If you are planning on driving out to the beach on a sunny weekend or are even taking a beach vacation then it is important to be prepared when you venture out. No one wants their fun beach day ruined by being cold, wet or sunburned. Packing a few extra things can help you be prepared in case of any mishaps. The most important thing to remember is to bring your sunscreen.
People have a tendency to forget this item but it is the easiest way to prevent a painful sun burn and also protect your skin from damaging UV rays. In addition to the sunscreen you can also benefit from a canopy top that will keep you in the shade for comfort and protection. You can bring a small umbrella or a large canopy for your whole family. Other protection from the sun that can be helpful is a large hat, sunglasses, lip balm with sunscreen, and lightweight clothing.
For your comfort, getting dry and the least amount of sand as possible you will need a big blanket and some towels. Chairs can also be a good idea if you want some support for your back while lounging on the sand. Make sure to secure your blankets and towels by putting some heavy items on the corners so they don’t blow away.
You might also get a canopy weight to keep your umbrellas and shade items in place on a windy day. Lastly, you can pack extra items for fun like swimsuits, surfboards, boogies boards or beach toys for the kids. It might seem like a lot of preparation but you will be grateful once you get to the beach and you have everything you need to stay the whole day and enjoy yourself in the water.
