    You’ll learn about beach amenities, and even where to park.  Search by beach name or geographic area.  The app is free for iOS and Android.

    Sunzapp gives you all the info you need to be sun safe.  It considers your skin type, location and environmental conditions.  It factors in clothing, sunscreen and more.  All based on info from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
