7 Fun Beach Party Games and Activities
Beach party games are a fantastic way to enjoy a day by the sea. Here are a few beach party games to add to your fun!
Beach party games are all about sand, surf, and day long soaking of the sun. Hitting the silver sand beach is one of the best things to do with friends on the weekend. Partying until the sun rises over the horizon and waking up, as the sun hits the sack over the dark blues skies into the ocean’s belly, is one of the best beach party activities.
For more fun and excitement at your beach party, consider adding a few games to play. Party games make it easy to involve everyone in the fun and can appeal to people of all ages and abilities. Games are not only fun to play but can be amusing to watch as well. Here are a few beach party games that can help you full entertainment with your friends.
Beach Party Games:
Water-balloons and beach party games go hand in hand, especially in this instance. Players pair off, and are given one full water balloon each. Partners must face each other, starting out by standing 2 feet apart. Players must throw and attempt to catch the water balloon, taking one step backwards each time they catch it. Once a pair’s water-balloon is dropped or bursts, they must exit the game. The last pair standing are the winners of this beach party game.
Fruit-Legged Beach Relay
At a beach party, games like this one can give everyone plenty of laughs. Players split into two equal teams, with a piece of fruit being given to each player. A bucket for each team is placed down the beach. The object of this beach party game is for team members to take turns shuffling down the beach one at a time with their piece of fruit wedged between their thighs, run back up the beach and tag the next person in line. The first team to place all their fruit in their bucket and return to the starting line is the winner of this beach party game.
When the tide is out, a sandy beach is the perfect canvas for an exciting game of Pictionary. Give this classic game a summery twist with words like firework, crab, and watermelon. Once the correct guess has been made, wait for the waves to clear the “board” and start the next round.
Beach volleyball is similar to volleyball. So, there are no explanations required here. Hire a volleyball and a net and game on!
Beach Ball Relay
Begin this game by setting up a starting point and a finish line around the party area. Divide the players into two teams and have both teams stand a few feet apart behind the starting point. Hand the first players of both teams a beach ball and have them place the ball between their legs. When you say “Go,” the first players race to the finish line at the opposite side of the play area, and then race back to their teams. If a player drops the beach ball, he has to start over from the beginning. The game ends when one team;the winning team; finishes the race before its opponents.
Do Beach Yoga
Take a meditative moment and do yoga to the sound of the waves. To avoid getting super sandy, stick with standing poses like Triangle Pose, Half Moon, or Warrior Pose.
Musical Beach Towels
Give your adult party guests a chance to dance around like children by playing this game. Begin by placing a line of towels on the sand, enough so you have enough for every player minus one. Have the players surround the beach towels and turn on some surfer music. The partiers then dance around the beach towels, one in front of the other. At a random moment, turn the music off. The players all have to hop on to one of the beach towels to stay in the game. Any player left out gets eliminated. After every round, take away a beach towel. Continue for several rounds until only one player remains, winning the game.
