Going to the beach is one of the few socially-distanced activities you can participate in to make summer feel a little more normal. While you may not be making any travel plans this summer, you may be looking to beat this summer’s heat by taking a trip to your local beach or head up to the lake for the weekend. In that case, you in at the right place! Keep reading to find out what our suggested beach day essentials are for this summer. Here are some beach items you are for “shore” to add to your checklist (pun intended).
Beach Day Essentials
First things first, you need to bring water to keep yourself hydrated! This may be the most important beach day essential especially if you are planning to be out in the sun all day. You want to make sure you have a stainless-steel bottle to keep your beverage cold. Our top choice is the Cliff Top 2.0 Water Bottle. This bottle is double walled with matte finish and vacuum insulation. It also has a wide mouth opening which is perfect to chug down some water with! It has an extra-large capacity as it holds up to 1200 ml. (40 oz.). This large size will ensure that you will have enough water for the whole day.
Secondly, you need a beach blanket. You can’t go to the beach and not have a beach blanket! Our favorite is the Oversized Striped Picnic and Beach Blanket. This blanket can accommodate 4-6 people and is made of durable material that can stand up to chairs, pets, coolers, or anything you might bring to your next picnic or day at the beach. Featuring a water proof, spill proof, and sand proof design, this blanket is easy to wipe clean which makes it a perfect beach day essential!
It is key to bring a high-quality cooler to keep your beverages and snacks cool on a hot day. Our go-to is the Arctic Zone® 18 Can Cooler Backpack. Made with high density thermal insulation, this backpack features an exterior zippered pocket, mesh pocket and padded adjustable backpack straps. It also has leak proof features and is easy to clean. The backpack design makes this cooler even more convenient to carry along with the rest of your beach supplies.
It’s not a party until the music starts! A great way to add a little more fun to your beach day is to bring a speaker to play some tunes. We recommend this Waterbox Waterproof Speaker. What’s cool about this speaker is that it can be under water for a maximum of 30 minutes at a depth of no more than 1 meter. Its charge time is 3-4 hours and playtime is 6-8 hours. This beach day essential will last you all day long!
It’s always nice to have a chair to sit and lounge comfortably in on the beach. One of our favorites is the Low Sling Beach Chair. This low slung beach chair is perfect for spending a day in the sand as it is foldable and lightweight. It folds up and fits into the included carrying case with strap for easy transporting and storage. It even includes an integrated cup holder!
Not only are hats stylish, but they are also very protective. Wearing a wide-brimmed hat outdoors is great way to protect your hair, eyes, and skin from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. MOBO’s go-to is the ATC™ by Flexfit® Wooly Combed Cap. It’s an all-time best seller for a reason! Its ubiquitous baseball cap status is redefined with wool-like fabric and the original Flexfit® technology, making it easily the crowd favorite. This cap is even included in our Summer Bundle this year!
Embark on your beach adventures and make the most of your sandy times this summer. Whether you’re traveling in a pair, as a family or solo, this list of beach day essentials is sure to set you up for a successful and memorable day!
