What to Look for in a Beach Bag & What to Put in It

By: Lauren Tjaden


Planning a beach trip? You’re going to need a place to stash your stuff. Here are some beach bag basics that might not have occurred to you.

Your bag should:

  • Close securely. This will help keep sand outside and things like car keys inside.
  • Be brightly colored. An easy-to-spot bag will make it less tempting for someone to steal.
  • Be sturdy.

Stuff the bag with essentials such as:

  • Sunscreen. Apply it often! The Sunshine State rays pack a powerful punch.
  • Sunglasses
  • Towels
  • Hat
  • Snacks
  • Camera
  • Change of clothes
  • At least a little cash
  • Lots of water
  • Books, a Frisbee or a ball and a small first-aid kit are also smart ideas

A few hints:

  • Freeze your water for an hour before you go.
  • The items in your beach bag will stay much more sand-free if you put them plastic bags.
  • Sanitizing hand wipes will come in handy before eating those snacks you brought.
