How often at work or school has your mind wandered off to a place with your toes in the sand and a sea breeze on your face? A day at the beach has all kinds of wonderful connotations. Every single one is presumably a better choice than work or school!
A day at the beach is a reality for anyone who can get to the Grand Strand for a day trip, weekend jaunt, or week-long escape.
It’s more than pointing your car toward the shore and stopping when you get there. There are rookie mistakes that we’d like to help you avoid. This list ought to see you through to the kind of beach day you’ve been (day)dreaming of.
What to Pack
Be ready for anything, from strong sun to wind gusts to a serene afternoon by the surf.
When to Go
Afternoon and evening are best, to enjoy a swim or time on the beach without the crowds or fierce sun. 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. is the peak window for the most sun. Going later means you can watch the sunset while sharing a pizza on the shore.
Drinks and Snacks at the Tiki Bar
On-site at Caribbean Resort, the Tiki Bar is right on the oceanfront and famous for its signature Voodoo Bucket. They serve other tropical favorites too, as well as burgers and hot dogs for a casual meal or snack. Come lounge in the sun and away from the sand at the Tiki Bar.
Cool Off with An Ocean Dip
It’s a refreshing reprieve to dive into the ocean for a bit, and if the water is a bit cool, that’s good for endorphins, too. It can boost your immune system, create a natural high, and improve circulation. Not to mention burned calories and reduced stress.
Take a Morning Walk
The salty air and that renewing sea breeze are the perfect way to an uplifting start to the day. On a clear day, early enough, you can watch the sunrise, too. There’s something special about a sunrise on the ocean to put life into perspective.
Take an Evening Walk, Too
Depending on time and location, you could walk in the moonlight and have the beach all to yourself. Talk about peace; stop your walk, sit in the sand and listen to the waves crashing. This serene time can put your mind at ease and set up a relaxing evening.
