Beach Day Essentials

One of the best things about summer? Beach days, of course! Make the most of your time at the beach by bringing all the essentials.

Stake your claim on the beach with a large umbrella to provide some shade.

Here’s a great option from Target.

Make a statement with a bold towel – you’ll be glad you did when you can easily spot it from the water amongst the crowd of other towels on the beach.

We love these fun options from Target: here, here and here.

Protection from sunburn is not the only reason for lathering up with sunscreen. Prevent skin damage, skin cancer, dark spots and premature aging with a high SPF sunscreen.

Check out this SPF 50 sunscreen here and this SPF 30 sunscreen here.

Water & Snacks
Don’t forget to hydrate! We suggest bringing a cooler and some refillable water bottles.

We love S’well brand bottles for keeping your water cold for hours. And you can’t go wrong with bringing some snacks to keep your appetite at bay while you soak up the rays. We suggest some yummy watermelon, strawberries or nuts! You could even make a picnic out of it!

Reading Material
While you’re laying out and working on your tan, it could also the perfect time to catch up on your summer reading. We’ve heard good things about the books below, and most are available as Kindle and eBooks as well.

Ladies may like: The Vacationers, The Rules Do Not Apply, One More Thing and Attachments
Men may like: Crooked, Modern Romance and Your Band Sucks

Keep the sun off your face in style.

Options for ladies: here, here and here.

Swimsuit Cover up
If you don’t want to show too much skin before you arrive at the beach, bring along a stylish swimsuit cover-up like these options.

Don’t forget your sand castle-making materials, Frisbees, beach volleyballs and other activities to keep everyone entertained.

Tote Bag
A tote bag is a must to hold all of your beach essentials.

We love these options: here, here and here.
