No trip to Tramore is complete without going to the beach and that often means a lot of children running around and having fun. While this is great, it is really important to keep families safe on the beach which is exactly why there is a lifeguard station set up by the area with a qualified lifeguard always on duty. You can swim and you and you can allow your kids to swim with the confidence that nothing bad will happen. This has definitely seen a decline in regards to both minor and major incidents on the beautiful beaches of Tramore and it’s sure to put your mind at ease as a tourist also.
A 3 storey lifeguard training centre was actually opened in Tramore in 2015, which has seen an increase an lifeguards and people becoming more confident with their ability in the water in general. This scheme was actually put together by Irish Water Safety and the Tramore Surf Lifesaving Club and it has proved to be a huge success. The centre accommodates local life savers and also professional lifeguards during the busy summer months of the year. If you are holidaying with your family in Tramore, you will obviously want to ensure you are safe and this is exactly what this does.
This centre has no doubt made Tramore Bay safer for everyone to enjoy and professionals have said they are really happy with this positive notion which tourists are also making the most of. In addition to training lifeguards, there is a third floor observation desk which gives a panoramic view of Tramore Bay so that all swimmers can be seen at all times. This is in operation all day long during the summer and it has already helped some swimmers and children out of some tricky situations.
