Our Favourite Beach Movies of All Time

Our Favourite Beach Movies of All Time

29 May 2017

Seen as though we're only days away from June and the official start of summer, we here in SPIN decided to take a look at our favourite beach movies of all time to get us ready for the sun, sea and sand this summer!


The Tom Hanks/Wilson love affair is one we’ll never get over. Ever.

Blue Crush

Surfing used to mean gross, second hand wetsuits on our school tour…until Blue Crush. Kate Bosworth’s beachy waves and killer bikinis changed the game with this movie.

The Beach

LEO IN SHORTS. Need we say more?

The Little Mermaid

Iconic. We still believe that Flounder and Sebastien are out there in the sea, somewhere… belting out tunes and generally being the cutest sea life to ever live.


Granted, we’ll NEVER rock a red one piece like the babes in Baywatch, but we’ll never stop trying. And with the new movie giving us unrivalled visuals of Zac Efron’s abs, this is definitely our favourite beach movie of all time!!


Baywatch is in cinemas nationwide now and promises to be the movie of the summer! The movie follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (played by Dwayne Johnson) as he butts head with a brash new recruit (played by Zac Efron). Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay.
