The beach is a wonderful place for the family to chill at. Be it a picnic, a party or a short or long holiday – the beach is always the perfect spot. Here are some games that can be played at the beach.

Play a game of frisbee, either in pairs or by forming teams. See who can throw the frisbee the farthest or try to catch it in creative ways.
2. Beach volleyball:
Set up a net and play a friendly game of volleyball. Divide into teams and see who can score the most points. You can even create your own family tournament.
3. Sandcastle building contest:
Have a sandcastle-building contest. Divide into teams or build individual sandcastles and see who can create the most elaborate or unique design. Use buckets, shovels, and other beach toys to bring your creation to life.
4. Scavenger hunt:
Create a scavenger hunt list with items commonly found on the beach, like seashells, seaweed, smooth rocks, or even a piece of driftwood. Give everyone a copy of the list and see who can find all the items first.
Use empty water bottles and a medium-sized ball to play bowling. Set up the bottles in a triangle or a straight line, and take turns rolling the ball to knock down as many bottles as possible.
Draw a tic-tac-toe grid in the sand and use shells and rocks as markers. Take turns placing your chosen item to try and get three in a row.
Set up a limbo stick by using a towel or rope held by two people. Take turns bending backward and going under the stick without touching it. Lower the stick each round to make it more challenging!
8. Relay races:
Set up a relay race course on the beach with designated markers. Divide into teams and compete in events like running with a ball between your knees, hopping on one foot, or doing a crab walk. The team that finishes the relay first wins!
Grab a set of beach paddleball paddles and a lightweight ball. Play a game of paddleball with your family, see how many times you can rally back and forth without dropping the ball.
Write down different beach-related actions or objects on small pieces of paper. Take turns drawing a paper slip and acting it out without speaking, while the rest of the family guesses what it is. It can be lots of fun and laughter.
