Learn to identify fire coral and stay well away from it.. It won't touch you, you have to touch it! (same goes for sea urchins!)
If you wear a 1 mill body suit it will prevent fire coral stings..
Reef Safe Sunscreen
( Please Note: Nothing works better than UV protecting long sleeve shirts!)
Here's something I bet you didn't know: the active ingredients in some sunscreens stay active when they wash off of your body into the sea. When they land on coral reefs, the sunscreens block the beneficial rays of sun which keep bad bugs on the coral at bay, and encourage viruses which eventually bleach and kill the reef.
Every single sunscreen, even the fancy health food store types, have at least one of the four ingredients which cause the damage. The ingredients are: parabens, cinnamates, benzophenones and camphor derivatives. Here are some of the names you'll see on the bottles: Oxybenzone, benzophenone-3, octyl-methoxycinnamate. But look out for parabens and the camphor derivatives, too.
Caribbean Sol Sunscreen does not contain these ingredients.
