The kids are out of school and the sun is here to stay – it’s the perfect time to pack a bag and bring the family out for a day at the beach! Avoid the fuss of forgetting something at home with our Beach Day Essentials list. We have everything you need in one convenient place; let the relaxing begin!
First things first, swimwear! Whether you plan on taking a dip in the ocean or lounging on the sand, a fashionable swimsuit is all you need. Bench carries a variety of styles for men and women – an easy one-stop shop for any beach-goer.
Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the little ones. Carter’s | Osh Kosh made it extra easy with their ‘Buy One or All’ option. You can get the full beach set for him or her, or opt for individual pieces and mix and match!
No more socks and sneakers! It’s time for lightweight sandals that are easy to throw on – and easier to take off. The American Eagle Sunni Flat Sling from Payless Shoesource is perfect for you ladies who want something minimal and chic. But if you want something different, they have an array of styles to choose from!
For the men out there, we recommend Payless’ Dexter James Lightweight Slide. These slides come fully equipped with memory foam in the soles for extra comfort all day long!
Sunglasses & Hats
Protect your eyes while looking chic with Dynamite’s stylish sunglass collection! Find your perfect pair to complete your beach day attire. Once you’ve found your sunnies, stop by Aldo and pick up a wide-brimmed hat to keep your face out of the sun. The Lonardo style is our personal favourite!
A big, roomie bag is essential to carry everything you need for the beach. Here’s our favourite from the Gap, it screams sunny vacation and it’ll keep your things from getting sandy or wet. Plus they add that final touch to any summer outfit!
Leave your earphones at home and bring a waterproof portable speaker for everyone to enjoy instead! This one from Walmart is compact, dirt-proof, and durable – perfect for a day along the coast.
Water-Resistant Phone Case
Don’t miss photo opportunities down by the water! Just toss on a waterproof phone case from Bell and snap some candid shots – worry free.
Snacks, Snacks, and More Snacks!
Last but certainly not least, don’t forget to pack some treats to keep you energized all day long. Mix and match dried fruit, candy, assorted nuts, chocolate covered pretzels and more from the Bulk Barn! They’ve got a snack for the any craving!
