The number of people who died along Britain's coast in 2013 was the highest in four years, the RNLI said as it launches a campaign calling on people to Respect the Water.
Figures show that 167 people died in water-related accidents and a further 368 were rescued by lifeguard crews after getting into difficulties.
Cold water shock, rip currents and fatigue were common factors in contributing to accidents at the coast while alcohol played a part in 28 deaths last year.
As the temperature continues to soar RNLI coastal safety manager Ross Macleod called for people to stay safe around the water.
"We really feel that that number is too high and we need to do something about it," he said.
The campaign will be launched in Brighton today by England rugby player James Haskell who said: "This is about being smart and safe when you are there."
The future of the Tropicana in Weston-super-Mare is once again in doubt after North Somerset Council reported that the latest proposals to fund a restoration project appear to have failed.
In a statement the Council said:
Following the failure of Trop WsM Ltd to come forward with any funding agreement for their project, and an independent assessment of the current proposals, North Somerset Council members will now be asked to consider the next steps for the Tropicana site at Weston-super-Mare.
According to the Council, The West of England Local Enterprise Partnership has concluded that: 'the business plan as currently presented together with the clarification provided is most likely to fail in terms of securing funding for the development'.
As a result the council is now reconvening the Tropicana Working Party to consider the next steps for development of the site. It is expected to report to the next meeting of the Council on 15th July
