Who doesn’t like long a sunset walk on the beach? If you’ve got even a speck of romance in you, the beach really is a spectacular place to have a date.
It is nice to get away from the city sometimes and walk down the shore, wiggle your toes in the sand, and listen to the waves crashing. However, it is a little difficult to have a date at the beach if you don’t happen to live near one.
With that said, it might be worth the trip, especially if the person you’re taking really likes going to the beach. You could also find a lake and walk along the shore. If you’re worried that a lake isn’t romantic enough, you can fix that pretty easily—take your stroll at sunset. Sunsets always add a romantic, peaceful element to everything.
If you’re lucky enough to be able to visit the beach, sit, relax, and enjoy the cool coastal breeze. You could even set out a blanket and take a nap, look at the stars, or whatever else you can think of.
What you need for this sunset walk on the beach romantic date idea:
Transportation to the beach is all you need. This is basically a free date unless you have to travel. Bring what you want; if you are just going for a walk, you don’t need much.
Maybe do a search online for the most romantic beaches closest to you. They don’t always have to be the most popular. I am sure you can find so amazing more secluded beaches if you like.
My experience with this romantic date idea:
I have done this a couple of times with different girls, including one I really liked. Her name was Jenny, and on the drive up we listened to music, sang along, and chatted with each other. We arrived at the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, California.
After parking the car in paid parking—I really hate paying to park at places—we walked around on the boardwalk browsing the different shops. Next, we did a sunset walk on the beach, took a seat in the sand, and just talked.
It was a little chilly so we cuddled a bit—a huge bonus. All in all, it was another fantastic day at the beach. After the beach excursion, we drove home and I invited her in to watch a movie. We watched The Princess Bride.
During the movie, we cuddled and she placed her hand in mine. I might be clueless sometimes when it comes to signs, but a girl holding your hand is a pretty good indication that she likes you. At the end of the movie when the song by Willie Deville and Mark Knopfler called Storybook Love began playing, I asked Jenny to dance. Smooth, I know.
We started dating after that. For the first time in a while, I thought I’d found someone remarkable. It was not to be, however. We dated for two more weeks when she suddenly pulled the plug. Dropped the good ‘ole “F” bomb on me: “I just want to be friends.” Well . . . at least the beach was amazing, right?
