List Rules These songs are all about the beach or going to the beach, and are not necessarily songs to listen to at the beach

Who doesn't love the feeling of sand between their toes on a hot day? Here is our list of the best songs about the beach, which also includes surf songs. Sunshine, warm weather and soothing waves, the beach has all the ingredients for inspiring a great song. Many of the songs on this list of songs about the beach specifically mention hanging out on the shore, while others are fantastic pop hits that sound best on a beach full of friends.

Really, this whole list could be from the Beach Boys catalog of hits, but we chose to only include a few like “Surfin' U.S.A.” and “Wipeout.” Jack Johnson is another musician with tons of amazing beach tunes. His beach song, “Surf Song” ranks high on this list. Katy Perry's hit “California Gurls” is sure to get the party started under the summer sun.

One of the songs on this top beach songs list is about an article of clothing women wear to the beach. That track is “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie” by Brian Hyland. “Summer Nights” from the Grease soundtrack is another of the best beach songs.

Which song about the beach is your all-time favorite? Let us know in the comments and be sure to add any top beach songs we may have missed.
