My Personal Beach Vacation Experience

A young guy who does not bother to visit beach is "takkhis". Actually I go to beach during summer than in winter. Many people never think of going to beach during winter but I like to go there at that time. I don't live near beach though I have a number of experiences about beach vacation. I think those who live near beach have lots of fun in summer. Sometimes I go to beach with many friends, sometimes with my family and sometimes alone. I have many beach vacation experiences that I am going to express here as beach vacation tips.

So far I guess, you have read some articles on how to celebrate a beach vacation when it is raining, the best beaches you must visit before you die, the best gift for beach lover, top 10 beaches in Asia, best beach vacation guides, Top 10 beach vacation tips and ideas, best beaches to visit in USA or else but today I have only a topic here which would help you to know how you can enjoy every moments when you stay at the beach.

Do you know why I am going to write this lens? I was thinking couple of days ago that since summer just arrived I think this is the proper time to share my beach holiday experiences and some tips how you can enjoy a beach vacation with all. Not all the time I have had great beach holidays. I faced some problems and that made my beach holiday unpleasant.

Initial Tips on How to enjoy a Beach Vacation

Tip 1: Choose a Day When Everyone is Free From Work

Every student waits for summer vacation. I used to wait and count the days in the past. Summer vacation means a lot to me even now when I am not a student anymore. I am a graduated now. It is good news for me, no classes or homework. To enjoy a beach vacation in summer you have to select or choose a beautiful day or date when your friends or your all family members are free from work.

What if I tell you to choose a weekend where most of you are off from work? Choose a Saturday or Sunday and organize everything you need before going to the beach. If you have parents then try to understand your parents' work days and request them to go to beach on the weekend only. As a result you will have time to spend all the day on the beach, that's awesome! We had a problem where we already have planned to go to the beach at a certain date but only for my father's unexpected official meeting we had to cancel our beach vacation. So don't forget to be sure that everyone is free from work.

If you wish to visit beautiful beaches outside your country then it is obvious that you need at least a week to enjoy the beach holiday. Your parents need leave from office in case you want to go to a beach which is located outside your country. I suggest you to call a meeting with all your family members and take a wise decision selecting a proper time and date.

A Whole Family Beach Vacation Costume Ideas

As this lens is about beach vacation so you must be prepared for going to beach. You know what costumes you would like to wear during the time you spend at the beach. Here I have some costume ideas here for you:

Mother, Daughter, Girlfriend: She needs bikini swimsuits, towels, women t-shirts, hats

Father, Son, Boyfriend: He needs swim shorts, trunks, towels, t-shirts, hats

Alki'i Men's Boardshorts - Solid Colors Team USA, Large, Stone

Tip 2: Pack Things at Home and Find a Way How do you Want to Reach to the Beach

Once you have selected a specific date when you think you would spend for a day or even a week then start packing things. If you have kids with you then try to take their favorite foods and water. Always take extra costumes with you when you go to beach. You are not going to stay at the beach for 24 hours so except taking swimsuits you have to take other costumes. If you want to visit some beaches that are located in other country then you have to get a visa. If everything is fine then it is time for booking plane tickets and a hotel room.

If you are not going to have a beach vacation outside your home country then you don't have to manage visa but still you have choose how would you go to the beach city. You can go there by your own car, bus, train and on air. Check your car's fuel and engine and start your journey. While you drive a car, be careful and no need to drive fast. You have enough time that's for why you are heading to the beach for having fun with all. It would be nice to all of you if you listen to music on the way to the beach. Enjoy you beach vacation!

I am thinking to go to beach with my motorcycle this year. I would not go alone though, my other friends would take their own motorcycles as well. I hope we would have fun!

Tip 3: Avoid Bad Weather

This is the number 3 tip which I see as one of the important tips of all time in case you want to have a great beach holiday. Never think of going to beach if the weather is bad. Turn the radio on or switch the TV on and get the latest updated weather reports. I would suggest you to go to beach once you see the weather report says everything is fine and it is a sunny day then be prepared for having a nice beach holiday. It is time to share my own experience why I brought this tip to you. Well, I read newspaper, watch TV, and listen to radio, read articles online thus how I found awful news that many people die from cyclone, tsunami, and tornado while staying near beach. So Avoid Bad Weather!

Tip 4: Take all the Useful Necessary Beach Stuffs

Do you know the useful beach accessories you need at the beach? They could be a beach umbrella, chair; sunglasses, football (as sport item) or hat but you know what thing you must need when you go to the beach. So it is all up to you which one you prefer most. If you think a beach chair is must-have item for you then don't forget to take it with you. You will know why I am telling all these when you read my experience. Now I am going to share a personal story on this tip.

One day I decided to go to the beach with some of my friends and we planned to play football over there, that was the main reason I wanted to go to beach with all. We all gathered in a place and started our journey by bus. I don't live near beach, so to reach at the beach we had to take almost 2 hours. We took our all necessary things with us such as umbrellas, outdoor big blanket, foods and water but we fail to take a football. Was it possible for us to go back to home and take a football? It was not possible because of the distance between our homes and the beach. Besides, there was no shop where you could buy a football. I earlier told you we planned to play football on that beach holiday but forgot to bring that at the beach! We could not enjoy that beach holiday much only for that!

Useful things or items you may need for a beach vacation

I know you would not ignore these five useful things to take with you when you go to beach with family or friends. Indeed all these items are important to you. Apart from these there are many useful things you might consider in case you have a beach vacation.

Fun and Interesting Tips on How to enjoy a beach Vacation

Tip 5: Fly a Kite

It is more than a great beach holiday idea that I ever thought. I would say this as one of my favorite things that I love to do at the beach. Do you enjoy flying kite at the beach? Don't think that I only like or enjoy this idea a the beach but I also fly kite in the open field too. You can try this idea; hopefully you would enjoy your beach holiday by doing so. From adult to kids all would enjoy this idea. If you really wish to fly kite at the beach then make some personalize kites or if you don't how to make one then just buy it from shop. There are plenty of shops that sell this, you better find amazing beautiful kites from online store.

My Beach Photography - Coconut Tree at The Beach

Here you see a coconut tree that I captured last year when I went to beach. It was a lovely day and was finding taking something unique photo. I saw a coconut tree and thought it would not be bad if I take a picture of this beautiful coconut tree. can enjoy drinking green coconut water at the beach, I love it. I will show you another beach photo that I took, just wait and keep reading.

Tip 6: Surfing

Surfing is a great way to enjoy your beach holiday. You don't have to be a professional or expert surfer but it is always a plus point if you know some of its stuffs. I am not an expert surfer but still I know how to surf a bit. I learned it from my uncle; he is such a nice person that one day he told me he would like to teach me how to surf in the sea. I am thankful to him that I learned valuable lessons from him. Still I am not a good surfer, I practice it a lot when I spend my time at the beach. Surfing on the sea is fun and I don't recommend this for older but for young people. Collect a surfboard and have fun on the beach!

Tip 7: Organize a Picnic Party or Just a Beach Party

Picnic party or a normal party at the beach is a great idea. I always like outdoor picnic party. Having a picnic party or just a party at the beach would not only help you to enjoy your beach vacation but also help you to have a memorable time with all. You may invite your friends, relatives to join with your family.

What can you do on a beach party?

1) Singing

2) Gossiping

3) Storytelling

4) Acting

5) Eating

6) Cooking

Every year in summer when I go to beach I try to organize a picnic party especially with my friends but I always participate in a picnic party which is organized by my parents. Remember one thing that, to have a great picnic party you need to have a big beach umbrella and of course a big outdoor blanket. You must think what type of food you would serve there for others so take time while preparing the foods.

It keeps your foods warm! If you wish to go to the beach with homemade food then you need this Steel Food Jar. Remember homemade foods are better and healthy than fast foods.


Tip 8: Play Games

I play various games with my friends on the beach such as football, volleyball and baseball. If you go to the beach with many friends then you have an opportunity to play a football match. Form two teams based on the number of players and It is better to have a football referee. Choose a friend who does not like to pay it but would enjoy having a referee role. I hope you will have a great match at the beach. We played such way many times. Now I am going to ask you a question, my question is - have you ever played a fun family game on the beach? This is one of the great ways to enjoy your beach holiday. There are many fun family games we can play with all. Your kids would definitely like to pass their times playing with sands, football, baseball.

Tip 9: Walk and Run on the Beach

Walking or running is a great exercise. I walk on the beach and run with my dog if possible. I really enjoy walking and running at the beach. Do you like it? Back in two years ago from now, I had a beach holiday with my family for two days, so I decided to take my dog with me over there. At that time we stayed a night at a hotel near beach. I walked and ran with my dog in the morning that time and I really enjoyed that. You don't have to have a dog with you better walk with your lover, kids, and parents. I bet you would enjoy your time. It is really nice walking along the beach. While walking on the beach you have an opportunity to explore many things.

Tip 10: Take Picture of Beach nature

I am a non professional photographer. I like to take photos of many objects. I do think it is one of my best hobbies of my life. I know many of you have this hobby too. Have you ever been to beach only to take some photos of beach nature? You can take photo of white sandy beach, the blue sea, sun set and rise, ships and of course your own picture. Don't you think it would a great idea by which you can enjoy your beach holiday? I do think it would a beat idea for you all. To do so you have to have a nice camera with you and charge it fully before you go to beach.

Tip 11: Collect Seashell

When I was a kid my mother one day had to go to a place for an official meeting. The meeting had taken place near a beach hotel. She got time to visit the beach and walked along the beach. Do you know what she brought for me at home from the beach? She collected seashells for me to show actually where she had been when I stayed alone for few days with my father. I was surprised to see those seashells and my mother put them in our showcase box. You can do the same thing for your kids. There are lots of stuffs you can find on the beach, so explore them and enjoy your beach holiday!

Tip 12: Fun Water Sports Rides

Jet Skiing, Waterskiing, Barefoot Skiing, Kayaking, Wakeboarding, Sailing, Rowing

In modern time, I think you all know about some water fun sports rides. Going to beach is fun and it would be very much fun if you do something unique or extraordinary thing such as Jet Skiing, Barefoot Skiing, Waterskiing, Sailing, Rowing, Wakeboarding, Kayaking in the sea. You can get a Jet Ski from the beach authority and you have to pay for it. However, you would definitely like to enjoy your beach holiday riding a jet ski. I did ride a jet ski and had so much fun, I can't express in words! You will know once you ride. Please wear a lifejacket and be careful. Don't go far away from the sea beach.

Tip 13: Cleanup the Beach

Last year I did this task, I mean cleaning up the beach so that we can save our beach environment. This idea is actually great and I am proud of being a person who takes care of beach environment. Many people go to beach each and every year; they eat foods and throw thrashes around beach. So you have to take action for it if you want to see a nice looking beach. Take a garbage bag and collect all the trashes in there. Thus how you can clean a beach up and save our planet from danger. I don't know whether you would enjoy a beach holiday by doing this but I do and I did enjoy my beach holiday doing this last year. If you don't like this idea, at least don't throw away any foods, plastic bags, bottle. Just take a garbage bag with you and put all the thrashes when you stay at the beach. Later on the way back to home or hotel just throw in a dustbin. Please never pollute our environment!

Tip 14: Scuba Diving

I think you are familiar with Scuba diving. I enjoy it since I can explore undersea or underwater creatures. It would be a great experience for you if you try this once. Don't you want to see beautiful undersea creatures such small fishes, corals, tortoise, crab and many more? I know some people here do it as hobby. Do you see this as your hobby? Scuba diving could be recreational diving for you if you really want to enjoy your time at the beach or want to have a great beach holiday. There are scuba driver who give opportunity to explore underwater life.

Tip 15: Fishing

Not all beaches allow you fishing opportunity but some would allow you to do that. So you have to find a beach where you are allowed to fish legally. If your main intention is to fish during a beach vacation then you must go to a beach which offers you to fish without having any trouble. You have to know whether any particular beaches allow you to do fishing. I don't fish much but I think it is a great way to enjoy your beach vacation or holiday. My friends really like this activity when they go to beach and stay there for a day.

My Beach Photography - Seashell

Look at this seashell, it is actually a snail that I found when I was walking along the beach. I was lucky I had the camera with me. I am glad I took some beach nature pictures than usual one like only taking sandy beach or like that. Here I wanted to share only unique photos that I took during my Beach vacation.

Image credit: takkhis

Tip 16: Watch the Sunrise and the Sunset

You can start your beach vacation or holiday watching the Sunrise and also can end up your beach holiday seeing the Sunset. What a great idea is this! It is actually amazing way to start your beach vacation while on the other hand it is a great way to say goodbye the beach. I particularity love this idea and I really enjoy watching sunrise and sunset, don't you like it? When you watch sunrise and sunset you can take outstanding photographs of such beautiful nature. Capture those moment with your camera, I know you would not bother to do so. I watch sunrise and sunset with all of my family members when we go to beach together. Try to wake up early in the morning if you really wish to watch sun rise. Not every beach has great spot to see both of these; some beaches are famous for watching sunset while some are great for watching sunrise.

Tip 17: Build sand sculptures and sandcastles

Most of the beaches are sandy all over the world except some beaches. Building a sandcastle is quite easy if you know how to make one. You get a main ingredient for creating sandcastles or sand sculptures. Are you ready now for building a nice medieval style castle or any type including ancient and modern? Before creating sand sculptures or sandcastles you need to have useful handy tools. So take all those tools with you when you go to beach. I did make a sandcastle with the help of my friends but I should not tell you how it was, it was awful because I was amateur making sandcastle. Actually your kids would like to make sandcastle with you and they would enjoy whole time making sandcastle with you.

Tip 18: Sunbathe

When do you like to sunbathe? I think you prefer in the morning when sun is not that much hot. Those who want to tan their body skin can go to a beach in the early morning. That's the proper time. Generally, people go to beach for one main reason that is sunbathing. Do you know the benefits of sunbathe? In general we think sunbathing means to tan our skin but it also provides you Vitamin D, if you have insomnia then it will help you to sleep at night, it will increase your blood circulation. So you see the benefits here. Sunbathing is very healthy for our body. My mother likes to sunbathe during the time we spend at the beach. She always say she enjoys it much. I think you would enjoy your whole beach vacation sunbathing on the beach.

Tip 19: Swim

I am a good swimmer; I must say this to you. What about you? If you are not a good swimmer then this tip or idea is not for you. Please avoid this idea, alright! You don't have to swim in the sea but you still can swim if you wear a lifejacket. Swim with the one who knows how to swim well at that time. It is a great idea to enjoy your beach holiday. Just don't take any risk. Your life is important. However, I swim when I go to beach, it is my passion. I don't swim during winter in the sea because the water is very cold and it does not let me swim. Swimming is great only in summer when water is a bit warm. Wear a swimsuit which is very comfortable for you and then explore underwater creatures such as starfish, corals, seashells.

Tip 20: Drawing and Painting

Do you draw something on a sandy beach with your fingers instead of brush or pen? You don't need to have a white paper because your have a big paper that is the sandy beach. Draw anything you want with your kids. You can draw a heart and show it to your lover!

Apart from this there is other way to draw which is known as normal drawing style that artists follow like painting with white paper, colorful pens and brush. They paint blue sky, blue sea, sea birds, waves, coconut tree and sandy beach while staying at the beach. When I Was a kid, I used to draw people's face, animal, house, green fields, mountain and etc. I do love scathing on a white paper with a pencil. If you are an artist then you can easily draw picture of beach nature and thus how you can enjoy your beach holiday. Though, your kids would like to draw anything they want sitting on beach chair at the beach. It is just a great way to pass their time.

A Nice Big Beach Bag

Your wife, mother or girlfriend must need to have a beach bag. She would carry everything she needs for your family such as foods, water bottle, books, kids toy, towels and many more. My mom has some beach bags, they are big enough and she once told me it is great to have a big one than smaller beach bag.

Sand-Away Beach Bag ?
Sand-Away Beach Bag ?

Are you curious of this bag? It is a big beach bag and perfect bag for you.


Tip 21: Horse Ride

I have seen many times on TV that in some countries the beaches are nice with some unique features such as horse riding facility. Do you have such experience when you had a horse ride at the beach? I have this experience when I was 10 years old guy. Actually that was the first time I did ever ride on horseback! I was very excited and I still remember how much fun I had on that day. Truly I enjoyed that beach vacation or holiday with all.

Tip 22: Boat Trip

Have you ever had a boat trip on the sea? It is very adventurous and exciting to you, right? Back in 2010 I had one boat trip with all of my family members. When you have this type of opportunity to have fun you can do multiple fun things such as fishing, taking picture of coastal area, scuba diving, a picnic party and many more. You can touch sea water with your two hands, that amazing! If you have kids with you on a boat trip then be watchful to them and take sufficient amount of foods and water with you. Don't forget to wear lifejacket vest if you can't swim. I do love watching sea birds and the waves while having a boat trip. Take a binocular and explore everything from boat. Have fun and enjoy your beach vacation having a nice boat trip.

Tip 23: Do Meditation, Yoga, Physical exercise

I did it a number of times when visited beach. Meditation would help you to be relaxed. Do you know the proper style how to do meditation? I learned it from our Buddhist monks. I once was a short period of monk, stayed at a Buddhist temple for a week. At that time, I did meditation twice in a day. I used to wake up 3:00AM every morning and go to sleep around 10:00PM. Our meditation schedule was fixed, from 3:30AM to 5:00AM and in the evening from 7:00PM to 9:30PM. However, what I want tell now is - you can truly enjoy a beach holiday by doing meditation. It would be boring to you doing meditation for an hour, so you don't need to meditate for so long rather you do it for 15 to 20 minutes. Apart from this you can do Yoga practice and do some physical exercises.

Tip 24: Read Books

I am a bookworm! Read any type of books and like to collect classic books. I really enjoy a beach holiday when I read a book lying on a sandy ground or on a beach chair. You would definitely like this idea if you like reading books. I am 100% sure about it. I go to beach for several reasons, sometimes only for playing football or just for surfing but I always take a book with me whenever I visit a beach. I can’t play football for a long time so when I take a rest I don’t bother to read some pages of a book. It is actually amazing way to enjoy your beach vacation.

Tip 25: Splash Sea Water and Let the Waves Wash Over You

This is my last fun and interesting tip and idea that I want to share with you. This idea is actually for your little kids who would like to splash in the sea water with you. As parents you can do it too, just help them to enjoy their beach vacation.

Stand up and let the waves wash over to you; it is really fun idea if you really want to enjoy a beach vacation at the beach. Please be careful of your kids, be safe always and have lots of fun.

It is great idea for a couple as well, you two can splash sea water each other and then run!

Final Tips on How to enjoy a Beach Vacation

Tip 26: Travel Around the Beach City where the Beach is Located

Beach vacation does not mean staying or going to beach only but it also refers you to visit beautiful, historical places around the city where the beach is located. Suppose you are now on the beach of Crimea, Ukraine, the one thing you can do is - visit Crimea's famous castles, parks, museums and many more. If you go to Japan for a beach vacation to Amami-Oshima beach which is located in Kyushu then don't forget to visit its famous places. I don't want to miss visiting interesting places that are situated near beach so I go there and have fun just before leaving the beach city. Enjoy your beach vacation visiting at least one historical or famous popular tourist spot.

Tip 27: Shopping

Whether you are alone or with family and friends you have to go for a shopping especially when you go to a beach vacation outside your country. I would like to buy something from Florida for my friends and my family members when I visit Miami Beach. I do have a dream to visit Florida's beaches someday; I heard they are very beautiful. Maybe you are planning to go to some awesome Asian beaches such as in Japan, Korea, Thailand, Philippine, Malaysia, and China. One thing I want to tell you that please collect their traditional stuffs, it could be a Thai Parasol, Japanese doll, Chinese hand fan and many more. Actually my mom likes to collect home décor stuffs from different shops and she buys when she explores a new thing which might be useful for her and for our home decoration.

Tip 28: Go to a Restaurant and Eat seafood

Do you like having seafood? If you ask this question to me then I would say "Yes I like having seafood". It is one of the great ways to enjoy your beach vacation. Especially I like having shrimp and crab. You can find some restaurants near beach and it is very easy to order seafood. Just look at the menu at first and choose what type of seafood you would like to have. Once you order your food, just wait for a while and enjoy looking at the beach scenery until your food is ready to eat. Enjoy!

Tip 29: Pack the Things and Leave for Home

Now it is time for packing things and get ready for leaving the beach and the city. If you stay in a hotel don't forget to pack all the things you brought from home. Take the car key with you and of course the cell phone. If you are a foreign traveler then check the plane ticket and the passport. I once forgot to take my cell phone; I left it in the hotel room where we stayed for two nights. Do you know how did I get back my cell phone? It was easy though, when we were about to get in a taxi I realized I left my cell phone and Immediately I informed it to hotel reservation authority and they managed the rest of the thing. If you have your own car with you then be sure that your car has enough oil.

      I live by the sea but it's generally too cold to go in very far. I love the beach in warmer countries but litter has spoiled a beach for me. I wish people would clear up their litter as you advise.
