There’s a good reason why the beach is a prime spot for romance. During the day the sun on the water glistens like a diamond and at night the glow of the moon is equally breathtaking. In light of my upcoming book, “Malibu Angel,” being set at the beach, I’ve listed five top romantic things to do at the beach.
Profess Your Love in the Sand
Sure, it’s fun to make sand castles, but creating visual testaments of your love in the sand is even better. You can simply make a heart with you and your loved one’s initials, or go a step further and write a poem before the ocean takes your thoughts out to sea.
Message in a Bottle
These days, we know that throwing a bottle out to sea isn’t very environmentally friendly. But, here’s an updated way to send a message out to sea. Grab a large stone, use paint or chalk to write a love message and toss it with all your might. Your thoughts will be forever with the ocean.
Picnic by Day or Night
Let’s face it…food and romance go together. Whether you’re having a picnic during the day or an evening feast, enjoying your food on the beach somehow makes it taste just a bit better.
Can you rub suncream on my shoulders?
Have you heard that line? It’s an oldie, but a goodie. When your loved one looks like they’re getting a little fried, or even if they’re not, offer to massage the suncream onto their shoulders and then take some extra time around their neck and back. It’s an appropriate way to get close.
Take a beach walk.
The great thing about taking a walk on the beach is that there isn’t a need for words. Simply holding hands, feeling the ocean breeze and gazing at the water while it nips at your toes is an ideal way to spend time with someone you care about.
