10 Things to Include in Your Beach Bag

We have all been in the same position – finally gotten to the beach, so glad to sink your toes in the sand, and as soon as you start relaxing, you realize that you left the snacks on the breakfast bar in the kitchen. Not only that, but you are traveling with kids who need snacks for entertainment and energy to help get them through the day. We are here to provide a list of 10 things to include in your beach bag, so you never have that “uh-oh” moment interrupt your vacation again! Continue reading for a list of items that locals and visitors alike follow to ensure their day in the sand is nothing but memorable.

10 Things to Include in Your Beach Bag

  1. Sunscreen – Have multiple levels of SPF. Other specific sunscreens that are often forgotten include face sunscreen and Chapstick with SPF!
  2. Snacks/Beverages – Having a separate cooler with these items is the best way to go. This makes sure they stay cool all day.
  3. Beach Coverups for Everyone – Most kids don’t enjoy reapplying sunscreen throughout the day so having a beach coverup that will protect them from the sun will come in handy.
  4. Sand Toys – Keep the young kids occupied! They will play with sand toys for hours.
  5. A plastic cover for electronics, wallet, keys, etc. – Protect your electronics and valuables by keeping them in a plastic/waterproof bag.
  6. Towels for everyone – Having something to dry off is key! Make sure every member of your family has at least one towel.
  7. First Aid Items – Band-Aids and Neosporin are two items that will go a long way at the beach. Things happen! Best to be prepared for anything.
  8. A Football/Frisbee – The adults and teenagers of the group will love throwing the frisbee or football around.
  9. Hats and Sunglasses – Two items that will make or break your beach day but typically aren’t at the top of a packing list.
  10. Find the Right Bag! – You want a beach bag that will filter some of the sand out of the bag, so you don’t take a ton of it with you. Straw bags are best.

These 10 things to include in your beach bag will make for the best day ever!
