Summertime in Cape May is just around the corner and that means lots of outdoor fun, especially at the beach. When most of us think about spending the day at the beach, we think about uninterrupted sunbathing coupled with the occasional cool-off dip. But there’s a ton of other fun things to do at the beach. Here are our top five list of fun things to do at the beach this summer.
Have a Picnic
If you’re beach-going with friends and family enjoying a fun, outdoor, lunch may be exactly what you need to bring everyone together. Not sure what to pack? Here are some tasty summer recipes from Food + Wine. You’ll probably also want an umbrella, cooler with ice and water, plates, forks, napkins, etc. But, don’t forget, its especially important to keep our beaches clean – for our neighbors and wildlife. Make sure to pack a garbage bag so you don’t leave anything behind!
If picnicking isn’t your thing, The Montreal Beach Club provides concierge, rental and food services (in partnership with Harry’s Ocean Bar & Grille) on the beach at Madison Avenue. Hungry? Thirsty? Need chairs? We offer private cabanas, food & soft drink delivery, umbrellas and a world-class, family-friendly experience in the best spot on the Shore.
Beach games are a blast and they’re a great way to spend time with friends and family. They’re also especially great for keeping kids occupied and having fun. Some oldies but goodies are: limbo, water bucket relay, beach volleyball, tug of war, and beach treasure hunt. For adults, Outerbanks highlights tide ball, beach tennis and bocce ball among others. Conveniently, all these games can be played with a cocktail in one hand.
Build a Sandcastle
We know, the privilege of building sand castles is typically reserved for kids 10 and under, but there’s nothing like erecting an epic castle complete with a moat and drawbridge to get you in touch with your creative side. For those of us who need a little help in the castle-building department, these molds make it easy to build like a pro.
Watch the Sunset
There’s no better way to end your day at the beach! Cape May’s sunsets are spectacular, particularly from the vantage point of sunset beach – one of Cape May’s most visited spots during the summer season. Here, there’s also an evening flag ceremony held every night at between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Best of all… the sunsets and celebrations are free!
