Beach IdeasSummer holidays and trips to the seaside don’t have to be all about lazing about in the sun and soaking up some rays. You can still top up your tan while getting stuck into some action-packed activities to really make the most of your break by the coast. Whether you’re staying close to home and exploring Britain’s coastlines or heading abroad for some guaranteed sunshine, beaches and the surrounding areas offer some thrill-a-minute experiences for you to try to ensure a holiday experience you will savour. So if you want to try something different this summer here are five of the top activities you have to try:

Kite buggy riding
Flying a kite is always a winning activity for families, especially on some of Britain’s windswept beaches. But add in a four wheeled buggy and a monster sized kite and you’ve got some truly high speed fun to enjoy. Kite buggy lessons will ensure you know what you are doing and have you kitted out with all the essential safety gear as your kite pulls you along the sand at speeds of up to 50mph.

The latest adventure craze which is really helping people see the coast in a completely new light, turning it from a mere photo opportunity into an adventure playground. Groups are led round by expert instructors as they climb, crawl, jump, dive and swim their way around secret beauty spots, caves and secret coves for a wet and wild day out.

Take to the water
Don’t just lie on the beach staring out at the water, get out there and enjoy it. For a white knuckle thrill ride there are plenty of powerful machines to help you hit high speeds on the water. But if you want to combine speed with a hint of luxury then booking a trip on board a classic speedboat gives you the chance to enjoy the thrill of the ride with some more serene sightseeing and the chance to sip champagne as you sit back and soak in the views far from the crowded sand.

The ultimate beach sport, the timeless appeal of surfing show no signs of waning and if you’ve always dreamed of riding the waves then you’ll be pleased to know it’s more accessible than ever before. Britain boasts some exceptional surfing beaches and lessons or beginner surfer camps are an affordable and incredibly fun way to get you out on the water and standing up on your board in no time. Surf lesson vouchers or training sessions make great gift ideas for holidaymakers with a sense of adventure too.

One of most relaxing ways to enjoy the marine life around you, taking a boat out to sea and trying to catch your own lunch will give you a great sense of satisfaction too. There are all sorts of trips and activities available to cater for all abilities and tastes, from fly fishing at the harbour to boarding a professional fishing boat and heading out to deep water. Whether you catch anything or not it will give you a new found appreciation for the other world under the sea.
