I still haven’t been able to figure out how a beach bod is different than a regular bod — other than the fact that the owner of bod just so happens to be at the beach. When I look at these pictures of Joe Manganiello emerging from the water like a Greek God, I stop wondering and just enjoy the view. How the … what the … #*^$)*%^()%&)(^&)?! Now I need to go for a swim. Here are some more hot male bodies that just so happen to be at the beach.
Jesus Christ, Jordan Catalano. You are such a disappointment.
Come summer, there are only two places you’ll find me on the weekend — laying on the beach in Long Island or laying on my rooftop. Basking in the sun, soaking up that Vitamin D — always with a high SPF! — is something I’ve very serious about and comfort is key. That’s why I basically lost my mind when I came across the Ostrich 3-in-1 beach chair, which offers three possible reclining positions. Most importantly, it has a frickin’ hole for your face so you can lay on your stomach and read. And! It’s actually comfortable and easy to tote around. I’m in love. This is going to be the best summer ever. [$88.99, BeachChairs.com]
We used to schlep our stuff to the beach in a regular canvas tote bag that never really had adequate space. Then we came across Fashionable Notes’ Beach Bag, which has made beach-going a more practical and easy experience. The Beach Bag is large enough to hold a couple of towels or large sheets, a magazine and a book, a water bottle, and a sandwich and snacks with room left over. “Beach Bag” is stylishly printed on the side of the bag with water-based ink. The inside is coated with a vinyl-like product that’s easy to clean, and there are rubber feet at the bottom so the bag doesn’t actually rest in the sand. Now, we have to stop ourselves from going to the beach just to show off our Beach Bag.
So, everybody knows that walking in heels in sand is virtually impossible. So why in the heck would both Katie Holmes and her little girl Suri Cruise wear heels to play around in the sand? The pair were spotted all dolled up at a Memorial Day beach party in Malibu. Ladies, ladies, ladies! Sensible flip-flops please! You’re making my calves hurt just looking at ya! Keep reading »
I’m not saying this elephant baby is drunk. I’m saying that this baby elephant’s rolling and thrashing and staggering pretty much approximates what I look like when I’m drunk. [YouTube

Woody Allen and Scarlett Johansson spent a fake day at a fake beach for their 2006 New York magazine story. Perhaps Scarlett’s close relationship with Woody led to her breakup with Ryan Reynolds? We’re sure Woody hopes that’s true. [Touch Puppet] Keep reading »
If the future bride isn’t crazy about Vegas, male strippers or pornographic party favors, try hitting the beach for a memorable bachelorette party.

For most people, the main goal when dressing for the beach is being able to disrobe easily and quickly so precious moments in the sun and water aren’t lost. But there are a few women, like Kelly Rowland and Mexican singer/actress Paulina Rubio, who go beyond the simple swimsuit cover-up, romper, or slip dress, and actually plan an entire outfit for the beach.

Here at The Frisky, we’ve talked wearable towels, Gucci towels and recession-defying $500 towels, but here’s another sort of absorbent fabric type to add to the list: Artware Editions has just introduced their 2009 Artist Towel Series. It features three-ply designs from some pretty big-deal artists like Ed Ruscha, Karen Kilimnick, Raymond Pettibon and Julian Schnabel. (Last year the round-up included Jeff Koons (check it, above) and Elizabeth Peyton.) You should also know that these are massive towels. Seriously, you could throw one of these bad boys down on the sand and fit at least two healthy-sized adults on there. And while drying off doesn’t come cheap (they run $95 each), I guess they’re a bit more accessible than say, buying a Koons sculpture at auction prices. [Artware Editions] Keep reading »
