Tips when viewing beach hut
Before accepting a beach hut and parting with cash check
- Check for rodent droppings or poison on the
floor – if there are any decline the
room. Rodents can chew through your things as well as prove to
be unpopular visitors in the night.
- Check the facilities – if you don’t have your own mosquito net check one is
provided. Also check there is a ceiling fan, light and power if you need
- What’s around? – are their bars
either side of the beach hut that play loud music all night long? Is
there a well used lane own the side of your hut? Lanes often bring noise and
an increased security risk.

Tips for staying in a beach hut
- Use your own padlack on the door – you don’t know who might have keys for the provided
padlock. So use your own – keyless combination padlocks are
particularly good, as there are no keys to loose.
- Secure your poseesions – beach huts
are easy to break into. Padlock luggage zips and locks when going out,
also secure your lugage to fittings such as bed frames using a chain or
similar. Most thieves will grab what they can quiclky and run. The
harder you make it the less they are likely to take. Stash valuables in
the bottom of secured luggage.
