It’s time for some fun in the sun! We’ve rounded up the most charming beach essentials to make your beach day even better! From the best beach chairs to beach towels, see our charming list below!
Warmer weather means a beach vacation! During the summer we try to spend as much time at the beach, but I’m not one for packing the entire house. I made this list because I like simple, easy and charming items that work well.
So weather you’re hosting a beach bonfire, a charming gathering or just spending a full day at the beach, these items are sure to make your day brighter!
Charming Beach Essentials
Table of Contents
This year I updated a lot of our older beach and outdoor gear. Since we’ll be spending a lot of time outside, I wanted to donate our old stuff and invest in items I would love for years to come.
I never forget my beach chair now that I found one that is so simple to cary on my back and quick to unfold. No bag or extra steps to fuss with. Here are a few we love, along with some beach tables.
Beach Blankets and Beach Towels
Beach towels are great for drying off, but a beach blanket is a must for creating a larger, sand free area. These are all charming beach towels that you’ll have for years to come.
Sand Cloud makes super light weight sand-resistant towels that are super absorbent. They also dry 3x faster!
Coolers, Water & Food Storage
Packing food and drinks for the day is a must when we’re at the beach. I use a larger tote for dry food items and food storage and our Hopper cooler that we can carry on our back for cold items and drinks.
Another favorite item is the gallon jug of water. It’s saved us a few times!
Beach Umbrellas and Beach Tents
If you’re spending hours at the beach, it’s nice to have a little shade. Umbrellas are on the top of our beach essentials list!
I am not one to fuss with any kind of giant beach tent that requires poles and other difficult tasks! It’s all about simplicity and style, which is why we love these options below:
Bali Beach Tent – Super small to carry and takes 1 min and 30 seconds to setup.
The Best Beach Bags and Totes
A tote is a must for carrying food, towels, accessories and toys. I actually have a separate mesh bag for beach toys, but love a large utility bag for everything else. One of our favorites is the Bogg beach bag, check it out!
If you are bringing a lot of stuff to the beach and maybe have a toddler in tow, make it easy on yourself with a beautiful beach wagon. These carts are just as stylish as they are practical!
With two kids, we know there will be some sandcastle building so we always pack a few fun beach toys.
Large Sand Water Away Toys Beach Mesh Bag – Perfect for letting the sand fall through the mesh.
Just a few simple beach accessories to pack!
Best Beach Sunscreens
Protecting yourself and your kids at the beach should be your number one priority. My kids wear rash guards when the sun is blazing hot, hats and sunscreen. I never go to the beach without a hat and sunscreen. Here are a few of my favorite sunscreens for the family.
We hope you’ve been inspired by some of these charming beach essentials! We’re ready to update our old gear and head to the beach in style! What are your favorite beach essentials?
