jan kranendonk/

Hogging deckchairs and playing load music are the top annoyances for beach- and pool-goers, according to a new TripAdvisor survey.

The TripAdvisor Beach & Pool Etiquette Survey found that loud music (18%), people not picking up after their dogs (11%) and deckchair hogging (9%) were the main annoyances for beachgoers, while those visiting swimming pools were most irritated by deckchair hogging (29%), loud music (11%) and smoking (10%).

Annoying behaviour also appears to be becoming more common, with 83% of respondents saying people often violate some form of beach or pool etiquette, up from 74% in 2011. Thirty-one percent have asked a stranger to stop behaving rudely at the beach or pool, up from 26% last year.
