Man and Woman Kayaking

There is nothing better than sinking your toes into the sand during the summer, but sand has more uses than just for relaxation. Here are five activities to try on your next vacation.

Volleyball

Volleyball helps improve your agility, speed, and hand-eye coordination. It also counts as metabolic and strength training. This keeps your brain sharp, boosts heart health, builds muscle, and helps you strengthen your neuromuscular response.

Kayaking

Kayaking is an ideal upper-body and core workout. You’ll work your back, chest, shoulders, arms, and even your legs, which helps improve your balance.

Stand-Up Paddleboarding

Paddleboarding challenges your balance, helping you strengthen and tone up all over by working the stabilizing muscles in your feet and legs. This low-impact sport also works larger muscle groups in your legs, back, core, and arms, with minimum risk of injury.

Yoga

If you typically do yoga, you might find it more challenging to find balance on the sand. However, you can easily adapt your movements to the contours of the sand, as it acts like a cushion and will be gentler on your knees and joints.

Pickleball

Pickleball is a quick-thinking sport that will help you improve your hand-eye coordination over time. Unlike tennis or running, this low-impact sport reduces the strain on your knees, hips, and ankles, making it an ideal sport no matter your age.
