Summer is finally here and what better way than spending it on the beach? we recently went to Cobourg Beach which is about a ninety minute drive from Toronto. Though it was a little cloudy and a tad bit chilly, my beach essentials came in handy! Below are a few of my fav must haves when making a trip to the beach!

1. Sunscreen. 

We all know the importance of Sunscreen! I always make a point to wear sunscreen every time I leave the house and wearing it to the beach is essential. I make sure to apply some on the face, hands and legs especially when I know i’ll be playing ball!!

Pro tip: I love the spray bottles. They provide a very convenient way of applying sunscreen all over your body. It’s an absolute must have in your beach bag!

 

2. Sunglasses.

These are a necessity for pretty much any outdoor activity. Ideally, carrying an extra, inexpensive pair, would be a good idea so you wouldn’t be worried about them breaking or getting scratched. I however, only own one pair and that’s what I took with me. Luckily, they didn’t break or get scratched!

 

3. Beach hat. 

I love beach hats! I think they are adorable and make the whole outfit look so much cuter! What’s even better is that it acts as a shade and protects your face and neck from the sun!

 

4. Reading material.

For me, I’d rather play beach volleyball or do some watersports but there are times where I just want to lay down and enjoy some quiet reading time! Depending on your mood, I suggest either taking a magazine or your favorite novel.

 

5. Beach Bag.

Isn’t that a necessity? I mean where else would you carry all your cute items like the ones mentioned above? I like a cute beach tote for myself where I can store my own personal items. I usually do carry another bag where I store other items such as a towel, a picnic blanket, bathing suit etc

Pro Tip: To protect my essentials, I prefer a bag with some sort of water resistance to keep the moisture away from my electronics.

 

6. Water/Liquid. 

Playing ball out in the sun or even swimming makes me very thirsty and having a water bottle nearby is essential to stay hydrated.

Pro Tip: To stay hydrated and energized, electrolytes are an absolute essential when playing in the sun I personally prefer coconut water but that can be easily substituted with your go to gatorade.

 

What do you like to carry when you go out to the beach? Comment below!
