Must Have Items:
- Mesh Whale Bag
One of the biggest challenges with heading to the beach is transporting all of the items you need from your car to the sand. This is the perfect beach bag to keep packed and ready to go. The waterproof base keeps your items protected, while the mesh sides make it easy for you to find what you are looking for. It’s large enough to hold everything you need, including: 6 beach towels, drinks and snacks, sand toys, and sunscreen. There are plenty of pockets to keep your items separated. When you get home you can simply rinse out the bag and hang it up to dry and wait for your next beach adventure.
- Tillow’s Pillow Towel
The Tillow is a game changer for beach days. Don’t you hate trying to get comfortable on the sand while you sunbathe on the beach? The Tillow is a pillow and beach towel combined. It has a slot for an orthopedic foam pillow to take your relaxing beach time to a new level. It also has a touchscreen pocket to make using your smart phone easy while also protecting it. On top of that, it features a waterproof hidden compartment where you can keep things like your keys and some cash without anyone knowing it’s there.
- Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen SPF 30
You know sunscreen is an important essential for your beach day, but Colorescience makes applying the sunscreen easier than ever before. The mineral based sunscreen is great for those that have sensitive skin and helps protect your skin from wrinkling and skin cancer. Just because you are wearing sunscreen doesn’t mean you have to smell like you are wearing it. With Sunforgettable you no longer have to worry about a thick and smelly lotion. The convenient size is small enough to easily toss into any bag without fear of lotion leaking onto your other items.
- Zara’s Rigid Brim Summer Hat
You need a great hat to help keep the sun out of your eyes and your skin protected when at the beach. This three-tone hat is perfect for your next beach day or a walk along the boardwalk, and you can’t beat the price at only $5.99. The ridged brim of the hat allows you to keep your full field of vision to take in the beautiful scenery or keep an eye on your little ones. In addition, you can also find things such as a static hair brush by visiting the site and by doing your research.

Sunglasses are a must have when you hit the beach. These hip browline shades will let you combine being practical with your sense of style. They have a contrast glossy frame and dual metal-tipped accents for a high profile look, but come at a price that won’t make you cry if they get scratched, cracked, or lost..

When you are at the beach and want to run to the snack bar or just simply cover up for a while, you don’t want to go through the hassle of putting all your clothes back on.
