When going to the beach, you will need a lot of things! You want something to lay or sit on, you want to have fun and you want to relax. For all those activities you will need some items! Many people always forget to bring important stuff, so we will offer you a great list of beach bag essentials!
The Beach Bag
First of all, you need the right kind of bag to put your essentials into. It is unimportant whether you use a pouch, a backpack or a tote bag. This only depends on the duration of your stay and on how many things you need. What you need to consider is that the bag should be water resistant and large! Never use your favorite bag as you will likely get seawater and sand in your space!
Make sure to bring plenty of insect and sun protection! Moreover, lip balm, lotion, leave-in conditioner, a hair protector and sunglasses will be very useful. Sunscreen should be applied thirty minutes before you are going into the sun and needs to be reapplied every two hours. When it comes to the sunglasses, choose bigger or wider ones as they provide better eye protection. Don’t use your expensive glasses because there is the danger or getting crashed, sandy or washed away!
Bring snacks and water
Your body needs much more water when you are lying out in the hot sun! This is why you should pack enough water. A great idea for a cold drink is to fill the bottle half ways with water and freeze it overnight. Before drinking you need to pour water into the bottle and afterwards you will enjoy your cold drink. When bringing snacks, you may need a cooler. Otherwise you can hope that there are restaurants along the beach!
Lots of Entertainment
Next to sunbathing and swimming you may want to have some action. Therefore, you will need to bring footballs, bocce balls, Frisbees or any other game activity with you. Yet, you need to respect your neighbors at the beach, but who knows! Maybe they want to joy your game and you will finds loads of new friends! Sometimes you do not need to bring everything yourself. Many people bring their volleyball and if you know that this happens on your particular beach all the time, you do not need to take your ball with you. Just join the game that is already on and have some fun.
What’s a better way to relax than sunbathing? Nothing. Well, you do not want to lie right on the sand, right? This is why you should bring a beach chair or a huge towel. If you are not the kind of person, that is able just to lie and do nothing, you may bring a radio and listen to some great music. Another thing is to bring your favorite book or magazine and read it while getting a little bit browner.
You see, there is a lot of stuff to bring to the beach. Hopefully, you won’t forget anything with the help of our short list!
