My 5 Must Haves for A Fun Day at the Beach

My 5 Must Haves for A Fun Day at the Beach

I live on the Gulf Coast of Florida, so we have plenty of beach days. Going to the beach can be a fun and relaxing way to spend a day. However, packing for a day at the beach can be overwhelming, especially if you’re not sure what to bring. Here are my five must-have items for a day at the beach:

  1. Sunscreen: Sunscreen is the most important item you should bring to the beach. The sun’s harmful rays can cause skin damage, sunburn, and even skin cancer. Make sure to choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Apply sunscreen liberally and frequently throughout the day, especially after swimming or sweating.

  2. Towel: A towel is essential for drying off after a swim or laying out in the sun. Opt for a lightweight, quick-drying towel that won’t take up too much space in your beach bag. Consider bringing an extra towel to use as a makeshift blanket or to sit on.

  3. Water and Snacks: It’s easy to get dehydrated when you’re out in the sun all day, so bring plenty of water to stay hydrated. Consider bringing a reusable water bottle that you can refill throughout the day. Don’t forget to pack some healthy snacks to keep you energized, like fruit, trail mix, or granola bars.

  4. Hat and Sunglasses: Protect your eyes and face from the sun’s harmful rays by bringing a hat and sunglasses. A wide-brimmed hat will provide shade for your face and neck, while sunglasses will protect your eyes from UV rays.

  5. Swimsuit and Cover-Up: Of course, you’ll need a swimsuit for a day at the beach. Opt for a comfortable and flattering swimsuit that you feel confident in. (I recommend checking out our Lemonkinis.) Consider bringing a cover-up or sarong to wear when you’re not in the water, to protect your skin from the sun and to provide some coverage.

These five must-have items will ensure that you have a fun, safe, and comfortable day at the beach. Don’t forget to pack sunscreen, a towel, water and snacks, a hat and sunglasses, and a Lemonkini bikini and cover-up. With these essentials in your beach bag, you’re ready for a day of sun, sand, and relaxation.
