Having a great time at the beach comes with some rules to optimize your fun. You need all the essentials and all the know-how to keep your beach day perfect.
Rule #1 Apply sunscreen every time you go in the water, not just after the first time…every single time. I know I’m pale, but my tan friends were aching too after not following this rule.
Rule #2 Always bring a water bottle to the beach. Whether you’re building a sandcastle, have become completely parched or don’t want anyone seeing you drink your favorite beach cocktail, it is a necessity.
Rule #3 Do not decide the water is too cold until you get past your lady (man) parts. The ocean is cold, but getting past that crucial point is when you can really decide if you can do it or not. (Would not have had such an amazing game of frisbee in the ocean if it wasn’t for this rule.)
Rule #4 Stay away from rocks. I’m not saying this because they’re dangerous. I’m saying this because that is where trash collects. Avoid this area at all costs.
Rule #5 Bring the heat at the beach. That means towels, snacks, cards, sandcastle building supplies, kites, frisbees, volleyballs, speakers, those unnecessary chairs with roofs on them, etc. Whatever it may be, bring all the things and enjoy.
Rule #6 Bring cash for your mandatory ice cream at the end of the day. Your sweet tooth will thank me later.
I absolutely loved this one piece swimsuit from Zaful. It was a little cheeky because of my long torso, but it looked amazing. I also don’t think I would have survived without a beautiful and strong beach bag. All of the items that you need to bring to the beach can be accommodated by this bag (minus the chairs from Rule #5 haha). Get the look details below.
