* ''Anime/{{Naruto}}'' has yet to have a Beach Episode (or have anything set anywhere near a beach). However, at the end of the third movie, there is a beach scene. And yes, Sakura is the focus of the scene. The series also has two Beach ''Ending Credits'' (one pre-timeskip featuring the main girls and one post-timeskip featuring a good number of the cast).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' has two beach episodes. The first involves the boys wondering about the girls swimsuits, only for Katie to come out wearing a dive suit because she's going snorkeling. The other episode was skipped in the English dub because it involved the boys swimsuits accidentally falling off and them improvising.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' has a couple of them, during which Kenichi's masters still manage to rope into doing some training:
** In the first one, the cast goes to an island owned by the Elder, and they try to get Kenichi to jump off a cliff so he loses his fear of water. [[SexyMentor Shigure]] finds him when he tries to escape the others and teaches him how to swim.
** Later, when [[AnimeChineseGirl Ma Renka]] shows up at the dojo, she tells Kenichi to come with her to learn how to make his own signature FinishingMove. Turns out it was just an excuse to drag him to the local indoor pool to hang out together, but everyone catches on and they go all together.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'': The anime's third season starts off with a Pool Episode (which also doubles as a RecapEpisode). Mineta and Kaminari scheme to use the pool in order to see the girls in swimsuits, but are roped into a ShirtlessScene-heavy training session with the guys instead. (Also, the girls are sporting the SchoolSwimsuit, much to their chagrin).

* ''[[VideoGame/AmnesiaOtome Amnesia: Memories]]'' does a pool event in Clover World. Most of the employees of the ''Meido no Hitsuji'' café, and the heroine's boyfriend Kent, head to an in-door heated pool for some fun and bonding experience between the employees, and the heroine and Kent. They originally planned to head to the beach, but due to the [[BizarreSeason uncommonly cold weather]], they opted for the pool.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''. Guts and his newfound TrueCompanions reach the ocean after leaving [[spoiler:Schierke's DoomedHometown]]. No swimming happened, but it did offer a break for the crew for a short while and some [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming crowning moments of heartwarming]] occurred, especially when [[spoiler:[[CreepyChild the Child]] appears for the first time in human form, [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic and Guts and Casca had a very awkward "family" scenario with him]].]]
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' conveniently has a Beach Episode that pops up right in the middle of a major arc. The twist: although the reason for the beach party is expanded into the realms of [[{{Filler}} anime filler]], the fact one occurs at all is actually based on a series of omakes [[Creator/TiteKubo Kubo]] inserted into his manga, so the premise of it is actually {{Canon}}. It focuses on the Shinigami Women's Association (accompanied with the boys). Such highlights included skimpy bikinis (including ''Captain Unohana'' wearing one of the [[BarelyThereSwimwear skimpiest swimsuits]]), Matsumoto teaching Orihime how to use her breasts as a bucket much to the horror of either Ichigo (manga) or Nanao (anime), a sandcastle-building competition, and a watermelon/tentacle monster hybrid. And Hitsugaya and the [[CrowningMomentOfFunny ice]]. [[MundaneUtility Good lad to have around in hot weather]].

* There is a set of "vacation" missions set in Costa Del Sol in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII: Crisis Core'', with FanService for both the girls (Zack in swimming trunks) and the boys (Cissnei in a bikini). Zack even beats the crap out of giant caterpillars with an umbrella... [[CrowningMomentOfFunny which does just as much damage as his regular weapon!!]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''[[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin]]'' Tim and his classmates from Brentwood Academy take a trip to the beach. Of course that night the hotel is attacked by Kobra ninjas.


* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is set in the seaside town of Beach City, but it still has an actual beach episode in "Beach Party", where Steven throws a barbecue to patch things up between the Crystal Gems and the owner of the local pizza joint.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/WonderWoman'': "Skateboard Wiz" is set on a beach complete with Diana Prince sunbathing before being accosted by {{mooks}}. She reminds them forcefully that she is a trained amazon before transforming into Wonder Woman and then really working them over.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DarlingInTheFranxx'' has one in Episode 7, where Squad 13 gets to take a break from fighting klaxosaurs and spend time at the beach.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'': The latter part of Chapter 36 has Ash's group enjoying a day off at the beach while making a stop in the Seafoam Islands. To a lesser extent, the Brock & Lucy Gaiden sidestory also features a scene where the title characters hang out at the local indoor pool.


* TheSixties saw a plethora of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beach_party_film "beach party movies"]] about fun-loving teens hanging out on the beach to a soundtrack of pop music, many of them made by Creator/AmericanInternationalPictures and starring Annette Funicello and/or Frankie Avalon. The eponymous ''Beach Party'' in 1963 kicked off the trend, and the list includes (but is not limited to) ''How to Stuff a Wild Bikini'', ''Beach Blanket Bingo'', ''Bikini Beach'', and ''Muscle Beach Party''. Not much fanservice by today's standards, with the teens being fairly clean-cut and chaste and never seen smoking or drinking anything, but at the time they were considered passably risqué.
