Ideas for a Fun Beach Vacation

Here are a few fun and simple ideas on how to have a great time on your next beachfront vacation.

  • Have a bonfire on the beach and roast marshmallows.
  • Prepare a fun dinner at sunset by the beach bonfire where everyone has to dress up like a pirate, including all adults. Bring bits and bobs of items from home in red, black and white to fashion pirate garb.
  •  Follow a set of foot prints in the sand as long as you can.
  • Have a sandcastle building contest.
  • Bury treasure in the sand and make a treasure map for kids to follow. You can bury the treasure with “x marks the spot” with beach stones.
  • Paint beach rocks.
  • Feed seagulls.
  • Go on a scavenger hunt for different kinds of shells and different colored beach rocks.
  • Give each person a day where they have to decide the menu and the activity or game of the day.
  • Rent beach cruisers, decorate them and ride to the harbor for an ice cream treat.
  • Fish from the pier. Better yet fish from your own beach backyard.
  • Put up a tent on your private beach.
  • Take a flashlight out on the beach at night and look for treasures.
  • Spend an entire day without using the word “No”- its harder than you think!
  • Let the kids create one dinner meal. If they decide to have pizza with m and m’s and candy  for a  topping, thats great. You will survive and they will remember that dinner for the rest of their lives.
  • Put away the cell phones and talk.
  • At bonfire each day, have everyone bring a trinket or souvenir from what they did that day. Go around the fire ring and share with everyone what they did. It gets everyone talking and laughing.
  • Try and count the grains of sand in just one teaspoon of sand.
    All of us at hope you have a wonderful beachfront vacation and take home a sand bucket filled with great memories! Logan and Kim
