5 Fun & Exciting Games for Your Next Beach Getaway

April 6, 2020
The Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort

As the months move closer to heat spells, your mind may drift off into the caress of waves and cool water. There’s the feel of sand in between your toes and the cool glass of lemonade in between your fingers. With the sound of the sea rushing in your ears and a breathtaking view to die for right in front of you, you’re on your way to having the vacation of your dreams.

A beach resort is one of the best places for a fun summertime, but unfortunately, the weather can quickly change, as with your energy levels. But you don’t have to let that spoil the fun as there are plenty more activities you can try.

While games aren’t the first things that come to mind when looking to enjoy a luxury beach resort, our curated list will ensure that the vacation mood lingers and stays inviting! Here are five games to play at the beach:

1. Checkers

This game is popular all over the world, but the best thing about playing it on the beach is that you can play it using the sand. Create your own checkerboard by drawing it on the sand using a stick, and gather some shells and pebbles to use as checker pieces!

If the beach is on the rockier side, however, consider looking for alternatives. Perhaps a plastic sheet board could be of help. Draw lines using a permanent marker you’ve borrowed from the beach resort’s office and use various items as pieces. Checkers calls for more than just playing the game because your creativity and imagination are also at work!

2. Dots and Boxes

Dots and Boxes is popular as a pencil-and-paper game, but playing it on a sandy beach sounds more fun! Use a stick to make a grid, which should be five dots wide and five dots tall. If you’re looking for more challenge, draw the grid even larger, perhaps with seven to eight dots on either side.

Each player is given a turn, where they need to draw a line in between the dots. Now, the goal is to be able to create a complete box, meaning that you’re allowed to mark it with your initial. Play until there’s no more space left. The winner, then, will be the individual with the most boxes created.

3. Horseshoes

Unlike most of what’s in this curated list, horseshoes is a traditional beach game. With its laidback nature, it’s perfect for a lazy day, one that will certainly keep you from lying around all day. Horseshoes are made from metal, so best believe you’ll be getting that much-needed exercise session!

4. Farkle

Farkle requires the use of dice and is known by many other different names. Whether you suddenly find the weather changing, you’re waiting for the tides to pull back, or you’re waiting for beach waves to pick back up for surfing, this game is the perfect game to play. It’s a long game, but can be abandoned quickly should your beach fate changes. Because the rules of this game vary, be sure to choose one that is most familiar to everyone!

5. Rock Climbing Race

If you’re looking for a little more adventure, why not call for a little rock climbing race? Unlike most on this list, this requires extreme caution and skill. If you’re up for the challenge, take up rock climbing at Railay, the world’s best climbing spots ever. When the weather permits, gather your friends for a little friendly competition, and the losing team pays for dinner!
