80+ Short Beach Quotes that You’ll Love

Sometimes all you’re looking for is a short and simple quote. When it comes to beach quotes, there are plenty of these! Short beach quotes are super popular, so luckily for you, you have a huge range to choose from! Although only a couple of words long, these quotes are great. Some of them are witty (yes, lots of puns), some are funny beach quotes, and some are inspirational or even thought-provoking.

I’ve created this list so that you have all the best short beach quotes right at your fingertips. I’ve even divided it into two separate sections; super-short beach quotes that are 4 words or less, and then just short beach quotes that are 8 words or less.

I always say that I love short quotes. It amazes me how with so few words, a quote can say so much. That’s why with a few of the below quotes I’ve included an explanation as to why I personally like them. These are just my personal opinions, but they might help you understand the quote better, or, simply enjoy it as much as I do!
