Heading to the beach for a day of sun, sand, and relaxation? Make sure you pack your beach bag with these essential items to ensure a fun beach experience!
Beach Tote Organizer: Keep your beach tote organized
Use a ToteSavvy Mini Bag Organizer to keep your Beach Tote organized. You don't want to be searching in an endless pit while on the beach. Utilizing an organizer like the Mini helps keep your essentials where you need them and still allows for a few other larger essentials to fit in your bag.
Sunscreen: Protect your skin from harmful UV rays
One of the most important items to pack in your beach bag is sunscreen. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF to protect your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays. Apply it generously and reapply every two hours for maximum protection.
Beach Towel: Lounge in comfort
A soft and absorbent beach towel is a must-have for lounging on the sand. Look for a large towel that is quick-drying and sand-resistant for ultimate comfort. You can also use it as a makeshift beach blanket for picnics or as a cover-up.
Water Bottle: Stay hydrated under the sun
Spending time in the sun can be dehydrating, so don't forget to pack a water bottle. Opt for a reusable bottle that keeps your drink cold for hours. Staying hydrated is essential for a day of fun in the sun. If you use a straw cup, grab some cute straw covers to keep the sand out of your cup!
Hat and Sunglasses: Shield yourself from the sun
Protect your face and eyes from the sun's rays by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses. Not only do they add a stylish touch to your beach attire, but they also provide much-needed shade and reduce the risk of sunburn and eye damage.
Neck Fan: Keep yourself cool in the heat
If you find yourself getting a little too hot on the beach, a neck fan is an essential to staying cool. Simply put it around your neck and enjoy an on-the-go breeze that will surely cool you off so you can enjoy your time at the beach a little longer. (I was pregnant at the beach this year, and this was life-changing!!)
Snacks: Fuel up for a day of fun
Pack some healthy snacks to keep your energy levels up throughout the day. Fresh fruits in a cooler (there's nothing better than watermelon on the beach!), granola bars, veggie straws, and nuts are great options that are easy to pack and provide a quick boost of energy.
Extra Clothes: Be prepared for any occasion
It's always a good idea to pack an extra set of clothes or a cover up in case you decide to grab a bite to eat or explore the nearby attractions after your beach day. Pack a lightweight and comfortable outfit that is easy to slip on and off. I personally love to add a lightweight, flowy dress--it's easy to throw on and super cute! Be sure to add in a Wet Bag to your beach bag so you can throw your wet clothes into it without getting any of your other essentials wet!
First Aid Kit: Be prepared for minor injuries
Accidents can happen, even at the beach. It's a good idea to have a small first aid kit in your beach bag to treat minor cuts, scrapes, or insect bites. Include items like band-aids, antiseptic wipes, and pain relievers to handle any unexpected situations. Also, throw in items like a small pack of tissues, hand sanitizer, and hair scrunchies--must-haves for sure at the beach!
