8 People We Hate at the Beach

By Therese Aseoche

Moments from Volleyfriends UAAP Volleyball Kick Off SHAD

Imagine you’re in your newly-bought swimsuit and lounging around on the sand, the sun rising or setting on the horizon, and for a moment it was all perfect.

Until someone starts blasting their party beats beside you. Or some kids start yelling and running around. Or some guy tries to flirt with you.

These are just a few of the people who instantly ruin your beach vacay mood. The worst part is that you can never escape from them. Who among these do you hate the most?

The Chain-smoker

It doesn’t matter much if the sun’s too hot; if they need a drag, they will — even in a public space such as the beach. These people have no regard for those around them who may be enjoying their beach trip much less because of the carcinogenic fumes and the random cigarette butts they find buried all over the sand.


The Trash Hoarder

You can trust these people to bring all sorts of snacks, drinks, and beach chow for the group — or finish everything to the last crumb — but you can’t always trust them to throw them at the proper trash bins. They’ll sneakily (or worse, overtly) bury the little wrappers in the sand or just leave their bottles lying around as they pack up and go. Is it that hard to bring all your trash with you until you find a nearby bin?


The DJ

Who cares if you’re there to relax and read a book by the calm seashore? These people will entertain with their loud party jams from their Spotify playlists as if they’re at a spring break college field trip in Florida.


The Hype Bes

Nowhere is safe from the dreaded hypebeast squad. Not even the beach, where they’ll flaunt their “Raybans” and “Maui and Sons” swim trunks and “Supreme” tees and, of course, their proudly Baclaran-bought snapbacks.

The Vampire

These are the ones you’ll spot sometimes at a well-known beach, but you won’t understand why. Their staple outfit consists of a rash guard, leggings, a windbreaker tied around their waist, closed beach slippers, a visor, shades, and an umbrella. Nag-beach ka pa, teh??


The Absent Lifeguard

Never there when you need them… still not there when you don’t.


The Memorabilia Collector

Via Giphy

Their love for the beach and their weekend getaway drives them to immortalize the memory of their vacation through the worst way ever (which they don’t even realize or aren’t aware of): keeping sea shells and collecting sand. They’re literally taking a piece of nature and bringing it home to display on their bedside table for #InstaPerfect photos.


The Catcaller

Just because girls are in swimsuits and bikinis and are flaunting their skin doesn’t give you the freedom or right to comment on their bodies, you creepy scums.

  1. 1. the chain smokers, they are everywhere, not only on beaches butvin malls, sidewalks, corridors, jeepneys, etceteras” 2. trash hoarders are rampant and no respect for mankind; 3. cat callers or people who are born and designated to criticize and body shame whoever they want as if they are so physically perfect; 4. the DJs or simply called the noisy people. they dont know what noise pollution means and have not learned the word, respect to others.
