Cupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Beach and BeyondCupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Beach and Beyond

By Rachel Sparks

You’ve been to the beach with your love about a hundred times this summer. It’s time to look for new ways to enjoy the sun and sand. The days are long and the possibilities are endless. This weekend’s date idea is all about trying new things in the sun!

This weekend’s date idea is about fun in the sun together!

Search for beautiful shells and sand dollars in the sand. You’ll have a great time showing off your finds to each other, and it’ll help you break away from your usual routine of sunbathing and swimming. If you’re feeling adventurous, look for crabs darting across the beach. Make a game out of it: if your partner finds more crabs than you, you have to cook him dinner for a romantic end to your date night!

If you really want to get serious about searching, bring a metal detector with you and see what random items are buried on the beach. You and your love will get excited whenever that buzzer goes off. The thrill of the treasure hunt will get you both excited.

Once you’re done exploring, get messy in the sand together. Dig a hole and bury each other. You’ll both feel like kids again, and you’ll love creating new laughs together. Build sand castles. Have a contest to see whose creation comes out the best. Bury your legs and make a mermaid tail. End with a beach photoshoot Reese Witherspoon or Gwen Stefani-family style!

If you like learning new things, look into your beach’s history. Pick up a brochure or check out their website; maybe there’s an area further down from your usual spot that you never knew existed. Sharing some knowledge will spark both your curiosities and will give you something new to discuss.
