We know what you’re thinking, there seems to be an awareness day for everything, but there’s one coming up we think you’ll love. Whether you’re one of our lucky owners making the most of endless holidays at the UK’s most spectacular locations, or you’re joining us for a short summer break before school starts again - here’s how you can make the most of National Beach Day on August 30th.
What is National Beach Day?
National Beach Day was created to encourage us to participate in cleaning up and looking after our beaches, both here and further afield and as you know, we’re lucky enough to have some of the best on our doorstep(s).
We have six incredible parks located in picturesque coastal areas; think sprawling panoramas, beautiful sunsets and even the chance to catch a wave or two if you’re feeling adventurous! Available 12 months of the year, you can ditch the daily grind and escape to a stunning coastal holiday park whenever the sea calls. All of our parks are pet-friendly, so there’s no need to worry about leaving your four-legged friends behind, they can come too!
Here are our top tips for making your beach day one to remember...
Do your bit -
There are a few specific days designed to encourage tidying up these beautiful spaces, but why not set aside an hour of your day by the coast and challenge yourselves or the kids to an hour of ‘beach beautification’? Grab a bag and pick up any litter you find to help keep the sand safe and stunning for everyone.
Fly a kite or build a sandcastle -
An oldie but a goodie. One of the best things about the Great British staycation is the nostalgia of it all and the general reliability of our weather to guarantee some kite flying! Getting back to the basics of a family holiday without the hassle of airports, baggage claim and dodgy air con.
Great fun for kids big or small; take a walk, see what you can find. From smooth pebbles of worn sea glass, to driftwood and shells, there’s plenty to see and you can always get super creative and make some beach art if you’re feeling imaginative!
Have a picnic with a view -
We love nothing more than a proper picnic by the sea. Pack your blanket, your paper plates and your favourite classic sandwiches and take it to the sea - perhaps even watch the sunset? Don’t forget a bag to make sure you leave the beach super tidy and litter-free and of course, pack a jacket just in case! Looking for some tasty picnic inspiration? We’ve even put together a special post about picnics done right!
