The only BS I need is Beach & Sandals!
Tropic like it’s hot
I washed up like this
I can sea clearly now
Fishing you a happy day
Don’t get tide down
Sorry, I am octopied
Avoid pier pressure
If there’s a will, there’s a wave
You really mermaid my day.
The ocean made me salty
Lost at sea? I’m not shore
All I need is a good dose of vitamin sea
I am at the sea now, I beach you to it
One-touch of nature makes the whale world kin
Resting beach face
I washed up like this
This mermaid needs mer-wine
99 problems but a beach ain’t one!
Me and the beach, we’ve got a sun-derstanding

Short Beach Captions
Sometimes some short & cute beach captions are the way to go. Less to type out so you can get back to beach life faster!
Stay wild, ocean child
Need Vitamin Sea
Stay salty, my friends
Salty hair, don’ care
Seas the Day
Happiness comes in waves
Shell we dance?
Live a life of porpoise
Salty but sweet
Don’t krill my vibe
The best kind of therapy is beach therapy
Red, white, and a whole lot of blue
Find me under the palm trees.
A pineapple a day keeps the doctor away
Mermaid kisses and starfish wishes
Beach Captions For Couples
You had me at aloha
If you need us, call on the shellphone
High tide or low tide, I’ll stay by your side
I love you more than there are grains of sand on the beach, fish in the sea, and waves in the ocean.
Just you, me, and the sea
I am the pearl to your oyster
Oh, baby I love your wave, everyday
Beach happy with you
Salt life, salt wife!
A little sun, a little you
Shell-abrating good times with my boo
