It’s June, which means that it’s almost officially summer. I don’t know about y’all, but I am so ready to head to the beach. I love going to the pool and lounging around outside, but the beach is one of the happiest places to be in the summertime. There’s sand, waves, sun, and fun.
But with the beach also comes hassle because you’re sort of isolated from things you need, sand gets everywhere, and you feel kinda dirty after a while. That’s why if you’re going to the beach, you need to be prepared. Here are 12 beach essentials you never knew you needed:
No more spilling drinks all over the sand! These spike coasters stick into the sand and hold your drinks and snacks.
Beachcomber Portable Beach Mat
This beach mat folds up so you can carry it around wherever you go!
When you're at the beach, you don't want to leave your valuables out in the open or even in your beach bag, especially if you're running around on the sand. I'm always scared to leave cards or cash in my bag just in case. Slot Flops take care of that issue. They're flip flops with a built in slot for your cash, ID, cards, etc. Neat!
Compartment Water Bottle
You should always bring water to the beach because, you know, hydration is important. But this one has a secret compartment for you to store money, keys, and other important things.
You don't want to use your phone too much on the beach because you need to enjoy the beach and keeping your phone out in the heat isn't good for it. But you don't want to lose your battery either so use this solar-powered charger to keep your phone at 100%.
Beach Towel Clips
Don't you hate it when it gets windy at the beach and your towel flies all over the place? Use beach clips to keep your towel anchored into the sand.
Waterproof Phone Pouch
No one wants to tote their smartphone to the beach in fear of getting sand and water all over it. Protect your phone by keeping it in a waterproof (and sandproof) pouch.
Chilling on a beach towel all day, especially if you're trying to read or something, can wreck your neck. Grab one of these wedge pillows to keep you comfy and store your belongings.
Flight 001 Beach Bags
These bags are essentially sandproof, which is exactly what you want at the beach. Most beach bags are canvas and you always end up with sand all over the place. Use these instead. Plus this set comes with a bag for your wet bikini.
Don't rely on your phone speakers to blast music. Opt for a portable, waterpoof bluetooth speaker like this one to have tunes going all day!
Always keep baby powder in your beach bag to use when you're ready to head out. Sprinkle it on your body and wipe it away to get all that pesky sand off.
UV Sense Bands
You should obviously be using sunscreen at the beach, but are you reapplying? Probably not. And you're probably not keeping track of when you should reapply. Get some UV sensor bands to make sure you're staying on top of your SPF.
