Beach balls are large, inflatable, lightweight toys often used to play water games such as water polo or volleyball. They became popular as they appeared in teenaged beach films of the 1960s, including Beach Party and Beach Blanket Bingo.

Beach balls are often played with in swimming pools, at concerts and festivals, and in sports arenas. The latter may be confiscated, as they have been known to interfere with the players at sporting events.

Most beach balls are about 3 feet wide, but 5 and 9-foot beach balls are also readily available. The Guinness world-record-holding largest beach ball was constructed in London in 2017 to advertise the film Baywatch. Its diameter was 65.5 feet, and it was carried on the river by a barge.

Beach balls have become an icon of oceanside fun. They are often included in beach scenes on in illustrations of trained seals balancing them on their noses. Today, not all beach balls feature the traditional multi-colored stripes. Advertisements, words, solid colors, emoji faces, or globes are common themes.
