How to Plan the Perfect Beach Date

If you’ve watched any chick flick, you know that there’s nothing more romantic than a date on the beach. While the ocean makes a fantastic background for a date, there are a lot of factors involved in executing the perfect beach date. We’ll break it down for you:

Planning The Perfect Beach Date

Check the Weather

Nothing ruins an outdoor date fast than bad weather. Be sure you consult the weatherman to ensure you pick a picture perfect day.

Pack a Picnic

You’re sure to get extra points from your date for packing a cute picnic lunch. Pack easy-to-eat foods, like sandwiches or pizza (nothing that requires utensils).

Look up the Sunset Time

Sunset over the ocean, is there anything romantic? Make sure you’re picking the perfect time of day by doing a little research and finding out what time the sun is supposed to set so you can plan accordingly.

Learn the Tide Schedule

At some places on the coast during high tide the beach can completely disappear. Do a little research on your ideal spot and check to make sure the tide won’t be a hindering factor for your date.

Bring a Jacket

Remember that beaches can be very windy! If you’re planning on holding the date during the evening, you should consider bringing a jacket (yes, even in the summer!) to avoid chill and discomfort from the wind.
