I love winter and I bet you do too but if you’re like me you probably don’t like the cold very much. You might be wishing you could take a trip to a beach somewhere right about now. Well, if you can’t make it to the beach yourself how about taking your blog there? Today’s new theme, Beach, will let you do just that.
Originally developed by Gibbo for Drupal Thailand, the Beach theme can bring the warmth of Thailand’s shores to your blog all year round. But the Beach theme isn’t only just sand, sun, and sea. It has 4 different post formats built-in for short Status and Aside posts, and special styles for Quote and Gallery posts. Beach even has a bonus vertical menu area in the header.
You can read more about the Beach theme’s great new features in the Theme Showcase or activate it on your WordPress.com blog right now. Beach will be available soon in the WordPress.org theme directory for self-hosted WordPress users.
Bonus: If it’s too hot where you are right now and you’d like to take your blog someplace cold, give the Iceburgg theme a shot! Pine trees, snowy hills, and cool colors might just be what your blog needs right now. :)

I may have just found my new favorite theme! Gonna test drive over the weekend!
Really “cool” looking. :)
It is honestly so beautiful, breathing new life into the WordPressers However, any snow-covered Themes for us here in Greece? Please send us some snow…and we can send you as many beaches as you like and plenty of sunshine. It is just a joke.Your allowances to your bloggers are always so generous, hardworking WordPress staff.
Once again congrats!!!
We need more themes, Bro. :)
I love these types of themes, they give a bit of colour to your blog!
More like this please!
Way to make us all look forward to warmer days! :)
Great theme. Beaches are always nice to look at. But give me New York City anytime.
Seems to be interesting!
Very nice one.
Relaxing. Very relaxing.
Nice theme. Cool for summer. =)
Wow that looks awesome! It’s totally unique, compared to the other themes. A big city theme would be sweet too, or a relaxing resort type theme.
Awesome job, i wish i had a reason to use it! I shared it with my friend who is starting a blog on writing children’s books, so this would go perfect! Thanks, and keep up the great work, i love it. :)
Looks good. :)
I like it. Seems good for a little change every now and then. :)
FIANLLY! Color! Keep em’ coming! I’m so happy!
Like it and very much but – still NOT me. Like everything else in the world I have to feel “it’s me”. Water Yes, Sand (beach) Yes but less Palmtrees – (doesn’t mean i don’t love Palmtrees in nature) maybe to “grind” a rock would “be cut out for” me – be mooore me. Sorry. But. Love the idea.
VERY nice edition to the other themes.
Now the question: Do I change MY theme? Hmmmmm….
This looks great!
I wish it really was as warm as it looks on there!! :(
I love it!!!!!
This is wonderful! And now I can’t wait till summer. Only six more months to go…
Nice crisp, clean theme. Great work indeed. ;)
Awesome, keep em’ comin! ;D
I’ve got a little spring on my blog today, now you have me dreaming of beaches.
Seriously… this is the worst theme EVER :-( Too much old 90s influences… it seems that WordPress themes are going backwards. This is almost blogspot. :-((((
Reminds me of the beach.
Wow this is pretty! Thanks so much. :)
Very good, man!
I want to go swimming with my computer. :-)
I’m in Buffalo, New York! Any thing resembeling a beach is needed right about now!!!
Nice, but not my style. Keep up the good work, though. ;)
What a perfect theme to announce on a perfectly miserable icy/snowy day!
Yes, most excellent (very cold where I’m at, at the moment!). :D
This is neat and refreshing… I love the header, and the idea of “the menu on the sand” is brilliant. Thanks theme team. :)
A very fresh, clean theme. This might prove a suitable replacement for my current Freshy theme.
Terrific work! Kudos to the designer.
This is a nice, fun theme! Maybe some more themes likes this would be great. I’d switch to this now, but I like to hold on to winter as long as I can.
If only that’s what it really looked like outside. :)
Yep, I can’t wait till summer.
Hi! I am Carl from Sweden! I like “Beach” very much. Very nice. I love it!
Have a nice day, and keep up the good work.
Wow! This is a beautiful theme, different with modern design. I like. Here, it is now summer, with a hot sun and amazing, I see this theme an very refreshing, ad hoc with the beaches here in Rio. Congratulations and good job Ian.
This is very good this time of the year. Definitely time for vacation.
Not bad if you like color. Definitely beachy.
Very nice theme, I like it very much. Thank you.
We are here to inspire and if you’ve been able touch just one person with your theme in that way than you have succeeded today.
Very cool to the eyes. I love this. But it’s too trendy, I must say.
Love the beach concept…yet a digital beach is not going to cut it with most beach lovers and/or world travelers. I mean absolutely, no disrespect, yet photographic imagery would be a necessary component in these displays. Cheers & much success to all.
Thanks Ian! This is love. :)
Cute, but not too cute.
It’s a beautiful theme. Thank you.
Nice, but I’ll stick to my current theme :)
A silent beach…where is the life…?
Cool and fresh. ;)
You make me wanna go to the beach! LOL
I don’t think I’d have any use for this theme, but it looks very nice! Definitely one of my favourites.
I like this theme a lot! Can I suggest some tweaks? Like, the orange title header, can we make it in the shade of blue or green or even yellow? And then, can we add a turtle or two in the footer image?
I really really like it. It lightened up my morning.
A good theme, I love the beach.
Nice theme! Even for those of us who live on the beach…I like my current theme (Under the Influence) that allows me to post my own beach photos as my header…great work guys!
Here comes the sun… love it. :-)
This is nice, I like very much!
Clean and warm! Now writing is actually diving…
Nice theme… I think you have to come to Bali and make another beach theme. :)
Great theme. I wish it had custom background option…
It’s great theme! :) I love this one!
Great! It’s very awesome. :)
Very cool! We’ll try it!
I like it…I will try it for summer. ;)
At a glance, it’s wonderful. Yeah, it really is. :)
Crisp and neat. Love it!
Well, I do love summer—of course! But this one looks a bit cheesy. Sorry :-)
So it’s really nice!
It is -15°C outside here… snow covered and crunchy when you walk…. the beach looks great! Almost makes me want a second blog so I can just spend time there.
Thanks for sharing this…
That’s the theme I’ve just adopted for my own insignificant little blob of a blog. I’m no fan of winter as you’ll see from my blog. We’ve just emerged from a miserable month of snow and ice. Spring and summer are my seasons and it should show.
I love the layout of this theme, nice and simple (I am so a ‘box’ person). It would be even better if it allowed a little bit more flexibility in allowing us to individualise it i.e. header and background options but then I suppose it would be taking away all the beachy things… :-)
I’d like a Tron theme. The closest I get was my theme + a custom header.
Lovely, keep ‘em coming!
Looks nice and fresh.
Hey I had that activated but I decided to change it. I’ll put that on when it’s really summer where I live and then I can think about the beach all the time.
This theme is okay but it doesn’t make me feel warm or like I’m at the beach.
Very creative. :)
Very nice and fresh.
Looks okay. Nice one. :)
