School holidays are almost upon us and it’s always useful to prepare in advance. Here’s what you should take with you on your next beach vacation and why:
1. Beach tent or umbrella
Whether you’re spending short or long periods on the beach, it’s beneficial to take an umbrella with you. Creating a shaded area gives you a place to escape to from the heat and it helps protect your skin from the sun. If you plan on spending hours at the beach, you may want to find a gazebo for sale or opt for a beach tent instead.
2. Beach chairs
Beach chairs help to create a comfortable spot on the beach for you and your family. If you’re not a fan of getting sand everywhere, this is an essential item that will help ensure that you enjoy your summer holidays.
3. Sun protection
Sunscreen is a must-have for summer, so make sure you follow the instructions on the back of the sunscreen product you buy. It’s advisable to apply sunscreen before you get to the beach and to reapply it throughout the day according to the instructions. Other useful skincare products include lip balm and skin lotion.
4. Cooler box
Keep your drinks and snacks chilled by finding a cooler box for sale. If you’re heading to the beach with your family, make sure that you get a large, durable cooler box to take a long enough water and food for everyone.
5. Beach bag
Prepare for the beach by choosing the right type of bag. The bag you select will depend on what you plan to take with you. If you’re going to the beach with children, you need a larger bag to accommodate everything that you need. A tote bag or a backpack are both great choices. A water-resistant bag that has a durable design is a great option. A bag with pockets will help you to stay organised so that you can locate essential items quickly.
6. Beach towels
Beach towels add colour and functionality to your day in the sun. You can take along a blanket to place under your beach tent or umbrella so that you can use the towels solely for drying off excess water after swimming.
Finding a gazebo for sale is a great option as it provides shade for longer days on the beach. It also offers you a great place to set up chairs and a small table so that you can enjoy snacks while you relax outdoors.
8. Swimwear and dry clothes
Comfortable and stylish swimwear is an essential item you need for the beach. Don’t forget to take along a hat to protect your face from the sun as well as flip flops to shield your feet from hot sand. Even if you plan to spend most of your time under a beach umbrella, it’s always good to have the added protection of a hat and sunscreen.
9. Water! You need to stay hydrated
Make sure that you stay hydrated by packing plenty of water. The minimum amount of water adults should drink per day is eight glasses. This amount increases when you spend time in the heat.
10. First aid kit
A first aid kit is a handy item to own, especially if you have children. Plasters and pain relievers are just some of the essential items that should be in your kit.
Once you have everything you need for the beach, you can look forward to your summer holidays. From finding a cooler box for sale to buying beach chairs, you can find everything you need on the Junk Mail website.
