Hi there I hope some one will be able to share advice and experiences about this question ..How do you tell if it's safe to swim in the sea,apart from not swimming in a storm.How do you tell what rip tides are? If you look at the beach just after the waves have broke and they reveal a sharp steep slope at the shore line,is it safe to swim their?I like to find deserted beaches but am unsure about swimming safety

kind regards

be love be peace be happy.

If in doubt about a beach don't swim.
If you doubt your ability don't swim.
Don't go in if no one else is in,

It's also possible to enjoy the sea without going out of your depth!!

Hi biglzz!

The sea can indeed be dangerous at some moments!!!
In my experience is the sea more quite at the westshore, like goa and karnataka
Varkala sea is already more wild at some times
The sea on the east side, like chennai and pondichery is crazywild with riptides and soo many waves, the last is then also good for surfing.
So to enjoy a quite and friendly sea ( most of the times, preferebly not in the rainseason)I think Goa is the best place

Send your wife in for a swim, if she comes back, it's safe.
