What can turn a perfect beach day into #worstdayever? Not packing appropriately.
Here, our top ten list of beach bag packing essentials.
They’re a must to protect your eyes and face from the sun.
2. Wide-rimmed hat
Opt for the biggest, cutest, floppiest one you can find to block the sun. Get sun visors for the kids.
3. Sunscreen and lip protection
4. Beach chair
Choose one that’s waterproof, feels supportive, and travels easily. Look for one with its own adjustable overhead umbrella.
5. Beach umbrella
Can’t find a chair with a built-in umbrella? Go for a beach umbrella with 50+ ultraviolet protection factor (UPF).
6. Beach towels
Choose a fun, distinct pattern–so you don’t get yours mixed up with someone else’s!
7. Food Storage Containers
Opt for space-saving, collapsible models that take up less room in your bag.
8. Water shoes
Protect your feet from hot sand and sharp rocks. While you’re at it, pack an extra set of clothes to change into on the way home.
9. First Aid Kit
Cut and scrapes happen–be prepared.
10. Wireless headphones
Listen to your playlist or audiobook without being connected to your phone.
