Beaches, films and television make for a great, entertaining combination. With the beautiful aesthetics of the beach, the viewers can blissfully enjoy the film and its gorgeous visuals. One might underestimate the success of using beaches as an advertising tool, but, in my opinion, it could be really effective. Directed by Savage Steve Holland, ‘Malibu Rescue’ binds the summer fest of the sand and the sea with entertainment. The film isn’t a cinematic cinematic masterpiece by any means. It is for you to sit back and enjoy in the summer. An adventure comedy, the movie tells the story of aspiring junior lifeguards who compete against snobby local kids for proving their mettle at Malibu Beach in California.
The success of the film led Netflix to make ‘Malibu Rescue: The Series’. For this article, I have taken into account shows that are built on narratives focusing on beaches. Here’s the list of best shows similar to ‘Malibu Rescue’ that are our recommendations. You can watch several of these series like ‘Malibu Rescue’ on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
10. Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County (2004-2006)
A reality television series, ‘Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County’ follows the lives of several students attending Laguna Beach High School. There is not much to say about the show’s premise, as it is as thin as a thread, but as many critics described it at the time of its original run, it is a guilty pleasure. Conceived and created by American producer Liz Gateley, the reality television series consists of three seasons, which is a testament to the moderate reception it received.
9. Falcon Beach (2005-2007)
‘Falcon Beach’, a romantic comedy-drama, is Canadian television show set in the fictional town of the titular Falcon Beach of Manitoba. The narrative of the show is built on the genre of teen dramas and follows the lives of the characters that are coming of age while dealing with their own set of personal problems and challenges. Created by Shannon Farr and John Murray, ‘Falcon Beach’ was initially a critical success but with a dipping quality over the course of the next season, it was cancelled. If you are looking for a show with the bliss of the beach and a somewhat engaging teen drama, you can pick up ‘Falcon Beach’ for a quick watch.
