The element of defense that this game has, makes it action packed and sets it apart from Cornhole. Ramp Shot is a team sport where teammates are on opposite sides. One team tosses the ball in hopes of getting it directly into the slot.

    Thanks for sharing such wonderful information about beach games. I had no idea how many different fun beach games there were. My family and I are taking a beach vacation, and looking for some fun things to take along. You have given us so many choices for beach games that my family and I can use at the beach. I love spike ball from your site and I would like to give it a try. I think that is the game we have decided on!

    Our family loves the beach and my sister goes to Naples, Florida every year. I know that her and the family love to spend their days mostly at the beach. I think that some of these games are going to be wonderful for them. I really like the Spike Ball beach game. I have played it before on the beach and it is a lot of fun!

    For someone who loves the summer and the beach, these games are great. The only one I wasn’t familiar with was Spike ball. Now that looks like something I need to get! I can vouch for bucket ball being a blast, if anyone is on the fence about that, get it! Thanks for enlightening me to Spike Ball and now my only problem is the weather in the Northeast!

    Hi, Mattysmom, Thanks for providing a great list of fun games for the beach. You have done some thorough research, providing detailed information on the games along with stats on how long they have ranked in popularity, and they all are in a good price range, less than sixty dollars. I am curious how you find the games to recommend? Is it from personal experience, trade shows, or online research, or a combination? For traveling, how would you recommend packing? Airlines are so finicky these days. Do you have a top ten list of games that your readers love? All great information you have provided nad it is great to see your site grow.

      Hi Leita, thanks for taking the time to leave me some great comments.  I live 5 minutes from the beach, and we have most of these fun beach games.   All of them are popular at the beach, as you see a lot of families or groups of young adults with these games.  I guess you could say it is personal experience and observation 🙂  This would be the Top 10 List my readers love.  Thank you so much for visiting BeachTravelDestinations.com.

    You have a very great site for planning a summer vacation on the beach.  The beach game options are all great!  I like to stay active when I am at the beach, not much of a sun bather.  So I like all these ideas!  I especially like the beach Spike Ball. I am interested in purchasing that item.  I was actually looking for information Caribbean vacation possibilities, and came across these great fun beach games!  Thanks for putting this together.

    A lot of beach games presented. Going to the beach is really something to look forward to. No excuse to get bored.

    I’ve not tried playing any of those games but BUCKET BALL seems appealing to me. I will do more research on that.

    Every information about beach games is found on one page. Your post is really informative. Thank you very much.

    Great article Leahrae! I find most of these games would be quite fun to play with friends or family alike, particularly bucket ball… which looks like strangely familiar to beer pong. Haha either way this should be great for summer and I will highly recommend your site!
    Thankyou.

      Yes, Jeremy the bucket ball game is used by some as a beer pong game. I did not want to mention that in the article 😀 It is a party game, but then the whole family can play it as well. Thanks for visiting BeachTravelDestinations.com!

    I love to go to the beach and these games are great ideas for having extra fun, especially with kids. My family and I haven´t tried the spike ball game, I think this game can be a great addition to our set of beach accessories. Not only these kind of games are good for having fun but also are very good for having quality time with your family or friends. Thanks for the information.

      You and me both Ruben. I think I am a beach-a-holic! My son and I always take the beach games with us when we go. As you say, it is quality time and we enjoy hanging out and having fun with each other at the beach. So, games are fun and they also are great for getting people together and spending the quality time together. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    Having games while at the beach is great, and your recommendations fit well with the down times when you are not in the water. This will add a lot of fun and believe it or not, keep the kids from being bored. I don’t know how they manage to get bored at the beach. I guess the variety is what will be nice. Thanks for sharing these great ideas!

      Yes, Maurice, I know that my son sometimes tells me he is bored too. We have some of the beach games, so I make it a point to bring something each time. It keeps us active when we are not in the water, just relaxing on our towels, or playing in the sand. Thanks for visiting Fun Beach Games!

    Leahrae,
    Have several of these games already. Always looking for new ideas to keep the young ones busy when we cannot get in the water.
    The PVC Cornhole game looks like something I can take along tailgating also. May have to look into this.

    Thanks for your sharing all these wonderful Beach Game ideas! I visit the beach often, and we usually have a group of us go together. We are always looking for ways to have some fun at the beach.
