10 Things That You Must Have In Your Beach Bag

Summer is a season that everyone looks forward to, and the earlier it comes, the better. Though what can be more enjoyable than strolling along miles of golden sand? It’s like a call for all of us to be with nature. To relax, chill and enjoy the most we can from this season. Since beaches are one of the best places to cool down and spend time with your friends and family, you need to carry certain items in your beach bag.

Sitting back is lulled by the sound of waves while resting your feet in the water, enjoying an ice-cold drink. However, you’d also need some time out with yourself, which means getting all your essentials together for your trip to the beach.

Here is our list of 10 things that you must have in your beach bag:

1) Sunscreen

One of the essential things you’d need to pack in your beach bag is sunscreen lotion or cream, depending on how much time you want to spend under the. It’s best if you pack it with a high SPF so that you won’t have to think about reapplying now and then. Ensure that the sunscreen lotion or cream is waterproof and sweat-proof for those hours spent playing in the water with friends. A good Sunscreen will not only protect your skin from harmful UV rays but also prevent tanning, drying of the skin, and premature aging.

2) Sarong

You’d need a sarong if you prefer hanging out on a beach chair or under a shaded area. It not only looks stylish but would keep you cool too, especially during those hot summer afternoons. The cotton ones are best suited for all weathers and can easily be tied up to carry them with you.

3) Towel

 You’d need microfibre beach towels to sit on while lying down, for your head, or even to shield yourself from the scorching sun. It’s best if you get one with a waterproof backing to stay dry even when wet. Ensure that it is of good quality and soft since your skin will be touching it throughout your beach day out.

4) Swim Suit

It is something that most of us tend to forget but trust me, and every woman needs at least two swimsuits packed in her bag; one for swimming and the other one she could wear later after drying off, especially if there are no changing rooms nearby. Bring at least two matching bikinis, even if you are going with friends. This way, one of them can swim in hers while the other gets ready to dry off, saving time and energy.

5) Sun Hat

Sun hats or visors shield your face from the harsh sun and make for an attractive accessory, especially when paired with a sundress. It’s best if they are made up of straw because they tend to be lightweight, comfortable, and easier to clean than usual ones.

6) Sunglasses

 It protects your eyes from harmful UV rays and gives you that trendy look, making sure no one misses out upon your presence. Sunglasses or other eye protection would be needed to spend time in the water; it prevents your eyes from drying out and protects them against harmful rays. If you’d like to bring a sun hat, make sure that they match and also don’t forget the sunglasses case because you wouldn’t like to carry all these things in your hands when at the beach. The best way is to tie up all of them together with a ribbon or put them in a Ziploc bag so that everything stays dry and protected.

7) Lip Balm

everyone most prefers lip balm to keep lips hydrated and smooth. It is something that you will need after you have stuffed yourself with all those ice creams and popsicles, which are bound to leave your lips dry. Most sunscreen lotions would contain lip balm but make sure you get one, especially for soft lips.

8) Beach Bag

Not everyone has the luxury of owning a beach bag, but if you do, bring it with you to store your valuables in them while going for a swim or just taking a walk on the sand. They are not only sturdy but also stylish, keeping all your precious things safe and dry.

9) Water Bottle

Whether you spend most of your time at the ocean or lounging by the poolside, make sure to carry a water bottle with you because no one likes to get dehydrated during summer.  It’s essential to stay hydrated, especially during summer, so make sure you have a water bottle or a thermos with you. This way, it would be easier for you to reach out for a sip all through the day.

10) Snacks/Food

Besides sunscreen lotion and sarongs, bringing snacks or sandwiches with yourself would save time and energy and enjoy your day to the fullest.  Since you might not be able to pack your entire lunch or dinner, make sure to carry some snacks and other food items like fruits with yourself for the day. This way, you would never run out of energy throughout your beach day.
