I grew up land-locked. If I wanted to go to a beach we had to drive for hours to dip our toes in the sand. Seventeen years ago, we moved to the west coast. The novelty of the beach has not worn off on me. I try to spend as much time as possible there and if the weather report mentions any temperature over 70 degrees, you better believe that I'm thinking about making a beach day out of it! I've gotten to be pretty good at packing a beach bag. I'm sharing some of my beach bag essentials today. I think I've become quite the expert after all my years of practice! You may just find some things you never thought to add to your bag before.

What's in My Beach Bag?

A Good Bag

I love a good sturdy washable beach bag with straps that are long enough to be carried on your shoulder but not too long that you can't carry it with your hands. You also want to make sure that your bag isn't too heavy because you're going to pack it full so you don't want any extra weight that you don't need. Inside zippers or pockets are great for storing small loose objects you don't want to get lost in the depths of your bag.


Thick Towel

Not all towels are created equal. We have a set of generously sized beach towels that are big enough to wrap around any sized body. Not only that, you can spread them out and they are long enough to lay on without your head or feet getting in the sand. They dry quickly and still stay plush.  

Hat and Sunglasses

I usually pack both a hat and sunglasses when I head to the beach. I want to make sure I protect my eyes and my scalp. Plus, the hat helps me keep my long hair from blowing in my face.

Double Wall Water Bottle

It's important to stay hydrated and I do love my ice cold water. I have found that these double wall water bottles are excellent at keeping your drinks cold even on the hottest day, which will keep you drinking water and staying hydrated all day!

Sunscreen

We always use sun protection before we leave for the beach so that we can rub it on our sand-free bodies. But, since I like to make the most of my day, reapplication is almost always necessary, so I pack extra sunscreen with us in our bag that the whole family can use. Make sure the bottle is full before you leave so you aren't stuck with an empty bottle when you get to the beach!


Lip Balm with Sunscreen

There is nothing worse than sunburnt lips, so I always bring lip balm with sunscreen in it and make sure I reapply often. The wind from the beach and sun will have you licking your lips, so you are going to want to make sure you reapply often so your lips don't get chapped and burnt.

Hyland's Earache Drops

My kids see water and they can't help but jump right in! They are like those water dogs that see a puddle and just can't help themselves! I know, because we have one of those too! We have dealt with ear pain, fever, irritability and sleeplessness since they were infants. For years, I have reached for the Hyland's Earache Drops, first to help relieve those symptoms that come on from swimming and splashing in non-chlorinated water. I love Hyland's Earache Drops because they are a natural blend of homeopathically-prepared botanicals and minerals that provides quick relief for my kids.


They are natural- like the kids' desire to want to jump, splash and play in the water!


As the sun sets on another fun-filled beach day, that's what you will find in my beach bag. We love living near the water!


What's in your bag? I would love to hear it!
