Currently, signs for promoting recreational marine activities have not been proposed. In this study, we proposed an action-prompting sign using a pictogram of beach volleyball, and we conducted a survey with the objective of determining the effectiveness of the sign in prompting action, as well as its problems. According to the results of a questionnaire concerning the action-prompting sign used in the study, we found that a sign representing beach volleyball has a prompting effect and that the sign is suitable for use near water.
