Fun water activities for a hot summer day

July 28, 2016

During the heat and humidity of the summer, nothing is more refreshing than spending a day out on the water. Throw on a chic designer plus size swimsuit, head out to your local beach and enjoy a rejuvenating summer day with your family. Here are 5 fun water activities to enjoy on your day in the sun.



Whether at your local oceanfront, lakefront, or riverfront, there should be no difficulty in finding a place to rent a canoe. This is a great activity for the entire family to enjoy. Strap on the kids’ life vests, slide into one of your sleek swimsuit cover ups and casually paddle through the water as you soak up the serenity. There is no need to act as though you’re in a race; paddle at your own pace and even look out for waterside restaurants to make a stop at along your journey.



All you need is a stylish pair of snorkeling goggles to match your trendy plus size bikini and you can open the window into the sea. Your kids will especially love being able to see the fish swim beneath them as they gaze into an entirely different world. If you’ve never snorkeled before, instructors are easy to find at your local beach and will be able to ensure a safe and unforgettable adventure under the sea.


Stand-Up Paddleboarding


While I understand the intimidation factor of imagining yourself standing up in the water on a 15-foot board as your paddle along the shore, stand-up paddleboarding is one of the most thrilling ways to enjoy a day on the water. Look for an instructor on the beach to guide you, first on the sand, then into the water, and while you will likely fall in the beginning, I can assure you that you’ll catch on quickly. Once you become a paddleboarding pro, then the real fun begins, as you glide across the water, showing off one of your favorite cute tankini tops.




For a truly exhilarating experience, without having to worry about your balance or coordination, hop on a jet ski and speed across the water with the sun shining down on you. This may not be the ideal activity for young kids, but you deserve a unique experience to revitalize your body and mind. Riding up and down along the waves of the water on a jetski is a great way to see the shoreline and energize your family day on the water. With water splashing on one of your fabulous one piece swimsuits, jetskiing will undoubtedly give you a thrill unlike any other.




If you’ve never tried fishing, it is a great activity for you and your kids sure to make your day relaxing and enjoyable. An ideal activity for hanging out on a dock in perfect weather, or renting a boat and going out into the water, fishing is a low-stress, high-fun way to spend an afternoon. Toss on one of your glamorous swim cover ups or choose a piece from your collection of stylish plus size sundresses, and kick back as your kids sling their fishing lines into the water and try lure in the biggest fish in the sea.


There is no better way to unwind and beat the heat of the summer like spending a day on the water. Whether mesmerized by observing the world of marine life below you, putting your balance to the test stand-up paddleboarding in your plush plus size swimwear, lying back in a lounge chair on a dock as your kids cast their fishing lines, or being invigorated by the bumps, twists and turns of your jet ski, the family day on the water will be one to remember. With endless possibilities for relaxation and entertainment, be sure to make spending a day on the water a part of your next family outing.
