Fun Beach Activities for the Family

Are you and your family coming to Sanibel Island for vacation? We at Blind Pass Condominiums can tell you all about the fun beach activities the whole family can do. When staying with us in one of our Sanibel Island vacation rentals, you will be close to where the fun can happen. Let’s look below at a few of the fun beach activities for the family.

Let’s Hunt for Treasure

Fun Beach Activities for the Family

This is an activity the whole family will want to get in on. Before leaving your condo for the day at the beach, you will want to take a piece of paper and draw up a treasure map and have a bucket for the whole family. Then you will want to go out onto the beach and hunt for your treasure. The kids can look for different color shells, something blue, driftwood and more. One the map, have a list of the items that they can find and mark them off as you find them. This is a fun activity to do and something that everyone in the family will love doing!

Sandcastle Building

Anytime you visit the beach, one of the things that each child will build is a sandcastle. So naturally this is a fun activity that the family can enjoy building together. To help build their sandcastles you are going to make sure that everyone has a bucket, shovel and shells to build their dream sandcastle. Take a picture of each sandcastle that was built and save it to give to the kids when they become parents.

Play Ball

Fun Beach Activities for the Family

Playing any kind of game on the beach is fun for everyone in the family. Brining a soccer ball on your next vacation to Sanibel Island will allow you to bond even more. Here you can break up into different teams or you can pass the ball back and forth to each other. No matter what you do with the soccer ball, you get to bond a little more with each family member.

Beach Ball Volleyball

Another fun activity that your family can do is play beach ball volleyball. This game is played just like regular volleyball, but instead you use a beach ball. Playing with a beach ball can be completely different than with a volleyball. The ball is much lighter than a regular volleyball and so if there is any wind, it may not go the way you want it to. But no matter what you play with the beach ball, it will be fun either way.

There are many other fun activities that the family can do together while on vacation, but these are the few we wanted to share. If you still haven’t made your Sanibel Island vacation plans yet, now is the time. We hope to see you and your family soon making new memories to last a lifetime!
