I personally use a SPF sunscreen of 50+ or higher. I really like this Coppertone Travel size lotion. It’s not greasy and doesn’t take up a lot of room in the beach bag!

Sand Remover

This little invention is genius…but also like why anyone hasn’t thought of this before!! Great to easily brush and clean the sand of your feet, the kid’s toys, the cooler wheels, or anything that has sand on it before getting in your car!

Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

I have this waterproof speaker and I highly recommend it! It easily connects to my phone and Spotify account. The sound is amazing and because it’s waterproof, I don’t have to worry about having it on the beach with us. The battery lasts all day long and into the night which is great for the led light 6 colors that you can change to illuminate the area around the speaker! Super cool!beach essentials

I’ve talked about this water bottle in several of my travel tips articles! I love it. It has a purifier inside and allows me to track my water intake daily! I take this one everywhere with me…especially to a beach day!!

A cooler with drinks is a must have and these rolls so easy on the sand! We’ve had ours for almost 2 years now and it holds up to 84 cans plus has a lid with 4 cup holders which comes in handy on the beach. Also, we loaded it with ice for a 9-hour Disney Road Trip and the ice stayed cold for the entire road trip plus several days!

Ice Packs
