Spending a day at the beach is one of the most fun ways to enjoy a vacation. The simple joys of swimming, playing in the sand, and paddle boarding can make for a memorable day with family and friends.
During a recent beach trip, we got to try out some innovative products that make beach days safer and less stressful!
I know for me, I’m always concerned about things getting stolen from our bags as my family enjoys the ocean. That’s why I was so excited to try the Flex Safe from AquaVault.
This is the ultimate portable travel safe, and is perfect for tor traveling. It attaches to a stroller, sun chair, bicycle, or whatever surface you prefer. Use a personal code with a programmable lock, and with the internal zipper there is no side access, so your valuables are safe! It was a huge weight off my shoulders to know our keys, money, and phones were secure while we had fun at the beach!
Another common beach-day problem is keeping your phone protected from water and sand, especially when you want to take photos!
The AquaVault waterproof phone case lets you use your phone, including taking photos and videos while in the water, without damage! The patented floating airbag is fully waterproof, so your phone is protected while you capture every moment. I tested it in a pool and in the ocean and it works wonders. You can take it on a boat, while paddle boarding, or even to a water park!
It has a likable roller zipper with double velcro locking system, which also makes me recommend this for skiing. No snow would get inside, and a perfect place to keep phone /small valuables while playing in the snow or heading down the slopes.
My kids’ favorite gadget was their collapsible sand bucket, which is a genius idea. The bucket collapses to just 2 inches tall, perfect for packing and storage. Throw it in your suitcase for a beach vacation and you’ll kids will be happy all day. No one likes lugging sand toys to and from the car or hotel, so this bucket really was a lifesaver. It’s easy to see why it won the Creative Child Magazine Toy of the Year in 2015.
We can’t wait to enjoy more days at the beach with these products. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
Thanks to Aqua Vault for providing these products; but as always, all thoughts that are expressed in this article are fully my own.
