Boys will need shorts, t-shirts and vests for the daytime. If they are sporty and adventurous, then casual ones will be fine. If you are planning any evenings at the beach, or beach parties, then a loose fitting shirt/long sleeve top will be a great buy, and can be teamed with linen trousers or smart ¾ lengths to smarten up the beach look. Every beach boy needs a good hat and pair of sunglasses. Flip flops/sandals are pretty important too. If you have a surfer boy, then board shorts, and perhaps a wetsuit may be needed.
