5 Must Haves for a Beach Trip
Carrying the correct essentials is a pre-requisite to any trip. While every vacation demands specific essentials depending on the climate or location, a beach trip has its own set of requirements which are absolutely imperative and necessary.
Following are some must-haves if you and family are planning a hassle free beach trip:
1. Obviously, swimwear is mandatory, unless you look forward to creasing your attire. To get the best of a late night swim, it is recommended you ensure your swimwear is fresh, clean one to avoid you being uncomfortable. Another set or beach wear such as vests work well for men and boys while women have selections from sundresses, t-shirt and shorts or wrap-arounds.
2. Sunbathing can sometimes take a toll on your skin. Something like a powerful and waterproof sun-block comes in handy; SPF 30 is the deal! And of course, the moisturizer or sun-tan lotion to get rid of the dry skin and keep it vibrant.
3. Footwear is another important aspect to look into when you visit the beach. Women usually have their flip-flops or sandals on. Men should opt for slippers or floaters as those are very comfortable for your feet. For the rest of you beach junkies, bare-feet gets a nod!
4. Towing your suitcase on the beach is not a pleasant site for the rest and not an easy task for you, I’m guessing. So, do not carry one! Beach bags or back-packs are something to go in for in this case. For the kids who are bound to venture into sea-shell and precious stone hunting, an additional small bag would do the trick. You wouldn’t want them to lose their treasure now, do you?
5. Sport games are the biggest treat of any beach trip. Beach toys, sport equipment must be tagged along if you are looking for a good time. Volleyballs, castle-sand making toys, frissbees, footballs etc are some of the most-used items here.
6. Those looking to just bask in the glory of the sun, while sipping on a pina-colada, your books or a music mp3 player/ iPod would be heavenly.
So when you go venturing to the beach next time, keep these tips in mind to guarantee yourself a great time! Although, for those with innovative ideas could always go to the next level to make a visit to the beach fantastic!
