Most of our island is surrounded by beaches, so there’s no better time to create a year-round tropical paradise.
It is true that some beaches on our islands can be narrow or have a certain shape.
This can make decorating our beaches a little tricky.
Well, if you’re looking for ideas on what to do with your New Horizons beaches, we have plenty of inspiration for you.
42. Beach shop

This little shop is perfect for people with green fingers!
Create your own little botanical shop on the waterfront.
All you need to get started are a few custom cabs.
Basically, you add a few iron shelves, a table and fill it with different types of plants to create your store.
Plant lots of coconut palms nearby to tie the outdoor space together.
The company will grow rapidly. Because you can never have too many plants, right?
41. Seafood shack

Make your beach the hippest place to be with this super cute fish restaurant design!
You can decorate this beachfront dining area with lots of rattan furniture, such as tables and chairs.
Although these items are brown by default, you can customize them to be white.
You can also add a custom stand and some simple signs with your own seafood lettering. Or you can even add a menu here.
Don’t forget to complement the view with many shells and objects on the beach.
40. Beach campsite

Every tourist who visits your island will want to stay forever after this beach experience.
This campsite has everything to make your holiday unforgettable.
To create this look on your own beach, start by installing different types of custom wood flooring.
You can then sprinkle hedges and flowers on the sand.
Wooden furniture is essential to achieve this look, so make sure you have plenty of it. Also add other elements you like, like…. For example, a hammock, barrels, picnic boxes or a clay oven.
We covered a handful of campground design ideas in another article, but this one is really right on the beach. I don’t know if it gets any better than this!

What could be more relaxing than a bath with flowers by the sea?
Probably nothing, I’d say.
With this design, you can enjoy the sunset in your own bathroom.
Simply place the tub in your favorite spot on the beach and surround the spot with different types of flowers.
You can also add rocks, cacti or plants to give this space an extra dimension.
Also, don’t forget to add some custom flooring, like a few pieces of wood.
38. Turtle Beach

Save the turtles with this cute turtle beach idea.
Place the turtle designs directly on the sand, then carefully place the turtle shells over your designs.
This is such a fun idea, it looks like the turtles are going into the ocean for the first time!
You can also plant flowers and pick the petals to create a beach look.
Such a simple design, but it looks great. And let’s face it, it’s so cute!
37. Cinema on the beach
image source from @Precocious_LC
Did someone say the cinema was on the beach? Yes, please.
Watching your favorite movie at sunset is the perfect day for me.
All you need for a movie screen is three simple panels. You can then customize them with personalized movie title patterns.
If you put it by the beach, you’ll see your movie screen come to life!
Then open your favorite quilt pattern, and add pillows.
Complete the package with a popcorn machine for those indispensable snacks before the movie, and of course don’t forget the projector!

This laundromat may not be typical of the beach, but wow, is it beautiful.
Start with a custom wood floor, then add some clotheslines.
Don’t forget to add a few wooden buckets to continue the theme.
Complete the look by adding color throughout, as well as custom masonry patterns.
How about a rocking chair? So you can sit back and watch the sunset.
35. Massage area
image source by @jadejutsuu
I love this little massage room!
It is the perfect place for you and your residents to relax after a busy day of fishing and bug hunting.
To recreate this effect, start by adding lots of bamboo objects, like lamps and a table.
You can then place a few lounge chairs by the ocean to create a casual look.
And a few extra vending machines in case anyone needs a cold drink while lying in the sun.
34. Mad Hatter Tea Party
Image source @m00nlit_bat
Celebrate your birthday like Alice in Wonderland with a beach party.
It’s very simple: all you need is a couple of tables side by side on the beach.
Line up the tables with the chairs, and it’s even better to use chairs from different furniture sets. To achieve this look, you need to combine and coordinate your furniture.
Then decorate the table with cups and cakes to get the party started.
You can even add a cup of tea on the beach to complete the look.
33. Fairy Beach
image source by @malamoje
This cherry blossom paradise is the perfect way to turn your beach into a fairy tale.
If you try this, you can add a cherry colored floor pattern to make it even more special.
Of course, don’t forget to add a magazine and some fun seat cushions.
Add lots of pink flowers and cherry trees to keep the theme going.
If you’re adventurous, you can also add a giant butterfly model. If you enter the same error three times, you will get the ordered error template back. So it will take some time, but it is well worth it.
32. Beach gallery
Image Source by @_moon_
Who said art galleries on the beach didn’t exist?
This is the perfect way to show off your fake art or sculptures that you probably bought at Redd.
You can even take the opportunity to show off some of your own artwork!
Put it all on your beach, and add some nice braided paths between the exhibits.
Make sure there are plenty of coconut palms and flowers to make it a gallery like no other.
Soon the villagers will be lining up to visit your art gallery. And if you’re lucky, you might sell a piece or two!
31. Mermaid beach
Image source: @saygrool
Hopefully a mermaid will swim to your beach with this perfect mermaid pattern.
It is very impressive and will definitely turn heads on your island.
To achieve this look, cover your beach with your favorite mermaid floor pattern. And place as much mermaid furniture as possible.
You can also add palm lights. Normally they are created in the default color, green, but you can use some settings to change the color to bright pink.
Make sure there are plenty of shellfish in this area as well.
You can even make a little mermaid costume to complete the look!
30. Mini Surf Shack
image source by @PinaCocoCoTweets
Isn’t this surfer cottage on the beach adorable?
It looks so cozy and comfortable!
To make it yourself, add a couple of surfboards and some funky beach towels on the side.
You can then put some wooden furniture next to your beach to complete the surf cottage feel, and throw in some custom cushions as well.
Don’t forget your cooler, because nothing beats an ice cold drink after a hard day’s surfing.
29. Secret solar site
image source @Lewmzi
Turn your secret beach into your own little oasis with this fantastic design idea.
If you need rest, it’s worth it. As you sit comfortably on your secret beach, you certainly won’t be disturbed!
Lay down your towel and relax by the sea.
But no beach is complete without plenty of snacks, and don’t forget your picnic bag.
You can also bring a radio to listen to music while you are sunbathing.
28. Recreation Terrace
Image source by @OtterIsle
This little beach terrace is the perfect place to relax, and I live for it!
Add your favorite wooden deck to create a deck on the sand.
If so, add a few lounge chairs so you can relax and get away from all the hassle of the island.
Fill this cute little space with lots of coconut palms and shells, and don’t forget to add a ping pong table!
Finally, you can even add your own character to the entry.
27. Secret Stone Beach
image source @LilithMorii
If you want to try something different on your secret beach, get ideas from this inspiring woman.
Add many stone objects to your beach to capture this atmosphere, and you can also place some plants around the area.
Don’t forget the tiki torches to add to the mystery.
And clay pots would also be great in this area.
And finally, of course, you can add your own Stonehenge. You can get this item from Gulliver when he washes up on your beach. Make sure you help him put the pieces of his communicator together and he will reward you with a good time.
26. Elegant Beach
Image Source By Degree
Give your beach a facelift with this super cute design.
You’ll need a custom design to place white wood planks in the sand, but that’s probably the hardest part.
Then add a white baby tent and put teddy bears outside.
Be sure to add hedges, plants and a variety of pink and white flowers for a bit of nature.
Finally, add white lanterns and tree trunks around the circle. And your beach will exude elegance.
25. Hidden Sands
image source by @headstone_666
With this idea, you can turn your secret beach into the perfect cool zone.
I love this simple idea because it’s the perfect way to decorate your secret beach and still keep it a little modest.
Just scatter some logs and cardboard boxes in the sand.
You can also add a small wooden stool with your favorite personalized pillow.
Then add a bunch of deciduous trees to hide your beach.
Finish off with a barrel and some plants. That’s it! Simple.
Image source by @M09N20
Relax with a cup of coffee at this charming café located right on the beach.
This is such a fun idea, and it’s pretty easy to make.
Put in a wooden floor and add a special box for the coffee pot.
Then add lots of chairs and tables. You can also use a mix of chairs and magazines to create a mixed style. It works very well in this example.
And don’t forget to add a nice menu board and signage.
23. Ice-cream parlour on the beach
Image Source @anophele
No beach is complete without an ice cream parlour!
So why not set up your own ice cream stand on the beach?
All you need are a few custom chairs and stands; you can also customize them with your favorite ice cream design.
You can also put up some simple signs with the ice cream menu, so the villagers know exactly what you have to offer.
Add popsicles and mixers to your booths to create a real ice cream parlor atmosphere.
Finish it off with a pair of tapered spheres on the side!
22. loose tea
image source from @calypso.acnh
A dream of a snack!
Imagine going back to that nice beach restaurant with your friends.
If you are considering making this addition to your island, you can read how to do it here:
Add magazine benches that can also double as tables. Then put a lot of pillows on the sides for your guests to sit at the table.
You can also decorate your tables as you see fit with drinks, appetizers, and maybe even some decorative flowers.
There won’t be another tea party like this one.
21. Beach soccer
image source by @millicrossing
Want to play football but don’t have a place to play?
Well, that’s the case now, with this amazing football field on the sand.
If you want to try it yourself, you must first define the custom theme for the field itself.
Once you have it on the ground, you can add two targets, one at each end.
It’s easy to get footballs by going to Nook Stop and redeeming your Nook Miles. Each goal will cost you 4,000 miles.
Finally, add seating for spectators and, of course, the ball!
20. Sand type
Image source TigerDoodle
This is such a fun and easy way to decorate.
Sand art is super underrated for ACNH, but it does make a difference.
To create sand art on your island, simply create a custom design for the model or models you want.
You can use already created templates or even create your own, so you can be as creative as you want.
19. Milk station
Image Source @ Acorn Barrels
Do you trade a lot?
Have you ever thought about building your own commercial space, but on the beach?
This idea is perfect for important things, whether it’s DIY recipes or furniture.
It’s a good idea to place this area near your airport as well. This way visitors can come and trade with you without disturbing other parts of your island.
All you need is a few custom booths to display the items you have.
And it’s definitely worth installing a custom floor covering that gives the whole thing a sense of purpose.
18. Beach Grill
image source by @clockworkcatcus
The best summer is a barbecue, right?
Well, at ACNH you can set up your own barbecue on the beach!
All you need are wooden benches and tables. Set out plates and drinks to get things ready for the party.
You can then add a cutting board to the back and, of course, a grill grate!
You can also add some flowers and coconut palms to the beach area to create a real backdrop.
17. concealed escape route

Your secret beach can be a hidden retreat.
To recreate this design, you can add a swivel chair for maximum relaxation.
Then, decorate the space with tree trunks and wooden pieces for a relaxed look.
You can even get a wooden duck and shells on the beach. A little sea life always adds to the aesthetic.
It’s such a simple and easy design, but it looks great and can transform any flat beach into an Instagram-worthy spot.
16. Slum Party Zone
image source by @moonbamak
Did someone say sleep under the stars?
Create this super fun camp on your beach just for you and your friends to host the ultimate CNSA sleepover.
To make this great idea a reality, start by setting up some baby tents. Then spread out the wooden furniture as well.
Cover the area with half-moons and new lights for a beautiful evening light.
It’s even a great place to watch the stars, because you’ll never miss a shooting star.
15. Zen Beach
image source by @GardenParking
Create your own rock pool on your beach to stay cool at all times.
You need a custom design to add rocks to the sand, but that’s the hard part.
You can add a hammock for an afternoon nap.
Don’t forget to add wooden fences around the area, as well as wooden or rattan furniture.
You can also add a wooden bench as a table where you can put some plants.
And of course, let’s not forget the rock pool.
14. Boating beach
image source by @LukiEskiE
I love this secret beach of boats.
It’s a bit of a pirate dock, isn’t it?
Design them yourself by adding your own design panels that go around your secret beach.
You can also add a ship’s wheel and a harp to make it look like a real boat.
And don’t forget to add a barrel and a boat in a bottle to complete the look.
Additionally, the addition of the coconut tree and wooden fence continue the Animal Crossing theme.
13. Beach station
image source by @chasu28game
It’s about time your island got its own transportation system, isn’t it?
Well, this one probably doesn’t work anymore (it runs on sand…).
But it’s a great idea!
You just need a custom design for the railroad tracks that run across the beach. And if you want to add a stone floor to your station, you’ll need a different template for that.
Then add white seating and paint the entire room.
Finally, we add a lighthouse. You can also build a nice gazebo at the end of your beach to watch the horizon.
12. Beach Arcade
photo source by @AnmlXingz
Check out this arcade game on the beach. There is even a karaoke machine!
The area offers everything you need to have the best night possible with your friends.
Just put a few floors on the stretch of beach you’ve chosen, and then you can add all the slots you can find!
This is probably one of the coolest game ideas for ACNH. You’re right in the water!
Don’t forget to add a pool table and a microphone for karaoke!
You can even add a small seating area and table. Before you know it, this is the hottest place on the island.
11. Tropical Beach

Have you ever wished summer could last all year long? So do I.
And with this simple theme, it could.
Turn your beach into a tropical paradise with this summer beach pattern.
Make sure there are lots of coconut palms around, as well as lots of bright flowers.
You can also place a vending machine and sun loungers so that your visitors and villagers can relax.
10. Simple Surf Shop
image source: ailan
Earlier in this article we looked at the surf area, but the surf shop design is much smaller.
Simply draw a custom pattern on the ground to create raised wooden planks, then place a fence around the area.
Again, add custom booths that you can design with your favorite floral design.
But the main thing? Addition of surfboards.
You can deposit as many different types as you want.
Don’t forget to leave your snorkel and wetsuit in the area so you’re always ready to ride the waves.
9. Beach Gym
Image Source: Nordic country
The villagers of Jock will thank you for this seaside gym.
All you need is a path to the beach of your choice and a fence around the area.
You can add custom flooring to your training area if you wish, or leave it just a sand area.
And you can also name your gym and make your own sign for the entrance.
Complete this exercise by adding any exercise equipment you can find.
Now you can pump iron until the sun goes down.
8. Cherry Blossom Beach
Photo source Mailindis
Calling all cherry blossom lovers! This beach pattern is for you.
You’ll need a custom design to add moons and stars to the sand, or you can even make your own. But that’s probably the hardest part.
You can then add a set of soothsayers and different types of candles to create a real setting. At night, it will look fantastic.
To get the final look, add as many cherry blossom elements as possible.
And of course you can’t forget the famous cherry blossom lamps.
7. Beach Wedding Passage
source image @brandy_duong
There’s no wedding like a beach wedding!
Isn’t this little ocean beach perfect?
You need a custom template to make the passport, and you can even make your own template to put your own stamp on it.
Next, you have to outfit the place with a lot of wedding stuff.
Wedding items will be available at Reese & Cyrus throughout the month of June. If you help them take wedding photos, they will reward you with crystals that you can exchange for wedding furniture.
To complete this wedding venue idea, plant lots of flowers and place some candles along the aisle.
6. Tiki Bar
Blind Spot Image Source.
Start your summer early with this awesome tiki bar building.
All you need for this masterpiece is to collect as many bamboo items as you can get your hands on.
Start by installing a bamboo fence around the property, and you can also add bamboo shelves with custom floor designs.
Don’t forget to get a table top and seat cushions tailored to your needs.
You can put holders with fringes on them and place things like mixers and coconuts on them to give it a real tiki feel.
Finally, add some large shells and a few tiki torches.
5. Red Wanted
image source by @scalesofgrey
I love this creative secret beach design, it’s so much fun!
Create your own little ambush on the beach in search of Redd, everyone’s favorite criminal fox.
You can use a design you have already created to add to your panel, or create your own design to place on your panel.
Then put it on your secret beach.
Finish off the area with a barrel and some fossils, or whatever suits the view. Prison bars are a good fit here!
And don’t forget to add a light to illuminate the sign at night.
4. Sun Bridge
Image source by @glitter_8
I think we have reached the pinnacle of beach aesthetics with this idea.
Your residents will thank you, as it is the ideal place to enjoy the sound of the sea.
All you need is a custom design for your wood deck, and that’s a big part of the job.
Install this along your beach. In fact, you only need a small portion of the beach, which is ideal.
Once the floor is laid, all that’s left to do is install loungers, plants and tables.
And just like that, you created a masterpiece on the beach.
3. Pirate beach
image source by @nanimalcwossing
I think we all knew he would be on the list somewhere, right?
You can get pirate items from Gulivarrr, so help him if you find him washed up on your beach.
If you complete his assignments, he will reward you with various pirate items that you can use for this awesome strategy game.
You can add barrels and gold bars to get in the mood, and you can really bring this look to life by adding a treasure chest.
It will look great when Redd docks his boat.
Extra points for the pirate costume!
2. Flea market
image source @acnhanae
If you’re looking for something unusual for your beach, why not a flea market?
It’s a fun idea to display and sell your fake Redd drawings.
You can also customize stalls with other vintage items you want to sell.
The shelves are a great addition to this view because they are already filled with books.
Finally, add some flowers and trees, but you can be creative with this. Make this idea yours!
1. Stargazer Beach
image source by jhsbum
There’s nothing like an evening under the stars.
To do it yourself, you first need a custom quilting template.
Once you’ve laid that out, you can put picnic gear on it.
Use things like fruit baskets and a picnic basket to tie the look together.
And maybe some coconut palms and a bunch of flowers to make the decor.
Of course, you also need to install a telescope. Everyone wants to see the stars up close!
And so you have the most beautiful beach where you can see everything and admire the stars.
