Beach Day Essentials

There’s no better place to spend a hot summer day than the beach. While sand between your toes and a view of the sea is the ultimate setting for rest and relaxation, preparing for a beach day can be a hassle. Amy’s beach day essentials will help make sure you can go to the beach worry-free and enjoy every minute of it.

Lounging on the beach is the best way to enjoy the summer weather. The last thing you’d want is to forget something important that will force you to leave your summer oasis too soon. I’m sharing some of the essentials that are always in my beach bag, plus some additional tips that will help you make the most of each and every beach day!

My Beach Day Essentials

1. It all starts with a beach bag. You want something that will fit everything you need without feeling bulky and still looking cute. I use a woven tote that I got in Mexico City. The woven material is perfect for the beach because the sand sifts right out, so it’s easy to keep clean. You can find similar totes on Etsy!

2. Another beach necessity is a tapestry to sit/lay on. There are so many great options to choose from, but I use a tablecloth from Amanda Lindroth.

3. To pass time at the beach, I love to listen to audiobooks. So, I always have a pair of headphones packed in my bag. I finally got airpods and love being wire free!   

4. A speaker is a great addition to your beach day must-haves. I recently bought this JBL waterproof speaker and I love it. It’s super lightweight, comes with a clip so it can hook onto your beach chair, and can be purchased in a variety of pretty hues.
