Beach Essentials to Pack in Your Beach Bag

Whether you have a beach trip planned for the summer or are lucky enough to live within driving distance, here are my beach essentials to make the most of any day at the beach, from clean sunscreen and a UPF 50 sunhat to an insulated cooler bag and a foldable beach chair.

Gingham Insulated Cooler Bag

A cooler is essential for any beach day. This gingham insulated cooler bag is the perfect size to pack drinks, snacks, or sandwiches for lunch. The handles make it easy to carry, and the fabric is durable and easy to clean. It’s available in a bunch of colors and patterns and is under $60.

Flip Straw Tumbler

I think everyone is familiar with the Stanley Cup by now, but have you seen their flip-straw tumbler? It comes in so many cute color combinations and is perfect for kids. It keeps beverages cold for HOURS and is leakproof.

Folding Collapsible Wagon

Trust me, this collapsible beach wagon is life-changing. If you’ve ever done the dreaded long walk from the car or your hotel room to the beach carrying a beach chair, beach bag, cooler bag, beach toys, etc., all in your arms, you need this.
