Propose On A Beach? 15 Ideas.

Q Report Team
Updated on March 19, 2024
3 min read

Now that you’ve bought your engagement ring, you’ll want to plan a memorable and romantic proposal. The beach is a popular destination for this type of moment, and there are many ways to use this backdrop to creatively propose.

Choose one of the following 15 creative beach proposal ideas.


1. Message in a Bottle

Enlist a friend to place and watch a bottle on the sand that contains your proposal. Take a walk on the beach with your partner, and when the two of you “discover” the bottle and she reads the proposal, get down on one knee and present your ring.


2. Go Underwater

If you and your partner like to go snorkelling or SCUBA diving, you can plan a unique underwater proposal. Take a waterproof whiteboard to write your proposal on, and show it to your significant other while you’re exploring underwater.


3. Enlist the Lifeguards

When they're not busy on duty, you may be able to enlist the help of local lifeguards to play an unexpected role in your proposal.


4. Say it With Your Surfboard

If you and your future spouse love to surf, use painter’s tape to write your proposal on the bottom of your surfboard.


5. Write it in the Sky

Hire a small plane and pilot to fly over the beach with a “Will You Marry Me?” banner flown with both of your names on it.


6. Hire a Sand Sculpture Artist

Hire a sand sculpture artist to design and create a castle on the beach that represents something about you and your fiance-to-be, and after the two of you view the sandcastle, get ready to propose.


7. Set up a Treasure Hunt

Send your partner on a treasure hunt with personalised clues reflecting your relationship. When they reach the end of the hunt, have a ring box with the ring hidden buried in the sand. Make sure the ring is taken care of by a friend so it’s protected.


8. Take a Sunset Excursion

Rent a boat and crew to take the two of you out on a sunset trip on the water, complete with some champagne to toast your engagement.


9. Arrange a Shell Surprise

Get a shell and secure your engagement ring to the bottom of it using tape or string before you get to the beach. Place it on the sand when your sweetheart isn’t looking, and point out your “discovery.” Ensure you have a friend that can keep a close eye on the location of the surprise at all times, to avoid losing it.


10. Include a Love Song

Arrange for a group of musicians to meet you on the beach and play a love song that’s meaningful for you and your partner before, during, or after the proposal. As an added bonus, you can have the same song played at your wedding reception.


11. Line the Boardwalk With Lanterns

Wait until it’s close to sunset and line the boardwalk with lanterns. You can wait at the end as your spouse-to-be walks to you for the big proposal among the romantic lights.


12. Get Sentimental With Signs

Put a trail of signs in the sand that reflects your love for your partner. Now’s the time to get sentimental with your words, and by the time your partner walks past the signs and makes her way to you, she’ll be crying happy tears.


13. Make Your Exercise Romantic

If you and your sweetheart enjoy yoga, plan to stretch on the beach. Pack some snacks and water bottles, along with a new custom yoga mat with your proposal written on it. After they see the message, get down on one knee with the ring.


14. Set up a Beach Photoshoot

Contact a photographer for a beach photoshoot, telling your partner that you won the session or you just wanted some professional vacation photos of the two of you together. Work with the photographer on different cues so they can transition from a regular couples photoshoot to one that preserves the moment of your proposal.


15. Take a Plane or Helicopter Ride

Rent a plane or helicopter to take you and your sweetheart on a quick tour over the beach and its surrounding areas. When you’re admiring the sights, get your partner to look at you as you present the ring and propose.

Proposing on the beach can be extremely romantic and memorable, but make sure to take care of your engagement ring as you’re planning and executing your surprise. The last thing you want is for your ring to get swept away by the sea or lost in the sand.

Make sure to insure your ring’s value with Q Report’s specialised jewellery insurance. We offer insurance for theft, loss, damage, mysterious disappearance, and more, so you can propose at the beach without worry. Fill out this short form, and we’ll provide an instant quote to cover your ring’s value and give you peace of mind.
