It’s summertime, which means beach trips a
plenty—hooray! But what to bring beyond your cute suit and coverup? We’ve got a
lengthy list of the perfect beach accessories so you can make a splash.
Big and bold beach bag
You’ll want to make sure your tote is big enough to
hold everything you need--this one has a zipper top to keep your stuff from
falling onto the sand.

Don’t skip the SPF
Yep, this one’s a no-brainer. Apply a strong SPF to
protect your skin for a full day of fun in the sun. Reapply every couple of
hours, or when you get out of the waves. (We like the spray-on kind so our
hands don’t get sticky. Simple and fast!)

Spray Sunscreen SPF 50, $11, walgreens.com
It’s cute when your towel coordinates with your beach
bag—we heart bright stripes for both. There’s no harm in stocking up on a few:
You’ll need ‘em to dry off, sit on the sand, wrap up with your crush and maybe
even use it to have a midday picnic.

that make a statement! Go for the foldable kind that’s easy to tuck in your bag
and won’t take up tonsa space.

Don’t forget about your lips! Keep your kisser
moisturized and protected by using a balm with SPF. Pucker up!

The strong summer sun and saltwater can have a
dehydrating effect. Stay cool by drinking lots of ice cold water. The bigger
the bottle, the better!
