A Day At The Beach is a Barney Home Video released in July 20, 1997. Not to be confused with the 1988/1989 Backyard Gang video of the same name.


On a hot summer day, the whole Backyard Gang is excited to go to the beach tomorrow, but this weekend, they could not go there because their dad has to go to work. Disappointed, no one knows what to do until Barney comes to life. By using their imaginations, Barney transports the kids to the beach in a flying swimming pool. From searching for shells to exploring a pirate ship, Barney and his friends have fun exploring what the beach has to offer. They even go under the sea, meeting Barney's friend Molly The Mermaid.
