'Watch the waves break on the bay
Soft white sands, a blue lagoon
Cocktail time, a summer's tune
A whole night's holiday!'
Summers kicking in!
Time to load that playlist and hit the beach with swimsuits and suntan.
Here's how Bollywood makes most of its time on the beach. Take notes.
All those hours in the gym can finally be put to use. Slip into a slinky bikini and slay like Sunny Leone.
Flaunt your beach style in a red-hot number accessorized with chunky beads and bangles like Bipasha Basu.
If you can't leave work at home, carry work with you to the beach like Hrithik Roshan proving you can mix business with pleasure after all.
Resist pulling one's leg to an altogether different level like Amitabh Bachchan and Zeenat Aman.
If you got it, flaunt it applies for guys too, asserts John Abraham.
Organise a flash mob like Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta and destroy everyone's peace of a famously tranquil beach.
There are all kinds of activities one can indulge in while on the beach. Get a body massage from, hopefully, someone less chatty than Johnny Lever.
If feeling adventurous, go horse riding like Sunny Deol and Madhuri Dixit.
Nothing like a game of ball or two on the beach, insists Helen.
Seaside running race is just as fun, discover Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan.
Perform ballet on the beach like Jacqueline Fernandez.
Balle Balle will do just as much demonstrates Akshay Kumar and gang.
Play fancy dress with your friends, a la Ram Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Ritesh Deshmukh.
Unleash your inner mermaid like Kareena Kapoor.
Observe the beach dress code.
In other words, flaunt those long, long, looong legs like Deepika Padukone.
Basically, no night gowns, please? Even if you're Dimple Kapadia and get away wearing pretty much anything.
Keep the beach clean and tidy. Do not litter it with brightly painted matkas for heaven's sake!
And, finally, learn from the Dil Chahta Hai boys how to turn that beach getaway into heaven on earth.
