With summer just around the corner, plenty of people will resume taking regular trips to the beach, which is almost always a fun idea, unless it’s raining, you never got around to losing the winter weight, or you forgot to take something you needed along with you. If you are planning to go to the beach soon, here are a few essentials that you need to take along with you.
10. Flip Flops
Having the right footwear is important when going to the beach, because sand get into everything. There is no point ruining a perfectly good pair of shoes when at the beach, and it also isn’t fun getting sand out of a pair of tennis shoes. Flip Flops are great because you can wear them in the water, and they are very easy to clean.
9. Reading Material
Having something to read is a great way to pass time at the beach, these days, most people use mobile devices to read their books, but they can easily be ruined at the beach by water or sand, which is why it is better to have a paperback or magazine with you, because they aren’t as expensive and you won’t be too upset if they get ruined.
A camera is an essential thin to have on the beach, because it allows you to capture great moments with family and friends, and anything interesting that happens while you’re at the beach.
Some beaches have vendor stands where you can get a bite to eat, and others don’t, so it is important that you take some snacks with you, just in case there aren’t any vendors there, in some cases, the vendors might be overcharging, so it makes more sense to bring your own snacks from home.
One of the most important thing to have while on the beach is a Frisbee, because it is a great way to keep busy and have a little fun with friends or even strangers.
Sunglasses are essential when going to the beach, because they shield your eyes from the sun glare coming from the water. They are also important because they allow you to “enjoy” the view, without being conspicuous or getting caught by your significant other.
4. Beach Blanket
If you plan on laying down and catching some rays while relaxing on the beach, a beach towel is very important. It allows you to relax without having to lay on the hot sand, which will also bet into your bathing suit.
3. A Hat
Having a hat while on the beach is great because it helps to shield your face from the sun.
2. A Medical Kit
This is mostly for people who are going to the beach with kids, because kids are prone to have minor accidents that results in a few scrapes. Having a first aid kit handy allows you to treat their wounds without having to leave the beach.
1. Sun Screen
A high SPF sunscreen is your best friend when going to the beach, it helps to protect your skin from sun burns, and also reduce your chances of getting skin cancer.
