So my suggestion would be to go on a rock beach, with a snorkel, an
umbrella, a lot of sunscreen, going by bike or by foot, checking the
forecast to avoid tsunami, and avoid beaches populated by sharks.
It requires some more work and put additional constraints, but it
still achieves your goal, in a safer/better way :)
