Beach Bag Must-Haves

Beach Bag Must-Haves

Enjoy beaches near our Stamford rental apartments

As the hot summer days continue to roll, going to the beach is the best solution to cool down and have some fun. However, before you head out, be sure you have all the necessities you need for a day at the beach. So you don’t forget, we made a list of beach bag must-haves for you when head to the sun and sand:

  1. Sunscreen: If you don’t bring anything else, make sure you have sun protection when you go to the beach. No matter the SPF you choose, although we recommend at least SPF 30, pack sunscreen and put it on at the beach. And don’t forget to reapply throughout the day! Nothing is worse than coming home from the beach burnt.
  2. Beach Towels: Whether you use it to lie on or dry off with, beach towels are a must when going to the beach. Also, considering a beach blanket for lounging so you can keep your smaller towels clean for drying off with.
  3. Water and Snacks: From playing in the sand and being in the sun all day, you are going to need some water and snacks to be refreshed and energized. Plus, we don’t want anyone getting dehydrated. Pack a cooler full of sandwiches and water, and grab snacks like trail mix, crackers, granola bars or nuts to keep you energized throughout the day.
  4. Sunglasses and Hats: Both of these items are for protection from the sun’s strong rays. Glasses help to keep direct sunlight from your eyes and prevent squinting, while a hat can protect your scalp, face and potentially even ears from getting sunburned.
  5. Waterproof Speakers and a Book: These last two items are for entertainment, but they are still a must-have when going to the beach. It always helps to have these two for relaxation and fun.

There are definitely more things you could bring to the beach, but we believe these are the necessities to have a great beach day. What items did we miss on our list that you can’t head to the beach without? Let us know in the comments below!
