Beach Bag Essentials

Summer is here, and if you’re like me, the beach is the best place to go. I always love to see what people put in their beach bag, so I thought I’d share what I put in mine! My iPhone and Apple Watch are a given, but this list consists of some out-of-the box recommendations.

Not very unique, I know, but they are essential enough to be mentioned! I always take a cute but inexpensive pair to the beach in case they get damaged or lost. I’m obsessed with these from Francesca’s!

Ziploc Bags

My best beach secret! I always put my phone in a Ziploc baggy to protect it from sand/water. The touch screen works through the bag; you don’t even have to take it out!

Pocket Charger

I always take my portable charger for my phone. I never have to worry about not being able to reach someone or playing music. Let’s be honest; the worst thing at the beach is no music! Here’s the one I have on Amazon.

Baseball Hat

My face burns so easily, so I always use a baseball hat for extra coverage! My go to hat this summer is pale pink with a pineapple on the front from Zumiez!

Monogrammed Cup/Beach Cup Holder

I love a cup that will keep my drinks cold all day long, and the one my sister got me is perfect! Avoid a sandy drink and put it in a cup holder that fits right in the sand is the best way to stay hydrated on the beach!

The cup was a gift, but here’s a similar one on Amazon! I love these awesome cup holders!

A Good Read

I always try to read a good book on the beach! This time, I’m reading Grace, Not Perfection: Embracing Simplicity, Celebrating Joy by Emily Ley. It’s a great reminder to unwind and enjoy myself more often than I do.

I hope I’ve given you some interesting ideas! Comment down below and tell me what’s in your bag as well as what beach is your favorite!

Stay positive.

  1. I never thought of the ziplock bag! Great idea. Living in Cyprus, I’m on the beach a good 4-5 months out of the year, and I’m always worried about sand getting into my phone.
    Perfect ideas, thank you!
