Close your eyes and think about the beach. Can you feel the sand between your toes? Is the warm salty air blowing through your hair? Can you hear the lulling sound of waves rhythmically rolling along the shore?

Puzzles are not just a great activity for a lazy afternoon or an off-weather day while on a vacation with the family. Working on a beach-themed puzzle is also a way to keep those summer beach vibes alive at all times of the year.

Preserve a Piece of Paradise With a Puzzle

Using a custom puzzle website to create a 500-piece puzzle is a way to transform one of the many wonderful photos you took at the beach over the summer into a memento that everyone can enjoy. Maybe it was that elaborate sandcastle you made (that was unceremoniously swept back into the ocean by a wave), maybe it was that crazy family beach volleyball game that ended when you dove for the ball and brought the whole net down in a fit of giggles, or maybe it was that stunning sunset you watched from the pier that just never got old.

If you’re stuck and don’t have a personal photo that does the trick, MakeYourPuzzles has an amazing library of 140 million professional images you can search through for the perfect picture. Our Nature and Wildlife and Travel and Vacations categories contain iconic images of beaches and ocean sunsets and on-location shots from locations ranging from the rugged coast of Maine to the exotic beaches of Seychelles and Thailand.

Bonding at the Beach Over a Puzzle

There is nothing better than chilling after a full day at the beach by pulling out a box with a jigsaw puzzle featuring a historical event or a romantic jigsaw puzzle you got for Valentine's Day.

Leave a puzzle out (even if it is partially done) on an extra table in the corner of your vacation house. You’ll be amazed at how family and guests gravitate to that spot and the lively conversation it will spark.

Health Benefits of Beaches and Puzzles

Some people advocate for the meditative powers of being near the beach. Even if this isn’t your thing, studies have shown that puzzling is a way to keep your mind sharp.

A Fortune article touted puzzles’ ability to stimulate both the right side (the creative side) and the left side (the logical side) of your brain. This can help improve short-term memory, spatial reasoning, and problem-solving skills–which, in turn, can reduce the risk of dementia and provide other mental health benefits. On the physical side, the relaxation puzzling provides can also help reduce a person’s blood pressure.
