* ''Anime/{{Another}}'' has this type of episode, in which someone gets gratuitously mauled by a boat propeller.

* ''Anime/{{Another}}'' has this type of episode, in which someone [[BreatherEpisode starts like a typical one]] and even has some funny moments... [[spoiler: until one of the boys falls victim to the class curs, collapses dead in the water, and ''then'' his corpse gets gratuitously mauled by a boat propeller.]]

* The ''Anime/PrettyCure'' franchise has one Beach Episode per season, but, notably, it's ''not'' for fanservice. The girls never wear swimsuits and they don't swim at all.

Added DiffLines:

* Episode seven of ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero'' has the girls celebrating the defeat of the Vertexes by taking a vacation to the beach. It also has some elements of a HotSpringsEpisode. It's also a [[spoiler:BreatherEpisode right before the series hits CerebusSyndrome with episode eight, which is a Wham Episode]]. TheStinger shows [[spoiler:that the Vertexes are back]].

Added DiffLines:

* The fanfic ''Fanfic/PowerRangersOceania'' acts like this to the ''entire Power Rangers canon''. Justified by taking place in Hawaii, where the Rangers will either enjoy themselves or wind up in a fight on the beach. Bonus points for one of the Rangers being a lifeguard.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' has absolutely NoHuggingNoKissing, all Matoran are {{Asexual}}, [[CanonDiscontinuity the creators have never hinted at ''any'' romantic interactions between Macku and Hewkii]], [[BlatantLies and they absolutely, most definitely did not dedicate an entire]] Beach Episode to them! And even if they did, the two certainly would not have had an AlmostKiss! I don't know where the fangirls get all these silly ideas from....

* ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' -- [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]]. The show's creators introduced one episode by saying that they needed better ratings, and as a result there would be no men in the episode, and all the women would be wearing swimsuits.

* There is a beach episode to ''Manga/MyLoveStory'' . It is light on female fanservice however Takeo gets the FemaleGaze a lot due to his girlfriend Yamato squealing over his physique. Takeo gets mad at the other boys for wanting to stare at girls swimsuits, insisting swimsuits are for swimming in and nothing else. The episode ends with Takeo and Yamato almost having their FirstKiss, though their friends ruin it.

The episode ends with Takeo and Yamato almost having their FirstKiss, though their friends ruin it.



* Episode 11 of ''Anime/OreMonogatari'' is a Beach Episode, and side characters are used to humorously acknowledge the trope, saying that the whole point of the beach is to see girls in swimsuits.
* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub''. There is a Beach Episode that features guys in bathing suits, but the one main female character is of course in a T-shirt and shorts, as she cannot reveal her gender. This was compensated for by having the club's customers prance about in swimwear. HilarityEnsues? Well, not really. Instead, [[spoiler:Kyouya acts like a creepy sexual offender, and Tamaki teaches Haruhi a [[ValuesDissonance vaguely sexist]] lesson]].

* ''Manga/WanderingSon'' has one non-traditional beach chapter. Middle schooler Maho wants to visit the beach with her boyfriend but her OverprotectiveDad won't let her go out alone with him. He makes him take her younger sibling, much to her annoyance. We never see Riku, Maho, or Nitori in swimwear and the chapter actually mostly takes place on the train to the beach. It features one of the most notable instances of Maho showing she cares for her little sister, when she freaks out over the thought someone 'mistook' Nitori for a girl and kidnapped her.

* ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Super Mario Sunshine]]'' is set on the tropical Isle Delfino. Two of the stages are calm, relaxing beaches (one of which even has a hotel).

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' does this in both series. In the first, they're children, and it's summer vacation, so there's nothing surprising about them going to the beach (and a water park). In ''[[TimeSkip Alien Force]]'', they're teenagers, and it's apparently later in the year (as everyone's normal day clothes have long sleeves, a jacket, etc), but they still find a reason to go to a lake and splash around for five minutes. Suprisingly enough however, it only lasts a few seconds; no episode is ''entirely'' about them being at the beach.
** ''Con of Rath'' subverts the trope by having the three protagonists ''about'' to go to the beach... then an alien ambassador comes to ask them for a mission. According to Gwen, this situation happens quite often when they try to go to the beach.

Added DiffLines:

* Unlike [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender its predecessor]], ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' had no beach themed episodes. In an early episode however the characters did swim in an indoor pool. Apparently fashions have become more conservative in the past several decades as the boys wear {{Old Timey Bathing Suit}}s instead of being shirtless.
