I love playing board games on the beach with my family because it gives me a chance to relax and enjoy time together.
There is no better way to spend some quality time than by chilling out with your friends or your loved ones!
I love playing board games on the beach because it reminds me of when I was younger and we used to play outside all day long, even if it meant getting dirt all over our clothes or scraping our knees!
You can also take your favorite beach game with you on vacation and make new memories!
11 Best Beach Board Games To Play
This piece shall discuss the 11 best board games to play on the beach. They include;
The first game on our list is the venerable classic board game, Stratego. This game is fun for all ages and comes in a handy portable size box, making it an ideal game to bring with you on your travels.
You can play it on the beach or in the park. It is a simple game but a lot of fun! Strategy games are the most common board games people play at the beach.
Chess is the classic board game that has been played for centuries. It is played between two people who have a set of chess pieces. Each player has a king, queen, bishop, knight, rook, and pawn.
The goal of the game is for the player who is white to checkmate the player who is black. That is done by having the white king move one square in any direction until it is trapped against one of the black pieces.
When this happens, the black king is checkmated, and the game ends in a win for the white player.
Checkers is also known as draughts or board chez nous. Beach checkers is a game of deduction rather than pure strategy like chess. It is played on a board with a 64 square grid.
A player takes a piece and places it on any unoccupied square on each turn. Then, he attempts to “castle” (block) all of his opponent’s pieces.
After that, the player must take any of his opponent’s pieces within jumping distance and remove them from the board. The first player to remove all of his opponent’s pieces wins the game.
Canasta is a deceptively simple game. You will need a full deck of playing cards, a 4 x 5 index card, a pen or pencil, and a piece of paper.
The object of the game is to be the first player to get rid of all of their cards by playing them down from the stock onto the play area. A card played down cannot be countered or stopped in any way.
5. Connect 4
That is one of the simplest board games to play at the beach. You will need a deck of playing cards, a few paper cups or plastic plates, and some wooden or bamboo sticks.
The goal of the game is to be the first player to form a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line of four connected cards. Then, all of your connected cards are removed from the board, and you score 3 points when you do this.
Backgammon is a top-rated board game that 2 or more players can play. Each player controls a set of dice and a set of counters. The object of the game is for the player with the highest score at the end of the game.
You win points by rolling your dice and moving your counters. Surprisingly enough, backgammon is considered both a game of skill and chance. That means that the game’s outcome very much depends on how good your dice are.
The Hive objective is the first player to build up a structure of five cubes high. After you have built your structure, your opponent then tries to one-up you by building a six-cubed high structure.
The first player to reach this goal wins the game. You can win the game by knocking down your opponent’s structure.
8. Giant tic tac toe
That is another great board game that you can play at the beach. The game is easy to learn but difficult to master. You can just draw it on the beach with a stick or buy a dedicated unit.
The game’s goal is for each player to be the first to get three of their respective counters in a row, column, or diagonal line on the game’s play area. Each counter on your side represents a player.
Abalone is a simple tile-matching game. You will need a deck of playing cards, a set of wooden tiles (each with a different pattern), and a few paper cups or plastic plates. The goal of the game is to be the first player to get 4 of a kind on their side of the board.
Next, you remove all of your matching tiles from the play area and score 3 points when you do this.
War is a very exciting board game. You will need a deck of playing cards, a few paper cups or plastic plates, and some wooden or bamboo sticks. The way you play war is by dividing you’re playing area into thirds.
Then, each player lays down three rows of counters, one row overlapping the other two. Then, each player places three dice next to their respective rows of counters.
Monopoly is another popular family-friendly board game that is also a great beach game. 2 or more people can play it. If you are playing with more than one person, you will need several sets of playing pieces.
When playing Monopoly on the beach, you should try to pick a spot where the waves are not too high, and the wind not too strong. In fact, it might be more of a ‘digital’ game to play on a large iPad.
You see, when the dice determine whether or not you get to move or buy property, you will have to take the tokens off the board and throw them into the sea if the wave height is too high.
Board games are a great way to spend quality time with your family and friends. They provide great opportunities for bonding and working together as a team. I love playing board games on the beach with my family, because it is a fun way to spend time together.

Hi, I’m Ryan Nelson! I live in the Hamptons, out on Long Island, near Ponquogue Beach. The beach is a place where I can find peace and serenity. It’s a place where I can sit and clear my head. The waves crashing on the shore somehow helps me to relax, while also reminding me that I am far from the stressors of daily life.
