7 types of people you see at the beach

Whether you’re topping up your tan in Tenerife or bronzing your body in the Balearics, the beach is always a prime place to people watch. Keep an eye out for these classic characters as we count down the 7 types of people you’ll see at the beach…

1) The water baby 

This person LOVES watersports. Whether it’s jet-skiing, paragliding or even a banana boat – they’re always first in line (and usually the best at it). 

2) The architect

Building sandcastles is a skill you’re either born with or without – and unsurprisingly, those born with the talent are usually found at the beach.
