Sun, sand, and seagulls. It’s time to hit the beach! A trip to the beach is the highlight of any vacation and the perfect way to spend time with friends and family in the summer. While nothing feels more laid back than the sand between your toes and the waves lapping at your feet, getting all the beach gear together can be a chore. To make it easier to hit the sand like an absolute expert, here are the best beach accessories to bring with you for your next trip down the shore.
Sandless Beach Mat
We all know that sand gets absolutely everywhere— from the crevasses of our sandwiches to…the crevasses of some body parts. But with a sandless beach mat, you won’t have to worry about that. The mat has two woven layers that instantly filter sand back to the beach and prevent the grains from reemerging through the bottom. Unlike similar sandless mats that can be rough on the skin and bulky, this model is as soft as a blanket and rolls up into a convenient pouch for easy portability. The mat also eliminates dirt and dust from its surface and is water-resistant to enable easy clean up and prevent mold and mildew.
Working on your tan? No problem! This packable beach lounger serves as a chair, recliner, or a fully flat lounger. Its design allows you to use it massage-table style, with a face opening and arm slots that let you to lie prone and read in comfort while sunbathing without neck strain. When you are lying in a supine position, the headrest pillow supports the neck from behind. The lounger can be manually adjusted to five different positions and the footrest adjusts to three positions.
High Performance Cooler
Bringing a beach cooler enables you to have food, snacks, and beverages chilled and within reach. After all, a day at the beach really works up an appetite! This 25 quart PFG High Performance Cooler will keep your items cold as it can keep ice for up to six days. The heavy-duty stainless-steel handle with TPR comfort grip makes the lightweight cooler incredibly portable. It even comes with a convenient built-in bottle opener. And when you need to lighten the load before packing up the car to head home, simply use the drain plug to release excess water from the box.
Serve’s up! A game of beach volleyball is no match for you if you’re wearing top-of-the-line sunshades. Did you know that sand intensifies the sun’s powerful rays? A pair of Oakley Split Shot sunglasses is just what’s needed to protect your peepers. Providing all-day comfort and a no-slip nose pad (which increases its grip when you perspire), the eyewear lenses enhance color, contrast, and detail for an optimized experience, minimizes glare, and filters 100% of all UVA rays.
While other beach umbrellas are doing the hula dance in the wind, you can count on the OutdoorMaster Beach Umbrella to be sturdy and secure.
