Whether you’re catching a sunrise on the beach or relaxing after a long day of exploring, getting off of your feet and unwinding on the beach is one of the best parts of vacation. The only thing that makes relaxing on the beach better is doing it in a comfortable, reclining beach lounger that's been delivered straight to your vacation rental home.
Elevated a bit off the sand and reclined for ultimate comfort, beach loungers can be a major upgrade to your beach experience. And while you’re kicked back and relaxed on the beach, here are 18 things you can do without even getting up!
1. Ask your sweetie to get you a drink
Stay put and ask your love to bring you something fruity. Or some ice cold water. Either way, you sit and let someone take care of you for a minute!2. Take pictures of your kids in the sand
Kids are only so little for a while, and soon these moments will be memories. Snap candid shots of your kids playing together, splashing in the waves or building sandcastles. And don’t forget to get in some of the shots too!3. Post pictures of your kids playing in the sand to make everyone jealous
Take a few cute ones and post to social media. Don’t forget to get the classic shot of your toes in the sand and your kids playing nicely. Make your friends and family wish they were relaxing on a beach lounger too.4. Read
Bring a good book and get lost in it. A beach lounger is the ideal reading spot, and can be a great way to relax at the beach!
Ever wonder why beach loungers offer a multitude of different reclining positions? So that you can get in the most comfortable seat available and fall asleep to the sound of the waves!6. Check emails
We don’t recommend spending too much time on work-related stuff, but if you absolutely have to respond to a work email, what better place to do it than from your warm spot on the beach?7. Listen to music
Put in your headphones, hit “play” on your pre-set beach tunes playlist, and jam out to the music that will make you tap your sandy toes!8. Talk your sweetie without kids interrupting
Take advantage of distracted kids to have an actual adult conversation with your spouse or friends. Talk about your goals, your dreams, or reminisce about fond memories. Use this uninterrupted time to get into a great conversation with the people you love the most.9. People watch
There’s no better spot to people watch than at the beach. Put on your sunglasses, sit back in your lounger and admire (or question) the bathing suit choices of your fellow beachgoers.10. Bury your toes in the sand
There is something oddly satisfying about watching your toes disappear into the white sand. Does burying your toes in the sand count as a workout?11. Work on your tan
Lather on the sunscreen and let the sun do its thing. Sit back in your lounger and add a little color to your skin. Don’t forget to reapply all day though, no sunburns for you!12. Enjoy snacks
Prop the perfectly-packed cooler right up next to you so when all of the relaxing makes you hungry you can just lean over, open the lid and enjoy the beach snacks you packed.13. Meditate
If you visit the beach at a slow and quiet part of the day, you can sit back in your lounger and meditate, pray or do self-reflecting. The sounds of the waves and the birds, the smell of the ocean, and the feeling of the coarse sand under your feet can create a calm environment for some quiet time.14. Take a selfie
If you go to the beach and don’t take a selfie, did you even really go to the beach?15. Put your phone away
While you want to capture your precious vacation memories on camera, it’s important not to experience the whole vacation looking at a screen. Tuck your phone in a beach bag, and if you’re feeling brave, put it somewhere where you can’t reach it from your lounger so you won’t be tempted “just to check.”16. Play tic tac toe in the sand
Simple things like playing games in the sand are great ways to connect with your family without even having to get up.17. Judge a sand castle building contest
Channel your inner judge and give pointers and feedback to the sand castle architects in your family. If you just can’t stand it, get up and get involved. You won’t regret it.18. Write a letter
Bust out the pen and paper and write a letter, old school. Write a letter to your kids as you watch them play, or pen a sweet note to a friend or family member to let you know you’re thinking about them.
