1. Beach Bag
For the start, of course you need the perfect beach bag. You want it to be durable and washable because it might take a lot of abuse from the elements (sun, wind, salt water and sunscreen.) Tote bags with a zipper pocket for your small essentials are a great option. For a far away beach vacation bring a bag that can be packed in your luggage or better yet one that can double as a carry-on bag.
2. Sun Protection
Make sure to liberally apply sunscreen of at least 30+ SPF before you head out for a day at the beach. Sunscreen needs some time to soak into the skin to achieve the protection. Waterproof or sport sunscreens stay on a little longer when sweating or in the water. Make sure to reapply throughout the day especially after prolonged swimming.
