With beach season in full effect, we’re dreaming of long days spent out of the office and by the water. Assuming we’re all in the same boat (pun intended), we’ve compiled a list of the five essentials you’ll need this summer.
A multipurpose beach bag is the first thing we won’t leave the house without – for obvious reasons. The perfect beach bag can satisfy your Mary-Poppins-esque tendencies while elevating your beach-bum status. We’ve linked a few of our favorites below.
A Bluetooth speaker will make you the queen of the (sand)castle this summer. Technically any Bluetooth speaker of your choice will suffice, although we are partial to those of the waterproof variety. You can find our favorites here.
A turkish towel… duh. There is no better feeling than sprawling out under the sun after a dip in the ocean, but sometimes a towel just doesn’t cut it. Laying down a turkish blanket under your towels, chairs, coolers, pong tables, portable mini fridges, whatever… can amplify your beach experience to the max. Why we love them: they are small, lightweight and dry quickly!
- The perfect water bottle to keep you hydrated throughout the day, so you can responsibly enjoy a cold one with the girls. Tamra copper water bottles can enhance your beach experience this season – on and off the sand. Made with ayurvedic copper, these water bottles possess properties that can improve your vitality, boost your immune system, increase your body’s collagen production, and more. Plus, they’re cute… and that’s equally important. All you have to do is fill it up, leave it in the fridge overnight, and let it work its magic.
- Your preferred Moroccan Magic balm. Our favorite flavors change on a day-to-day basis but the best for those hot, salt water days is probably the Lemon Thyme. The refreshing flavor is an added bonus to keeping our lips healthy and hydrated while catching some rays. See our other post on SPF to learn why sunscreen is in a ‘beach essentials’ category of its own.
