4 Fun Solo Beach Activity Ideas and What to Bring
The arrival of those beautiful days of spring and summer often turns our thoughts toward the beach. One of the best ways to experience the beach is on a solo adventure. Avoid the popular stretches and indulge in some alone time. With a little preparation and the right apparel, like long sleeve fishing shirts, solo beach adventures can be quick summer getaways for anyone who loves the water.
First: Plan and Pack For Your Adventure
Whatever you choose to do at the beach, a little preparation is necessary to ensure that it’s as safe and fun as it should be. For starters, let someone know where you plan to go, for how long, and when you’ll be back. Consider checking in with your contacts regularly. Bring enough food and water for the day, erring on the side of more than you might need. Take along sunscreen and apply early and often.
Dress for the weather, consider a hat and polarized sunglasses for sun protection. To keep yourself cool and comfortable, look for a professional-grade fishing shirt for men. An exceptional fishing shirt should be lightweight, breathable, and made from high-performance polyester that provides UPF 50+ UV protection. Look for apparel that is moisture-wicking to keep you dry and comfortable. Pack waterproof outerwear for rain just in case. Up next comes planning your adventure and activities.
Go Surf Fishing
Surf fishing is great because it can be approached in a few different ways. Anyone looking for a more proactive undertaking can strap on chest waders, wade into the surf and cast out as far as they can. You’ll want performance fishing apparel for intense surf fishing, like a long sleeve shirt with UV protection. Surf fishing can also be as simple as throwing your bait into the water, securing your rod, and kicking back while you wait for a bite. For casual surf fishing, pack a stylish, relaxed fishing long sleeve shirt or Tshirt, and remember to keep up with the sunscreen. Find a good fishing hole and pick the surf fishing style you prefer.
Try Stand-Up Paddleboarding
Stand-up paddleboarding requires finding a safe, calm stretch of ocean, and the right safety gear. If you can successfully meet those criteria, stand-up paddleboarding is relaxing, great exercise, and great fun. Make sure you always stay leashed to your board and wear a life jacket. You’ll want a pair of polarized sunglasses to combat the glare of the sun reflecting off the water, and extra sun protection for your skin, like sunscreen and a breathable, UPF 50+ fishing shirt.
For a great throwback to a simpler time, perhaps childhood beach vacations, consider taking a stroll through the sand and looking for unique and attractive shells. Make sure that shell collecting is allowed, and if you find a shell with something alive in it, put it back. It’s a great, meditative way to spend a lazy afternoon and appreciate features of nature you might otherwise miss.
Explore Tide Pools
Speaking of childhood beach activities that were a highlight of visiting the beach, consider spending a day exploring tide pools. Tide pools are an incredible snapshot into a coastal ocean ecosystem that can be enjoyed without needing to go diving. They’re also forever changing, meaning you never know what you’ll find.
