magazine for beach lovers

Looking to reach beach lovers around the world?

Beachcombing is the print and digital magazine devoted to beachcombing, beach destinations, and coastal living, with an audience of beach-loving, well-traveled readers who are passionate about sea glass, seashells, fossils, rock collecting, and coastal living. 

Our readers are beach lovers who appreciate the finer things associated with beaches. They have a sense of adventure and love to explore coastal communities, plus they are attracted to everything related to the beach — vacations, jewelry, gear, lifestyle, decor, conservation, and more. Magazine subscribers are looking for information and inspiration about products, lifestyle, and decorating related to the shore. Many subscribers consistently tell us that ours is the only magazine they read cover to cover.

The magazine is distributed to a worldwide audience six times a year — and our website and social media pages reach an enthusiastic, engaged 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.
