Plan a day at the beach with your boyfriend to kick off the start to a memorable summer. If you are an ultra social couple, get all of your friends together, couples and single guys and gals, to help celebrate the sunshine and warmth coming back again. If the two of you need some bonding time, take a day for just of the two of you. All of these ideas for a fun and sexy day at the beach can be tailored either way. They are only meant to inspire you to create the perfect beginning for summer romance, whatever that means to the two of you.
What to Wear
Since you’ll be there all day, dress in layers to start out with. Put on your sexiest bikini or one piece bathing suit and light pair of shorts or pants depending on the weather. Throw on a t-shirt and a sweatshirt or sweater or at least bring them with to prepared for the cooler nights that come with being by the water. A pair of cute flip-flops or other shoes that are easy to slip on and off are also a must. Make sure your feet are summer ready, nail polish and all, ahead of time.
What to Pack
Remember your beauty essentials when you plan a day at the beach with your boyfriend. They include a hair brush or comb to tame wind strewn locks and leave in conditioning spray for the same reason. Don’t forget sunblock as nothing ruins romantic summer dates faster than turning into a lobster. Grab the aloe or after-sun lotion just in case your guy doesn’t think ahead or gets stubborn. Bring your cutest pair of sunglasses and a sun hat to strengthen your protection. The rest of what you need to pack depends on the activities you choose to do.
Get up early and grab your coffee to go. Throw a blanket in the car. Bring along a basket of fresh fruit and croissants and eat together on the sand while watching the sunrise over the water. Even if you have friends coming later, have this time alone in the morning before they all show up for the rest of the fun.
Plan a day at the beach with your boyfriend that includes physical activities you both enjoy. Options include volleyball, swimming, snorkeling or scuba diving. Romantic summer dates at the beach can consist of walking along and hunting for shells or sea glass. Have some leisure time by renting a boat, a pontoon, jet skis or even a couple surfboards. Try out a new water activity that you have never done before together for an adventurous memory. Even is both end up not liking it, a few humorous moments are guaranteed to happen. Nothing is better for summer romance than to add to your “couple stories” storehouse of inside jokes and memories.
End the day with an evening swim and watching the sunset over the water. Start a bonfire and grill some hot dogs, roast some marshmallows and make Smores. If your friends are there, sing and tell stories. If your alone, bring a radio to play your favorite romantic summer date songs. Snuggle under a blanket with your guy and just enjoy sitting together with the moonlight reflecting on the waves. Burn this moment into your memory because this is what summer romance is all about.
Make it a yearly event to plan a day at the beach with your boyfriend. As with other special times, anything that the two of you can do to have fun and reconnect with each other should become a tradition.
