What to Bring On Your Summer Beach Trip

Planning on going out for a summer beach escapade? Hitting the beach is always a great idea when you want to have some quality bonding time with your loved ones, friends, and even office mates while grabbing the chance to enjoy nature. Hooray to ticking off one item on your list of beaches you must go to. Not to mention that it’s also a great time to show off that perfect body figure you’ve worked hard on for months. Nature, fun, and great social time make summer beach trips enjoyable.


Here’s a packing checklist of what you need to bring on your summer beach trip:

Skin Care Essentials

It’s great to soak up under the sun – but not so if you didn’t put on any sunscreens. Make sure you brought along your sunscreen, lip balm, leave-in conditioner, shades, lotion, and other skin care and hygiene products. Keep yourself protected from the extreme rays of the sun. You wouldn’t want to get premature wrinkles or cancerous radiation on the extreme.

Summer Beach Clothing

It’s the easiest to pack for summer beach clothing as compared to packing for winter. Your bag can be lighter while still bringing all your travel essentials. Pack along your beach essentials such as the appropriate swimwear, a wide-brimmed hat, extra shirts and shorts, a comfortable sweatshirt, and a light jacket. You may want to put on some light jacket on your night activities. Or you can also bring along your beach shawl as an alternative.



Bring enough water for your summer beach trip. You can expect it to be very hot so you better keep yourself hydrated. It might be better for you to buy a gallon of water instead of buying small bottled water from time to time. Or keep refillable bottled water if there’s a water fountain nearby. You may want to use a water filter just to be on the safe side.


You can try the restaurants nearby but bringing along a pack of snacks is a wiser move if you want to spend some of your travel budget for other activities. You may pack sandwiches filled with peanut butter, jelly, or banana – these fillings don’t spoil easily and don’t need to keep cooled. You may also pack small healthy snacks like nuts, raisins, small crackers, power bars, and some fruit.

First Aid Kit

It’s wise to bring along a personal first aid kit whenever you’re on a trip. Just think of it as an insurance – you never plan to use it but it will give you peace of mind just knowing that you have it.
