Its summer in Denmark. We have 7000 km of beaches at The North Sea, Skagerak, Kattegat, Lillebælt, Storebælt, Øresund and Østersøen.

At the North Coast of North Zealand – a 60 km distance of The Danish Riviera there are 21 lifeguards post with trained young men and woman. 2 times a day they measure water and air temperature and run up a flag – green, yellow or red to tell visitors how safe it is go bathing:

Green flag: Bathing allowed,

Yellow flag: Bathing allowed, but be extra attentive,

Red flag: Bathing forbidden.
