Beach Day Essentials Packing List
Beach Umbrella/Shelter: Sometimes you need a break from the sun, I highly recommend bringing a beach umbrella or canopy if you’re planning to be at the beach all day. I included the highest-rated ones on this list.
Waterproof + Sandproof Phone Case: While most phones are water-resistant nowadays, it’s better to be safe than sorry. This is the one I use for my iPhone. Worried about your phone getting too hot? Check out this GENIUS insulating phone case that protects it from overheating.
Sand-off Mitt: Where has this been all my life!? This mitt is way more effective than your basic towel at getting sand off!
Book/Kindle – Nothing like a little beach reading! Need some reading inspo? Click here.
Lock/Safe – keep your stuff safe with this handy mini safe/lock box that you can lock to your beach chair.
Body Wipes – I like to bring body wipes to the beach to help get that sticky feeling off your skin after swimming in the ocean.
Mini Portable Fan – keep your cool with a mini portable fan! They are super affordable and SO worth it.
Beach Packing List: Clothes + Accessories
Tops – I recommend packing a couple of t-shirts and one or two nice tops (depending on how many dresses you want).
Bottoms – you’ll definitely want some shorts for the beach! I bring jean cut-offs and athletic shorts. Depending on your plans, you might want to bring a pair of jeans just in case.
Pjs – it’s usually pretty hot at the beach, so bring some lightweight pajamas1
Bras + underwear + socks – bring enough underwear for everyday + a couple extras. Take a look at the other clothing items you’re bringing to determine what kind of bras you need to bring (regular, strapless, sports bras).
Rain jacket – check the weather before you leave! If there is rain in the forecast, you should definitely bring a rain jacket!
Beach Packing List: Toiletries
Here are the toiletries/beauty products I include on my beach packing list! Of course, customize it for what you do and don’t need.
- Toothbrush + paste
- Face cleanser + lotion
- Chapstick (O’Keeffee’s is the best and it’s cheap!)
- Meds/First Aid
- Eye drops
- Bug spray (Wondercide is my favorite natural option)
