I think I would like to be barefoot at the beach. Or else just sandals but not shoes.

I prefer to wear flip flops instead.. it will make me feel a lot more comfortable. and I don't have to worry whether it gets wet.

I prefer flip-flops too. They are easier to rinse off in the water while your walking. I kick up a lot of sand and if I am waring sandals it gets all in the straps and stuff then I have to pull them off, with a flip-flop you can just slide them off.

Sandals!! I find myself wearing flip-flops and sandal-type shoes A LOT more than regular shoes! I guess I like the feeling of my feet being free...

When I am at the beach, I usually wear flipflop. They are easy to take off and clean from send. Even if I want only to walk on the shore, close to water, than still it is easier to have flipflop, or eventually sandals. In my opinion shoes are too warm for a beach. Plus the feet won't get a good rest in shoes.Our feet should get some relax too, and the beach is a great place to do so. If you are just walking on the shore close to water, still it is better to have flipflops than shoes, as they may get wet easily (and your socks too), and it is a problem to dry them out or to clean fast.

Definitely sandals! Why wear shoes? I don't understand why you'd wear shoes on the beach unless you plan to go hiking or cycling as well. Sandals are more breathable. It also dries faster when it gets wet. Sand and water are nothing against sandals, but leave stains on shoes. But overall, I'd prefer wearing flip flops to the beach! It's the most comfortable type of footwear even when I'm not at the beach!

neither. i'd rather much go barefoot when i'm at the beach. i like the feeling of the sand between my toes. also, i like it that i feel the heat of the sand or the coolness of the water in my soles. it's a very relaxing and soothing feeling.

I don't like going to the beach as I just hate it when the sand gets stuck everywhere; this happens with every type of shoe. I guess I would prefer crocs as I could wash them clean in the sea easily :)

I prefer wear sandals. It's cooler and easier to walk into on sand. Shoes will only make your feet sweat and when the sand gets in, you have to remove just to get rid of the sand while with sandals, you just wiggle your feet to remove it. ;)

Sandals, because they are made for the beach.. Shoes would only allow more dirt to get into them.. And so does sandal too. I would leave the shoes for when, I need to go on the rides or so.. Hot shoes, makes my feet very hot and sweaty.. I dislike this feeling very much..

Hi patzel, I feel more relaxed and comfortable to stroll along the beach with bare feet. But if I have to choose, of course I would like to pick flat-heeled flip flops. The loose sand of the beach goes in my shoes easily and this always makes me feel uneasy so I have to take the trouble to take off my shoes every now and then to get rid of the sand in them. It is much easier and more convenient to remove the sand trapped if wearing slippers. What’s more my foot wears would always wet by the sea water readily if having activity at the beach.

I wear shoes all the time and never sandals since I have really unattractive feet.
