National Beach Day

National Beach Day

Daphne Agredano

On August 30, in the midst of summer, is National Beach Day. This day is meant to remember that mostly everyone enjoys spending a warm day lounging on a sandy beach, building sandcastles, and cooling down at the gorgeous sea. This day increases our appreciation for beaches while also highlighting the need to keep them secure and safe. Also, the importance of keeping beaches clean so that everyone can enjoy them.

The sun’s rays are intensified for your skin by reflecting off the ocean water. You are exposing yourself to a lot of UV rays while spending the day outside. Apply sunscreen to protect your skin. You’ll protect your skin from apply aging as well as avoiding sunburns.

History of National Beach Day

The Knights of Columbus in Milwaukee were the first to come up with the concept of a day to honor beaches in the United States in 1929. This day was intended to be a component of their convention preparations – but it never really caught on. National Beach Day was not established until 2014 and it is celebrated at the end of August. This day aims to show people how much we appreciate beaches and how important it is to keep them clean so that future generations can enjoy them as much as we do.

  • Throw a beach party

The health of beaches and oceans can be heavily influenced by little straightforward actions. Take advantage of today to spend time at the beach with family and friends!
