6. Sunhats and Towels
You need a sunhat to protect your eyes as you hang out on the beach and sunglasses also work for this purpose. You should also pack beach towels because you will need them to dry off after swimming and they also serve as mats if you are not able to buy beach mats. Soft beach towels are ideal to purchase and towels in light colors are the best for beach settings because they have a cooling effect on the skin.
Preparation for the beach begins at least two weeks before the trip when you are deciding which beach to visit and finding out what activities will take place there for the public. Buying beach items do not have to be expensive because discount retailers offer these at good prices. Bring first aid items such as witch hazel, bandages, rubbing alcohol, insect repellant spray, paper towels, and cotton balls because you never know when minor emergencies can happen. If you are on your menstrual cycle, you should pack a few sanitary pads or tampons. Finally, have fun and make new friends while you are at the beach.
