When the sun is shining and the temperatures rise, many families head to the beach. They go to enjoy a day of building sand castles, swimming and splashing in the water, flying a kite or throwing a Frisbee. What’s not to like, right? Well, if you don’t plan accordingly, a day at the beach can turn into a nightmare. When visiting your favorite beach destination, you need to be prepared for a successful outing. Here are eight things to pack for a day at the beach.
Since skin cancer is on the rise, we know to come home with seashells, not sunburns! Kids’ skin is delicate and should be protected regardless of complexion. I had to have skin cancer removed from my face, so I learned the hard way that sunscreen should be priority #1! Don’t forget lip balm with SPF as well.
First aid kit
Besides sunscreen, it’s good to be prepared for other small ailments and injuries. You should always keep a kit in your car and take a small one for when you travel. Keep in mind that most first aid kits will need to be in checked baggage if they contain sharp items like scissors.
Most beaches have bugs. Protect yourself and your kids from biting flies. sand fleas, mosquitos, and ticks. Some products combine bug repellent and sunscreen in one.
Bring more than you think you’ll need. We like to have a small towel just for drying off and not laying in the sand. A quick dry towel works well.
You can never have too many snacks at the beach. Kids run around a ton so they work up an appetite. Bite size snacks in ziplock bags work well. If you decide to pack sandwiches, cut them into quarters. This way if one piece falls, there is still plenty left.
Save money and keep the kids away from sugary snack bar drinks by bringing your own water bottles. Fill with mostly ice so as it melts, the water stays colder longer.
Daypack or beach bag
You’ll need something to carry it all. Lightweight daypacks work well. We like to have at least one with a built-in cooler section to keep fruit fresh and drinks cold.
When you go to the beach for a vacation, I believe you don’t want to wear formal suit, you must wear casual clothing like T-shirt and shorts, so you must take the beach flip flop which protect your feet for harm and keep your comfit.
