What's so great about going to the beach?

Ok, I know it probably is jsut me but i dont undertsand the great thing about going to the beach, I love looking at it and walking there with the nice sun and cool breeze. But actually going in it? I dont know, I live in San Diego and the beaches aren't as clean as they one may thinks. They're always polluted etc....
and its not fun for me going in there,
everyone else loves it

I do, however, love going down in Southern Baja in the bays in Sea of Cortez....clean, clear, warmer water, no waves, secluded beaches with wonderful scenary.. i guess the waves, crowds, are a turn off

I spy the angry smilie...



I don't like sunbathing on the beach. It's one of those things which always looks so good on TV but then I really don't enjoy once I get there. Possibly because it's so packed and don't like busy places. Possibly because I don't like exposing my body and can't get away with wearing jeans. Possibly because i'm just boring.
I used to enjoy swimming in the sea, but Bournemouth beachwater has gone downhill in recent years

It always gets in your food.
Who can forget the sand grains that go crunch as you bite into your tasty lunch.

Honoring my reputation in this forum, I will say that what is great about going to the beach are...




Chicks in bikini.









Seriously speaking, I happen to like doing nothing... and if you can do it under the sun, and with the sound of the waves in the background... even better.

i personally hate the beach. the hot sand burning my feet. and when you get to the water and dip your feet in and go back to the sand, your feet get all brown and nasty and the sand clings onto your skin.

but the good things are that the scenery is nice and just the thought of it is fun.

unfortunately there aren't many good beaches around here in chicago, because.. THERE'S NO OCEAN. and I love the ocean. i hate lakes.

Growing up on the beach has made me a fan of it. I guess it's just a thing from childhood, but I absolutely love it.

Not easy to find beaches in Texas though. Never been to Corpus or Padre, and Galveston is naaaasty.

i hate the beach.

i hate the heat, i hate the crowds, i hate seeing people all over the place in atrocious, ill-fitting bathing suits. plus my skin is so pale that i'm a human reflector, and i'd prefer to skip skin cancer.

i can make an exception for the beach at night, though.

I love the beach, but then again, I grew up in the Mediterranean. There is something so special about that scent of sea salt in the air, the waves crashing against the sand and then receding again, the sun and the shade and the ever present breeze.

Oh, to be in Negril right now...

Ive lived on the oregon coast my whole life
The beach excited me when I left for 3 months and then came back
I used to go jump in the freezing ass cold ocean during the winter it was awesome
and surfing is a blast
But I dont wear bathing suits so the beach kinda sucks for me
You know that pic of bono on the beach fully clothed in black? yeah....thats me
