Never pack your items at the eleventh hour, before leaving for the vacations. Always try to pack your things one day before you leave for your destination.
Make a list of items you may need to have when you go to the beach. Make the list carefully, including all the items that are necessary for you.
Make sure you include sun protection products in your bag, such as lip balm with sunscreen, and aloe vera gel, which will protect your skin for any type of potential burns from the sun.
Take a hat with a wide brim with you, as it will really be handy to protect your face from direct exposure to the sunlight. Also, pack good quality sunglasses that offer protection from UV rays.
Take a large sheet or blanket with you, which you can use to place your items when sitting on the beach. The sheet should be wide enough to accommodate all your belongings.
It is really crucial to have a water bottle, which you can use to satisfy your thirst on regular basis.
Take some playing items like football, volleyball or Frisbee with you.
You should also take a long-sleeved shirt, along with inner pants with you. As soon as the sun goes down, the temperature decreases. At that time, you may need to wear the extra clothes.
You can take a camera with you, in order to capture some special moments with your friends and family members.
Be sure to keep some onions with you. They can come in handy in case of blue bottle bites.
