The Beach- Activities For Everyone

Updated on December 14, 2014

A Day At The Beach !

Are you a lover of the beach for swimming surfing or even just walking along the edge of the water ?

For many of us a trip to the beach is something we really look forward to and have a great day out while there catching a wave with our boogie board ,maybe a bit of rock climbing , spotting the crabs as they attempt to get out of our sight.

As kids we grab our buckets & spades so we can make sandcastles or collect small fish from the rock pools while Mom & Dad sit back ,relax & watch us contentedly

When we were younger we used to love going to Brighton beach near Christchurch in the South Island with Mum & Dad.

I think it was there we would go pippying / cock ling at low tide! Then enjoy a feast at home !

There are so many activities that can be enjoyed at the beach for all ages .

The Beach !

My Favourite Beach Activities

I am crazy about snorkeling at the moment whenever we get a chance to get in the water..

We were just away down south & even tho it is summer here & 42 degrees up this way down in Walpole its about 22 degrees & rains a lot so even though we went to some nice beaches we didn't snorkel .

We should get to do a lot of snorkelling up the coast soon!

I love it as its like another world when you put your head down under the water & see the life down there ! I loved swimming with the big blue fish and various coloured fish, sting rays etc !

Rock Climbing is fun & exploring the little rock pools where you see crabs scurrying around like they are on a mission ! It is especially fun for children discovering new things!

Boogie boarding when you have catch right waves into the shore is great fun and uses a lot of energy when the waves are right for it !

      Thats a very good hub Freecampingaussie. I love going to the beach but not on weekends because i live in miami and you will know that miami beaches are the most popular.

      At weekends the beach if so crouded that it's very difficult to find a place to sit. Still i enjoy surfing. Thanks for this hubs:)
