When a man loves a woman, one way they'll show their love is an intimate, passionate kiss on a beach, often with ocean waves splashing over them. Often done in homage or parody of ''Film/FromHereToEternity'''s SignatureScene, which is the TropeCodifier.

Usually a subtrope of TheBigDamnKiss. Not to be confused with kissing the beach, that'd be KissingTheGround.

[[folder: Anime ]]

* There's one at the end of ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' between Yuusuke and his LoveInterest, who had been [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend dancing around the issue]] the entire series. Especially notable since the Japanese are shy about kissing in public.
* In episode 9 of ''SonicX'' (Amy On The Beach or The last Resort if you are watching the 4Kids version) has a scene where Amy Rose has a fantasy in which her and Sonic are having fun at the beach and do a kiss in front of a sunset.

* [[http://images-mediawiki-sites.thefullwiki.org/04/2/9/3/77197401205932367.jpg This rather crowded beach scene]] is how the ''[[Magazine/{{MAD}} MAD]]'' parody ''From Eternity Back to Here'' represented the movie's SignatureScene. (This was one of the earliest appearances in ''MAD'' of the {{Gag Word|s}} "potrzebie".)

[[folder: Films -- Animated ]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek 2}}'', Shrek and Fiona do this on their honeymoon, and are interrupted by a mermaid.
* In ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', after Triton gives Ariel legs (and a sparkly dress) she runs to Eric, who's still on the beach after the showdown with Ursula, and they share one, which transitions right into their wedding scene.

[[folder: Films -- Live-Action ]]

* ''Film/FromHereToEternity'', as stated above. When watching it, you may be surprised to see that it's only ''three seconds long'' (UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode prohibited kiss scenes longer than that).
* Appears in an ImagineSpot in ''Film/TheSevenYearItch'', spoofing ''From Here to Eternity'' (probably the earliest example of that, only two years later).
* The scene is so famous that when it was spoofed in ''Film/{{Airplane}}'', the filmmakers didn't ''know'' what exactly they were spoofing.
* In the Creator/EddieMurphy remake of ''Film/TheNuttyProfessor'', Sherman is watching ''Film/FromHereToEternity'' as he dozes off and has a nightmare where, while doing the scene with Carla Purdy, he unwittingly buries her into the sand because of his enormous weight.
* Homage in the beginning of the film of ''Film/{{Grease}}''.
* ''Film/MammaMia'' has Sophie and Sky do this during "Lay All Your Love on Me"... not too long before Sky's groomsmen come out of the water and pull him away for his bachelor party.
* Katniss and Peeta share one in the movie version of ''Film/TheHungerGamesCatchingFire'', though it's toned down significantly compared to the book.

[[folder: Literature ]]

* Katiss and Peeta share one in ''[[Literature/TheHungerGames Catching Fire]]''. Actually they're at it for quite a while before they are interrupted.

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca did a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPOams8jA6g rather]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DMOiaunXEU lengthy]] one on ''Your Show of Shows''. (The beach scene itself starts 5 minutes into the 2nd link. Too bad the audio doesn't sync up with the video.)
* Sonny and Brenda from ''Series/GeneralHospital'' had a completely unironic one of these. It's probably one of the most famous moments in the show's 40+ year history.
* Carol Burnett and Steve Lawrence did it on ''Series/TheCarolBurnettShow'' in a film parody called "From Here to Maternity," featuring one huge wave.
* Not on the beach but Series/{{Angel}} kisses Series/{{Buffy|the vampire slayer}} by the seaside after becoming human again in "I Will Remember You".
* ''{{Chuck}}'' has it's final shot with Sarah and Chuck kissing on a beach, and fading out to the title.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* Homer and Marge parody the famous ''"From Here To Eternity"''-kiss in TheSimpsons episode ''"And Maggie Makes Three"'', with Homer adding a little more sand in his swim short afterwards.
* Also done by Itchy and Scratchy in the episode ''"HOMR"'', after which Itchy puts a shark in his place while Scratchy closed his eyes.
