Swimming off some parts of the beach at Constance Bay, where a sandbar drops off dramatically into fast-flowing water, can be treacherous. The locals know this, but it isn’t common knowledge among those from afar who come to relax in the summer. On Saturday, a 10-year-old boy drowned there. “It’s only a matter of time before it happens again,” one resident said.

Why is there no signage to point out where the dangers lie? Here, the buck-passing begins.
