How to Play a Beach Scavenger Hunt

So, how do you play a Beach Scavenger Hunt? Well, be creative! There are so many ways to play, that I’ll just share a few of my favorite scavenger hunt ideas:

  • Beach Walks – Adults love long walks on the beach… but kids? Not always. Keep the kids entertained while walking along the beach or pier. Encourage them to observe their surroundings with a beach scavenger hunt.
  • Beach Party Game – Throwing a party at the beach? A scavenger hunt is a great beach party game. Challenge guests to search the property in order to find as many items as they can.
  • Photo Scavenger Hunt – Great for adults and teens, send them around the pier to capture photos of each item with their smartphones. Allot extra points when a person is in the photo, too, or require entire groups be in the photo with each item listed on the scavenger hunt.
