A COMBINATION of high UV, hot weather and strong winds are expected to create holiday hazards among summer fun.
Surf Life Saving Tasmanian general manager Tony van den Enden said winds had already led to some rescues.
"Right now the wind is the biggest hazard," Mr van den Enden said.
"We're urging a lot of caution with people using anything that floats on the water - dinghies, kayaks, lilos, that kind of thing."
He said people should always swim with a friend, or notify someone if they were intending to swim at the beach.
"In the next few days challenges like strong winds will create a potential for flash rips, particularly around pontoons, headlands, rocky areas and longer beaches," Mr van den Enden said.
People have also been advised to Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and Slide by the Tasmanian Cancer Council.
"From now until the middle of April, UV levels in Tasmania typically reach three and above, which is when UV radiation can damage skin and eyes and lead to skin cancer," a Cancer Council spokeswoman said.
The weather has been caused by a high-pressure system that's moved south from the mainland.
"We'll probably knock off a few records somewhere in the state tomorrow," a Bureau of Meteorology spokesman said.
The Tasmanian Cancer Council and Surf Life Saving Tasmania have smartphone applications that can be used for UV levels and a complete rundown of Tasmanian beaches.
