Looking to reach beach lovers around the world?
Beachcombing is the print and digital magazine devoted to beachcombing and beach destinations. The magazine has a worldwide audience of active, well-travelled readers who are attracted to everything — vacations, jewelry, gear, lifestyle, decor, conservation, and more — related to the beach. Our subscribers consistently tell us that ours is the only magazine they read cover to cover.
Our readers are not sitting in chairs or on towels at the beach. They are active beachcombers always looking for that next treasure — and they appreciate the finer things associated with the coast. They have a sense of adventure, ready to explore the coastal communities around the world.
The print and digital magazine is distributed to a worldwide audience six times a year — and our website and social media pages reach an enthusiastic audience. In addition to mailing directly to subscribers, the magazine is also distributed through retailers throughout the world. And, our staff attend coastal festivals where the magazine is available to thousands more people.
Holiday Marketplace Advertising
Beachcombing Magazine Volume 27 (November/December 2021) will feature a special advertising section where you can get your products and services in front of a worldwide audience looking for beach-related gifts during the holiday season with magazine and website ads. Beachcombing Holiday Marketplace advertising includes a print ad plus placement on the Beachcombing online Holiday Marketplace page through December 31, 2021.
The November/December magazine ships in mid-October 2021 — and your ad is live on the website as soon as you provide artwork — so you will have visibility throughout the holiday season. Your online ad includes a link to your website or online shop.
Please contact us if you are interested in participating in this virtual holiday market.
