The beach is the perfect place to kick back and catch some rays. Beaches also offer opportunities to go surfing, play beach volleyball, sunbathe, swim, and plenty of more activities to entertain yourself or your family.
For cigar smokers, however, our hobby needs a bit more thought behind it. Smoking cigars at the beach carries a few unspoken rules you should keep in mind to ensure a pleasant experience for you and those around you.
Be respectful and courteous
When lighting up on the beach, the key thing to remember is to always be respectful and courteous to others. Similar to all social situations, it’s an appreciated gesture. If someone expresses discomfort with your cigar smoking, consider their perspective and move away from them.
Check local regulations
Local regulations are significant to follow when lighting up a hearty smoke at the beach. Some beaches restrict smoking, so it’s always worth checking if you can legally smoke there to avoid any problems. Some beaches also provide designated smoking areas to enjoy your smoke peacefully with no issues.
When you arrive at the beach, you need to consider if there is a slight breeze. No matter how soft the breeze is, this will determine where your smoke is carried. When lighting up, be aware not to impact others with your smoking experience and try to sit further away from them if possible to always be polite and accommodating.
Dispose of your cigar correctly
When you’ve had your final draw, and the cigar is finished, ensure you dispose of the remains properly and don’t leave any cigar stubs lying around, as this can harm the environment and make the beach appear untidy.
Learning cigar etiquette for the beach is key to a unique beach smoking experience and once you’ve learned these rules you can select your chosen premium smoke. We’ve chosen some good cigars for the beach to help you make the most of a beach vacation.
