Items to Pack for a Beach Vacation
Pack the fun! If you’re traveling with kids, you’ll need items to keep them entertained at the beach. Think of sports items, like footballs, frisbees, and maybe some boogie boards. You can’t visit the beach without making a sandcastle, right? If this is one of many intended beach trips, consider making it a competition between families or kids, and see who can build the ultimate sandcastle before the vacation is complete.
Important must-haves Swimsuits – at least 2 per person – are required beach attire, and don’t forget some comfy slip on sandals too. Sunscreen and aloe vera are also a big must. There’s nothing worse than a bad sunburn to hault your vacation fun. Our favorite brand for the kids is Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection in lotion and face stick options. Formulated with naturally sourced 100% Zinc Oxide and Active Naturals® Oat, it combines superior broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection with skin soothing benefits. Consider a hat or visor to protect your face from too much sun exposure as well.
Safety Unfortunately in today’s society we have to be proactive about protecting our important items, like keys, smartphones, and more. Consider the FlexSafe by AquaVault – the same brand that was featured on Shark Tank! Their anti-theft portable safe is perfect for the beach, pool or cruising too. Don’t miss the memories! Smartphones are a great way to capture precious memories while vacationing. If your phone isn’t waterproof AquaVault has another solution – a waterproof floating phone case. Easily record videos, take photos, check messages, and more with this waterproof phone case.
Necessities Stay hydrated! Don’t forget to pack a cooler with plenty of beverages like water to keep you cool. And snacks are a must as well. Bring sandwiches, fruit, and sides to keep you and your fueled while you play.
Additional items to pack for a beach vacation include: towels, beach blankets, a beach umbrella, sunglasses, bug spray, and a beach tote to carry those loose items in.
