9. Mesh Slip-On Water Shoes: Men and Women or Men Women Water Shoes or Misaya Unisex Quick-Dry Water Shoes

When at the beach, it is important to protect your feet in and out of the water. Remember that rocks and sharp shells abound and they can cut unprotected foot, which might result in infection and certainly will not feel great. These water shoes are ideal for beaches; they grip well, dry quickly, and don’t collect sand.

10. Beach Umbrella or BEACHBUB All-In-One Beach Umbrella System or Beach Umbrella Rainbow

After spending some time in the sun, you will want to take a break from the heat and UV exposure. Which means that you will definitely need an umbrella. These umbrellas provide shade from the sun when it is time to take a break. They anchor into the sand so that the breeze cannot blow them away, and large enough to give cover to more than one person simultaneously.

11. Sunscreen or Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen

Its very important to always use a sunscreen whenever you’re spending a lot of time in the sun. You don’t want to suffer sunburn which will make the beach much less enjoyable. These sunscreens are formulated to help protect your skin from the sun.

12. Waterproof Float Strap for Devices

If you’re bringing your various devices close to the water, ensure they are waterproof and can float. But even if they are waterproof if you drop them that might be the last you see of them.  Imagine losing your waterproof camera and it sinks to the bottom of the ocean. That would put a dent in your fun at the beach. This float strap will help keep your devices, such as phones and cameras, afloat so that you can easily retrieve them if you lose them. You can also wear it on your wrist, which “insure” your device doesn’t fall in the first place.
