Step Up the Fun: The Must-Have Family Beach Day Essentials

December 23, 2021 — by Valeriya Vimon

Spending the whole day on the beach is a perfect opportunity for families to spend more time together, enjoy nature and just appreciate the feeling of being alive. Just hearing the sounds of waves crashing on the shore, the gentle ocean breeze on your face, and the smell of saltiness of the sea will make you feel completely relaxed and at ease. 

But when you visit the shore with your kids, your experience may not turn out the same, especially if you didn’t pack properly or brought all the important beach stuff with you. To make sure you get the most out of your beach experience, you should make a list of all the must-have beach accessories you need to bring with you. 

What Are Some Beach Necessities?

Beach Toys

To keep your kids entertained and happy, it’s important to bring with you the right beach toys for them. There are many beach toys that can keep them occupied and won’t take too much space in your package. For instance, a good-quality inflatable beach ball is a must-have for kids of all ages. There are many games you can play with it – be it together with your kids, or leaving them to play among themselves. You can play catch, or you can also suggest some other fun games, such as balancing the ball on your head and trying to walk, or try spinning it on your fingers until it drops. 


Besides a beach ball, digging toys are also a great idea. A classic bucket and a shovel are all you need to give your children and keep them entertained. These will provide them with the opportunity to get their creative minds engaged by collecting a variety of rocks or seashells in their buckets as a treasure. You can also do it together, and scoop up uncovering different life forms and damping back them in the oceans. This is s a great way to show your child that you enjoy every minute of spending time with them.


The depletion of the ozone layer has increased our risk of sun damage, and spending a day on the beach without being properly protected may sound like a recipe for disaster for the next few days for the whole family. Having in mind all the negative effects of the harmful UV rays including premature aging, discolouration, the appearance of dark age spots, and wrinkling, you should be more cautious the next time you get out in the sun. 

Therefore, besides trying to keep your kids entertained by giving them the right beach toys, you should make sure they are also safe and well protected from the sun. We all know that kids love splashing in the water all the time, but overdoing it without being properly protected, can cause irreversible skin damage and some health complications.

Therefore, it’s of vital importance to protect yourself and your family with a natural sun protection sunscreen. Compared to the chemical sunscreen, this natural sunscreen is specially formulated to absorb into your skin and protect it from the sun’s harmful rays. Being fully packed with carrot pigments and organic oils, this nutrient-rich formula provides high natural sun protection while promoting a healthy glow and enhancing the skin’s natural defence against sun stress, pollution and UVA damage. The ingredients in these sunscreen products leave no toxic residue on you or in the ocean, which makes them also environmentally friendly.

Pop Up-Beach Tent

Sunscreen isn’t enough to protect you against harmful UV rays if you are exposed to the sun for a long time. Sometimes you need a break from the sun and a beach pop-up tent is a perfect solution for this. Moreover, investing in a proper shade will make your beach days safer, and much more enjoyable. A beach pop-up tent will offer you enough privacy and space to store and keep all your beach essentials such as surfboard, beach towels, and beach chairs protected.

These handy pieces of equipment are lightweight, easy to assemble, and won’t take up too much space in your luggage. You simply need to anchor it into the sand to make it stable. This pop-up feature is very important as the last thing you want is to spend hours setting up your tent while your friends are having fun at the beach. There are lots of brands that produce high-quality beach pop-up tents. Most of them are designed from high-quality materials with high UV protection and enough room to provide space for up to four people.
