Beach Treasure Hunt:

beach gamesTreasure hunts are usually a lot of work for the person hosting them but this beach version requires no effort. All you have to do is list some items like a pink seashell, a black pebble, seaweed, a bottle cap, a piece of rope, a feather, etc. and create teams of twos. Each team has to find and check off the list of items and bring them to the group, the team that brings the most items on the list wins. beach games

Beach Dodge Ball:

A main player is chosen and has to hit any other player with the ball. Once a player is hit they’re out. If anyone manages to grab the ball without being hit by the main player they become the main player and they get to hit other players.

Those out of the game can grab the ball if it comes near them and throw it at a standing player. If they manage to hit someone, they can stand up and get back into the game. Whoever is left is the winner.

Beach Ball Hot Potato:

Make a circle and pass the beach ball while playing music. When the music stops, the player holding the ball is out. The goal is to pass the ball as quickly as possible without dropping it. The last person left is the winner.

Beach Darts and Tic Tac Toe:

Sand Pictionary:

Divide yourselves into two teams. One team agrees on an item which they whisper to a member of the other team. That member will draw this item in the sand in 1 minute and his team has to try to guess what it is. Keep a score of 1 point for each round if the item is guessed right.

Beach Ball Balancing:

A super fun game that requires nothing but an inflated beach ball. Players are divided into twos, each team has to take a beachball from the start line to the finish line, decided at the beginning of the game, without actually holding the ball in their hands.

So they have to balance it between their heads or hold it between them back to back. Winners are the ones who get creative and get the ball to the finish line.

Bury A Friend or Build a Sand Snowman:
