Come summer, and the lazy time spent tanning under the sun is what comes to mind. Those beach parties spent lounging or drinking outside while getting tanned – we get how fun being lazy can be. But is being the beach-couch potato the only way to enjoy your time under the sun? We say, “No!” In fact, beach time can be a lot more fun when you play beach games - we’re about to show you. Don’t worry. These summer games are much more fun than you might think, and we can’t wait for you to try them out!
Ball Catch Set Game Toss Paddle
The Ball Catch Set Game Toss Paddle is a staple in every home, and it's great fun at the beach too! Playing catch is easily one of the ways to relieve your mind of stress and anxiety, and it's a long-standing tradition for fathers and sons to use this activity to bond (not that we restrict the game to just them). This edition of the paddle is bigger and better reinforced for sturdiness, making it an ideal gift for children of all ages. They've even made the carry case quite portable so that you won't have any excuses to forget it on your beach trip!
Spikeball Pro Kit
It takes considerable effort to invent a new game, but it's even harder work to make it one that becomes a staple at every outdoor event you have. But, we're happy to claim that the Spikeball Pro Kit has easily crushed both of these goals. We found a game that involves 4 players who can find each other through the exclusive app, we found it to be like volleyball, but infinitely more fun. This game initially found its fame on Shark Tank, but the growth is fueled completely by the new players who swear that playing Spikeball is worth every penny.
Champion Sports Horseshoe Set
Almost everyone remembers playing some version of Horseshoes when they were growing up. But because the game with real horseshoes is slightly impossible to play indoors, the Champion Sports Horseshoe Set is what you need to get. Made completely of rubber, the horseshoes are just a tad less heavy than the traditional horseshoes, but they’re still heavy enough to make the game just as fun! Setting this up on the beach takes no time, which means you can get down to business impressing your friends with your “throw and aim” skills.
NOMNOM TOYS, Glow in The Dark Lawn Darts Game Set
The sun is setting, but your kids don't want to leave the beach quite yet. You know they've wanted to spend the summer on the beach, but what's a fun game to play when the sun is setting? NOMNOM TOYS, Glow in The Dark Lawn Dart Game Set might be what you are looking for. The only rule to playing this game – there are no rules. Don't worry about how safe it is to play with – because there are no pointed ends, there's no path to harm with this set. Call us crazy, but it's pretty cool to see a glowing dart in flight before it lands in a glowing ring.
Tiki Toss Ring Toss Game
The Tiki Toss Ring Toss Game involves tossing your ring and landing it perfectly onto a hook on the other side. Sound simple and boring? Wait till you get to play because this game is as addictive as beach games get. You won’t stop because it’s going to keep you playing until you build the skill to land the ring properly. This game is easy to learn but hard to put into action. There is no limit to the number of players, but we recommend you keep the numbers limited – some of your friends will turn into enemies playing this game. Tread lightly...
The Ultimate Skip Ball
The Ultimate Skip Ball has been called the Hottest New Beach Toy of 2022 by NBC, FOX, CBS, and ABC. We thought this claim had to be put to the test - and we weren’t disappointed! Now you get to take your game of catch into the water because this ball skips and floats on the water and takes your game to an unexplored level. But enthusiasts should note – the balls are slightly smaller than your average tennis ball. But this size is optimal for skipping across water, and we can assure you this won’t make the game any less fun - in fact, the challenge is greater.
Juegoal Yard Pong
The Juegoal Yard Pong is your regular Ball pong game but raised to the size of buckets. The set includes 12 red buckets and 4 balls and automatically becomes a game that you have in your trunk to take out whenever you want to play a fun game with close ones, wherever you are. Made with heavy-duty plastic, these buckets can withstand the summer heat for many years so that you have a game set that lasts in your beach collection.
GoSports Classic Cornhole Set
The classic Cornhole game that we all grew up with is back in town, thanks to GoSports Classic Cornhole Set. Made with high-quality wood, the manufacturers offer this game in various designs, and we're sure you can find something that speaks to you. The beanbags are heavy-duty but fit nicely between the boards. We also thought this set was relatively easy to carry around. Ideal for the beach and for the summer neighborhood parties, the design on the boards is sure to get conversations going. And given the set's affordable price, well, what are you waiting for?
Yardzee, Farkle & 20+ Games
Yardzee, Farkle & 20+ Games is a set of 6 large wooden dice and scorecards for different dice games. We thought the large dice were a nice way to play games life-size. The first thing you will notice about this game is how beautiful the wooden dice look. The surprising thing about this set is the collapsible bucket, which is a great way to roll the dice and prevent cheating (yes, we just squashed your hopes). Between the 20 games, we think you’re going to have a lot of fun. The great quality and wide array of games make this an ideal present for any occasion, for all ages.
Dynamic Discs Beach Glider
The typical image of a beach involves tanning, children building sandcastles, and a group playing beach volleyball. The Dynamic Discs Beach Glider is the new version of the flying frisbee disc on the block (or should we say the beach?). Additionally, these discs also glow in the dark so you can keep on playing long after the sunny hours of the day! The best thing we like about frisbee disks is how we can start playing them in the middle of nowhere and still end up having a fun time.
Kan Jam Original Disc Toss Game
The Kan Jam Original Disc Toss Game was a success when it first hit the market, and it still continues to be one of the most enjoyed games to be played on the beach. Players take opposite sides and throw and deflect the flying disks that come from the other player. We think the best way to describe this game would be to call it a match between Cornhole and Disc Golf (we aren’t too far off with this). Additionally, the discs also glow in the dark, so you can keep playing even after the sun sets!
RampShot Game Set
Just like the Spikeball Pro Kit, the RampShot Game Set is described as “Cornhole on Steroids” simply because of the level of movement this game can bring out of the players. Three out of the four players are always on guard, looking to add points by catching the ball before the other team does. In particular, we liked how the uneven grooves on the ramp add an unpredictable twist to the ball’s bounce, making for a fun, engaging, and competitive game. We highly recommend that this game be added to your list of beach games for this summer!
Shaka Ball Game Set
If you love playing games on the beach, here are some reasons why the Shaka Ball Game Set is perfect for you. Firstly, it is super easy to set up – under 2 minutes to get started with friends! Secondly, the game is fierce and competitive – you need to protect your slice without getting “burned.” Shaka found the limelight on Kickstarter, and the game has only grown its audience ever since. We cannot decide whether it is like 4-person ping pong or 4-square with paddles. But we can agree on one thing – it is absolutely fun to play while waiting for the waves to calm down.
