One of the best date ideas is heading to the beach. There’s just something so magical with the sea breeze, the sand in your toes, and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore when you’re with someone special to you. If you’re planning a beach date, you need to make sure that you and your loved one are going to have the best time.
The Perfect Beach Date
What is the perfect beach date for you? Imagine the ideal date and start your planning from there. A clear idea of what you want will make the whole planning easier and increases the likelihood of the date being a success.
Here are some tips to help you have the perfect beach date:
Consider Going on a Sunset
Sunsets are most romantic when at the beach; therefore, if you’re looking to add an extra dose of romance to your date, then it’d be best to do it when the sun is about to set. Unsure of the time of the sunset at the beach? All you need is a quick Google “sunset time” search, and you’re all set. Make sure to head to the beach an hour before the sun goes down.
Learn About the Tides
The tides may not seem important until it looks like Poseidon’s throwing a fit. That doesn’t seem like a romantic beach date, does it? Checking the tide schedule will let you decide whether you should head to the beach or not. This is most important if you and your loved one plan to take a dip at the beach.
Be Familiar with Facilities
When you’re planning a beach date (or any other type of date), you want it to go as smoothly as possible. Going around the area looking for a parking spot can be a drag. Instead of getting lost, be familiar with the facilities around the beach. Research the nearest parking spots and make sure they’re secure. Check where the nearest bathrooms are located as well. These facilities are crucial to a perfect date, and you want to make sure that they’re easily accessible.
Know All the Beach Rules
Every beach has its own rules, so before you head down there, make sure that you know all of them. You’ll find there are set rules on clothing, dogs, children, hours of operation, music, and noise, etc.
Always Bring a Sunscreen
A bad sunburn while out on a date can turn into a nightmare. You surely don’t want to look like a roasted tomato after the date, right? Make sure to bring sunscreen and slather it all over your body — no matter how nerdy that gets. Your skin health is more important and surely, your date will understand.
It’s easy to get dehydrated at the beach because of the heat. That’s why you need to have a sufficient amount of water with you. This is also important if you plan to have a few drinks at the beach.
These are some of the essential things that you must remember to guarantee a successful beach date. Keep them in mind as you plan your ideal beach date, so you’ll have the best time!
