If they move around the beach day to day, then the lifeguard=place tag
isn't appropriate. I think it's only when there is pretty much a permanent
chair/position (can be seasonal or with opening hours, but has some
recurrence to it)

supervised <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:supervised>=* to
indicate if the beach has a lifeguard (yes, no, interval - in the format of
