Fun Games for Beach Lovers

T

he beach is a great place to relax and soak up some good vitamin D produced by the sun.  It is also a great place to create fun and exciting memories while spending quality time with friends and family. So if you’re headed to the beach this weekend, try out some of these exciting beach games listed below. 

Water Relay Race (Beach Style)

o play the water relay, you’ll need four small buckets filled to the top with water and two teams. Next, put four buckets full of water at the starting line, then divide players into two teams. On “Go,” the first racer on each team picks up two buckets and runs the obstacle course, trying not to spill the water. Continue with each player on the two teams until everyone gets a turn. The team with the most water left in their buckets wins. You can spice it up by adding a winner prize to make it more exciting.

Beach Musical Towel

usical Towel is similar to musical chairs.  The only difference is instead of using chairs, we use beach towels, and instead of sitting on chairs, we lie down on the towel. It is a fun and exciting game that can be enjoyed by both children and adults alike while getting your daily dose of vitamin D. Please don’t forget to apply sunscreen. 

Beach Tug of War

ug of war is a fun game. All you need are some rope or a long towel, mark the center of the towel basically with a piece of cloth, and the center of the sides with pulling limits. The team which successfully pulls off the center limit of the rope to their side has won the game. If the beach is not too crowded, then this is a really fun and exciting game to try.

Beach Limbo

hen was the last time you played some limbo?  Limbo is a popular game that originated as an event that took place at wakes (a social gathering associated with death, usually held before a funeral) in Trinidad. The aim is to pass forwards under a low bar without falling or touch the bar.

Beach Scavenger Hunt

E

veryone loves a good old beach treasure hunt, and the beach is the perfect location for true scavengers to really make some unusual finds. The sea and rock pools offer an endless array of strange but beautiful things, and the tides throw up a whole load of interesting stuff on the shores, ready for the pickings of keen beachcombers.  You can add your creative idea to it or add a theme, such as finding things beginning with a letter of the alphabet or finding the opposites like smooth and rough or hard or soft, etc.

Sand Hopscotch

opscotch is a popular hopping game that never gets old, and it’s fun to play on the beach by drawing a grid in the sand. It is better to draw your grid close to the water edge in the hardened sand. You can use rocks or shells for markers. 

Spikeball

S

pikeball is played between two teams and two players each. The only equipment you need to play the game is a ball, a miniature, high-tension trampoline roughly the size of a hula hoop. You can purchase an official Spikeball set or make your own if you want. The game starts when a player from one team serves the ball by spiking it onto the trampoline net, putting the ball into play. Each team is allowed to bounce the ball between them up to three times before the ball is required to hit the net again, transferring control to the opposing team.  Then you continue until one team either exceeds the three-hit limit or fails to hit the net, at which point the opposing team scores a point. It is a game that is highly enjoyed by teens and young adults.

n closing, playing fun games at the beach is a good way to relieve stress, which will make your body feel good naturally. After playing a game, your mood and brain functionality will boost. Beach games are a great way of exercising and improving your energy. And don’t forget your camera to capture these fun moments together as family and friends.
