The beach is a place of fun. You bask in the sun, play in the water, surf, build sand castles, there are so many possibilities. And one of those possibilities happens to be taking pictures of some unfortunate soul that managed to get into a compromising position. These are some of the most hilarious beach photos ever taken.
Where Is She?
She’s a little bit difficult to see, but there’s a woman sunbathing back there. She’s just so pale she blends in with the sand.
Stumble And Fall
Not sure what this woman tripped on, this beach seems pretty flat. But it was apparently so bad that she face-planted right into the sand.
Well That’s Not Very Reassuring
This sign’s pretty funny. But if you’re staying at this hotel then you might just find yourself a little worried about actual tidal waves.
This is absolutely genius! No one would be able to steal your flip flops now!
Just Lounging Around
It honestly seems like too much effort to bring this couch out here just to sunbathe. But to each their own.
Pig On The Beach
Its a beautiful sunset image of the beach. It’s just funny that it’s of an incredibly fat pig. I hope the pig’s having fun.
Normally when you go to the beach, you’re more worried about losing your food to birds. This woman had to worry about monkeys. They’re probably more dangerous than birds, but also a lot more cute.
The Tortoise And Some Flare
What a nice and cute photo with the tortoise. Seems as though its got a little bit of something in its mouth, but beggars can’t be choosers. Its hard enough enough to get him to pose.
11 + 1
This group of young women clearly planned this photo. They look lovely in their nice pose. However, if you look carefully, you can see someone in the background decided to get in on the posing.
Not Like The Others
Speaking of beach photobombs, it appears as though this one was more or less planned. A lineup of beautiful young women, with this kind, older gentleman in the back. It must have been a fun shoot.
You’ve definitely seen this horse head on the internet before. Somehow, no matter how many times you see it, it doesn’t become any less funny. Being out of place is just its thing.
Reading on the beach isn’t that uncommon. But what a way to have the cover match up with your face.
You don’t see elephants on the beach that often. But this adolescent one seems real tuckered out. Ya know, elephants do overheat very easily.
An Interesting Flotation Device
I wouldn’t expect someone to use an inflatable doll as a flotation device at the beach. Especially given what they’re normally used for… ya know, CPR dummies.
This is impressive. How much time, energy, and sand do you need to make an actually functional couch like this? That’s probably why this guy is sleeping on it now.
“I Thought Horses Slept Standing Up”
There’s this island located between Virginia and Maryland called Assateague Island. It’s well known for the wild ponies that wander onto the beach to sunbathe.
My Big Fat Penguin Wedding
Looks like someone decided to perform a beachfront wedding… using stuffed penguins. It’s still adorable though, especially since they’re wearing clothes.
Truly a parade for the ages. It appears as though the person who took this picture wasn’t the only one interested in following the parade around the beach.
Taking A Picture Of Someone Taking A Picture
It’s not incredibly clear why this man is taking a picture of this cleaver. What is funny is that someone decided to take a picture of him crouching down to do it.
Cutting It Close
If that jet was a few feet lower, you could touch it. The airport isn’t even visible in the photo, which makes you wonder why the plane’s flying so low.
It looks as though this seal decided to lounge on this beach chair after coming out of the water. The funniest part about that is the difficult to make out divider behind it. That seems to imply you’re supposed to leave it alone. Maybe it does this all the time.
An Excellent Marriage Proposal
Honestly, this guy went the extra mile. So much effort. I really hope she said yes.
Cats Hate Water
Who thought it would be a good idea to bring a cat to the beach in the first place? Getting in the water is half the fun.
Rats With Wings
It appears as though you can’t just take pictures of your food on the beach. Seagulls already enjoy stealing food from random people, so of course a donut wouldn’t be any different.
My Friend, My Surfboard
I’m not entirely certain how they managed to pull this one off. But where else are you going to take a picture of yourself surfing on your friend than at the beach?
Oh no! Someone cut this guy’s head off! Well, it’s more likely that one guy buried his head and the other buried the rest of his body. Either way, the models for this photo can’t be in a good state. One probably can’t move and the other probably can’t breathe.
Seeing muscular men at the beach isn’t too bizarre. Although, their wardrobe this day was certainly interesting. Did they lose a bet or just do this cause they thought it would look funny? If it was the latter, they were correct.
Sad And Lonely
You can just hear the sad music playing in the background as this one guy’s sandwiched between the pair of happy couples. One can only hope that this picture was only taken as a joke. Otherwise, this guys’ life may be sadder than we thought.
People bury their bodies at the beach all the time. Although, normally they do it farther away from the water line. And they especially don’t put their heads in a hole below sea level.
It’s a little hard to tell, but what that women’s holding looks like a jellyfish. So what makes this funny is that she’s holding on without a care in the world. Even dead jellyfish can sting, so that’s pretty dangerous to hold just so nonchalantly.
Grabbing your friend, pinning them to the ground, and forcing them to drink what looks like a canned beer. This may be staged, but that doesn’t make it look any less funny.
Looks like the tide’s coming in. They may have posed for a photo op too. Well, it looks pretty good, but also hilarious. Hopefully they don’t get too much sand and saltwater in their eyes.
Maybe not quite a bum, but this guy really didn’t come to the beach with the right clothes on. Well, he at least got the shirtless part right.
People like to take frisbees and other sports equipment to the beach to have a little fun. It can be fun throwing a frisbee back and forth with your friends. Although, it’s probably not a good idea to try to catch it with your face.
It’s a rare sight to see for raccoons to gather at the beach. What’s that man carrying that he attracted a gaze of raccoons? A gaze is what you call a group of raccoons.
Driving To The Beach
Driving the beach is one thing, but you shouldn’t take it onto the sands. Someone took the car a little too deep onto the beach. Was parking really that bad?
Well, for lack of better words this style of dress at the beach is certainly… strange. The luchador masks especially so. There’s probably a reason for it, maybe stopping sunburns, but then you’d just tan unevenly.
Who’s a good boy! They must be such an effective fishing boat captain. They’ve even got a net. And look at beauty of a vessel in the background!
The Worst Outcome
Getting buried up to your head at the beach is bad enough. Getting flocked by seagulls also isn’t fun. But then both of those things happening at the same time and one of them pooping on your head? You might need some therapy afterwards.
Who says you have to be a body builder to be strong? These women seem to be carrying their body builder partners no problem. They must weigh 250 pounds each. Yet the ladies don’t seem to be struggling in the slightest.
Oof! So close! They didn’t even have time to react to the dog jumping in the way before the photo was taken. Hopefully they could just wrangle up the dog and try again afterwards. Still a sight to remember though.
Nothing’s more terrifying at the beach than seeing a shark in the water. Although this might be enough to retroactively make that fear go away. Is that shark costume even waterproof? The people at the beachhead certainly seem to find this predicament to be particularly… strange. They probably won’t hop in the water as long as that shark’s there though.
This girl looks pretty thirsty. When you do a bunch of exercise in the heat of the sun at a beach, you’re bound to get thirsty. Although, they have to be incredibly thirsty in this moment. After all, why else would they be taking a sip from a water bottle this big? Perspective is a pretty funny thing, isn’t it?
Hey! You should be keeping that in a brown, paper bag if you’re going to be drinking in public…! Hey! Wait a minute! You’re too young to drink! The bottles probably aren’t actually full of alcohol, if they have anything inside them at all, but it does create a funny image.
There’s that forced perspective again. Except this time it’s more so working against the subject here. It can get pretty bad getting trapped, but it’s even more insulting to be trapped underneath something like a plastic sand bucket. Not to mention it’s insulting.
Three Girls And A Chimp
That chimp’s really trying to cop a feel? Well, it is an ape after all. Wanting to get a picture with the wildlife seems fun in the moment, but it can quickly get out of hand. Especially considering how volatile a chimp can be. Although, if this is its closely related cousin the bonobo… certain physical contact is still to be expected.
Just trying to get a candid photo of yourself taken, right? Nothing wrong with that. But this is just another example of why it’s important to check your background for photobombers before taking the shot. In this case, the photobombers in question are a pair of dogs having a bit too much fun at the beach.
Santa Caught At High Tide
An overweight man with a big and bushy, white beard? If his trunks were red you’d have to say he was Santa. Regardless of what he looks like though, one thing’s true: this guy’s asleep. It almost seems as though he fell asleep in this chair and the tide came in while he was passed out.
You probably shouldn’t bring your cosplay or Halloween costumes to the beach. That’s a surefire way for them to get wet. Of course, if this man was a time-displaced person from hundreds of years ago, it’d make complete sense why he was wearing this while knee-deep in water at the beach.
Is that person in the front even supposed to be in the photo? It seemed as though it was supposed to be a simple, family photo. But it looks like as soon as that woman in the salmon-colored shirt showed up the entire group cowered and tried to move away from them.
Being hungry is one thing, but is this really what you should be eating? There’s something pretty messed up about eating another person. Even if they are tiny…! Or maybe it’s just that forced perspective thing again.
The Upright Dog
This dog looks like they’re really strutting around the beach. You don’t often see dogs standing on their hind legs like that. And usually they’re holding themselves up on something when they do. But, considering the position of this dog’s ears, they may be on their way back to all-fours.
What kind of power is she using on this guy? She knocked him right off his feet without even touching him. Was it the wind pressure from her movements or just something that the normal eye just can’t see?
Four friends, all achieving enlightenment together. Or maybe they just took a picture while they were in midair while jumping. The crossed legs certainly makes it look like the first thing. It’s still a fun picture regardless.
What, never seen a crocodile before? To be fair, finding one suddenly in your hands would be terrifying. Even if they were a small one like this. Fortunately, this woman has nothing to worry about. Crocodiles’ bite force is all in the clamp down. With the tape over its jaws it can’t even open its mouth.
Burying older children and adults is one thing, but a toddler? This kid looks more like they fell into a sinkhole than anything else. Hurry! Someone get a plastic shovel! We need to dig this kid out!
It’s not every day that you see a nun outside of a convent. And even when you do, they’re rarely a young, hot-looking one like this. And even under those circumstances, do you really see them at the beach? This nun must have been an avid surfer before she took up the habit.
Too Big For A Beach Umbrella
There’s that forced perspective one last time. It looks like a giant’s trying to give someone a beach umbrella. Or maybe, based on the point on that umbrella, they’re doing something a little more sinister. It would explain why the woman in the photo seems to be trying to stop it from being planted.
Cats Don’t Like The Beach
It’s pretty well-known how much cats hate water. Their fur isn’t waterproof after all. So that poses the question of why someone would even bring their cat to the beach. This one even looks albino, so the sun wouldn’t be doing it any favors. Oh yeah, and the cat own in this photo’s making a pretty funny pose.
