    I'm not really the fun in the sun, beach type. Plus Im allergic to sun screen, so I would definitely be in the shade.

    I would be in the shade if the sun is really hot. Remember the beautiful rays can become very painful if get sun burned.

    I used to go to the beach a lot as I lived in a beach town. Unfortunately, I stayed hours and hours in the very bright, hot sunshine, burned on top of burned....unaware of the damage I was doing to my skin.  So yes, bright hot sunshine for me....although I am wiser now - but the skin, well that damage can't be undone.

    Here in Australia we are encouraged to not spend too much time in the sun.  Australian's, apparently, have the highest rate of skin cancer in the world and many die each year from melanomas.   Today we're encouraged to wear hats, slap on sunscreen oitments and generally not stay out in direct sunshine for too long.

    Unfortunately, in the past, i.e. before around 1980 or so, many Aussies spent hours sunbaking.  It was regarded a 'cool' to have a great tan.  Still is, in some circles.

    On the other hand, some people - especially people from China, I've noticed - carry umbrellas (parasols) to keep the sun off them.  They're apparently not aware that too little sunlight can end up causing a Vitamen D dificiency and result in Ricketts.   So, overall some direct sunlight is necessary to our health: too much is bad for us.

    When I go to the beach the only time I am in the sun is when I do my 1.5 mile walk starting at 6 a.m. and then if I go outside for any reason other than the morning walk.  I normally do not like to be in the sun, just for the sake of sunbathing because I don't like to get hot.  In the summer it really helps to have a swimming pool to cool off in.

    I'd be in the shade...   ...inside the nearest air-conditioned building! wink

      Yes that too! I forgot to mention I stay in the air-conditioning as much as possible in the summer, even at the beach!

    I love the beach and whenever i go i manage to lay in the sun. I just love the sun shining in my face. Sometimes i don't even go into the water.

      I love the warm sun on my face. It's a great feeling. I like to go in the water though, when it gets too hot:)
      Thank you,

    Honestly, I go in to the water.

    Sun is not a problem, and I have no issues staying under it. I would though, avoid the beaches in summer. Besides, in India, unlike Australia, New Zealand and South America, the instances of skin cancer are very rare and hence not a necessity to stay out of the Sun's gaze, so to say.

      I wonder why skin cancer is at a low rate in India as compared to Australia, New Zealand, and South America?
      Thank you for your comment,

      The ozone layer is depleted over the South pole and hence the southern tip of most countries including Australia, New Zealand and S. America are exposed to direct U.V. rays.. That's why more instances of skin cancer there...
