If you are a fan of the beach, your beach bucket list should be complete so you can head straight for the action. Some people might not know what they should do on a beach, so here is your handy list of things.
Swim in the ocean
Nothing beats the feeling of diving into the ocean or just standing at its edge and feeling that saltwater on your skin. If you are really daring, challenge yourself to see how deep you can go. It may be very hard to do; there is no shame if it takes some tries. Remember, safety first!
Get sand everywhere (in a good way)
Have fun with this one by getting covered in sand. You can make sand angels or get dirty by burying someone in the sand (let them win!). There are endless possibilities; you do not want to limit yourself here.
Go for a walk/hike/run/bike ride along the beach
Beaches are the perfect place to go for a walk or run, because not only is it flat, but there is also an amazing view. Make sure to bring along your pair of comfy sneakers and drink lots of water.
Get a massage
Who doesn’t want a massage? Getting one on the beach sounds incredibly relaxing and zen – what could be better than that? You can either go out and pay for a professional massage or just take off your shoes and rub your own feet. It might seem weird at first, but trust me: everyone does it!
Build sandcastles (or towers)
Build something as high as you can or make all sorts of different shapes like animals or pyramids. If you don’t have a bucket, just use a pile of sand and then shape it into something. Make sure to take a picture after you’re done!
Look for seashells
Some people just walk along the water’s edge looking out for sea creatures like starfish and octopuses (or is it octopi?). This shell collecting can either be easy or hard depending on how much you want to gather; it may even turn into an all-day activity if there are lots of shells around.
Who doesn’t like roasting marshmallows over a burning wood fire? If you do not know how to make one, never fear: there might be someone else at the beach who knows how to make one! If not, you can always ask around or look it up online.
Watch the sunset
Who doesn’t love watching a shiny fiery ball slowly sink behind the horizon? It is relaxing and zen-like to watch something so gorgeous every day. Some people may bring along snacks to have while they wait for the sun to lower itself.
Your beach bucket list should include all these activities and more! Having fun on the beach is easy, and if you do not know what to do, you can check out these suggestions.
