* ''VisualNovel/{{Shuffle}}'': The first half of episode 9 involves the whole cast enjoying themselves at the beach, including Asa getting [[SlipperySwimsuit her bikini top washed away by a large wave]]. The second half takes a slightly more serious turn to get in some character development between Rin and Sia, but it still ends on a silly note.

Naturally, it also acts as a BreatherEpisode in [[StoryArc arc-heavy]] stories. However, it's not uncommon for the episode to be a fake-out breather and suddenly take a serious turn with a dramatic plot twist, such as if a storm hits, a threat from below the deep decides to emerge, or there's a SharkAttack.

Often combined with or immediately following a RecapEpisode, in a lot of shows, the Beach Episode generally exists [[{{Fanservice}} solely for the purpose of getting the cast into]] [[SwimsuitIndex bathing suits]], either for titillation or just because some people want to see what the characters' bathing suits look like. Sometimes the bathing suits can be PlayedForLaughs if they look similar to the characters' already-LimitedWardrobe's. For example, if Alice generally wears purple, expect her swimsuit to be purple too. In shows that small children can watch as well as the adults (therefore being child-friendly), they have a beach episode because the beach is typically considered fun. [[FetishRetardant Sadly]] for the {{fanboy}}s, beach episodes are usually (except for the romance genre in which it is part of the plot) considered extreme examples of {{filler}} and [[OffModel treated accordingly]]. Sometimes you'll meet the SurferDude here, and the MuscleBeachBum. Also a good spot for a random BeautyContest. SmashingWatermelons is a popular party game, as is volleyball. Also expect some {{Beachcombing}} and someone getting [[BeachBury buried in sand]].

And since people usually go barefoot at the beach to feel the sand and surf, [[DoesNotLikeShoes shoes and socks are usually the first things to go]]. Even if the cast isn't changing into bathing suits, they'll probably shed their footwear at the very least to avoid being labeled a tourist like the derided "[[WesternAnimation/RocketPower shoobie]]", so don't be surprised if this happens, and/or this sets up someone [[AgonyOfTheFeet to step on something sharp or jagged while barefoot]] (often followed by a GreenAesop if that something happens to be a piece of beach litter). Also expect some {{Beachcombing}} and someone getting [[BeachBury buried in sand]].
