Beach days are the best days! Playing in the sand and surf screams “summer” and the sun and salty air are medicine for the soul. One of the most important factors for a guaranteed enjoyable beach day is proper preparation. Check out our checklist below to make sure you have everything you need for the best beach day ever.
Beach Day Checklist:
- Beach Tent – A pop-up beach cabana provides all-day shade from the sun and offers wind protection, too. Take a look at this family-sized beach tent, this one with UV protection, or this sun shade canopy.
- Beach Blanket – Perfect for picnicking in the sand or playing a game, a beach blanket is a must have. We like this beach blanket with a carrying tote, this tassel blanket, and this pop-up tropical blanket.
- Beach Chair – Whether you’re reading, tanning, or sitting by the water’s edge, a beach chair is useful for many reasons. This lounger is great for tanning or laying on your tummy, this chair has a canopy which is perfect for reading a good book with no glare, and this low profile chair is awesome for relaxing with your toes in the water.
- Beach Umbrella – This 6.5ft beach umbrella with a tilt function and added UV protection will keep you safe from the sun all day long, and the sand anchor will ensure your umbrella doesn’t fall over or blow away in the breeze.
- Beach Towel – These “Big One” beach towels are oversized for extra room to lay out and nap, and the quick dry feature won’t leave your towel soaking wet for hours after a dip in the ocean.
- Beach Cooler – Keep your beverages and perishable snacks chilled all day long with a top-of-the-line beach cooler. This cooler bag makes for easy travel, this backpack cooler is great when you have your hands full, and this rolling cooler means no hauling a heavy bag across miles of sidewalk.
- Beach Toys – Keep the kids (and yourself!) entertained for hours with beach toys. These sand toys are fun for the young ones, this paddle game offers a few different options for entertainment, and this portable cornhole game will have everyone wanting to play.
- Waterproof Speaker – Put on your favorite playlist, get lost in an audiobook, or listen to a new podcast with this wireless waterproof speaker.
- Beach Bag – Keep all your essentials in one place with a beach tote. This cotton tote is bringing all the right vibes, this mesh tote doubles as a cooler, this water resistant tote will keep everything dry, and this Bogg bag is award-winning for a reason.
