5. The Tan

Working on a beach all day in the sun (weather not guaranteed) you’re likely to develop a lovely healthy glow.

Don’t worry if tanning isn’t your thing – we recommend applying sun cream, which is always available in the lifeguard hut.

6. You’ll meet new people everyday

7. It’s a great way to stay fit

Being in the water and running along the sand is a great way to keep in shape

8. Catch some surf after work

What a perfect way to unwind – grab your board and hit the waves. Or maybe go for a relaxing swim.

9. Gain experience that will help you travel the world
