There’s nothing worse than getting to your beach holidays destination and realising you have forgotten something crucial, especially when planning a fun-filled day at the beach. This is where your ‘Blissful Beach Essentials’ list comes in. When embarking on your trip to the beach there are a few fundamentals that need to be taken into consideration. When leaving for the beach, make sure to follow this list to make sure nothing is forgotten and enjoy that blissful day at the beach! The perfect outfit has to be the ultimate beach essential, with a stylist bikini that you feel comfortable in, being top of the list. You also need a nice cover up to go over the bikini for going to and from the beach in, as well as a comfortable pair of flip-flops. The kids also need their children’s swimwear and, possibly even a spare pair of clothes in case of any mishaps.
Towels are multi-functional on the beach, as they have a variety of uses, therefore it’s usually better to take more than one; one for lying on, and spares for you or children returning from the sea. If the weather turns chilly this can be used as a cape, it can also double up as a picnic blanket to sit on.
A must for every holidays, essential for protecting your skin from UVA (responsible for skin ageing and wrinkling) and UVB rays (responsible for skin cancer and burning). A hat and sunglasses is also an essential for this reason to keep the rays off your face, and keep your head cool to prevent heat stroke.
A camera for beach photos
To capture all those friend/family beach memories.
Something to keep you and the kids entertained at the beach
Whether it be an e-reader, tablet, book or magazine that takes your fancy, one is essential at keeping you entertained whilst relaxing on the beach. Bucket and spade, beach/foot/volley ball or a Frisbee will keep the children entertained whilst you relax.
Food and drink
Water is essential at keeping the whole family hydrated in the sun, and a good picnic is essential at keeping everyone fuelled for the day.
A snorkel, swim cap , swim goggles, a float and a beach ball are all essential accessories that make swimming/playing in the sea more enjoyable for everyone. A baby float suit for little ones wanting to go in the water with parents is also advised, so they can join in the fun.
