Beach
Beach that Owns
A beach.

Beaches are a type of community lot in The Sims: Vacation, The Sims 2: Bon Voyage and The Sims 3, and also a lot assignment in The Sims 3.

The Sims

In The Sims: Vacation, one of the three distinct areas of Vacation Island is a beach area, which has three lots. Sims will normally wear swimsuits in this area, though they cannot go into the sea.

While it is not possible to create beach lots, it is possible to create lots that look like beaches, such as SimCity Beach in Downtown. However, Sims will not be able to rent sandcastle kits on these lots.

The Sims 2

It wasn't until The Sims 2: Bon Voyage that players were able to create their own beaches. The beach is a new land type that becomes available once Bon Voyage is installed. Premade beaches are available in vacation areas such as Twikkii Island, but players can also create their own beaches in neighborhoods.

To create a beach, open the Lots and Houses bin from the neighborhood screen. Click on the Specialty Lots button next, and options to create special lots such as dormitories[University], hotels[Bon Voyage], apartments[Apartment Life], etc. Click on the Create Beach option in the left-hand area, next to the thumbnails of special lots.

If Seasons is installed, the ground will not get completely covered in snow during Winter. Snow will still fall, but very rarely and only lightly.

Note: A beach lot cannot be placed unless it is adjacent to a body of water. An easy default location in which the player can build a beach lot is Bluewater Village.

Player tips

The Sims 3

Gameplay description

Attracts
Sims with the Athletic and Loves the Outdoors traits.
Deters
Sims with the Hates the Outdoors trait.
Encourages NPCs to learn
NPCs are encouraged to use the Athletic skill on this lot.

Although Sims can visit beaches in The Sims 3, they cannot swim (returned in The Sims 3 Seasons and Patch 42), comb for seashells, build sandcastles, or watch the waves. They can only sunbathe on the loungers, play chess, fish, cook and eat food, or make some drinks at a bar. Players can use a beach as party venue. Since beaches can be large and have plenty of refreshments and activities, that is a good choice.

Beach lots attract Sims in a similar way to gym and pool lots. Beaches often feature grills and deck chairs. Sims can also go jogging around the beach at the morning.

As a lot assignment, beaches seem to do very little as of right now. They function much like parks.

In The Sims 3: Island Paradise, beaches are expanded. NPC Sims will now swim in the ocean autonomously and Sims can now sunbathe on beach towels and play in the sand. It is also where the Lifeguard profession takes place.

Areas with no beaches

There are no beaches in Riverview, though the river and fish hatchery makes up for it. There are no lots assigned as beaches in the World Adventures destinations of Al Simhara, Champs Les Sims, and Shang Simla.
