Beach Themed Summer Bucket List 2019

August 1, 2019



Beach days can be the BEST can’t they?


We’ve racked up so many beach memories as a family over the last few years, and I can’t wait for more this summer. We ALWAYS freestyle our days on the coast, so this year I’ve decided to make a Beach Themed Summer Bucket List. Not only so that we can make the most of our time, but also so we can tick off some of those great ideas that we haven’t got round to yet.

  1. We live near the Norfolk coast and we don’t go to the beach nearly enough. This kind of bucket list sounds like loads of fun.

  2. I’m 46 and last week I tried crabbing for the first time. It was so much fun (and we caught loads)!

  3. Sabina Green says:

    Great list! We took cheap kites to the beach one year and had a great afternoon playing with them!

  4. Stephanie says:

    I love the beach but don’t get there enough, I will remember this one when we next visit it

  5. Pati Robins says:

    love your beach bucket list ! it actually gave me loads of ideas as to what we can do too x so thank you xx

  6. Zoe says:

    Ah we love the beach. The kids think it’s special when we go as we don’t live as near to one as I would like. We also do a beach clean when we go, as the kids are very aware of how plastic affects the animals in the sea.

  7. Jenni says:

    Great list! We’ve done quite a few of these at the beach this summer. Still want to go crabbing, but we managed to get in flying a kite, and baking pancakes over a campfire.

  8. Sonia says:

    Awww I love this! I can’t wait for our two week at the beach later this month. Will definitely be printing this to take with us x

  9. clare minall says:

    looks like you’ve really had a great summer, sad thing is that its rainy days now in our country

  10. Sally says:

    Aww all those things bring back lovely memories of things we did as kids. I hope our little one has lovely memories too.


  11. That’s gas … we have a 14 and a 15-year old and we live by the sea but can’t get them to comes to the beach with us anymore!!! I miss those days! #DreamTeam

  12. No matter how grown up or far flung our family becomes, I hope we can still make time for at least ONE family beach day every year. There’s nothing like a salty day of sunshine and fun with everyone present.

  13. We must have done all of these over the years, but looking back we haven’t been to the beach nearly enough this year. I put it down to my growing kids who are off doing their own things more and more each year. I think I miss family beach days much more than they do #DreamTeam

  14. sam says:

    This is fab, so many great ideas to have fun in the summer X #dreamteam

  15. neil says:

    I LOVE beach days. We’re lucky living in the North East that the Northumberland coast is not too far away and has some gorgeous beaches. On holiday this year I got up at sunrise to have a walk along the coast and it was magical. #dreamteam

  16. We love a beach day, I’m sure we’ve done most of the things on this list over the past few months! #dreamteam

  17. Thanks for the list. Pinned for next time we go to the beach.

  18. Alex Newton says:

    We love the beach. The last time we were at the beech the tide was out which left small pools of water that we investigated and found all kinds of creatures. Great Fun #DreamTeam

  19. Kirsty says:

    I love these ideas. Definitely pinning for holiday next year! Great to be back with #DreamTeam

  20. Great ideas! I always think to take flags for sandcastles and always forget! We didn’t get to the beach as much as I’d hoped this year, but we’ll definitely be making more of an effort next year when our littlest is a bit bigger. #dreamteam

  21. Emma says:

    Aaah I love crabbing, lots of happy childhood memories doing just that, and some yet to be made with my boys! Hiring a beach hut would be a dream, but maybe one I’d like to do sans kids, just me and the hubby sipping something chilled and admiring the view. #DreamTeam

  22. Its silly how little we go to the beach in the summer. I think the pool had me a bit spoiled #dreamteam

  23. Tracey Carr says:

    Oh this is making me feel a little bit sad! I promised myself that I would bring my daughters to the beach this summer but we never got to do it. It was for several reasons (poor weather a lot of the time!) but I still really regret it because it was on my summer list of things to do with them. I loved reading through your list Annette, there are so many great suggestions there. Now if only we could get one more spell of nice weather before the autumn really kicks in and I might just get them there! #dreamteam

  24. Crummy Mummy says:

    We live by the beach so can tick most of these off – hope you had a great summer! #DreamTeam

  25. Heather Keet says:

    Hot donuts on the pier. That sounds like the best day ever! #DreamTeam

  26. I love this. Its everything i remember from my son growing up and impromptu trips to the beach irrespective of the time of year x #dreamteam
