It might only be spring, but summer is right around the corner which means hot temperatures and sunny das. And what better way to find relief than packing up and heading to the beach? I will go to the beach any chance I get and over the years, have figured out exactly what I need for a successful beach day. I recently shared a Reel on Instagram with some beach bag must-haves but wanted to dive even deeper and share with you everything you need to keep in your beach bag.
Everything You Need to Keep in Your Beach Bag
Oversized Beach Towel
A good towel for the beach is a must and these are hands down my favorite ones. They’re so soft and perfectly oversized.
I think we can all agree that the worst part of summer is the chafing and irritation from the heat. This body glide solves this problem! Think of it as a deodorant for your body, minus the odor blocker. It helps to avoid chafe and helps keep the body hydrated. I love using this on my thighs!
Hair clips are a must in any beach bag! I’ve been using these for months now and love them so much. For under $10 for eight clips, you truly couldn’t get a better deal. The colors are so good and they’re really strong!
Floating Waterproof Pouch
Whether you’re going to the beach, a pool, or heading out on a boat for the day, a waterproof pouch that float is a must-have for your phone. I love using this one, especially to take under water photos.
Beach Towel Clips
If you’re someone who likes to sit on their beach towel on top of their chair but hate when the wind blows it off, these clips are a must-have in your beach bag. Think of them as clothes pins for your beach towels, helping to keep your towel in place.
Instant Print Camera
When you’re at the beach, it’s hot and sunny, and using your phone isn’t always possible which is why I always keep this camera in my bag! It’s small and compact, perfect for keeping in your beach bag and capturing memories.
A good sun visor or hat is a must for the beach! They’re chic and keep the sun out of your face, but also protects your head and face from harmful UV rays.
Portable Travel Razor
This portable razor is truly the best! It not only comes with a razor head but also has a soap bar and spray bottle you can swap in so you can shave quickly if you forgot to before heading to the beach.
Handheld Stroller Fan
Okay, before you say “Julianna, this is for strollers,” think about how hot you get at the beach. By attaching this stroller fan to your beach chair for some relief on a hot day!
Sunscreen is a must all year long, but especially in the summer when the UV rays are at their strongest. To help keep your skin protected and avoid sunscreens, a good sunscreen is a must and this one is my go-to.
Once you have all of your beach bag necessities, it’s time to pack them all up! This mesh beach bag is truly the best; it keeps your items in and sand out. The shoulder strap doesn’t slip and the pocket on the outside is perfect for the items you need to access quickly.
