I get asked that question a lot.  I’ve been to many of these with my family, some with my wife and some just by myself.  Let me show you my favorites and highlight:
  • Family beaches, beaches for families, couples or just for a stroll
  • Family Beach Restaurants
  • Beach fun
  • Family Friendly Bikini bars
  • Beach Gear List (the list) and bikini shopping
  • Hotels or condos for you and your family on the beach
  • Where to go, what to do and where to stay, all on the water...

Hopefully I can answer your questions on my favorite family beaches, beaches where you can play with your family, relax and have a great day!

What’s a family beach?

Obviously a place where you find Mom, Dad, Kids, Grandma and Grandpa playing in the sun and having a great time together.

Kids love them... teenagers love them... big kids, like me, love them too. How can you not love the beach, sun, water, breeze, animals…watching kids play in the waves, and oh yeah, and most days a girl in a bikini walking the beach.

So grab a towel, some lotion, a book and pick a beach for your family.

Pick a family beach to visit … Click a beach destination from my menu on the left, and dig deeper to find more family beaches, bikini tiki bars, restaurants, beach shopping, what to do and where to go.

Day Trips, if you only have a day for the beach, see my day trips for each of the beaches on the left.

Beach Play, what can you do on family beaches. Volleyball, surfing, snorkeling, skim boarding, bikes, parasailing, fishing, golf carts, scooters … This is where I’ll clue you in to what the available beach activities are.

Family Beach Bars and Restaurants

What’s a Bikini Bar? Bikini bars of course can be found at most family beaches, no need to change into your clothes drag the family off the beach and have some great sea food.  Or if you want, leave the kids (older I hope) behind and sneak off for an afternoon refresher.

Exploring Restaurants on the beach. After a day at the beach, time to hit a local restaurant for some surf food. I typically frequent the more local restaurants and stay away from the chains.

Throw on some shorts, skirt or sundress and/or a cool beach shirt and let’s go restaurant exploring!

Shopping and other stuff for your family

Beach Shopping, need a new bikini for the beach or a kid’s swimsuit? Might want to check our beach gear list to make sure you have everything you need.

Beach store or Bikini stores?

Beach stores have all the beach supplies you might need for a day on the beach.

Bikini stores put girls in bikinis, sorry guys. They usually specialize in the latest bikini fashions. If your thinking about a thong bikini or micro bikini, be aware some bikini beaches may frown upon them. 

Attractions, other stuff to do around the beach. Parks, putt-putt, go-carts museums, theme parks, places to go nearby besides the beach…Take a break at away from the beach at one of these alternative family adventures.

Hotels or Condos, want to spend the night or maybe a week on the beach. Hopefully the details will help with your decision, I also tried to rank them based on price. Let me know what you and your family think of these beach hotels, are they family friendly?

Fishing, on the beach, from the pier or maybe a fishing charter. They seem to fish everywhere. I’m not a big fisherman, but I’ll let you know what I hear. If you don’t have your own fishing gear, we’ll let you know where it can be rented and where you can find bait. Fishing charters can also be hired around many of our family beach areas.

Real Estate on the beach. Did you like the beach, want to buy a place? In my beach visits, I’ve stumbled across some great real estate agents that specialize in beach front rentals. Check out the specific beach pages for a real estate agent in that area.
