Beach Essentials

Now that you've picked the perfect beach's all about packing the essentials for a fun day on the sand!


The secret to packing your beach bag is to pack as few things as possible, to make your bag easy to carry, but to pack everything you may need so you don't have to interrupt your beach day by going back to the house.

I have super fair skin, as I'm sure I've mentioned about a hundred times before, so sunscreen is a must.  Even if you're tan, or trying to get a tan, use sunscreen!!  The sun's rays can change depending on location, so if you're used to the sun at home, the rays at the beach may be much more powerful causing you a painful sunburn!  Also, remember to use a lipbalm with SPF.  Sunburn lips are the worst.

Don't forget a waterbottle to stay hydrated, and some snacks to avoid becoming hangry!

Some sunglasses (don't forget your croakies!) or a baseball cap to keep the sun out of your eyes.

And lastly, don't forget to relax and breathe, because a beach vacation is the perfect time to decompress from your job or just the stress of "real life!"

What are your beach bag must haves?


  1. love this, i am going to the beach tomorrow and every beach post i see gets me even more excited for it!

  2. I always over-pack my pool/beach bag - I'm the girl who is literally lugging her pool bag behind her down the steps to the pool :P - really I should learn that I just need the essentials but somehow I can never narrow it down!
