Soaking in the sun outdoors is the best way to spend your time this summer. Although this summer has differed from the past years, you can still enjoy a socially distant beach day! Make your beach days even better with these five things.
Have Somewhere To Sit
Be sure to bring something for you, your friends, and family to sit or lay on. A beach towel or large blanket is a perfect lightweight solution for a seat. You can also bring a traditional beach chair that you can relax in on the sand or near the water. If you want an all-in-one chair, the party beach chair has a cooler, side table, and umbrella attached to it!
Keep Your Food and Drinks Cool
Food and drinks will fuel your energy when spending a long day at the beach. While in the heat, you will want to keep everything as cool as possible. Stainless steel water bottles keep drinks colder much longer than plastic water bottles. If you bring alcoholic beverages in a can or bottle, a koozie is a great option to keep them cool while holding them in your hands. Everything that you bring to the beach can be conveniently placed in one large rolling cooler.
Stay Protected From the Sun
It is never fun to end your day at the beach with burnt skin. Take precautions so your skin is protected against the sun’s harmful UV rays. Remember to bring sunscreen and reapply it every few hours. Wear a hat to protect your face and glasses to protect your eyes. You can also set up an umbrella to rest under when you need a break from the heat. We now carry a customizable sunburn alert UV color changing sticker from Sun Burn Alert. The color changes to blue when it is time to reapply your sunscreen.
Play Outdoor Games
Playing games on the beach is the best way to pass the time. A classic game of corn hole is both fun and competitive. You can bring a beach ball into the water to play “keep it up.” If it is not too windy of a day, Frisbie is another option for some physical activity.
Chill and Take Some Time to Yourself
Pro tip–bring a waterproof speaker so you can jam out to upbeat music or relax to soothing sounds. Start reading a new book, or bring along one of your old favorites. Take a walk on the beach to find shells or shark teeth. Spending a bit of alone time can reduce your stress levels and result in a happier rest of your week!
