When it comes to spending time together as a couple, there is nothing like a romantic beach date. Whether it is a crowded family beach or a private slice of paradise, you are bound to have a lot of fun together and to create a positive relationship.
Now, how much fun you have depends on how you approach the date. Just lazing about all day will not be a memorable time. It is, therefore, essential that you come up with fun ideas about how to make your time together unique and enjoyable.
Here are seven romantic beach date ideas you could try out if you find yourself at a loss.
Build your first castle together
It is one of those things to do at the beach with your boyfriend that is perfect if both of you have a fun, childlike side. It is a great way to relive the good old days when you went to the beach with your family as a kid. It is also an awesome idea as you get to create something together that allows you to work on your bond.
You will need the following:
- Different-sized buckets or containers.
- If you want something elaborate, get a proper castle building kit.
- A good imagination.
Go skinny dipping
Skinny dipping is probably the most obvious of beach dates ideas for couples not afraid to live on the edge. The important thing is to ensure that you are both comfortable with doing it. You also need to ensure that you won’t get into trouble!
Here is how to do it:
- Find a beach that welcomes such free-spirited expression (that’s a nice way of saying nude beaches).
- Find a hidden beach not easily accessible to the public.
- Do it on a private beach.
- Wing it and hope you don’t get caught.
Have a beachside picnic
Having a picnic is, without a doubt, one of the most romantic things to do at the beach. It could be a full meal at noon while you watch other beach patrons and talk about life. Or you could make it a midnight affair enjoying some wine, and fancy snacks as the moonlight glistens over the water.
You will need the following:
- A nice location.
- A beach towel wide enough for the two of you and all your food.
- A picnic basket.
- Good food.
- A portable wastebasket because you don’t want to be littering.
- A source of light if it is a nighttime picnic.
Set up a bonfire when the sun goes down
This is a great romantic beach date idea, especially if you are thinking more along the lines of a group date. You can have the bonfire to keep you warm, toast some marshmallows, and enjoy each other’s company as you tell fun stories. It is a simple idea to execute, but one that will guarantee a lot of laughs and great memories.
Go fishing with your bare hands
You have probably never thought of fishing when considering what to do on a beach date. However, there are many beaches around the world that host shallow water fish.
Fishing would make a fun beach date, especially if you are ready to make utter fools of yourselves by trying to catch the fish by hand. There will be a lot of fun and laughter!
And if you are lucky, you could prepare your catch during your nighttime bonfire and have a nice beachside picnic. Boom! You’ve executed three of our date ideas in one.
Play some beach sports
If you and your beau love to keep active even when on your dates then one of the best beach date tips for you is to make it your very own Olympics every time you go to the beach. It allows you to spend time in a beautiful place doing what you both enjoy.
