Heading to the beach is one of the best ways to spend a family vacation. Too bad you have to pack before you can go! Fret not as we have you sorted with the list of essential items that you need to take away to your next beach vacation. From a swimsuit to sunscreen, everything is listed for your comfort. All you need to is make a trip to your favourite shopping destination and shop away.

 

Beach Bag

A spacious beach bag is an obvious pick for a beach vacay! A carry on bag is perfect to dump all your important beach essentials. A jute one will be a great choice as it natural and environment-friendly and it won't let the sand stay inside and ruin your towels and other things in the bag.

Waterproof Speaker 

Everyone loves to listen to some soothing music on the beach. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker would help you tune into your favourite music mingling with the lovely sound of crashing waves at the shore.

Beach Reads

Are you an avid reader who loves carrying books around with them everywhere they go? Then you need a good beach read that is easy enough to take frequent breaks, but at the same time, it should be brain-gripping enough to provide a steady opportunity to escape from reality.

A Pair Of Flip Flops

Taking a long stride alongside the shore on warm sand sounds like a cool idea, up until you start feeling the ickiness and grittiness of the sand particles and your feet begin to burn. To avoid that pack a pair of flip flops and rescue your feet from all the nitty gritties on the beach.

Sunscreen 

This one is a no-brainer for a beach outing. You have to have a sunscreen in your bag to keep those sunburns at bay while you chill with the cocktails in your hand lying down on the beach to relax. Direct sun exposure can cause other skin issues like inflammation, irritation and in worst case scenarios, skin cancer. So, lather that SPF and enjoy!how-to-pack-for-a-beach-day-sunscreen

A Lip Balm With SPF

We tend to forget or rather neglect our lips which, is a big bummer! Many people do not realize the fact that skin on our lips is way thinner and sensitive in comparison to the skin on the rest of our face and needs extra protection. For that, you need a layer of SPF protection for your lips. Invest in a good lip balm with SPF properties that will keep your lips hydrated and protected at the same time.

A Cover Up For Your Bikini/Swimsuit

Do not forget to pack a cover-up or a kimono to layer on top of your bikini or swimsuit. It is going to give you a layer of coverage if you're not too comfortable in chilling around in a bikini outside the water. It will also add a fashion statement and keep you snug and warm once you step out from a swim in the sparkling sea.
