You’ve heard it before: vacation is a time to unwind. For some, this entails a day at the beach. Swimming, boating, interacting with wildlife, photographing people falling on their faces… there’s plenty to do. If you know where to look, a day at the beach with your camera can sometimes result in some hilarious beach photos. After all, where people are relaxing, there are bound to be a little too relaxed and possibly intoxicated. So let’s take a look back at some of the most bizarre beach photos. Which of these bizarre beach photos is your favorite?
Keep Your Eye On The Ball!
What happens if you take your father to the beach? He smacks someone in the face! Oh, no. Someone appears to have taken the phrase “keep your eye on the ball” a little too seriously!
Can you find the… “fair”… girl in this picture? Well, there are TWO girls here, and not just one! Although playing hide and seek with her on the beach would be unfair…
You’ve probably seen photos of models in the water, their hair whipped back and creating a lovely whirl of water. Well, we give this good boy a 12 out of 10 for effort because he tried his hardest to imitate those models.
There is no way we can be experts on the topic of tan lines, but if we are lying on the beach in this position, we think we are going to get some awkward tan lines.
That’s Probably Not the Best Method
We know you’re excited to put all that extra space in the bed of your new truck to the test, but we have a feeling it won’t be enough for your boat. These wretched saps didn’t even get to the beach!
Does this statement make more sense to you if it were written this way? It is open to interpretation. The most important thing is never to fly a kite in this area.
Clearly, this hotel resort understands what is important to them. They have complete faith in their check-out speed, we must say. Don’t be concerned about the rapidly approaching tidal wave. We’ll check you out as soon as possible so you don’t drown. We’ve got you covered, fam.
“No, please, Mr. Giant! I swear he’s not the same, Jack! We don’t have your goose!” They appear to be having a great time, but watch out for that bucket; it could take you away!
You’re probably lying if you said you were planning to steal my cute flip-flops, am I right? THINK AGAIN, sucker! To keep them safe, I bought a $20 bike lock!
Why go home when you have a pull-out couch right on the beach? What is the point of paying rent? What is the point of having a job? All of this guy’s problems have been solved.
I Walk a Lonely Road…
A pig needs to be alone with his thoughts from time to time. There are no oinks, mud, or slop… Just a sunset walk on the beach and some time to think about life’s pig problems.
The Pied Piper
The sign stated that you should not feed the SEAGULLS, but it made no mention of the raccoons. As we all know, Raccoons are a common sight at any beach and are nothing to be concerned about. There’s no rabies here!
Don’t Have a Cow!
You’ve probably heard that cows have best friends, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they occasionally enjoy a girls’ day out in the sun. (It appears that this frequently occurs on beaches in India.)
This selfie took them an hour to complete. They had to take three because Turtella didn’t like the face she was making in the first two. (You can’t tell her it’s good enough; she’s overly concerned with her angles.)
Is this a fantastic coincidence or a perfectly posed photo? In any case, this is fantastic, and this young lady should carry this book around with her at all times.
Me Too, Buddy
When we finally get to the beach in the summer, this baby elephant represents every one of us. For what it’s worth, we feel for you, Ellie. Anyway, this baby elephant is much cuter than we are!
‘Can I Take Your Picture?’
The couple, of course, said yes when this sweet older man asked if he could take their picture. He then proceeded to take this up-nostril shot of himself after accidentally flipping the camera the wrong way. “Nailed It!” is all we have to say.
That’s one way to avoid drowning, at the very least… We’re not sure if it’s the air in her head or the buoyancy in her body that keeps her afloat… You get the picture.
Not only did the man in the water nail the pose, but he also managed to position himself in the frame without being blocked by any arms. That is also a very nice bathing suit.
Can’t Get That in Ikea…
There’s no getting around it; everyone knows about sandcastles in the sand, but no one has ever spoken of a “sand couch.” He does, however, appear to be at ease.
A teeny tiny stool is an ideal accompaniment to a teeny tiny nap on the beach, keeping your head out of the grains of teeny tiny sand.
Apply sunscreen BEFORE you start drinking at the beach. (Especially if you’ve consumed what appears to be a full bottle of wine?) You won’t care once you’ve started, and that’s when this happens.
You Got This…
You got this, little gi—… She was having a wonderful day at the beach until she got a mouthful of sand. Let’s hope it doesn’t stop her from sprinting down dunes in the future. Her flop form was spectacular. Nine out of ten times, the landing was successful.
That’s a great way to ensure no one sees what you’re up to at the beach. We’re not saying these guys are smoking… um… doing anything illegal, but the Reddit post was originally shared by a user named Matt Cloudy.
Just for sitting still long enough to allow their owner to do this, this adorable dog deserves ALL THE TREATS. Just take a look at him! He’s so adorable! But what is he, exactly? A butt or face of a dinosaur?
‘Hey, Is It Cool If I Hang Here Awhile?’
It appears that if you leave your doors open at some beaches, baby seals will wander in and relax. (Note to self: Find out where this beach is. Go there. Leave doors open 24/7.)
Pass the Lotion
Assateague Island, which lies between Virginia and Maryland, is famous for the packs of wild ponies that roam the island, which apparently includes sunning on its beaches. Look at that tan! They must have been doing this for a long time to look so good, huh?
On a Lithuanian beach, this is quite the… warning (?) sign. You’d better not pee – at least, that’s what the figure appears to be doing – or you’ll end up on YouTube.
What a Beautiful Wedding!
It’s not every day that you see black ties at a beach wedding. Take a look at all those tuxedos! They even have all of the wedding guests and staff! So cute! Best wishes to the happy couple.
Pose for the Camera
What could be more entertaining than a beach photoshoot with your favorite… um… vape pen? He must have adored his vape pen. He even found an angle for the picture!
This may appear to be a Photoshopped picture, but it’s a real (and fairly common!) occurrence near St. Maarten’s Princess Juliana Airport. The beach is right next to the airport runway, and planes take off and land right above tourists’ heads!
The Sand Queen
How many showers do you think she needed to get the sand – and seaweed – out of her hair? Is she even real, though? Who is she or who created her because she looks so real!
We’ll leave it to the Reddit user to explain what’s going on here: “We took my cat to the beach, and there happened to be a professional dancer having a photoshoot. Obviously, this happened because Buns’ day wasn’t confusing enough.”
Like a Boss
What else is there to say about this image? This guy had better keep an eye on his skin. Because of the sun, it’s becoming wrinkly. But look at how relaxed he is!
Okay, this isn’t funny, but we had to include it because it’s a stunning proposal. How long did it take you to do that?! Angela better say yes, or I’ll do it! I’m kidding, but it’s truly amazing!
A Cat Is a Cat
When it comes to behavior, big jungle cats aren’t all that different from house cats. They will sit in a box if you give them one. If you try to submerge them in water, you’ll see what I mean.
The Chair Is Really Tiny…
It makes no difference who you are or where you are; being confined to a chair is humiliating. This guy had to have known this wasn’t going to end well even before he sat down. Nonetheless, he was a man of immense strength and determination. However, when he attempted to stand up in front of two attractive women, things went horribly wrong. That’s one beach trip this guy will never forget.
An Alternative Floatie
Did you know that tying a bunch of empty soda bottles to your body will make you float like never before? This man went out into the ocean, unable to swim and surrounded by empty bottles, and he was never seen or heard from again. Okay, we don’t know if he was ever in real danger, but we can all agree that this is a ridiculous idea ever.
Best Photobomb Ever?
Expert level of photobombing! This little pooch was sick of seeing all the girls taking selfies together and just wanted to be a part of it. Karen, why can’t he be in the picture? Is it possible that the dog has two tiny human heads growing between his ears? Stranger things have happened in the past…
Is it still a beach photo if you’re only posing as if you’re at the beach? Why is it that this man’s entire life has been a LIE!? They do say that if you think hard enough about something, it will manifest. So perhaps this guy has finally discovered a real beach!
All she wanted was a picture of a cute beach doughnut for Instagram… Instead, she took a picture of the disaster. Vultures are seagulls, so keep that in mind. Eat quickly and keep your food close to your body. Don’t let yourself become another victim.
We warned you not to trust the seagulls, after all! This terrifying scene looks like something out of a Renaissance painting. What was the total number of confirmed casualties on this particular day? We can’t say for sure, but the beach was never the same for these people after this ordeal.
