With the days getting warmer and warmer, one can’t help but find themselves by the beach. Be it with family or friends, there are quite a lot of things to do by the shore. If you’re not so sure what to do, here are some suggestions and quirky ideas if you’re up for it:
– Sunbathing. This is one of the most common ways to enjoy the beach. With little to no obstruction in the way, it’s not surprising a lot of individuals lie about and bask as much as they want under the sun. If you’re a tanning enthusiast and currently by the beach, you’ll want to lather some sunscreen and get your share of tan while you’re there.
– Beach volleyball or frisbee. If you’re a group of friends hoping to have some fun, bring a net and a volleyball or even a frisbee can work. These are more rigorous choices but add the fun factor. Why not do an impromptu competition? You’ll even burn off the extra calories from the heavy lunch you had earlier!
– Break a watermelon! While that does sound odd, it’s actually one of the common tradition for Japanese individuals by the beach. The game is you have to blindfold the one who has to break the watermelon. It’s somewhat like a grounded version of a piñata; and instead of candies, you’re treated to some serving of smashed fruit. While it may sound crude, it’s a good way to get a laugh out of anyone.
– Appreciate the marine life. Be it swimming or just watching some creatures waddled during low tide, if you’re a marine enthusiast this is one of the best things to do. Certain beaches boast a grand display of corals and marine life underwater while some sport a good set of rocks where crabs and even starfishes like to hide during the latter part of the day.
