Beach Essentials for a Perfect Summer day

What’s a better way to spend a perfect summer day than at the beach. Bask in the sun, get a tan, enjoy the waves or just sit back and relax. This list of Beach Essentials to enjoy a Perfect Summer day will make sure you don’t leave anything important behind.

There’s nothing worse than arriving at the beach and realizing all the things that you could have brought. But don’t sweat, don’t stress, we’ve got you all covered!
Here’s a list of all the possible essentials that you will need to enjoy a perfect Summer day at the Beach!


Skincare/ body care essentials

Sunglasses, sunscreen (preferably spf 30), lip balm with spf, a sun hat or baseball cap and a bikini or your choice of a swimsuit. A light weight beach dress or some clothes to wear over your swimsuit. Active swimwear or a rash guard if you plan on hitting the waves, this will protect you from UV rays.
Some after sun leave in hair conditioner will be great to repair your hair and body lotion to moisturize your skin after you’ve taken a shower. A pack of biodegradable Cleansing wipes, to help you get off that sticky feeling in your skin from the sand, sea and sweat.
Don’t forget to pack a pair of sandals or flip flops/ slippers and an inflatable float to have fun in the sea.



take plenty of water, drinks or sodas of your choice in a cooler to beat the heat. You can also pack some food and snacks in a cool bag to keep them cool and fresh in case you get hungry.



your phone to take pictures, tablet/ kindle/ ipad or books if you wish to read. A waterproof pouch for your phone is very important in my opinion. A Bluetooth speaker if you plan to listen to music or hang out with friends. You could also bring along some earbuds/ air pods or headphones if you want to just tune out and have some alone time. A go pro to capture lasting memories, if you decide to go snorkeling, diving, swimming or surfing.


For Comfort

microfiber/ quick dry beach towel, water shoes. A tote bag or beach bag to carry all your things. A beach umbrella and an oversized beach blanket to keep off the sand. Also take along comfortable beach chairs that are portable and easy to carry.


Hope this list helped because we all know that a little planning can go a long way. I hope you have the perfect Summer day at the beach!
