The best way to avoid a crowded city and heat during summer is by spending time on the beach. Whether with friends, family, pets or by yourself heading to the beach is always enjoyable and fun. 

 

Beach offers lots of activities that will help you relax and unwind, set your worries aside and just enjoy quality time. And if you’re wondering what activities to pursue while you're there, here are a couple of recommendations and tips. 

 

Jogging

 

Going for a run along the shore has lots of benefits as it is a healthy way to relieve yourself of stress and exercise. And if you haven’t tried it before it’s best to take notes and learn from these beach running tips

 

Running in the sand takes a lot of energy as you don’t get normal traction as you would on regular tracks. It can be exhausting and tiring, but the good news is that you burn more calories and gain more muscle mass running on sand. If you want to give it a try the first thing that you should keep on your mind is where to start. Experienced beach runners know that the softer the sand is the harder it is to run on it.

 

Running over the rugged sand is easier because your feet don’t sink so much and you don't have that much resistance. That also means more tension on the leg muscles and joints, and of course, you will burn out fast. Explore with different types of sand for best experience and try some different running techniques like zig-zag, sprinting,  or setting a time limit. 

 

Beach Volleyball

 

There are a lot of other sports and activities that can also be fun and exciting to try during summer. For example, beach volleyball is an excellent sport for socializing, team building or staying in shape. The best part is when your feet start to burn from scorching hot sand and you transition to water. 

 

Playing volleyball in water is extremely fun but also challenging. The trickiest part is placing the net. Try to be as close as possible to the shore. This way the water won’t move your poles for the net and you’ll be able to play for as long as you want. 

 

Diving

 

If you are one of those people that spend more time in water than others, you should definitely try diving. Learning how to dive gives you a chance to see all the wonders of marine life, explore, and experience everything that the ocean has to give. Best places for beginners to dive are Anilao, Philippines, Florida Keys, etc. These are the places where marine life is still intact and the beaches aren’t crowded with tourists.

 

The Caribbean desert island Bonaire has a 24/7 site access where you can upgrade your diving skills and venture into night diving to have an even better experience. It’s recommended to find a place that isn’t too popular and therefore isn’t filled with tourists, has a nice beach, and to bring an experienced diver with you. 

 

Paddleboarding

 

If you like adrenaline and that feeling of blood rushing through your veins, you can always try extreme spots. And you don’t have to go for skydiving immediately, but something less dangerous like paddleboarding for example. The combination of canoeing and surfing will definitely prove to be fun as you catch waves on the long surfboard and steer yourself around with an oar. 

 

And you don’t have to chase colossal waves to surf as this isn’t that kind of activity. Instead of standing on a board trying to balance and surf, experience a new way of using a board with paddle boarding. 

Kitesurfing

 

When you're trying to find the best sports activity during summer days you shouldn't forget about kiteboarding. It’s a fun and exciting way to surf and once you’ll love it the moment you try it. The first couple of times should be done with professionals and experts in this are. 

 

The general idea is that you wait on your surfboard until the kite gets carried by the wind. From there you steer the kite and your board at the same time to use the wind and achieve stunning speed. You can traverse large areas this way but it takes practice to master these moves and stay on the course of the wind for an extended period of time. 

 

 

There’s a lot of activities that you can enjoy during summer, but what might sound appealing for one person isn't for the next one. That’s why it’s best to decide on the types of activities you want to try this summer before the season comes. This way you won’t wander the beach looking for things to do but head straight for bungee jumping, surfing or kayaking.
