Before You Head to the Beach, Bring These Items

One of the most popular spots to go and unwind during the summer is the beach! When living on Long Island, it’s not just a location, but a way of life — and we wouldn’t have it any other way! Besides knowing where to go and find your favorite spot in the sand to “set up camp,” there are a few things you should pack before you leave for the seashore. While some of these items might be a “given,” here’s a friendly reminder of what to carry with you:


Money + Identification

While you might have these items with you in the car, many beachgoers opt to leave these in their vehicle the minute they start to walk to the sand. No matter what, it’s essential to have money with you, just in case you’d like to purchase food or drinks while you’re at the beach. In terms of having an ID, that’s important, too, for those “just in case” moments. Now, if you don’t feel confident leaving these items in your beach bag, you can invest in a secret bank which will keep them out of plain sight and give you peace of mind!

Cooler

If you’re planning on bringing snacks, bottles of water, and ice cream, then it’s best to have a cooler on deck. While some beachgoers might bring a large plastic cooler with them, you don’t have to go overboard — bring something small and compact to keep your necessities cold all day long. Another great tip is to keep ice packs (in addition to actual ice) in your cooler, which will come in handy just in case you need another way to cool off from the blistering sun! 

Extra Clothes

Sometimes, your day can go a bit unexpected. Whether some rain comes your way or you and your friends opt to go out to dinner after the beach, it’s always best to bring an extra set of clothes. Another benefit of bringing spare clothes with you? If the sun gets too strong or you get too cold, you’ll already be prepared for the change in the forecast! 

Sunglasses + Sunscreen

These might be standards for every beachgoer, but it’s essential to be reminded of how vital they are. Since even the weakest of the sun’s rays can be harmful to your body, it’s crucial to protect your eyes and your skin. When looking for sunglasses, opt to have those that have a high UV protection level or are polarized. In terms of sunscreen, whether it’s lotion or spray, it’s crucial to choose a sunscreen with an SPF between 15 and 50, which will give your skin the protection that it needs from those harmful UV rays!

Beach Hacks 2019

If you’ve lived on Long Island for quite some time, then you’ll know off the top of your head what one of the most popular spots is during the summertime: the beach! Whether it’s Jones or Robert Moses, there are plenty of sandy places to reap the benefits of the gorgeous summer weather! Before you pack up the car and head on down to the shore, here are some “beach hacks” to keep in mind.


Secret Bank
Let’s face it: not everyone is honest. Sometimes, you’ll find yourself walking away from your belongings, go for a swim in the ocean, and return to your blanket to see that you’re missing something. If you’re looking to try and eliminate a problem, it’s best to purchase a secret bank.

No, this won’t look like a vault, but rather a tube of sunscreen or tanning oil. In fact, the product will look and feel just like the actual items, but each tube will be empty — until you remove the cap and place money/personal belongings inside. This will be one of the best ways to deter someone from temptation. Sure, you don’t have to bring your wallet — but if you happen to want ice cream and don’t have money on you, it might be tough to ask for an “I.O.U.” policy.

Sand-less Sandwich
Oh, you know that feeling well: sitting down on your beach blanket, ready to eat a sandwich — and then the minute you place it down to grab a soda, the wind blows, and sand particles get in between the meat and cheese. Yeah, it’s not something that any beach-goer looks forward to, but there is a clever hack to prevent it from happening: using a fitted sheet.

Whether you happen to have an old fitted sheet or purchase one from the dollar store, bring it to the beach and place it down on the sand. Once spread out, place some heavy objects in each corner and then pull the edges up around the buckets. This will be a perfect way to have a sand-free dining area!
