20 Free Sand and Water Textures for the Summer

Summer time means a lot of things. Pool parties, barbeques, hot weather, no school, vacations. Everyone's favorite spot to get away from the heat is almost universally the beach.

Sadly, it's not always possible to make the trip for some much needed rest and relaxation. If you're stuck at home, I want to help.

This roundup contains 20 free sand and water textures so you can at least pretend you're walking barefoot on the beach.

*Some textures may require attribution, so make sure you check out the licensing for each photo carefully.
