Fourth of July weekend is coming up at a rapid pace and we just want you to be prepared. While many of you will surely stay home and go to a few BBQ parties or maybe head on a nature retreat of sorts, we are even more sure that a large portion of you will head to the beach.
The beach has got it all. Surf, sand, fun, but we just want you to be prepared. Sometimes it feels like we’re all just rushing at the last minute to gather our beach needs and head on our merry way. This time, don’t rush it and prepare. This way, you’ll never forget a thing again! Here are 11 beach essentials we’re dying to take with us on our beach getaways!
1. Beach Tent via Lovin’ Summer $169
This tent is no hassle to set up and so much cooler to sit under than an umbrella. Shade yourself from the stinging rays of the sun with this fun contraption that comes in quite a few prints!
2. Totême Beach Towel via Net-A-Porter $145
A beach towel is essential and you certainly cannot bring just any bath towel with you. You will need something big and off greater quality. This totem beach towel will have you covered – literally.
3. Monogrammed Cooler Bags via Etsy $16.95

Even as an adult, you cannot deny that it’s still epic fun to play in the sand. This collapsable pail requires less room and is more convenient!

Dining al fresco? Make sure you’ve got a good set of travel utensils that you can reuse!

Wading by the shore and building castles is cool, but make your beach outing that much more fun with this stellar bocce set. If you don’t know how to play bocce, don’t worry. We promise you and all your friends will love it!

Folding lounge chairs are essential for when you have had just about enough of the sand getting in odd places…. And for getting that perfect tan, of course.
10. Sunnylife Underwater Camera via American Eagle $20
You’ll want to post those candid snorkeling pics later on your instagram, right?
11. Floaties! via Bonanza $59.98
Finally: Floaties! Ok, this one may be cheesy but HOW FUN does it look? Amirite? Of course I am.
