10 Beach Must-Haves
We can’t believe beach season is almost upon us! We can just picture ourselves tanning on a towel, digging our toes into the sand and splashing in the waves. Want to make sure you have a perfect day at the beach? Pack your bag and head to the beach with Kidzworld’s list of 10 must-have items to enjoy some fun in the sun.
No. 10: Beach Towel
If you don’t want sand to stick to you like bees to honey, you better buy a beach towel! Grab an extra large one that is big enough for you to set things beside you, so they don’t get dirty either.
No. 9: A Good Book

No. 8: Sunscreen
We can hear everyone sighing at this one, but protecting your screen with suntan lotion is essential for healthy skin. Try one with a bit of sparkle to make your body shimmer in the sun.

No. 7: Hat
Whether you favor the baseball cap or fedora, a hat will help you stay stylish, cover up beach hair and keep cool.
No. 6: Sunglasses
Sunnies are one of our fave accessories for summer! If you are looking for more affordable options than RayBans and Oakleys, try buying imitation versions of the styles you love. That way you can mix and match depending on your outfit without spending a fortune.

No. 5: Beach Toys
Footballs, frisbees, volleyballs, oh my! The options are endless when it comes to ways to stay entertained at the beach. If you want to mix it up, try bocce ball!
No. 4: Sandals
Sandals are a must if you don’t want your feet to overheat. Leave the fancy ones at home and opt for something more casual. Our fave? The classic flip flop.
No. 3: Waterproof Camera
If you want to bring a camera to the beach but don’t want to stress about getting it wet or sandy, invest in a waterproof version. There are many affordable options that can take pictures several feet underwater and are durable enough to handle the gritty sand or the weight of your friend’s food.
No. 2: Protective Cellphone Case
We know there are some days you absolutely can’t part from your cellphone – like when you need to text your friend to meet up or call mom and dad to check in. If you have to bring your phone to the beach, always be extra careful. We love the OtterBox cases for a variety of smartphones.

No. 1: Bathing Suit
Of course, the No. 1 item on our list is a bathing suit! This is a must if you want to get a tan and have some fun in the water. Remember to bring a cover-up or T-shirt (for guys), in case you want some protection from the sun or you want to step into a local store, which likely has a no shirt, no shoes, no service policy.
