* ''SerieS/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' has its Jersey Shore episode where the gang goes to the beach for a relaxing vacation. Though it obviously does not go that well. Except maybe for Charlie.

* ''SerieS/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' has its Jersey Shore episode where the gang goes to the beach for a relaxing vacation. Though Dennis and Dee wish to show Charlie how great it obviously does not go that well. Except maybe for Charlie.is and rekindle their fond childhood memories of vacationing there while Frank and Mac are unenthusiastic. Dennis and Dee wind up having a terrible time, while the other three find it enjoyable.

* ''GuiltyCrown'' has episode 8 which takes place mainly at the beach. However, this was done possibly to get the viewers to lower their guard, as the episode ''doubles as a WhamEpisode'', and even marks the beginning of a neverending series of [[WhamEpisode Wham Episodes]]. Seriously. Starting with episode 8, the rest of the series except the finale consists of nothing but [[WhamEpisode Wham Episodes]]!

* The short-lived ''Falcon Beach'' was pretty much nothing ''but'' this. How did this show not survive? Oh, right, ScrewedByTheNetwork, which gave it a horrible time slot. And no, this wasn't {{FOX}}'s fault. Actually, FOX would be a logical place for this show...

* Some of ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'''s 2017 Summer Games skins are essentially this; namely, for Widowmaker, Sombra, and McCree. It's also somewhat of a subversion of the typical purpose of a beach episode: Sombra's swimsuit skin is fairly modest (clearly designed more for snorkeling than lounging around, as evidenced by the rather large flippers hanging off her belt), and Widowmaker's doesn't reveal anything that hasn't already been revealed by one of her many other skins. Instead, it's McCree who has the most fanservice-y skin, with just swim trunks, a towel, and a rather large straw hat.

** The final ''Anime/VividStrike'' OVA is a Beach Episode. It's rather notable since it's the first time that the series has had a proper fanservice episode since the original series 12 years earlier (the rest had been relegated to Sound Stages or the manga.

* The anime of "LightNovel/LoveChunibyoAndOtherDelusions" has the distinction that the Beach Episode is the first serious episode. They reveal why the main female character is like she is. [[spoiler: When her dad died she started acting like this because she doesn't want to accept the reality that he's dead.]]

* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'':
** The third [[FourthWallMailSlot Megami Sound Stage]], which took place in a beach, parodied the tendency for this trope to be used as an excuse for {{Fanservice}} when Hayate cheerfully announced that she, Nanoha, Fate, and Vivio were doing the recording in swimsuits. When everyone else reacted in surprise at her comment, saying that they're all in uniform, Hayate explained that since this is an audio media, she's sure everyone listening was imagining them in swimsuits regardless of what they're wearing.

* ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' has a chapter where Kobayashi takes Tohru and Kanna to the beach, which end up leading to a discussion about family and the nature of growing up. The anime had Shouta and Lucoa come along and added SmashingWatermelons and some fanservice.

Lex's Longboard skin turns him into a SurferDude clad in swimming trunks, sunglasses, and a towel around his neck.
