- Do not approach groups of birds resting on the sea.
- Keep a respectful distance from seals, especially on nursery beaches and coastal caves during the pupping season.

- We’re all only just beginning to get used to the ‘new normal’.
- Explore with an open mind and stay safe, do what you can to protect yourself and your host community.
- Respect what is of value to host communities including the Welsh language, local culture, animals and the environment - our coast and countryside is a place of work for farmers, fishermen and others.
- Use designated parking, don’t block access for others, including emergency services.
- When it's busy, please be patient.
- Whenever possible, book ahead. If you can't make it for any reason - let the attraction, restaurant or event organiser know, so that your slot can be allocated to someone else who's waiting.
- Holidays and days out are a time to relax and enjoy, so let’s chill!
