Everyone loves going to the beach in the summertime. Whether it’s fearsome wave surfing you’re after or taking in the sights under an umbrella, there’s something for everyone at the beach.
Here are 12 things you can do at the beach to make the most of your day and make fun lasting memories.
Grab a couple of friends and loved ones, a picnic blanket, and food of your choice from one of the many vendors around to have a great time. Secrets will be shared, jokes will be made and delicious food will be eaten. There’s not much more to ask for when describing joy. To spice it up, ask each of your friends to bring a dish they made themselves for the picnic to add to the picnic.
The sun shining high above you, slight gusts of wind, and an adrenaline rush due to the constant throwing of the volleyball back and forth. It’s a great way to make use of the soft sand of the beach and partake in a competition of agility. You’re not only having a blast but you’re also giving yourself a full-body workout. Just remember not to get too serious on the game and let a potential loss ruin your day, instead focus on living in the moment.
Bask underneath the sun and let it give you a nice tan in the meantime. There’s not much you could do physically there but it’s important to give in to your senses and listen to what they tell you. Noticing the waves crashing against the shore, the birds chirping high above, and the sound of laughter and joy all around give you peace of mind. Just remember not to stay in the sun too long without the proper protection or you’ll get a sunburn.
The art of surfing is one that is both fulfilling and refreshing. Whether you know how to surf or not it is equally an enjoyable feeling, rising above the waves and using them to propel yourself forward is delightful. Even if you don’t know how to surf, the process of rising and falling over and over again is not in the least bit repetitive and makes you feel that much better when you finally nail it that one time.
5: Walk Across The Beach
A simple yet very effective method of calming yourself and enjoying the serenity all around. Walk across the shore, take in the views over the horizon and collect unique seashells along the way. It’s a natural stress reliever, one that makes you forget all your worries and instead helps you cherish the memories you’re making. Who knows, you might even spot a dolphin or two jumping around across the sea.
6: Capture The Moment
Whatever you’re doing make sure to take lots of photos and capture the moment for later, these pictures won’t only capture where you were but also remind you how you felt at that point in life. It doesn’t matter whether you’re on a picnic or playing volleyball, have someone take a candid picture of you. As an added bonus, you can add to your social media accounts by posting them later.
7: Make A Sandcastle
It almost seems like a tradition to make something out of sand whenever you’re at the beach and rightfully so because it’s a way to leave your mark there. At least temporarily you can use your creativity to form some magnificent castle or just to change things up, make a sandman. The best part is if you don’t want to let the waves naturally wash your creation away, you can just as creatively destroy it yourselves. Nothing feels better than throwing a pebble at your castle and watching it slowly crumble as if you were laying down a siege.
8: Clean The Environment
It is imperative that you do your best to take care of the environment. That means, picking up wrappers, old cans, and used sunscreen/lotion bottles. We also have to not litter the surroundings and refrain from throwing away soda cans and used lotion bottles. You can also invest in reusable custom essential oil packaging to avoid littering. Protecting the environment is crucial and we should never abuse it.
Above all the one thing you should do with your time at the beach is to just relax in any way you can. You don’t have to take lots of pictures or make loads of sandcastles unless those very things relax you. It’s important you chill because this is you taking time out for yourself. So loosen up and do whatever you want to destress yourself.
The amount of things to do at the beach is almost infinite and is the highlight of summer for many people. It isn’t important if you’re just visiting a local beach or on vacation, the beach is just as amazing both ways and the possibilities are endless. So head down to the beach and have the time of your life.
