Contrary to popular belief, a beach babe doesn’t just need “vitamin sea” alone. A responsible and expert-level mermaid must be prepared and equipped with her beach essentials. Whether you’re a newbie or a veteran, these are the must-haves you can’t go on a beach trip without.
1. Tote bag
The 'Riviera' beach bag is 100% handmade and produced in the Philippines! 🌴 It's woven carefully by locals and customized with pompoms & tassels @cheyzmeister did by hand. The first 'Proudly Filipino' collection will be released this weekend ♥️ Stay tuned! #WearStash #supportlocal #ProudlyFilipino #wearlocal #rattanbag #nativebag #banig
Preferably a woven or basket-style beach bag – one that’s water-proof and spacious enough to fit all your other necessities. It’s easier and more convenient to carry around the beach than say a backpack or duffel bag.
2. Sand proof towel
Sand-repellent towels are super handy if you don’t want grit everywhere. But more importantly, coastal erosion is becoming an environmental concern, so opt to use sand-proof towels or beach mats to avoid taking home sand when you go.

This should be self-explanatory, really. You don’t even need to go to the seaside to invest in sunscreen because you need sun protection wherever you go. Choose a sunblock brand with a broad spectrum and opt for those with both UVA and UVB protection. Don’t forget to re-apply every 2 hours or when you come out of the water!
4. Tanning oil
Det ser ud til at #sommeren så småt er på vej så køb dit #solcreme nu så du er klar til #solen ☀️ Vi har bla. #malibu #dryoil du kan bruge på hele kroppen, nem at bruge og så er den ikke fedtet. Denne er en #spf8 men vi har også højere faktor hvis du er efter det istedet?!? Kom og kik – lageret bugner 😉 #parfumeklik #solcreme #malibudryoilspray
Get your glow on with tanning oils! But because SPF is life, we strongly recommend you to get a tanning oil with SPF if you really want to get bronzed. Remember though not to stay under the sun for too long! Sunburn is not a good look.
5. Beach hat
You need to protect that precious little head of yours, too. The scalp is also part of your skin so don’t forget to bring a beach hat; preferably a big one that provides sufficient shade for your entire face.
6. Cover up
There’s a lot of sentimental value behind this piece .. it was the first garment I ever made that I was really proud of. I remember sitting down behind my laptop and typing in bohemian style clothing on Pinterest (because I love shopping on pinterest) and I was just so inspired to create something that I would wear, since so many of the things I was seeing were actually crocheted anyways. I found it really difficult to find a crochet vest that didn’t look “homemade”, so I made my own 💕 – And also – sometimes if I’m spending the whole day at the beach… or walking around.. I just don’t want my bum out, yenno? This makes me feel more comfortable but also more fashionable. 2 birds with 1 stone am I right?! – You better believe they’ll be at @thirdandbird in early May! (In white, cream, beige, and black!)
This is probably my favorite coverup because it’s somewhat fitted (or… maybe it’s just too small🤣). Either way, it gives a nice shape.👙 Sometimes coverups just look waaayy too baggy, although I know that makes them easy to wear! I am wearing my normal small, but there isn’t too much stretch, so if you are in-between sizes, I would size up!

We like to believe that stylish beach cover-ups are an extension of your bikini. If you’re done getting a suntan, you don’t need to put your shorts and shirt back on. Simply slip into a cute sheer cover-up as you walk along the shoreline or pose for an Instagram pic.

One thing you can do while getting a suntan is read a book. Waiting for that bronzy glow can be quite boring so drop your phone for a sec and appreciate a good book as you soak up the rays.
8. Bluetooth speakers
Cadê a galera que já começa o esquenta na sexta-feira? Aquele gostinho de final de semana delicioso que para ficar melhor só colocando uma JBL Flip 4 na bagagem! Faça chuva ou faça sol ela está pronta para ser sua fiel escudeira! ☀️🌊🏖️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📍5536 International Drive, Orlando 📱 WhatsApp: +1 (407) 601-9423 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @jblaudio #jblflip4 #jblspeakers #legendarysound #powerfulmusic #musiclover #amantedemúsica #praiana #yeallowsun #whitesand #funatthebeach #sunnyday #funnyday #friday #tgif #musicfeedsmysoul #brazilcenter #usa #riodejaneiro #praiasdomeubrasil #aprovadagua #waterproofspeaker #caixinhasjbl #beat #batidadopop #comprasemorlando
The beach without music is like a sandwich without condiments so bring along some good quality portable speakers to set the summer mood. Curate your summer playlist because beach music is just as important as sunscreen.
9. Post-sun hair spray
Your hair can get really dry when exposed to the sun for a long period of time. Just like your skin, your hair needs extra TLC when you’re at the beach. Spray on some post-sun hair products to restore and repair the damage the UV rays have done to your locks.
10. Beeswax balm
The summer heat can seriously damage our lips too if not taken care of. Beeswax balm will heal and soothe chapped and dry lips. Keep it with you at all times, especially during the summer.
