Additionally, I've compiled some tips for giving a good beach party and provided videos that will teach you how to dance the hula and make beautiful tropical napkin decorations. There's also a beach party poll. Please scroll down to see all of these, plus the terms of use for the invitations.


1. Please read the Terms of Use below before downloading.

This will cause a window to open containing a larger version. If you use a PC, right-click with your mouse to save the invitation art to your hard drive. If you use a Mac, control-click the image to pull up the option to save it.

Fun Beach Party Ideas

Having a beach party, BBQ or luau opens up all kinds of opportunities for beach-related fun:

Sandcastle building contest: Make sure to bring plastic buckets, molds and shovels for everyone, plus a kitchen timer, if you want to restrict the time.

Frisbee-throwing or kite flying: Get there early and stake out enough room to play without running into people.

Limbo contest: All you need is a pole or a foam "noodle to make this a fun activity for everyone.

Volleyball: Check to see if there's a sand volleyball court available near the party spot and reserve it in advance if you can.

Hula dancing: See the video to the right for detailed instructions for doing the hula. If your guests don't know how to do it, you can teach them!

Scavenger hunt: Make a list of items not normally found on the beach and ask your guests to find them. Whoever comes back first with everything wins.


Don't want to haul a bunch of prizes out to the beach? Try virtual versions, such as Amazon or other email gift cards, Kindle kids books, or even non-virtual items that can be shipped from online sources. Just capture the winners' email addresses with your phone and send the prizes after you get home!

Basic Beach Party Supplies

Here are some basics for your guest's safety and comfort:

  • One or more life preservers
  • Suntan lotion and block with varying SPF
  • Plenty of water (no matter how many other drink types you have)
  • Umbrellas and sand chairs
  • Extra towels
