Beach Bag Essentials You Can’t Say No To


Are you planning to go to the beach this summer? Because we all know that summer is incomplete without trips to the beach! Of course, there are so many beach essentials that you can’t afford to forget on the couch at home. Here is a list of some of the items that are essential for beach outings.

cute tote bag

Obviously, you will need a bag to store your essentials. So use a nice tote to carry it all! Etsy has some cute, fashionable and affordable tote bags you need to get!

Solar cream

Protecting your skin from the sun is so important! Going in the sun without sunscreen leaves you vulnerable to sun spots, sunburn, dry skin, and inflammation. It also significantly increases your risk of skin cancer. Let’s not forget the giant blisters (which you’ve probably seen all over Tiktok. These don’t look fun). Using a reef-safe and cruelty-free sunscreen is also a good idea.


Sun Bum Body Lotion SPF 50 for your body

SPF 50 mineral sun stick for the face for your face

Scalp & Hair Mist SPF 30 for your scalp.

SPF lip balm

Again, the sun can be harmful, so it’s essential to use something to protect your lips. Intense sun exposure can damage the collagen in your lips, change their appearance, and even change the way you speak. An excellent choice for an SPF lip balm would be the Sunscreen Lip Balm SPF 30 – Watermelon by Sunbum.

Sun glasses

Protect your eyes from ultraviolet (UV) rays with cool and funky sunglasses! This dangerous UV light can damage your eyes and lead to serious eye damage, so save those sunglasses. This Etsy store has fabulous sunglasses.

A change of clothes

Bring a change of clothes for the end of your beach adventure! That’s so when you’re done swimming, you have a pair of clothes to change into, or at least, just in case, the outfit you wore at the beach makes its way to the ocean.

Plastic bag or Wetbag

Don’t want to get your bag and other stuff wet? Bring an ordinary plastic bag, a Ziplockor even a wet bag to put on your wet bathing suit! We’ve all been there, putting your bathing suits or wet clothes in your bag and as a result everything else gets wet as well. It’s so annoying, save yourself the trouble by carrying a wet bag or a plastic bag!


Again, sun protection is vital for a beach vacation! Bring a nice cap or sun hat with you! Wearing a hat can also protect your scalp and face from burns, so you can shield yourself from the sun and add a nice accessory to your beach trip! Village hat shop has a variety of good hats.

beach chair

Bring a beach chair where you can sit comfortably instead of sitting on the hot sand (which goes everywhere). Most beach chairs also fold up, making them easier to transport! HAUSHOF low beach chair from Amazon is a good affordable option.

A good book

Relaxing on the beach, reading an interesting book, what could be better? Reading is such an important thing that everyone should do it more often. Some beach-worthy books are: Blame it on our stars, It ends with us, call me by your nameand here is a listing for more recommendations!

Hair clips

Part your hair by tying it back or tying it with a claw clip or stylish rubber bands. What follows: Set of 8 large hair clips and 48pcs seamless hair ties from Amazon are fun to use. These clips are lifesavers when trying to keep your wild hair from blowing across your face and generally bothering you.


I can’t stress sun protection enough, but take an umbrella with you to the beach so you can relax in the shade. Not only is it more pleasant for you not to have the sun on your face, but it protects you against the damage caused by it. An affordable option from Amazon is ONIVA portable beach umbrella.


Take a nice little shawl or cover up to put on your swimsuit! Just so that if you want to walk into a store or restaurant or just feel more comfortable. This cover can be a large shirt, a dress or anything else. Amazon has some cool covers you should check out!

waterproof case

One thing I always insist on at the beach is my phone. Is it safe? Has it been soaked in water? Protect your device by purchasing a waterproof phone case. Universal Waterproof Phone Pouch JOTO is a great option. That way, if you want to get in the water and take pictures of yourself or someone else, or just float in the water and scroll through Instagram, without getting your phone wet or dreading it. A waterproof phone case would be a huge help!

Camera or GoPro

Record the memories of your trip to the beach with a camera or, better yet, a GoPro for underwater memories. The scenery on a beach trip is amazing and should be saved.



Listen to your favorite tunes from headphones or speaker. A mini waterproof speaker such as EWA Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker works well, as well as headphones like Apple AirPods, Philips wireless headphonesWhere Apple wired headphones.


If you’re going to the beach, planning to swim, or want to lay on anything other than bare sand, you need a towel! WETCAT Turkish Beach Blanket is perfect for your trip to the beach! You can lay your blanket on the sand and sit on it and use it to dry off after swimming.

Bottle of water

It is very important to stay hydrated, especially when you are in the sun. Take a water bottle with water or your favorite drink with you! Use a quality water bottle like this: Half gallon water bottle.

To taste

Bring something to snack on while you relax on the beach. Beach trips can be very exhausting, so eat a snack to replenish your energy so you can keep enjoying the beach. You can also bring it in case the place you are going to has no food or places to buy food.

swimming equipment

If on this beach excursion you plan to swim and peek in the water, take snorkeling gear or just a simple pair of goggles, ZEEPORTE Snorkeling Equipment and ZIONOR swimming goggles do a wonderful job!

power bank

You are not near a socket to charge your phone? Use a power bank, preferably solar powered, as you are in the sun. This raincoat Solar Charger Power Bank works well! Don’t catch yourself at the beach with a dead phone. You never know what might happen, so bring this power bank as backup.

Hope this helped. Now go to the beach and kill!!!
