Everyone loves a fun-filled day at the beach on a hot summer day! There’s nothing that can compare to soaking up the sun and catching some epic waves in your favourite bathing suit. And who doesn’t like frosty cold drinks and snacks to make a day at the beach even better? There is no better way to get some good old-fashioned fun, exercise, laughs and connect with family and friends. It’s the kind of fun you just can’t have indoors.
But, what sucks even more is, if it doesn’t turn out the way you planned it to be.
Jimmy Fallon recently took on Twitter, asking his followers and fans to share their funniest and weirdest experiences at the beach. And the Internet delivered!
We’ve lined up for you the most epic beach fails that range from a few disgusting surprises to the most humiliating experiences. What’s more, the secondhand embarrassment is so embarrassing that it’ll leave you cringing for a while after its over. It might even make you reconsider that beach trip you’ve planned with your friends for the end of the month.
Here’s the tweet that started it all:
It’s Hashtags time! Tag a tweet with #BeachFail and then tell us about a funny or weird thing that happened to you at the beach. Could be on the show!

1. This is what instant karma looks like!
Does it get any nastier than this? Hold tight, because it actually does. So, the next time you find a house key maybe spend a few minutes trying to find the owner!
Went snorkeling with my friend and he found a house key in the ocean. He picked it up and said “some idiot lost his key” and threw it. When I dropped him off at his house he realized it was his key. #beachfail

2. How sad is this?
I guess you just can’t help being a ginger sometimes.
My cousin had a beach wedding. I’m a very pale redhead. I put on so much sunscreen that the flash from the camera only picked up my black eyeliner, red hair, and floral dress. I ruined the wedding photos. #BeachFail

3. 5 hours for what!
Imagine getting bombarded with naked people at the beach.
I took my two and three year old cousins to a beach, we drove for five hours, only to find out that it was a nudist beach. #BeachFail

4. Don’t let you children fall asleep at the beach.
This is what a sand nap looks like.

5. Here’s why you should never pick anything up from the ground and eat it.
Next time you’re craving a cheeto – just buy a packet. It’ll save you from all the scarring for life.
When my sister was little, she saw a Cheeto in the sand and ate it. Come to find out it was orange seagull poop. My dad tried to stop her, but it was too late. #BeachFail

6. 10 feet in 20 minutes.
I don’t think it gets any more embarrassing than this!
First time paddle boarding. Got no instruction from the harbor rental people. Later I was notified via loud speaker that I was in the way of a ferry docking. I only managed to spin repeatedly. The people onboard had to teach me from the ferry. I went 10 feet in 20 min.#BeachFail

7. Tripped and landed face first……
This story is so embarrassing that you’d actually never want to return to that beach again.
#BeachFail That time I was eating a sandwhich while walking on the beach and I was attacked by MANY seaguls. I started running….tripped and landed face first into a guys crotch.

8. While at the dog beach……
He should consider himself lucky because it could have been much worse!
A dog peed on my fiancé's back while we were at the dog beach. #BeachFail

9. In hiding for 3 years.
Shocking revelation for daddy dearest!
My dad showed up to the same beach my mom & I were at & he saw the tattoo I had been hiding for 3 years pic.twitter.com/iRSsAQCmnu

10. At least somebody had a great time!
Now we know what happens when you drink too much salt water.

11. PARTY ANIMAL!
Almost a scene out of “Weekend at Bernie’s”!
My wife passed out on the beach in Cabo after too many margaritas. When I found her, she was at the high tide line, face in the sand with the tide coming in. It was almost a scene out of “Weekend at Bernie’s.” #BeachFail

12. Just spending the day jogging at the beach with an orange suit on.
Chains and handcuffs would’ve been such a dead giveaway!

13. Straight out of a crime scene!
“Is that a sea creature or a dead body?”
I grew up in Chicago & my younger 1/2 sister lived in the suburbs & thought Chicago was scary. To prove her wrong, my sister & I took our 1/2 sister to North Ave Beach. A few hrs. in we saw ambulances & police cars 500’ away. It turns out a body had washed onto shore #BeachFail

14. At least he was honest about it.
Humiliation in front of hundreds of people. BEST. DAY. EVER!
I took my 9 year old son to a beach in Northern California. I noticed he kept putting his hands down his trunks, I asked from the shore “sweetie what are you doing?” He screamed back as loud as he could “my nuts are freezing Mom!” #beachfail Oh, the looks I got.

15. Till today, I bet you didn’t even know microscopic jelly fish exist!
Or did you know?
Me and my friends ran into the water like little school girls, only to run right back out with microscopic jellyfish all over us. They somehow found a way into my ass crack and didn’t want to leave. #BeachFail
