Beach Poems

Poems about Beaches and Experiencing Nature

Spending time at the beach is part of summer vacations for many people. There’s nothing else like building in the sand, jumping in the waves, and soaking up the sun. Looking out at the vast ocean has beauty all its own. Capturing the sun rising and setting off the horizon is a favorite beach activity to start and end each day. For many, going to the beach is a chance to get away from stress and hectic schedules. It’s a chance enjoy the sun, sand, water, and time with family and friends.

    Trip To Jamaica

    Emerald hills and turquoise seas
    Endless canvas brushed with trees
    That sway so gently in the hue
    Of watercolor azure blue

    Poem Painting A Picture Of The Beach

    Picture

    I picked up a brush
    and 80 bucks worth of paint.
    After a few tries, I know
    that kind of artist I ain't.

    This poem was so good! I loved how he starts off in the introduction saying he's not a "painting artist." He did completely paint a picture in my head that's up there with some of the greats....

  6. A Day At The Beach

    The sun and sand go hand in hand.
    The sound of constant waves -
    There's a smell of salt in the air.
    The ocean is seen through a haze.

  7. While Walking On The Beach

    The Peace Of The Beach

    You look out into the water;
    The waves make the most beautiful sound.
    A place you find peace and comfort,
    Walking hand in hand and looking around.

    Sea Poem

    As the ocean waves at me,
    And the sand greets the sea,
    The fish swim free,
    And shells wash up by me.

  11. Whispering Waves

    Power And Beauty Of The Beach

    Waves come crashing to grey sullen shores.
    Powerful and strong, it breathes and roars.
    Cascading and caressing each grain of sand,
    A warm embrace between sea and land.

  13. Birches

    Across the lines of straighter darker trees,
    I like to think some boy's been swinging them.
    But swinging doesn't bend them down to stay
