Ready to head to the beach? Beautiful blue waters and white sandy beaches are calling you! But before you gas up the car, you’ll need to pack a bag. Let’s face it – what you put in your beach bag can determine how much fun you actually have. How many times have you made a beach trip only to discover you forgot the sunscreen? That’s a bummer! Review these tips for packing a beach bag and be prepared for the sun and sand!
The Right Bag
Beach bags come in every shape, color and size you can think of, don’t they? However, don’t pick a bag just because someone else has one. We think the best beach bag has multiple compartments for optimum organization, is water-resistant, and if possible, it should complement your outfit. Whichever bag you choose, make sure it’s one that you can easily get sand out of.
The Must Haves
Okay, now here are the must haves. You might think this list is a bit short, but feel free to add to it.
- Beach towels
- A good read
- Sunblock for lips
Now for the extras that might make your trip more enjoyable.
- Baby powder: Sprinkle your feet with powder, then brush it off before stepping into the car. This handy product will remove the sand.
- Goggles and/or nose plugs: If you decide to go for a dip, be prepared!
- Zippered storage bags: Put a few in your beach bag. They come in handy when you want to take a few shells home or stash something unexpectedly, like a leftover snack.
- Cooling eye gel: Ahh . . . how did we ever live without this summertime eye treat? It gets hot around the beach and the eyes generally feel it first. Keep them comfortable with cooling gel made specifically for your eyes.
