When heading for a trip to the beach or lounging by the pool, you have to come prepared for what the day may bring. You already have the photo-worthy bikini, but what else could you possibly need to prepare for your beach outing? Some general questions to consider before leaving for your coastal moment: how long do I plan to be out? What is the weather going to be like? Will there be a place to recharge or rehydrate? Are there lounge chairs or open space available? This will let you know what your beach bag essentials should be for a relaxing day by the ocean.
How long you plan to be out will determine how big your beach bag should be, whether you need to pack a change of clothes or are planning to do some reading. But one non-negotiable item that should be in every beach bag is sunscreen. We all want that golden bronze complexion, but not at the expense of burning. It’s also essential that you stay hydrated. If you arent going to be somewhere water is going to be accessible, it’s a good idea to bring a water bottle. Another handy item to have is an oversized beach towel that you can use for either drying off after a dip in the water or creating a barrier between you and a sandy bum.
