If you are looking for a great way to spend Easter, then head to the beach! The fun and excitement are non-stop and family-friendly. If proximity permits, a day trip or weekend getaway give you time for exploring. And there’s also the likelihood that you’ll make new friends with people who share your interests.

Here are five fun ideas to celebrate Easter at the beach:

1. Hang out at the beach or pool

Bury in sand

This sounds pretty simplistic, but there’s so much to do around the water—swim, surf, play games inside or outside the water. Playing sports along the ocean always is a big hit, build sand sculptures, fly a kite, bury your friends in the sand…be creative.

2. Hunt for Easter eggs

Go for the challenge of the hunt: Hide eggs in the sand, dunes, and beach walkways. The Easter Bunny visits the beach, too.  It’s always a good idea to make sure each child finds at least one egg, though.

3. Spend time with your family

A beach trip is about family and friends. Carve out quality time to relax on the deck or balcony and be together. Or go for an evening or morning walk looking for seashells. Start your morning together watching the sun come up. There are plenty of ways to share the beauty and peacefulness of the beach environment—these are the moments that create memories.

4. Surf

Be adventurous: Head out to the waves and try surfing. It is a great way to release stress and get exercise. Plus, it will be something you never forget. Lessons can be found throughout the beach, and other watersports are available like jet skis, banana boat rides and parasailing.

5. Celebrate through sunrise services
