, resources wasted on unnecessary call-outs may mean they don't have the resources to help those really in need. Be safe!
