According to the 2013 Expedia FlipFop Report, beachgoers in India (52%) reported participating the most in making sand castles. Indian beachgoers – who overall led the most active beach lives –played the most water sports (52%), got the most massages (47%) and surfed the most (41%).
Walks on the beach were the most popular activity for American beachgoers (78% participate), followed by “people-watching” (64%), swimming (61%) and sunbathing (56%).
About half or more of beachgoers in Canada, UK, Ireland, India, Australia, US, New Zealand and South Korea described accessibility to alcohol as “at least somewhat” important when considering where to take a beach vacation.
What this means: To me it means seems that the survey is flawed. Most Indian beaches are full of people eating and splashing in the water. I don’t see a lot of what I would call “water sports” or surfing. I can buy the making sandcastles part, however.
