The day can be spent playing volleyball or enjoying a picnic lunch under one of the many palm trees, but if you’re looking for something more exciting, we offer 12 ideas:

1. Sunset Watching

Bunche Beach is a great place to watch the sunset. As night falls and the temperature cools down, you and your friends and family can enjoy the gentle breeze while watching one of Florida’s most beautiful sunsets.
