Miami has some fantastic beaches, but you don’t want to get there and find you lack the essentials. If you are wondering, “what should I take to the beach?” here are some items to consider packing. Some are must-have beach items, others are popular items, and the rest will put you over the top. Make it a stress-free day by packing everything you need.
You should have something to sit on, such as a great sand-free beach mat or an awesome chair.
Some additional must-have items are a great bag that filters out sand and water, and a way to find some shade should you need it.
While they may not be necessities, these items can take your beach game to the next-level.
We love these beach glasses because not only do they hold your drink upright in the sand, they float! Easily one of our favorite things on this list, these Lazy Bunz are amazing for the beach, boat, or pool. These floating mats are all the rage and it’s easy to see why, they bring the fun for young and old. This chic Serena & Lilly beach chair will have you sitting pretty! This inflatable pillow won’t blow away on windy beaches, it is cute and comfy too. Of course you could take any old speaker but why not splurge on this Bang & Olufsen pink speaker.
Now that you’ve got all this great gear, you need something to tote it all in.
It’s always a good idea to bring something to keep you entertained at the beach, here are some fun toys and games to add to your list.
Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen, UPF clothing and hats, bugs spray, towels, and your favorite refreshing beverages and snacks. We hope you discovered some great things to take to the beach. After having the best beach day ever, make sure you take all of your trash with you, as anything left behind can end up polluting our oceans.
