Beach Essentials


Wow, we’re already in the month of July! Like most people, I’ve been spending my summer working as much as I can and searching for a new apartment. I’ve been pretty busy, but I have also managed to spend some time relaxing at the beach.

The beach has always been one of my favorite places to visit, and now I live ten minutes away from one! Unfortunately, I typically find myself too caught up in work to be soaking up the sun seaside very often. There’s also traffic and parking to deal with which also deters me from going 24/7.

Anyways, I always like to be prepared when I go to the beach (especially since I like to spend a few hours there), so I thought I’d share my essentials. Of course, it depends on what type of trip you plan on having (a fun day with friends, a relaxing trip by yourself, etc), but I tried to include items that would help either purpose!

Beach Wear

  • Flip flops
  • Bathing suit
  • Towel
  • Coverup/change of clothes
  • Sunglasses
  • Hat
  • Sunscreen
  • Ponytail holders
  • Backpack/beach bag


  • Book
  • Water
  • Snacks
  • Phone
  • Camera
  • Volleyball/frisbee
  • Speakers/headphones

Are there any beach necessities that I missed? Leave them in a comment below!

  1. Great post, I actually just posted my beach bag must haves recently too. I love your suggestion for headphones, I love listening to music while I tan.
