Activities to Keep You Busy on the Beach

Most people flock to California for the sun and the sand. Families from near and far bond over sand castles, wave jumping and sea shell collections. That’s the beauty of the beach; it provides endless fun for all ages. If you’re looking for a few more ideas to keep busy, we’ve got you covered.


You may think this pertains strictly to adults, but let’s be honest, what kid doesn’t love to exert energy? Take advantage of their eagerness and let the good times roll! Enjoy yoga, running, stretching, squatting, or just swimming and let the kiddos tag right along.

Paint Rocks & Seashells

When the sun is high in the sky, it becomes tiresome to lather on your sunscreen. So, take a breather and find a shady spot where you can break out the paint. Gather up your finest rocks and seashells then spend a chunk of time decorating the goods. Your heart will soar as you witness loved ones’ creativity and laughter.

Sand Pictionary

Speaking of laughter, it’s a common occurrence during a solid game of Pictionary. But this isn’t your average game, when you’re drawing along the beach you can incorporate nature (rocks, sticks, leaves, etc.). We think you’ll really love the results.

Musical Towels

If you brought along the tunes, then it’s time to set up a game of musical towels. Exactly as it sounds, you’ll jump from one to the next until the tunes stop. Whoever can’t find their towel gets the boot – or should we say the sandal?

Shell Necklaces

When the day is coming to an end and you’re looking to wind down, make shell necklaces. Bring along some string and collect gifts from the beach. Not only is this fun, it provides you with memories and cherished jewelry.
