Beach Fun Under The Sun

By: Philip Nicosia

It cannot be denied that many people love to vacation at the beach for the most part of their life. The beach is undoubtedly one of the most popular destinations for those wanting to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life and be close to nature. What could be more soothing than feeling the soft sand on your feet and bathing in seawater, which is actually therapeutic.

There are just so many things to do while hitting the beach apart from getting a tan while lying on the sand and taking a swim. You can opt for being just plain lazy or get more adventurous to give your body its needed energy boost. If you decide to be active while at the beach, the better because you can let out all that stress that have built up in your system after working hard in the office or even just at home looking after your kids.

Beach volleyball is one activity you can engage in that will surely exercise your whole body. You can either play one on one or by pairs. You will have a real workout with this sport while using your hands, head, eyes, legs and feet. The sand definitely provides a good way to tone your leg muscles and your feet as well. And with lesser clothes on your body, the better you are able to move.

Snorkeling is a great alternative if you wish to explore the creatures and plants underneath the sea. Apart from awesome views you will see even in the shallow parts of the sea, you will also be able to exercise your entire body and your lungs, too. If you are the more adventurous type who does not fear the deep sea, then scuba diving is for you.

Skiing and wind surfing are best if you’re one person who wants to feel the movement of the seawaters and the thrill of being able to literally stand on them. During these activities, you will also get to practice your balancing acts and feel the cool breeze hitting your body.

Parasailing is becoming a popular beach adventure, too. This is more thrilling as you get to fly like a kite pulled by a speedboat and you get to see the great views of land and water while up in the sky. You can either go solo or with a friend over 600 feet high above the waters. No experience is needed.

Another equally thrilling adventure is jetskiing either alone or with a companion. Being a fast-speed ride, it gives you the adrenalin rush like you’ve never had before. Originally made as stand-ups for just one person, the jetski has evolved into a two-seater watercraft.

The latest banana boat ride is best for groups and families who just want to have a fun and wet ride. This is also recommended for team building events. This inflatable raft in the shape of a banana can accommodate a maximum of six to eight people. Experience the excitement on the banana boat while it is being pulled by a speedboat.
