Ah, the beach. The great place where you can go to relax, swim, hang out with good friends.
Swimming at the beach, well of course. Jump in and get going.
Have a Fire
After a day of swimming, surf, and sand castles, what better way to end the day then to have a fire on the beach.
You can cook, roast marshmellows, sing … whatever you want as you look into the flames.
Fly A Kite
Beaches are great for kite flying. Usually there is plenty of room to fly a kite and the wind is blowing in one direction. Just make sure to hang on to your kite.
Go For A Run
Get some exercise. Even take your shoes off and run barefoot on the sandy beach.
Any why not?
What a beautiful place to get married at. Rent a beach cottage or stay in a condo near the beach, have your wedding vows take place in the sand with the sun in the background and good friends and family near by. Think about an exotic wedding on some of the Thailand’s beaches and spend your honeymoon in most popular Koh Samui villa.
Ride A Fat Bike
Fat bikes aren’t just for snow you know.
Fat bikes are perfect for the soft sandy beaches with those extra wide tires traction and riding around is not a problem.
Walk The Dog
You know the dogs love water don’t you? And they love being able to run around with the wind in their face and an occasional seagull to chase. Who wouldn’t want to be a doggie on the beach?
Surfs up … with the water cooperates and tide is right and the waves are forming and the wind is blowing just right.
Get a board and hit the surf.
Build A Sand Castle
Sand, sun, some water and a few buckets and you are all set for building a few castles in the sand.
Get out your fishing pole, some bait, and head out to the beach. Best times are when the fish are eating and usually that is when it is dark out.
Slap on that sun tan location, plop yourself down on the blanket and you are officially sun tanning. How difficult can that be.
The hard part might be rolling over and getting someone to spread sun tan lotion on your back. Good luck.
While you might not be Olympic beach volleyball material, it doesn’t mean you can’t go out there and spike a few points. Get a few friends, setup a net, and go.
Go For A Walk
One of life’s simple pleasures, a walk on the beach.
Doesn’t get much better than camping out on the beach with the breeze blowing and the sound of waves crashing on the beach. How close you get the water depends on what beach you are at.
Namaste! Relax, take a deep breath, and exhale. Breath in … oh wait, we are not actually at the beach doing yoga. Sorry, my bad.
Take your friends to the beach and light up the night. Beaches are great for parties with good friends.
Get a running start, throw your board out in front of you and jump on. That’s all it takes to get going with skim boarding.
Best and really only type of beach to skimboard on are sandy beaches. Forgot about skim boarding on a rocky beach.
There are a number of public beaches that allow vehicles – like dune buggies and even cars – on the beach. Check the local rules for driving on the beach.
And don’t get trapped on the beach when the tide comes in!
“Sex On The Beach”
Sex on the Beach is when you mix Vodka, Cranberry juice, Peach schnapps, orange juice in a glass filled with ice and garnished with an orange slice.
What did you think it was?
Stand Up Paddle Board
Stand up paddle boards come in a range of lengths. Some are collapsible, and all are fun!
Great way to get some exercise while seeing the shoreline from a different perspective.
Yoga On A Paddle Board
If you can go yoga on a paddle board … I don’t know what to say.
This will require a great deal of concentration and balance.
There a lot of great things to do on the beach.
