Have you been wanting to spend a day at the beach with your family but the thought of repeating the same old routine of swimming and tanning has put you off the idea completely. Worry not because the beach is always filled with an endless array of activities for you and your family to try. There is so much you can try (maybe, even for the first time), so much so that an entire day might not be enough. You can enjoy activities on the sand, the sea or you can lie back and enjoy the view from underneath your umbrella. With a little bit of planning and research, you can definitely enjoy your family’s day out at the beach without ever running out of things to do:
Explore the seas
If you think you’ve had your fill of activities at the beach but still want to enjoy the ocean, you can always hire Sydney harbour charters and set sail to explore nearby coastal and island destinations. It will also be the ideal getaway from the crowded beaches and an opportunity to discover new landscapes. You can take a picnic with you and spend the day exploring the island. Talk about an adventure! You can also go whale watching or venture underwater by scuba diving, provided that you have the necessary gear and experience.
Build a sandcastle and collect sea shells
Building sandcastles and sand sculptures are a great group activity and you can get your entire family to join in Sydney fishing charters. It’s a very simple and elaborate activity but it’s always so much fun to build one. You barely need any special tools to make one, as long as you have sand and water, but a few simple cups and pails will definitely make things easier by helping you carry the sand and water to shape your creation. Don’t forget to build a moat around your castle once you’re done so as to protect it from waves and rising tides that will wash your castle away. Collecting sea shells is another great activity for both kids and adults. While it’s a no brainer, you’d want to bring a jar or container to collect all the sea shells you find. You can use your sea shells on the sandcastle as décor or even take some back home for DIY craft projects.
Bonfire and s’mores
If you’re planning on spending the night by the beach, you can end the night with a bonfire. You can end the day on a memorable note by getting everyone to sit around and share jokes and stories. Once you have the fire going, you can make some s’mores to enjoy while you share life stories. And yes there is no doubt that your kids will enjoy this classic bonfire treat more than everyone else.
