Plan for the trip two days in advance
The most important thing for organizing a lunch on the beach trip is planning. Make a list of food items which are portable and can be easily carried to the beach. There is a good chance that you will miss something in the first go, but having enough time in between will allow you to re-check. Take food like chips, fruits, salads and small delights with you, so that you don’t have to make an effort while eating.
You can also arrange for a barbecue at the beach.
Buys water bottles
Purchase a good amount of water bottles and tin cans. Under the sun at the beach, there is a huge chance of dehydrating, so before departing, ensure that you have enough supplies. Also make a plan of how you will cater for the ice required in the water cooler.
Cater for the utensils
While some of the metallic or glass dishes can be carried to the beach, it is recommended that you buy paper cups, plates and plastic utensils which can be easily disposed off.
Take a large blanket or thick cloth with you
While dining, you will certainly not like to sit on the beach sand. Therefore it is advised to take a blanket with you. The blanket should be large enough to accommodate all your food items and the people. If possible, get hold of some foldable chairs that can be assembled around your location. Umbrellas can be put above those chairs to provide shade.
Cover your food with plastic sheets
An important tip is to cover all your food with plastic sheet to aluminium foils. This will protect it from sand contamination.
