Favorite Beach Captions For Instagram: 100+ Beach Sayings

What’s up, beaches? Long time no sea. After writing a blog post about our most favorite beach quotes, we decided to make another specific one just for social media. Beach captions are very popular as they are cute, mostly short, and probably make most people SMILE. 

I put together my favorite beach captions of all times, including short captions for Instagram, funny captions, ocean captions, inspirational captions, and much more. Be sure to use them for your next Instagram (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) post. So make a wish upon a starfish, and don’t forget to tag us. Sea la vie!

We love quotes, and we already made a post about smile quotes, travel couple quotes and also the best travel quotes to awaken your wanderlust. So this post is another addition to our inspirational section here. And we hope you will find it useful for your daily life and also for Instagram.


As a beach couple, we have many beach photos and sometimes we just don’t know what caption to write for each Instagram post. We love to provide more details about the place, but sometimes it is nice to just spice it up with a quote. That is when beach quotes come in handy. There are so many beach sayings to choose from and we are very happy to play with them. I love to bend them and make my own versions but there are a few of them which are super awesome and inspiring.


These days when you are creating a post on Instagram you need to make sure that your captions are also engaging and somehow catchy. That is why you would like to write something that is cute but also somehow amusing and will catch your follower/reader’s attention. So have a look at a few examples of what you can ask your followers/ readers: Don’t forget to be authentic and genuine.

  • What is your favorite beach quote/beach caption?
  • Tell me your favorite beach and why?
  • How does your perfect beach day look like?
  • Who do you like to beach with?
  • Day at the beach or day in the mountains?
  • Do you prefer summer or winter?
  • What is your favorite water sport? Do you snorkel? Do you enjoy paddleboarding/surfing/scuba diving…?

Of course, the possibilities are ENDLESS and it’s totally up to you how you use these beach quotes and with what questions you combine them. Just don’t forget to engage and answer your followers.


There are many famous beach captions out there and we love them all, but there are a few that we would call ICONIC. Do you recognize some of them? Which one of these beach saying would you use? Of course, as a beachaholic, this is my favorite one is:

Okay, beaches, the following beach sayings are here to make you smile, so if you don’t laugh at the end, we have a huge problem. So many people stress about their bodies and how they look. Especially how people going to look at them on Instagram. You should never compare yourself to others. NEVER! Be yourself and love yourself. And that is why this is our absolute FAVORITE FUNNY BEACH CAPTION:

That’s why I love these cute inspirational beach captions and they are perfect for InstagramEveryone is different; everyone has a different background. I feel sad when I see people bashing someone on Instagram.

The most romantic moments for us happens on the beach. I still can’t believe that we spent two years wandering around together. Nico actually proposed to me on the beach when we were visiting Cuba. Love is the most important thing in life. It is so true if you do not have anyone in your life who truly loves or you truly love someone, then this is a sad life. I love the beach life, and that was definitely one of the most special moments in my life. And this is the one I LOVE THE MOST:

My love for you is deeper than the ocean.”

I love these cute beach captions, and they are absolutely perfect for Instagram. Especially the first one in this section. Sometimes I wonder who do I need to be? Or what society requires me to be. Don’t get me wrong, I am a good citizen, but we often wonder: “Are we only just that?” Someone who goes to work every day, pays taxes, and then dies? NO, we are all individuals, and we are obliged to ourselves to follow our passions and dreams. Because: “The best things happened to me sitting on my couch”: SAID NO ONE EVER. And yes, you can buy all the material stuff with money, but true LOVE, MEMORIES, and ADVENTURE you can only experience. And don’t worry, get Sandy!

Have I dreamt I am a mermaid or am I a mermaid dreaming I am me?

I’m happiest when floating in the sea.

Sun-bleached hair & Sandy skin.

Don’t Worry, Get Sandy!

I’m in 75% of Earth.

Beach life is the best life to be lived.

Everyone should believe in something. I believe I should go to the beach.

May you always have a shell in your pocket and sand in your shoes.

A life without the beach is no life at all.

Beach life is a great life


Who doesn’t like an ocean breeze? And who is a true OCEANHOLIC? WE ARE! We have seen so many beautiful beaches, some of the prettiest beaches in Southeast Asia, South America and in Australia. And it is so true that just by looking at the ocean, you will become calmer and happier. I love staring at the ocean and admiring waves crashing down. And every time I am at the beach and see the ocean, I FEEL LIKE:

Every time I slip into the ocean, it’s like going home“.

Salty but sweet

Life’s a wave – catch it!

The ocean is everything I want to be. Beautiful, mysterious, wild and free.

Ocean air. Salty hair. Don’t care.

Stop and smell the ocean.

You are the ocean; everything else is just waves and wind.

Waves for days.

Dear Ocean, Thank you for making us feel tiny, humbled, inspired, and salty…All at once.

Dear, ocean. I think about you all the time.

As free as the ocean.

As WILD as the ocean.

In the waves of change, we find our direction.

Even the upper end of the river believes in the ocean.

Home is where the ocean is.

An ocean breeze puts a mind at ease.

Even castles made from sand fall to the ocean.

I’m a true OCEANHOLIC!

I am always happy anywhere I can see the ocean.



If you still need extra love on your Instagram post, have a look at extra beach sayings. I have always loved this quote:

Gone to the Beach. Be back never.

And we did quit and left our everyday lives. My dream was to live by the sea, finally, have a view from our home on the ocean. Although it might seem like a very romantic thought, traveling full time was more challenging than we thought. After two years traveling in Southeast AsiaSouth America, and Australia, we came back home (Germany), and now I am dreaming again about the beach and ocean. Hopefully, it will be soon possible, and we can move somewhere where THE BEACH WILL BE MY HOME.

Forever BEACHY.

Sandy toes. Sun-kissed nose.

I’m happiest when floating in the sea.

If you need me, I’ll be at the beach.

Memories are made in flip-flops.

Find Me under the Palms.

Don’t Worry, Get Sandy!

I need Vitamin SEA.

Meet me there, where the sea meets the sky.

Keep palm and carry on.

Here comes the sun.


These cute beach captions are perfect for Instagram and for the ones who want to seas the day. Each and every day. You do not know when it will be your last day on this planet. So make every day COUNT. It doesn’t mean that you need to go crazy and jump from a helicopter every day (though it’s cool), but just do your best, be the best version of yourself, GIVE, LOVE and ENJOY. No one has a real plan or an idea on what to do, so just chill and go to the beach.
