Beach movies are a particular favorite of mine. Moreover, as summer approaches and you slowly get into the mood to pack up and move out of town, many of you may not be able to do so. So what is the next best thing to do? Break out the popcorn and settle down in front of the telly. There are plenty of beach movies to save you from monotony. 

Crazy Rich Asians

This romantic comedy starring Henry Golding and Constance Wu will have you making a holiday list for Singapore immediately. However, be warned though; you will need to accumulate a fortune to do all the things the Young family does. Moreover, if you are someone who is moved by the sights and sounds of the beach, this movie is just the one for you. 

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

One of the Boynton beach movies would have done, but if you cannot find one set in the iconic Florida stretch, fret not. Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a feel-good classic from 2008 that is set in the lush, ocean-swept island paradise of Hawaii.

Moreover, you can watch it, particularly if you have just moved on from a messy breakup. Also, the adorable Jason Segel is at his finest here, and the scenes of blue waves crashing over colourful coral reefs mix quite well with the story of the movie. 

Something Borrowed

Now, this is a movie that plays like a well-written book. The messy romance and quirky love triangles set against the backdrop of lush scenery will win your heart. Moreover, you can also watch this movie if you love your cinema playing to the subtle sounds of nature, the warmth of the sun and pleasant chatter.

Something Borrowed is for people who prefer the calmness of semi-tamed nature with a plate of romance served fresh. One of the finest beach movies on Netflix. 

Roman Holiday

Roman Holiday

Ah, this beautiful classic from the golden age of Hollywood. Audrey Hepburn plays a princess who goes undercover to escape the stifling burden of responsibilities and media glare. She ends up in probably one of the most iconic summer destinations in the world:- Rome.

In addition to this, Gregory Peck serves as her companion as they spend an entire day touring all the famous sights. Also, this is for you if you like your vacation smelling slightly of pasta, goat cheese and olives.

Sex and the City

Sex and the City

2008 was simply an awesome year for films. Sex and the City is a much-vaunted classic which has the ladies run away to Mexico for some time away from their overbearing lives. Moreover, there is nothing like a little sun to work wonders upon all your problems. Besides, the vistas are awe-inspiring, and you feel like packing your bags and heading straight to Mexico for a little tete-a-tete. 

Smoke Signals

Lastly, one of the finest Adam Beach movies, Smoke Signals, captures the beautiful landscape of Idaho with great panache and stunning detail. The story itself is simple yet touching.

The relationship between an angry young man growing up on the reservation with the man who raised him after his biological father died. This forms the crux of the movie. Watch this for Adam’s acting and the sweeping, grand cinematography that will surely stir the wanderlust inside you.
