Camping at the beach is truly Romantic. People have always
been drawn to the water. Water represents life. Use this
instinct to your advantage!
There are THREE things to remember when any spending time
on the beach…
1) Sun: Bring
sunscreen and use it! Every trip to the beach requires
protection from the sun. Protect your eyes from the sun
with sunglasses. Hats are also a good idea to protect
your face, neck and ears. If you’re spending several hours
at the beach find a shady spot or make your own shade.
This will help you to preserve your energy. You need energy
2) Water: Don’t
drown! Always ask if the beach is safe for swimming. Also,
stay hydrated while at the beach. The sun will make you
thirsty and it will be tempting to drink alcohol while
lying on the sand. That is fine! However, the reflection
of the sun on the sand and water will quickly dehydrate
you. Keep drinking water!
3) Wind: Prepare
for the wind! Always have a wind-breaker, jacket or blanket
ready. The beach can quickly become inhabitable when a
strong wind kicks up. Have a backup plan! This plan should
include a place away from the wind and cold. If you are
using a tent on the beach, consider placing the tent in
a protected area.
Beach Fire: Fire
and Water unite! Some of my BEST memories are associated
with beach fires. They are awesome and Romantic in every
way.... Always make a beach fire if you can. Calm summer
nights are my favorite time for a beach fire.
Bring a game to the beach! This opportunity for physical
activity and competition should NOT be missed. Beach games
will add energy to your relaxing day. There are many options...
My favorite beach games include Frisbee, Bocce Ball and
Cliché as it may seem, walking down the beach is Romantic!
I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t enjoy a stroll down
the waterline. It doesn’t matter the time of day or night.
Go barefoot! Don’t talk too much. Let Nature do the talking.
Soak up the free therapy. Flirt softly - hold hands, touch
your partner’s hair and smile! These are the best times…
are usually windy. Use the wind to your advantage by flying
a kite. You only need ONE kite between you and your partner.
Take turns flying! I recommend the kites with the double
handles. They are exciting and challenging to fly. They
offer hours of entertainment. If you have a kite with
the double handles you will actually need two people.
The job of the second person is to pick up the kite when
it falls and untangle the strings. If you’re new to kite
flying be sure to find a stretch of beach that has lots
you’re East coast facing then try catching the sunrise.
I’ve only seen a few ocean sunrises (usually after all-nighters).
They were simply AMAZING! I can’t think of a more Romantic
way to start (or end) the day.
Sunsets: A sunset
over the ocean is magic! Plan your evening around it.
Sunsets are really only good if the day is clear or partially
cloudy. If there is a thick wall of clouds you’ll see
nothing! It’s always nice to settle in a few minutes before
the ball drops. Bring a blanket, bottle of wine and an
appetizer! Remember the best part of the sunset is the
half hour after the sun is gone. This is when the sky
Beaches with rocky areas are often BEST for this activity.
Explore the tide-pools during the low tide. Tide-pools
can be FULL of interesting things to watch and touch.
Look for crabs, starfish, seashells, fish, sea urchins
and sea cucumbers. Tide-pooling is also a good time to
find a nice seashell or rock (something NOT living) for
a souvenir representing your Romantic Getaway.
Sex on the Beach
This is a classic romantic fantasy that must be done
whenever possible! There is something about an orgasm
at the edge of the world. Of course, there are a few potential
hazards to consider when having sex on the beach...
- Sand: If you’ve
spent anytime at the beach you know sand can get everywhere.
Throw down a barrier between you and the sand. This
could be a towel, blanket, sarong or a jacket. Woman
on top is always a good option for beach sex.
REMEMBER: To help flush out sand (and anything else)
doctors recommended that women take a pee afterward.
The process of squatting and peeing contracts the vagina
walls and helps squeeze out that unwanted stuff.
- Surf: Beware
the rouge wave! Pick a spot that is above the high-tide
mark. The tide changes from high to low every six hours.
It can be difficult to tell which way the water is moving.
To stay safe it’s best to situate yourself on a dry
place that is not at the lowest area of the beach. Water
can RUSH over the low spots in just seconds!
I HATE sand fleas! The little bastards bite. Some of
the most beautiful beaches in the world have these pests.
They are usually most active around sunset, which is
a bummer. If you experience bites be sure to spray your
feet and legs with bug spray. Try using a large towel
or blanket for maximum protection. Some beaches have
crabs (the big ones with pinchers). Depending on the
season, a vacant beach can quickly become overrun by
scampering crabs. This can be a little creepy. Keep
your eyes open!
Great sex on the beach is SPECIAL because it takes the prefect
set of circumstances. Always keep yourself aware of your
situation. Sometimes you can luck into the ideal moment.
Stay ready for the possibility and it will happen!
