Travel :: Beach Tips

Going to the beach? Here's some tips and "must have's" for your beach bag!

Get baby powder to remove sand:

  • Pour ample amount of baby powder into hands.
  • Rub hands together and “wash” them like you would soap and water.
  • Tada! Great when taking kids along and when you snack, so you don't taste sand. It can also be used anywhere on the body to remove sand.

Beach Tips:

  1. Always have plenty of sunscreen to reapply often, especially with kids.
  2. Take a cooler full of cold drinks; water, juice.
  3. Take some snacks - someone always gets the nibbles.
  4. Use an empty container, like a cleaned out lotion bottle, to hold your phone/keys/etc - that way, they won't get covered in sand.
  5. Don't forget the baby powder!
  6. Have plastic bags or containers in the trunk to put the wet/sandy things when leaving.
  7. Take toys, a music box, books - depending who all is going.
  8. Take a first-aid kit - bandaids, lip balm, alcohol wipes, etc.
  9. Use hats to keep your scalp from burning.
  10. Chairs and an umbrella are nice to have.
