Don’t Forget These Beach Bag Essentials

Those long summer beach days are right around the corner! We are ready for the cold weather to be a thing of the past and get out to the beach for some sun. You don’t want to head out for the day and forget something so we put together this list of essentials.

Sunscreen is the most important! It might be the number one thing that could ruin a vacation if you forget. Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going in the sun and reapply throughout the day. Setting up an umbrella is a good idea as well so you can get some shade throughout the day. Choose a lotion or spray with a high SPF that is waterproof for the best protection.

Stay hydrated with a stainless steel water bottle. Hydro Flasks are very popular for keeping drinks cold longer and being trendy at the same time. Choose from a wide selection of colors and even go online and pick out your own color combination for a custom bottle. Throw it in your beach bag and stay hydrated all day!  

Don’t forget a towel! Of course, any towel will do but we prefer the large beach towels that double as a blanket. Share your spot in the sand and save room in your beach bags! We like this XL beach towel from Target or you can go for the fun round ones like this. These microfiber beach towels are great for quick drying and thin to pack easily.  

The sun can take a lot out of you. Solar Recover spray is our beach bag must. This light spray is an everyday moisturizer to hydrate your skin and provide sunburn relief. The essential oils give it a pleasant scent and will leave your skin feeling refreshed after a day in the sun.  

Embrace the shade. Most of us love sun-kissed skin and feeling the warm sun across our face but you don’t want to overdo it. Invest in a nice, shady hat so you can still protect your skin. We prefer this wide brim surf hat for all around shade or you can try a floppy hat with an embroidered message like this

Grab these essentials and pack your bag! Nothing can compete with a day on the beach. Your Bald Head Island vacation is waiting. Book today!
