Beach Games Your Family Will Love

Who likes to play games at the beach?! I know it’s something my whole family loves to do and it’s actually a really great way to spend quality time together. When I was shopping for cool beach items, I discovered a ton of games, which is super exciting! I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the lookout for a fun game to add to our beach bag. Fun family beach games are important in our house, as they are a way to stay entertained and away from screens. These games are all family friendly and I hope you enjoy playing them this summer!

Ease to Bring

We’ve all been there, carrying a ton of things to the beach that we either don’t use or don’t really seem worth lugging out in the hot sand. Furthermore, easy transportation is key this summer! For instance, if you have a lot of help, bring the games that you need extra hands to carry! On the other hand, if there is already a ton of stuff to bring out, go for the games that are more compact.


When I say seasonal, I mean there are certain games that are for the warmer months and we should totally take advantage of those. For example, bocce ball, tennis balls, items to make a classic sand castle, beach bowling and volleyball nets for beach volleyball are all meant for the entire family and friends to play on a beach trip. Honestly, you can never go wrong with a simple flying disc or water bucket relay. These things are super easy to find a dollar store for fun activities.


Some games are complicated and for older kids or teens and adults, while others are made for young children or all ages. For instance, a relay race, seashell hunt, a beach scavenger hunt or making sand angels are a fun little competition for family members of all ages. While things like checkers are more advanced. They actually sell beach towels these days that have game boards printed on them, which makes for really easy and fun team games to bring out for a long day at the beach. I have to say, that is a family favorite of ours, it is a top pick and makes for the perfect game as well as a great time.

  1. I like a lot of these. The paddle set was a big hit when my kids were little. We always had snorkel gear and a soccer ball then something to throw and catch covered entertainment.

  2. We enjoyed playing many of these games at home, especially badminton, bocce, and Uno. Whenever we took our kids to the beach, we brought buckets, shovels, and a ball if we had room.

    These are all really great and exciting beach games! My kids would love to do all of these specially volleyball!

  4. These are awesome suggestions that I will remember next time. Usually we have a lot of fun by making a contest of the most beautiful sand castle.
