It is already summer season so if we ask you guys what constitutes your favourite activity in the delicious summer time, we are more than a hundred percent sure that you would say hanging around on the beach. And we are not just talking about the girls or the women but also about boys and men (most of whom are looking for a good summer hangout if you know what we mean, no bias intended). Summer season should be re-named as beach season because anyone who isn’t busy in the office would either spend their time on an available beach or travelling to one. What we have here is a list of beach essentials that you must have with you if you plan to spend most of your summer lying on wet sand, basking in the sun, getting a gorgeous tan and letting your worries just fade away into space. Behold the beach day essentials.
10. A Beach Bag
The first item on our list is pretty much a no-brainer since obviously you need something to put all your belongings in right? The mistake that most people often make is that they forget to carry a bag or a tote due to the deceiving thought that it’s only the beach, what’s the point in lugging a handbag around. Well dearies, as it turns out, you will need a little something to safely put away the rest of the stuff in this list. Marc Jacobs has a good collection of luxurious beach bags and if you are looking for something off-the-rack there are plenty of options at your local stores to chose from. Anything even ruck sack would do.
9. A Towel and a Beach Blanket
The next beach day essential on our list is a towel and a beach blanket. Trust us, we know from experience that the lack on these two things can cause you major displeasure as well as turn your mood from funky and relaxed to sour and foul. What happens is that once all wet with sand stuck in every possible curve of your body and slinging from every hair strand, with the sweat combined with the oil from the sun and what not, you would be crying out loud if you don’t have a towel on you to wipe yourself free of the grime. Furthermore, believe it or not, the sand on the beach is actually pretty hot and if you would like to lie down on it, you might as well carry a blanket. The repercussions for not having one are pretty damned obvious.
8. An Umbrella and Sun Glasses
The next essential on our list of ten essentials for a day on the beach is an umbrella and sun glasses. Imagine a situation, extremely peaceful, where you are lying on the beach enjoying the sun in all its glory and even though they are closed, your eyes are pinched together due to the intense sunlight. Well that is what the sun glasses are for, thanks abundantly for the imagination. Secondly, how would it feel if you are running around the beach looking for a spot to lay your blanket? With a handy umbrella, you can just pitch it wherever and lie down. Convenience is what makes it fun trust us.
7. A Water Bottle
Next on our list of essentials for a day that you intend to spend on the beach will include a water bottle. This might come as a surprise but you can get unbelievably thirsty on the beach and obviously you cannot take a sip from the ocean you know. Carrying a water bottle will prove to be useful and will also help combat any dehydration that you might be feeling after a solid game of beach ball.
6. Sunscreen with Triple SPF
The sun rays are good for you because of all that Vitamin C and all but you need to be careful while on the beach. Although we all love getting a little tan, extra exposure to the harsh sun rays (which are unusually harsh on the beach) can cause sun burn. To avoid that from happening, we strongly recommend that you use a sunscreen with a high SPF.
