a completely fenced beach:

Very sad.

I've long said that if Poles or Czechs could reserve a seat on the tram or bus to work, some of them would.

No, that`s a real necessity. Have you ever been to the Polish seaside?? Those winds can be really chilly, especially, when you are wet after bathing.

Yes, such as it is.

Those winds can be really chilly,

I come from an island in the North Sea, near to the east coast. Now that's bracing!

You can hire windbreaks there and people sometimes do hire one (but only one and never have their own) however they'd not be used as a barrier for privacy etc.

If you use a windbreaker to repel the chilly winds, it is impossible to avoid creating a barrier to others. It is quite logical. :):):)

I thought you come from Wales. :):)

Not really. You jut use one on th side the wind's coming from. Rather than use several to create a ring.

And you don't even need one at all.

One windbreaker is enough to create a ring. :):):) Besides, the ring is a necessity coz the wind comes from different directions.

Jon, you haven`t been to the Polish seaside. or you were once only. :):):)

And you don't even need one at all.

No. I have been on Polish beaches a few hundred times in my life and believe me, I always felt the need for a windbreaker. When we didn`t have one, we made a low wall of sand around our blanket.

A tiny triangle you could maybe stand up in.

Jon, you haven`t been to the Polish seaside. or you were once only.

Many times. And never used a windbreaker for the winds from the tiny Baltic pond. Perhaps people from mainland drop are just a bit nesh.

The picture is me on a beach in Antarctica, just before the penguin barbecue.

The picture

Your pic shows not a windbreaker but a popierdółka aka parody of one. :):):). It has only 4 poles. A good windbreaker has at least 8 poles.

never used a windbreaker for the winds

Yes, possible, when you travelled alone. Males endure chilling gusts of wind better than females and kids.:):)

That's a typical one from my windy North Sea island.

The Polish one in your pic is more a fence. Part of the psychology of exclusion. At least it doesn't have razor wire on the top.

Yes, possible, when you travelled alone

I've never done that at the Polish 'coast'.

As I say, people here are nesh.

Jon, I know you don't like lols! but really nothing else will suffice................ :))

I can't believe that anyone could be such a wuss as to need a wind breaker on any beach but especially a Polish one. As you say, a pond!

a pond!

Pond or not, the breeze can be chilling sometimes and you seldom know when it will be such. A windbreaker is a must. Simple.

A windbreaker is a must.

That the original need for a practical windbreaker evolved into splendid isolation area for a typical family on the beach is another matter which results from Polish individualism.

Why would anyone want "isolation" on a beach?

And there's nothing "splendid" about hiding behind plastic sheeting.

plastic sheeting

Wrong! Good windbreakers are made of cotton fabrics. And poles are wooden. At least such are our windbreakers.

Why would anyone want "isolation" on a beach?

For multiple reasons. E.g. to prevent alien dogs from defecating on your blanket. Or other wild animals. Check it out:

I don't think a windbreak would do much to stop that.

Pawian, I'm an islander. I know all about sea breezes, and much colder ones than Poland's. Freezing your arse off on the beach is a time honoured tradition :) if you're cold, get up and go for a walk.

What could be more calming than a gentle summer breeze by the calming Irish sea shore?

Yes, that's fairly typical but you get winds like that inland too :) But the Atlantic coastline is the best for winds and waves and getting drenched in sea spray, scrambling over the rocks to escape the incoming tide. I do miss it!

The link below shows the exact place where I used to go running when I lived in Dublin (it's just Dublin Bay /Irish Sea, not Atlantic). The winds were so strong sometimes that you literally had to turn your back and just walk against it backwards while you got your breath.

Tell it to my kids when they were younger and we travelled to the seaside a lot. :):):)

Yes, but it takes time. It is easier to put up a windbreaker. :):)

Apart from kids, there are also wives. Mine always repeats that women are more delicate and fragile than males when low temps are involved.

They may feel the cold more but it won't do them any harm. Like I said, move and get the blood flowing, then go back and sit down.

Plenty of fat arsed Indian women. India is renowned for its fat women apart from the poor unfortunate, skeletal ones who starve in the streets. In fact nearly half of Indian women in urban areas are obese.
