    Basically I've never been to the seaside before and will be going for the first time. But what are you actually supposed to do at a beach? Do you just walk around and lie on the sand? Or do people swim there? I can swim pretty well but I'm not sure whether swimming at an actual sea would be dangerous because of the tides...

    My favourite thing to do at the beach is read. When people 'swim' at the beach, it usually just paddling or playing games in the water.

    I've lived within easy walking distance (<1 mile) of a beach for 14 years. You have picnics, bbqs, swim, walk dogs, sunbathe, etc.

    My personal favourite thing to do at the beach is wait until 12-1 am, have a long walk along the beach to somewhere really dark, then sit, close your eyes and listen to the waves. Optional extras: stare at the sky, write, meditate, sleep, wait until sunrise.

    Try to keep your mouth shut when you see 7 year olds in bikinis. I'll never understand why parents do that to their children.

    Make a massive sand castle with walls and a moat and when the waves come the moat will fill and you can see how long your castle can defend itself from the waves

    Depends where and when.

    UK beaches in October, well if it's mild I would still swim at the likes of Bournemouth because the sea is still relatively warm, though I would take a thermos flask with a hot drink, or go to a cafe after. It this time of year you can sit in the sun without any fear of burning. Choose a beach with a lifeguard or marked areas and don't go alone, don't go beyond your depth ... Ideally there will be some surf to ridy, at least "body surf", or you can buy a cheap polystyrene thing.

    Swim, you will build muscle & lose weight.
