For lot of us beach holiday stands for sunbathing, reading, sleeping, little bit of swimming or floating on the waves and then repeating. It’s a appealing way to recover from the stress of everyday life. This would be a usual pattern at the beginning of beach vacation. After a few days, when we partly recharged our batteries, we can really increase amount of fun a make our holidays memorable. Depending on who is your company on the vacation – here are some suggestions how to fully enjoy and have a lot of fun!

Fun beach activities for adults

Either if you are with your partner, friend or bunch of friends – you can choose some activities suitable for the beach.

Go Snorkeling

If the waves are not too intense and the water is clear, great way to enjoy your time on the beach is snorkeling. You can do it on your own or with someone else. You don’t even need to be excellent swimmer for this activity, just wear a life jacket.

Surf

If you are into water sports, surfing is an ultimate beach activity. It’s not easy sport, though, if you are not a pro then you will need some lessons first to get to know the basics.

Beach Volleyball

It doesn’t have to be professional, you can easily play with a beach ball. It’s most efficient when some music is around, it’ll make your body move easier.

Board Games

Bring some board games (chess,backgammon, dominos) and spend some fun time with your friends.

    Thank you, Henderson, for your kind comment. Big Bravo for your choice of Italy, I’m sure you will have a wonderful vacation there. The coast is beautiful and have offers for various tastes – from long, urban, city beaches to small, intimate, village beaches, rich in culture and architecture.

    Have a great time there and do nothing else but fun!

    Cheers!

It is a really cool and fun stuff to be at the beach especially with family, friends and loved one 😉

Oh! One would have a more better time at the beach with the help of your suggestions of fun things to do at the beach. I’d love to build the Sand Castle with family (kids especially), it will make them feel extremely excited…

Wow! After reading this article and got a picture of how it would look at the beach from those pictures; I felt like I’m missing alot. The truth is I haven’t gone to have fun at the beach before 🙃

Well, let me harm myself with this article; I bet I will have an awesome time at the beach when I take a time out to the beach with my family. Thanks.

    Thank you for your kind comment, I’m glad you liked it. Sometimes we should only focus on our inner child and our own imagination, remembering that happiness is a state of mind 🙂

Chasing after the waves 🌊 would be fun filled 😆…

All these are beautiful ideas of what to do at the beach. How about a party at the beach? Maybe for birthday, get together, picnics, etc. Would be full of fun too. Go with some really good music; play some dance party games and stuffs like that. What do you think about this?

    Picnic or party at the beach sounds also great! Use all your imagination when it comes to having fun and do what ever fun means to you! I also wrote post about ‘beach wedding’ (you can check it, if you like) and is all about party 🙂

    Thank you for your kind comment.

Mr Biizy

I love being creative so I think it will be fun to create photo illusions just as you have said other than taking the regular/standard selfie. As photos are very good at keeping good memories, these memories will be unique because the photos are not the regular/standard selfie photos we use to take before… It’s all good.

Although we’ve started in on the Winter season, this post makes me yearn for the Summer already. Over the years we’ve had plenty of opportunities to enjoy all that the beach has to offer.

Our nearest one is about and hour and a half away, so has been ideal for those occasional days out. Inevitably, we always came back with more than we set out with. Spades, buckets and frisbee’s to name but a few of the beach paraphernalia.

One of the favourites was collecting. Once the joy of playing in the ocean had worn off, the children would go in search of buried treasure, normally in the form of shells or stones. I’m sure there are still some hidden around the house, even now. Your suggestions have added more options to explore the next time we venture to the coast. Thank you.

The beach has always been one of my most favourite places to spend time and this is the main reason why I loved reading this post. I like the fact that you were also able to explain all that there is to do on the beach. Which beach is your most favourite beach to have a very swell time!

    Thank you for your kind comment. I don’t have one favorite beach, since I like to explore new places. For last couple of years, my family and I explore beaches in Greece. Apart so many of coastal beaches there are a lot of islands and various beach(es) types, from small, hidden, intimate ones to large, city urban beaches with bars and small restaurants (called tavernas). I appreciate if there are marked with “Blue Flag” – which means certain criteria include standards for quality, safety, environmental education and information, the provision of services and general environmental management criteria.
