while some show a shape in one image, but other's, possibly during the northern winter, show an empty deserted beach.



I would consider lifeguard=place to be still acceptable for these if there is some defined time when a lifeguard is present. Maybe specified with a seasonal tag or opening_hours (e.g. only on weekends or something like that).



Maybe the wiki's need to be modified (consolidated?) to emphasize that "lifeguard" refers to rescue of swimmers in the water?




I didn’t check it out myself, but, based on what you wrote, probably. Also, probably means that it’s not a good idea to just do a mechanical edit from the current tags to the new ones without reviewing all of them.
