Have a look at http://www.beachesontheair.com/. A new award scheme inspired by Summits On The Air -SOTA. Beaches on the Air (BOTA) is an award scheme for radio amateurs and shortwave listeners that encourages portable operation from beaches. There are awards for activators (those who operate from the beaches) and chasers (those who contact activators from home or elsewhere). BOTA can be operated from any country or region across the world. Each country or region has its own manager, who prepares the list of recognised beaches within that country or region, which is approved by the central BOTA management team. Activators and chasers accumulate points with each QSO. Their total score is calculated by adding the square root of the number of QSOs made from each different beach (activators) or with each different beach (chasers). Activators can activate, and chasers can chase, the same beach as many times as they wish and they will always earn additional points, but there will be decreasing returns to activating the same beach due to the square-root rule, which encourages the exploration of new beaches. Certificates are available for various scores, both for activators and chasers.
