Notes: The Private Beach set comes with the pool and all accessories shown; it’s intended for use with the Sunny Backyard scene. The Morphing Ground Prop 2 set has river, pond, and shore presets. Add a sand textures to the morphing snow terrain for dunes, or to retexture any of the beach props — and sand castles to match.

Beach, Pool, Boardwalk, and Park Props

Notes: The Beach House would make a nice seaside/lakeside restaurant. The non-English Beach Bar signs look easy enough to retexture. I used the Tiki Bar in this post and have DS3 mats for it. The Victorian Bathing Hut is DS4 only, although the Beach Shack is similar. I bought Skip1871’s Summer Beaches awhile ago but it’s no longer for sale. It doesn’t hurt any to ask the vendor if they’d be willing to sell it privately; they are of course free to decline.

Notes: Vila’s props work fine with other figures with scaling adjustments — I used one of the Tire Rings with M4 in this image. The props from Sadie/Sam Swim can be used with other figures, but best from a distance.

Beach, Pool, and Boardwalk Food

Notes: As noted on the download pages, the vending machine props are strictly non-commercial usage. Edited to add: The Ice Cream Tricycle has conflicting TOU depending on where you download it from. If you plan on using it for commercial purposes, it’s probably a good idea to check with Papus3d about this.

Beach/Summer Sports and Activities

Notes: The Surfboard #02 prop is also at Content Paradise. Its add-on textures are mc6 files, which don’t work in DS and will have to be added manually. The Pontoon Raft is an old obj prop; it has material zones but isn’t really suited for closeups. No free beach volleyball sets — DAZ sells one here and Rendo has a more elaborate one — but it might be possible to adapt the TC Tennis Court net. There’s a net in BionicRooster’s Pool Set, as well as a basketball backboard and net that could be adapted for non-pool use. The Skaterbahn comes with a skateboard prop. Sam’s skateboard can be scaled to use for other figures.

Critters to Put In/On the Water

Great White || Ira Kanji Jelly Fish || Large Fishtail || Conch Shell || Beach Creatures || Fish || Flamingos || Water Birds

Notes: As it says at the download page, the Beach Creatures aren’t intended for closeups. The fishtail and fish are static props; the shark, ira kanji, and birds have movement morphs. I couldn’t find much in the way of fish, though your Poser/DAZ people can always catch the DAZ Bass.

Misc Stuff and Poses

summer_2d-sandmaterials summer_props-wakes summer_poses-v4beach summer_poses-familybeach summer_poses-v4wimbledon summer_poses-v4extreme summer_poses-v4running summer_poses-m4completerunner

HoBobo’s Materials Portfolio || Wake props || V4 Beach Poses || V4M4K4 Family at the Beach Poses || V4 Tennis Poses || V4 Extreme Poses || V4 Complete Runner Poses || M4 Complete Runner Poses

Notes: Hobobob has many, many sand materials (I also have a couple freebie Filter Forge sand textures here.) The V4 Extreme poses could be adapted for surfboard use, but there are also a lot of inexpensive surfing pose sets for sale at DAZ, Renderosity, and RDNA. Check Skylab’s Gallery for several M4 basketball poses.
