If you are lucky enough to live near the ocean or are taking a vacation by the coast then with a little planning you can have a perfect beach day. Sometimes people forget how many fun activities you can do by the beach. You don’t just have to lie on a towel and nap under instant canopies to enjoy the ocean.
If you like being in the water then you can bring a swimsuit and play in the waves with your kids. It can be a lot of fun to try boogie boarding or surfing if you have a wetsuit and a board. If you have never tried surfing before you can take a lesson and stand up for the first time with an instructor helping you. Boogie boarding is a little easier and you can probably figure out how to do it on your own.
For those who are less adventurous you can read a book underneath your shade canopy or help your kids build sandcastles on the shore. It is a good idea to bring enough beach supplies so you will feel comfortable and prepared when you are taking a break from different activities.
Most beaches have plenty of different options for renting bikes or skates if you want to do something active that everyone can do together. Make sure to be safe and wear helmets especially if you have young children that want to try it too. Riding a bike or skating can be a good activity when the sun is going down and it is too cold to swim. You won’t need as much protection from your pop-up canopy in the evening so you are free to roam around the bike paths and explore. There are lots of fun ways to enjoy the beach and it has a lot to offer for excitement or relaxation. Connect on Facebook with Quikshade Canopies.
