Going to the beach is something that most everyone enjoys. Indeed, one of the most popular holiday destinations is the beach. The sea wind is refreshing. People come for the sand and sea, as well as the blazing sun, all seeking to enjoy the place where the ocean meets the land. And practically everyone has a tale to tell about it.
The beach is usually associated with frolicking on the sand, collecting some rays, or enjoying a gorgeous sunset with our loved ones, but it isn’t always that simple! From sand in your trousers and friend pranks to sunburns and hammock comedy, the beach can be a perilous minefield. We’ve gathered some of the funniest beach failures from across the world to remind us that, while life may be a beach, we can always find the silver lining.
That’s What Denture-tainment Is All About
When it comes to shark tooth hunting, timing is important. A terrific time to go out and seek these small gems is right after a major storm. If you’re heading to the beach after a large storm, make sure it’s safe before you go. However, even then you could discover more than you bargained for. This Reddit member who took her kid to the beach to look for shark teeth made a teeth-chattering and, to be honest, quite unpleasant discovery.
It was the last thing she expected to hear when her kid said, “I discovered teeth!” Perhaps Grandpa took them out and dumped them on the beach? Perhaps a ship carrying artificial teeth collided, scattering the cargo all over the place? In any case, the thought of all that sand grinding between teeth is terrifying.
House Cat on Vacation
Is your cat going to accompany you on your trip, or would he prefer to stay at home? Cats, on the whole, love regularity and predictability. Your cat may like being with you, but going to odd new areas might cause stress for your cat, which can lead to sickness or behavioral issues. On the other hand, some cats like traveling with their people and do so on a regular basis.
Kitty likes baths, so he’ll definitely appreciate the endless expanse of water, right? It’ll be like a million baths at once, complete with damp sand and a million strange odors. Human, reconsider! I hate to break it to you, but there’s a reason they’re called house cats, people! This poor kitten is terrified by what he’s seen, which makes sense given that a smiling guy in a Borat mankini is never more than 50 yards away.
Felons in a Flock
Their screams may bring back memories of long summer days at the beach, but a swarm of seagulls may be annoying and even harmful to our health. People have devised deterrents ranging from superpowered spray cannons to sheepdogs, with different degrees of effectiveness, to keep these aggressive birds away. Hold on to your caps and sandwiches if you’re headed to the beach!
It’s best not to step foot on this beach, where, according to this Reddit sign, a ruthless band of mafia seagulls is in charge of the entire shoreline. More information is needed, since if the seagulls aren’t employed by the management, by whom are they employed? What about the crustacean crew? Or what about the mollusk mafia? Stay in the water as this aquatic gangland adventure heats up!
I’m sure you fantasize about lying on the beach with the sun on your face and warm sand between your toes. Have you ever observed your footprints in the sand when at the beach? Someone has already thought of it. This Reddit user reveals their newest phony invention, FlopFlips, which is less of a beach fail and more of an esplanade escapade.
Sandals with reverse soles that make it appear as if you’re walking backwards on the beach. Stalkers, I’ll see you later! If the prototype is any indication, this idea for a pointless stocking filler will be a success! They’d also be highly popular among the murdering community, as another commenter pointed out. Catch me if you can!
Making Matters Worse
Jimmy Fallon, a comedian and talk show host, proves that laughter truly is the greatest medicine by sharing his hilarious beach mistake with the globe. What begins as a James Bond moment to impress his wife quickly devolves into a disaster! “I tried to impress my wife by acting like Daniel Craig/James Bond and stepping out of the ocean.”
“A wave pushed me over: riptide, pants down, bleeding knee, hair that looked like a horrible toupee, and a small child on the beach spotted me and began screaming.” If the fall, bloodied knee, and terrible-toupee moment weren’t awful enough, Fallon was then mocked by a young child, adding insult to injury. Fortunately, he’s built a career out of being laughed at, so we’re confident he’ll be fine.
A Hundred Dollars in Change
Children will teach you that “treasure” may refer to a lot more than a hidden trunk full of pirate money. There’s far more to it than the ancient art discovered in European caves or the gilded splendors of King Tut’s tomb. The story of the Atocha, a 17th-century Spanish shipwreck carrying $400 million worth of rare riches, is only the beginning of the kids’ exploration quest.
Reddit user u/sarebot18 recalls how her 8-year-old came rushing up the beach shouting at the top of his lungs, “I found $100!” in a classic example of “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” When Mom walked over to have a look, it turned out to be more Monopoly than seized loot. Even still, that 8-year-old must have felt quite cool when he asked the ice cream vendor if he had a hundred dollars in change!
Get Ready to Be Livestreamed
At lifeguard-protected beaches, safety authorities display beach warning signs to notify and warn beachgoers of potentially dangerous circumstances. Always read all the posted signs and follow them. However, these indications might occasionally signify something very different from what you expect. Everyone has been caught short on a beach once or twice, but the guards on this beach in Lithuania have taken it to the next level.
Threatening anyone who discovers it with five minutes of not-so-famous fame! Many Reddit users pointed out that people who need to be urged to pee in public could find it more motivating to do so. This is what they meant when they said “free streaming service”!
Taking in the Scene
Nothing says summer like a trip to the beach, and those who hit the sand as soon as work ends on Friday afternoon are in luck. The beach is often peaceful, and the seas are tranquil. It’s a wonderful area to visit for a day of picnics, sunbathing, and relaxing.
Unlike our sunburned acquaintance, this guy has taken the sunscreen’s suggestion to “apply generously every 2 to 4 hours” a little too seriously! Worse, he’ll be immortalized on Google Street View staring at… the ocean. Marcus, if you don’t massage it in, it won’t work! Maybe he’s always wanted to be famous on the internet, but this isn’t the holiday photo he’ll be showing the guys when he returns home.
A Twitter user named Joel Mohr has no qualms about his side job, claiming a humiliating experience on a family vacation in Newport as justification. Joel and his wife snuck away in the dead of night, but the police searchlight had other ideas for them! “My wife and I were on a family vacation in Newport Beach. We snuck away from the family at night to make love on the beach.”
“A police plane hunting for a suspect noticed us with its light as we began to make love. They suggested that we get a room.” Given that this was a family getaway, Joel and his wife aren’t exactly spring birds, so they should have known better. However, worse things have happened as a result of a beautiful afternoon and 2-for-1 drinks!
Relaxation and Rest
Nothing beats stretching and meditating to the sounds of waves softly lapping on the shore during yoga. It has also been established that the sound of waves can help to relax the mind. The parasympathetic nervous system is engaged as waves come in, crash, and then retreat, slowing the brain and promoting relaxation.
There’s nothing more relaxing than the sound of the waves, unless you’re in a class with this lady, of course! u/DimitriT, a Reddit member, was pleased to post this snapshot of his wife in the traditional “fart at the sky” pose. She had her bag with her, which may indicate that she was attempting to take off!
Three’s a Crowd
The seashore is frequently surrounded by a romantic ambience. Maybe it’s the spectacular sunset, the sound of the waves crashing on the coast, or the cool wind and breathtaking vista of the big ocean. A beach is a haven for lovers, and it’s the ideal setting for a romantic date with your significant other. Summer and Seth, the photographer’s best pals, were presumably set up for a summer romance by the photographer and his girlfriend.
It’ll be like “The OC” if the group hangs out at the beach! However, this adoring pair seemed to have started a heavy make-out session after one too many sangrias. Summer love is hot and quick, so the best plan of action may be to sprinkle them with water to calm them off.
This Isn’t a Test!
When it comes to terror and chaos at the beach, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws has a lot to account for, as Twitter user Emily learned when she noticed what seemed to be a shark fin in the ocean. “When I saw a fin in the water at the beach, I yelled ‘SHAAAAARK!’ and everyone else on the beach hastily swam back to shore.”
“‘That’s a dolphin,’ he stated with irritation as we hurried up to the lifeguard’s tower to report our sighting.” The chances of being attacked by a shark are less than 1 in 4 million, and lifeguards already have enough to handle without having to deal with bogus shark attacks, but this happens many times a week!
Glitter and Toe-Rings
Weekend getaways, day outings full of sun, and deluxe escapes filled with sunbathing, fine dining, and sumptuous spa treatments are all options for beach vacations. Whatever type of vacation you’re searching for, there’s a beach resort for you. Remember when the beach was all about building sandcastles and sunbathing?
Those carefree days of ice cream, Ultimate Frisbee, and rock pools are no longer with us. Today, going to the beach means just one thing: selfie time! Congrats to the one girl who is trying to snorkel, albeit it’s uncertain what kind of treasure she’ll find on the bottom. Toe rings and glitter are more likely than tropical fish and coral.
All Are Conquered by Love
We will wander after tasting love, only to return for more since that is what our souls long for. As a result, you will be able to overcome life’s challenges and capacities. This heart-warming beach mistake was shared on Twitter by Mary Strand, whose husband planned the ideal beach engagement. Listening to the waves, possibly in the glow of a sunset, seemed like a beautiful scene, he reasoned.
“While we were standing in the water, my now-husband proposed to me with his back to the waves. He was knocked out by a 15-foot wave. I couldn’t help but chuckle.” The pair were really carried off their feet, not simply swept up in the moment! Thankfully, he didn’t lose the ring, and Mary merely laughed (and said yes!). It’s a marriage proposal that will live long in their memory.
They Said It’ll Be Fun…
Anybody who knows anything about cats will tell you that they despise water. While there is some hard data to support this idea, it is still mostly a generalization. Many cats, particularly the more daring cat breeds, like being in the water. Cats are leisure creatures who spend their days lazing around like absolute divas.
So, it’s easy to see why one Reddit user felt taking a kitten to the beach for a Christmas Day trip would be a smart idea. It could be the sand in her claws or the obnoxious seagulls, but this cat has had enough! Cats retain grudges, and you know the owner will be subjected to that steely cat glare for the next month.
Take It as a Hint!
Limiting your time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., is the best method to avoid skin damage. When going to the beach, though, you’ll have to fight the sun. This guy discovered the hard way that if you want anything done well, you have to do it yourself.
He sat down on the beach after asking his father to get the sunscreen, only to be handed this unmistakable Febreze air freshener! “What, I’m not a skincare expert; I should have asked your mom,” Dad might have yelled. In truth, this was most likely only a poorly disguised recommendation from his father to his son. Get the picture?
Michael Calva’s Mysteries
If you’re like the majority of people, you’ll buy a kite, fly it about, and hope it stays in the sky. However, after doing some study for this blog, we discovered that there are a few tactics that will help your kite go airborne, remain aloft, and hopefully not impale anybody on the way down to earth. Michael Calva is a typical person who enjoys simple pleasures like going for a walk on the beach and flying his faithful kite in a strong headwind.
But nothing Michael has ever done could possibly have prepared him for this. “Fell into a trash can after running backwards trying to get a kite to fly.” Michael, a garbage can. There are so many questions, and there isn’t enough time to answer them all. How did he end up there? What was the size of the can? Is there a gruesome scar on his body? Michael, if you’re out there, the world wants to know!
Sis, You Are Correct!
There’s nothing quite like a day at the beach to unwind. The beach and ocean provide limitless opportunities for leisure, recreation, and, most importantly, amusing photographs. Beachgoers all across the world have engaged in some wild antics, many of which have been documented in photographs. It takes a bit to figure out what’s humorous about this image, but once you do, it’s gold!
u/iamnotajeep, a Reddit member, provided this amusing beach photo from a day when she felt so fantastic that her ponytail flexed! The photo is more of a beach with ambitions than a beach fail! Existing as a winner isn’t simple, but this girl proves that when you get that nice summer vibe, it pervades every fiber of your being. Yes, dear sis!
We’ve returned to Thailand for a classic instance of a well-intentioned vacation snap gone awry! When a young guy and his friend were on vacation, they were caught on video in an awkward scenario while attempting to use a swing on a beach. They sat on the same piece of wood, which was roped to two of the upper corners.
Warning signs should be posted on those massive swings, such as “Please do not swing if you’ve imbibed more than three fishbowl drinks!” When it comes to respect, the person on the right appears to have kept his cool, which is more than can be said for dopey Daniel on the left. Don’t upload the nighttime photographs if this is what happened throughout the day!
Faux-Pas de Fashion
We’ve all experienced our share of awkward experiences at the beach. While embarrassing mistakes like slipping and falling in front of everyone or stepping in dog feces are hilarious, sometimes all it takes is putting on the incorrect attire. Anyone who says everything goes on the beach has obviously never met this man!
Let’s put the sunburn aside for a moment and consider why pairing two contrasting tropical designs in the same outfit is such a bad idea. Just pick one, Jack! When worn alone, a Hawaiian shirt screams “fun time party dude” or “cool uncle,” but when paired with flower print shorts, it screams “serial murderer.” This is an egregious fashion faux pas!
We Are Not Afraid
Warning signs are typically placed to provide useful pointers and do not warrant much further attention, but because the person who placed them may not have anticipated such a blunder, they may end up being more prominent, particularly when it comes to the beach and the incredible love for the waves. For most individuals, the mere prospect of encountering a huge shark is enough to make them avoid entering the water.
These folks obviously aren’t as scared as the average Joe. When there were rumors of sharks swimming near shore, this beach posted a notice alerting beachgoers that they were entering the water at their own risk. However, it appears that visitors to this crowded beach ignored the notice and took their chances in the sea.
If You Don’t Have a Cow, You’re Out of Luck
There are times in an animal’s life when they, like humans, prefer to spend time near the shore, where they may relax and be happy for several hours. As the summer season approaches, animals are gearing up to spend hot summer days on the beach with their loved ones. It is not unusual to observe these animals at the beach.
Perhaps you’ll come across a few crabs, a hungry bird, or perhaps someone’s pet dog. Farm animals, on the other hand, are less likely to be seen. Nonetheless, this photo demonstrates that spotting a cow while tanning isn’t completely out of the question. This individual must have gone to great lengths to transport their cows to the beach for a change of scenery.
The Rules Are the Rules
Aquatic safety signs are commonly used to warn potential users about risks such as strong currents (rips), submerged rocks, and harmful aquatic creatures. These signs aid in offering recommendations on how beachgoers should act. You can almost always assume that if there’s a sign declaring a regulation anywhere, it’s for a good cause.
However, this does not guarantee that individuals will listen as attentively as they should. A pipe ran parallel to the coast at this beach. As a result, officials took care to put up a notice warning people not to play on or near the pipe. Despite this, we see beach tourists creating a seat out of the pipe in this photograph.
Dive Right In
When holidaymakers come to the beach, scuba diving is one of their favorite activities. This is an excellent way to see the ecosystems that thrive beneath the surface of the water. A backwards roll is one of the most common techniques to enter the water when diving, especially from a boat. You sit on the edge of the boat, full gear on, regulator in your mouth, and roll backwards off the boat, holding your equipment in place.
You’ll be ready to go with a good or negative entrance after rolling in the water in this manner. To dive properly, you must have the proper equipment to ensure that you can breathe safely. It’s wise to avoid attempting to utilize handmade equipment, especially in this man’s instance. The contraption on his back, if you haven’t noticed, isn’t an oxygen tank at all—it’s a propane tank!
Dressed for Success?
It’s summertime, which means it’s time to turn up the heat in your warm-weather wardrobe. If you believe a “beach wardrobe” merely consists of your favorite bikini and a basic cover-up, think again. While it’s difficult to go wrong with bikinis and swim trunks, certain pieces of clothing are always considered beachwear.
A skirt or a pair of cargo shorts can also be tailored to suit. When she went to the beach, this woman adopted a more formal demeanor. She’s dressed up in a dress and tights, and she’s accessorized with a stylish handbag. The most terrifying aspect of her ensemble, though, is the prospect of walking on the wet sand in heels!
First the Comfort
When going to the beach, many people bring something to sit on, typically a blanket, towel, or beach chair. Perhaps an umbrella to shield their heads from the hot sun. Sand is relaxing, but not as relaxing as a sofa. This resourceful man decided to go to the beach and use his newly acquired relaxation skills. As a result, he naturally brought the ideal item for the occasion: a sofa with a pull-out mattress!
This is brilliant for many reasons, the most important of which is that they won’t get sand all over their clothing by sitting on a couch! Drinks may also be rested on the armrests, and the pull-out mattress can be used for ultimate laziness. But there’s one thing I’m curious about: how did this guy get the sofa down to the beach?
When this woman posed for these photos on the beach, she brought an odd prop with her. She took her laptop, as well as her sunglasses, to sit in the surf. The only issue is that technology and water are notorious for not getting along. If her laptop functioned before the photoshoot, it’s virtually guaranteed that it won’t work again now. This is especially apparent because her laptop is nearly submerged in this photo.
It makes no difference what brand you have or how long the producers promise it will last. It might be destroyed by a hard swim in the water or a fall at an incorrect angle. Beach trips are particularly risky for your gadgets, not just because of the sea, but also because of the sand, which can quickly block sockets and ports and scratch Gorilla Glass and aluminum.
A Little Panic
Cats who are terrified of water are a popular cliche. Dogs, on the other hand, are typically delighted to jump in and play. This puppy’s first trip to the beach did not go as well as his owners had hoped. This puppy was clinging to the shore for dear life rather than going in the water. You can even see the traces on the sand behind him where he dragged his paws to delay the trek to the waves.
However, before going to any beach, make sure that dogs are permitted. Some beaches allow dogs only during particular seasons of the year or in specified sections, and most require leashes. You can find out if the beach you’re going to is dog-friendly by browsing online or looking for signs when you get there.
Taking a Stand Against the Current
You’ve heard it before vacation is a time to unwind. For many, this entails a day at the beach. Swimming, boating, mingling with nature, photographing people falling on their faces… there’s much to do. If you know where to look, a day at the beach with your camera may sometimes result in some amusing images. Many individuals spend time standing in the surf. It’s a peaceful hobby that allows you to spend a pleasant day off in the sun.
This individual decided to take it a step further by executing a headstand in front of the water. It’s quite remarkable. After all, pulling this off demands a great deal of muscle and balance. However, he might have wanted to time it differently because his head is entirely buried in this photo!
Buried in the Wrong Place
It’s not unusual to see someone buried in the sand when visiting the beach. This is an activity that appears to never go out of favor for both children and adults. Remember going to the beach every summer and your older cousins insisting that being buried up to your neck in sand would be a blast? And they didn’t imply that everyone would have a good time.
However, you must use caution when doing so. You can get caught in the crossfire of other beach activities if you’re in the wrong position and can’t relocate. While he’s buried in the sand and a football fly his way, this guy clearly missed the memo and is regretting his decision.
Presidents Are Not Immune
Summertime entails lounging on the beach, devouring mountains of ice cream, and acquiring a luscious tan. Unfortunately, some users discovered that suntan lotion had certain negative side effects. Bad luck and beach enjoyment generally result in unpleasant situations. You might believe that beach failures are confined to the average guy.
After all, we don’t get to watch prominent individuals make common blunders very frequently. Bill Clinton, on the other hand, had his own beach debacle while serving as president! The former president chose to play football while on vacation at a beach. When the football was tossed his way, he had an intriguing method of catching it.
Having fun on the beach is as natural a phenomenon as any we can think of, but we’re more fascinated by the fact that every year, swarms of beautiful females make their way there, barely covered in little threads of cloth. However, when the females get a dog like this, things get much more intriguing. It’s no surprise, therefore, that this little boy and his owners needed a day at the beach.
Even on off days, you must keep a close eye on a puppy to ensure that they do not get into mischief. We’re hoping this mom grabbed her puppy before he ripped off her bathing suit top. This rambunctious pooch was only trying to entertain himself by playing with the dangling threads—he didn’t intend to disgrace his mother!
Better to Be Safe Than Sorry
For most families, summertime means going to the beach. Beaches are a wonderful location to relax. While there, it’s critical to ensure the protection of your young children. Swimming in the water and splashing in the waves are two of the most enjoyable aspects of going to the beach. The ocean, on the other hand, may be a perilous environment.
When this individual brought their family to the beach, they were well aware of this. Rather than plunging into the water, they went to the trouble of bringing a kiddie pool to the beach. On the plus side, it had to be simple to fill, and kids still got to play in the sand!
How to Take a Sunbath
Aside from the perfect mix of sun, sand, and sea, there’s one other thing beachgoers can’t live without throughout the summer: sun-kissed skin. Lying back and soaking up the sun is one of the most relaxing things to do on the beach. You can even take a nap if you remember to apply sunscreen.
You need sunscreen because being in the sun without anything to protect your skin from the damaging UV rays is risky. Here are a few recommendations for good natural tanning to ensure you get sun-kissed rather than sunburned. This woman took a different approach to self-defense. She concealed herself from the sun by napping under sweaters and towels. A clever solution if she forgot the sunscreen!
Time for a Snack
Taking photographs of your meals to share on social media is a reasonably widespread habit. This guy simply wanted to show off the frozen dessert they were eating while standing on a beach. A lovely, refreshing ice cream cone is the perfect snack for a beach day. Beachgoers enjoy ice cream, which is why there appears to be an ice cream vendor at nearly every prominent beach. But what if you lose track of your frozen treat for a fraction of a second? The end effect is almost never what people expect.
Obviously, this isn’t precisely the case. Instead, a seagull came to grab a chunk of her lunch just as she was shooting a photo. It managed to damage both the food and the image in the process. Although, in some ways, the timing of this photograph could not be better. In one fell swoop, this bird damaged both the meal and the shot. What an excellent achievement!
Most people who go to the beach do not anticipate encountering animals. There could be a few seagulls about. A stingray or jellyfish, perhaps. In general, individuals do not notice anything unusual. Residents of Drakes Beach, California, were taken aback when their gorgeous coastline was inundated by these strange and wonderful animals.
A violent storm is said to have swept away their sandy houses, leaving them exposed for everyone to see. These plump innkeeper worms, sometimes known as “penis fish,” are food for seals, sharks, and seagulls and have a closely related relative that is a delicacy in South Korea and Japan. To each their own, but these appear to be rather tough to digest!
Twice Bitten, Twice Shy!
It’s no surprise that most dogs adore the seaside. They go crazy as soon as they smell the salty wind and want to rush about for hours. However, dogs may be tough to manage, and this beach had a message to deliver. Another graphic sign, this one from a Thai beach, leaves little to the imagination.
Aside from the usual concern of dogs defecating, the vicious Thai dogs swarming this beach appear vulnerable to a very unpleasant attack! If it has happened frequently enough to warrant a sign, it may be prudent to close the beach. Perhaps this is the source of the fat innkeeper worms seen washed up on the beach in California!
Laura Has Had Enough!
Summer is here, which means it’s time to get in the car and go to the beach for some sun, surf, and sand. But there’s something you should think about before you park your automobile on the beach. Laura had to leave her car on the beachfront and walk a mile to get to the office because she couldn’t find a parking spot.
Her ride is coated in sand, and she probably just wants to get home and watch Netflix. But hold on! There’s more! Women don’t enjoy it when they’re catcalled, especially when they’re on their own property! If you want to impress Laura, be a gentleman and brush the sand off next time, or simply leave her car alone.
Hammock 1 – Stepf 0
Taking the family to the beach might result in lifetime memories if all members of the family are happy. Stepf Wolff, a Twitter user, simply wanted to post a nice photo of herself having the time of her life while on vacation with her family and friends. Hammocks, on the other hand, are a difficult beast to manage, as this funny shot demonstrates!
You will face-plant into the sand if you try to pose and snap a “cute photo” in a hammock. The creator of the hammock must have known they were dangerous but still made them! Nonetheless, the sand face-plant makes this the definition of a beach flop. Stepf 0, Hammock 1—but thanks for playing!
The beach is a fantastic location. The sun is shining! You’ve got the wind in your hair! You can feel the sand between your toes! Reading a book while lying on the sand and listening to the waves crash nearby is one of the most calming activities. When this Reddit user’s partner tried to persuade him to take a romantic photo on Instagram, he had other ideas, as this funny montage demonstrates!
Her realization that her immaculate set-up had been hijacked by a devious boyfriend is obvious. Others quickly pointed out that both the photographer and the person in the water were wearing full footwear. In fact, destroying a decent pair of Nikes should be punished with a dunk!
Only You Hold the Key!
There’s a reason why you’re given rubber wristbands to keep track of your locker key at the pool, as Max G’s friend discovered the hard way! His funny tweet tells the story of a snorkeling trip gone wrong. “While snorkeling with a friend, he discovered a house key in the water. He grabbed it up and tossed it, saying, “Some fool misplaced his key.”
“He recognized it was his key when I left him off at his residence.” The logical conclusion of this situation would be a reenactment of childhood swimming lessons, in which the two must return in their pajamas and dive for the key at the bottom of the ocean! This is a true classic!
Henry, Get Up!
Everyone has that one buddy who, regardless of what anybody says, refuses to apply sunscreen. They’ll remark, “I just need to get my foundation tan down,” as they lie out in the sun at lunchtime. It’s never a good idea to lie in the sun without sunscreen, especially if you’re starting to feel tired. That lesson was learned the hard way by one unlucky beachgoer.
So, Henry, wake up! I hate to break it to you, but that brilliant hue of lobster and beetroot isn’t going to wow the ladies at the beach bar later. That has to hurt! You can only imagine how uncomfortable stepping into the shower with a sunburn this red would be. Use sunscreen to be safe!
Parenting Is Difficult
Are you planning a beach vacation for Spring Break? Perhaps you’re near enough to visit over the weekend? A day at the beach with a small child isn’t always just that. Twitter user Alyssa Vieira lined up her kids to take a pleasant Christmas photo to share with her family, but her youngest had a full-blown tantrum. Unfazed, she made the most of the situation by turning it into beach fail comedy gold.
“I had hoped to obtain a great shot of my two boys playing, but the youngest chose to have a full-fledged tantrum.” Her tweet made a lot of people giggle, while others praised her for her clever comment in the sand. No one appears to have taken her up on her offer, so this will be saved for the graduation photo slideshow!
You Do You, Pelican!
Isn’t it true that everyone enjoys going to the beach? When we’re not at the beach, we’re daydreaming about it and researching beach ideas in preparation for our next beach holiday. Is there anything to be concerned about on the next visit, though? There’s something to be said about a creature who understands what it’s doing and isn’t hesitant to tell the rest of the world.
This guy wants us to know who his actual foe is: idiots. Pelicans have been known to consume animals; thus this is a case of “trust them when they show you what they are!” Tourists who are seen creeping closer with their cameras should take note of the warning!
Allow Everything to Escape!
There are various causes for children’s weeping, but it’s typically strong sensations of happiness or despair that cause the tears to flow. As much as adults dislike to see kids crying, children rapidly learn that sobbing, meltdowns, and temper tantrums elicit a response from their parents, and they can start crying in a dramatic manner at any time. Pylar Eaton shared this amusing snapshot of her son amid what appears to be a deluge of pee-related humor.
Nature called, and when you have to go, you have to leave, but it appears that the unfortunate little boy didn’t get the message. “My youngster had to go to the bathroom. I advised him to just get into the water — not exactly what I was implying.” Aren’t folks aware that the beach has restrooms? Those who profess not to urinate in the water but do so discreetly are, in many ways, worse. At the very least, this tiny tyke wasn’t trying to hide it!
Everyone should learn how to keep themselves safe in the water, sand, and sun. Many dangers lurk on the beach and in the water. Find out what visual clues you might look for on your favorite beaches. It’s not simply the large waves that cause problems. There are riptides, lightning, poisonous algae, sharks, and jellyfish and man-of-war stings to contend with. It’s the big one, the one everyone has been anticipating.
Put your hands together, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, for the winner of the 2020 Most Accurate Sign of the Year award (drumroll please) … It’s a falling rock! The irony of this beach disaster should be noted since not only did the rocks all around it fall from the cliff’s top, but the sign itself also collapsed. It should have paid more attention to itself, clearly!
Life’s Always a Beach
Are you going to the beach with your new puppy for the first time? You may be eager to take him when the weather warms up, but you may be unsure of what to expect. Going to a dog-friendly beach could bring up some new questions: Where do you think you should go? What do you think you should bring?
Some adore dogs on the beach, while others are attracted to the beach itself. It’s unclear why this dog’s owner thought burying him in sand would be a good idea, but he’s throwing a lot of shade. This poor dog has to watch all of the other dogs romp about in the sand, and he appears to be plotting his vengeance. This owner had best be ready for a few surprises hidden beneath the carpet!
Please, Don’t Forget About the Children!
A beach day can be defined in a variety of ways. For some, it may mean trying out a new surfboard or performing some early morning yoga on the shore. For others, it’s hiding behind an umbrella from direct UV radiation while reading a new book. However, while beach days are wonderful no matter what you have planned, choosing a fashionable outfit can be difficult at times.
Sacha Baron Cohen’s films are comic gold, works of pure genius with funny characters that have astonished and thrilled audiences all over the world. The Borat mankini, on the other hand, should never have made it past the planning phases! These days, it seems like you can’t go to the beach without seeing a guy in one of these lime-colored Lycra monstrosities. We get that you’re the comic in your group but can someone please think about the kids?!
Sand Isn’t a Healthy Snack!
When you’ve had a fantastic time and aren’t ready for it to stop, you know what I’m talking about. Yes, this dog represents all of us. Ninja recently returned from the beach, where he had the time of his life, and he does not want it to stop. When his family calls for him to go, he not only runs back into the water for one final plunge, but he also begins squalling like a small kid in protest at the injustice of it all.
More dog days come as this Reddit user discusses his first trip to the beach with his puppy. According to him, it took him approximately 2 minutes to consume enough sand to realize he shouldn’t eat the stuff. The puppy’s joy at the seemingly never-ending supply of food quickly turned to contempt. However, it is better to learn from your mistakes, and some children may take a long time to realize that sand is not food.
The Irish Fortune
You may find yourself drawn to the beach on days when the sun is shining brightly and the breeze is brisk. A beach day is generally a fun-filled day because there are so many things to choose from. You may either relax on the sand with a book and a drink in hand, or you can let your imagination run wild and do things you wouldn’t normally do when strolling down the beach.
This beautiful, sunny day on Dublin’s Portmarnock Beach was caught by a man who didn’t see the man passed out on the grass until he got home and looked at the photo on his computer! We understand that a beautiful day like this is rare in Ireland, so we’re not shocked that the photographer didn’t see him, but could someone kindly fetch that man a glass of water and a bacon sandwich?
