Things to do at the beach (other than swimming)

One of the great things about living at Coral Beach Estate is the proximity to the Winterstrand and the warm Indian Ocean. But for those of us who are not that fond (or even a little apprehensive) of frolicking in the ocean, there are a number of great beach activities that do not involve getting in the water. These include everything from playing catch to searching for seashells. For your convenience, we have included some of the most popular beach pastimes enjoyed by our residents below:

Collecting Seashells

Almost everyone who has visited Winterstrand has at some point walked down the beach and collected seashells along the way. Many of these shells are perfect for use in a craft work and are also great for use in children’s school projects.

Looking for Sea Life

With an abundance of sea and birdlife all around Coral Beach Estate, it should come as no surprise that many hours of fun can be had watching and even cataloguing (if that sort of thing interests you) the sea life around the area.

Enjoying a Picnic

The perennial family favourite! A beach picnic with wholesome food is always a treat for mom, dad and kids alike.

Tossing a Frisbee to One Another

A Frisbee is a must-have for any family that lives near the beach. It is a great way to spend quality time with a friend or sibling and even the dog enjoys playing catch with it!

Playing Beach Cricket

Bring a small ball and bat to play cricket with at the beach. Playing cricket on the beach allows you to make spectacular catches while diving for the ball in shallow water or on the soft sand.

Flying a Kite

An open beach, a nice breeze and a colourful kite add up to the perfect relaxing afternoon for both adults and kids.

Competing at Volleyball

Set up a volleyball net and court on the beach and invite a few friends over for an exciting game of beach volleyball. This is not only a fun and healthy way to pass the time, but is also a great way to get to know your Coral Beach Estate neighbours.

Kicking a Soccer Ball Around

Playing soccer on the beach is a fun way to exercise, and just like volleyball it is a great way to make new friends.

Going Fishing

You can fish from the beach, but the best time to fish is early in the morning or late in the evening as there are fewer people on the beach. This is a great way to spend alone time if you so desire.

Building a Sandcastle

What is a visit to the beach without having a go at building a sandcastle? This is one of the quintessential beach activities and is a great way to bond with the kids.

Sunbathing and Reading

The Winterstrand beach is a great place to relax and read, or if you prefer, simply to work on your tan. Just don’t forget the sunblock!

No matter whether you go to Winterstrand to swim, float in the water, join in a shoreline activity, or just do nothing, there are plenty of things to do while living at Coral Beach Estate.
