Summer is nearly upon us, and as the weather gets warmer and the beaches get busier, we wanted to explore some of the summer beach movies you and your family can enjoy together.
These are the best beach movies and summer-themed films available right now. So, plan a family movie night! Pop some popcorn, hop on the couch, enjoy — and get into summer mode!
Before we get into the list, though, let's explore just a few tips for some fun and unique summer movie nights:
1) Consider hosting a summer/beach movie night outdoors! If you have a projector, a white sheet and some chairs (or even blankets), it's an easy set up! Get creative!
2) Grab goodies beforehand! Popcorn is great, but get some candy and other treats so that your outdoor (or indoor) movie night is extra special!
3) Consider inviting friends, family and neighbors to come over and enjoy the movie!
4) Discuss the movie with your family and friends! We have useful guides here for kids and adults, alike. These devotions and guides offer questions you can ask about specific titles, and ideas for hosting fun movie nights.
Okay, now that we've covered some tips, let's get into some of the beach movies you can watch:
