There’s nowhere better to enjoy summer than at the beach. The open skies, sandy beaches, and big ocean make a wonderful escape from your daily routine. And the warm weather coaxes us all into a lazy, summer haze. Time seems to always slow down by the beach, allowing visitors to move leisurely and to explore and dress comfortably.
Here’s what I recommend packing for your next beach getaway:
It’s always fun to see what new colors and patterns are featured each summer. A bikini is perfect for lounging under the sun, while a one-piece gives a little more security for an active beach outing.
Since you’ll likely be outside in the sun most of your trip, I’d recommend bringing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses to block out a few rays. You’ll also need a beach bag to carry all your belongings.
