Beach days are here! Temperatures are rising and days are getting longer; with the right gear, you can take the sun and sand to the next level. For the perfect day, you’ll need snacks, songs and sun protection. We’ve rounded up our top 5 beach day essentials you can find Abt, covering everything from hydration to entertainment.
1. Water Bottle
The most important thing to bring on your beach day is a water bottle. Staying hydrated will keep you safe while you swim and sweat in the sun so you can feel your best after a long day. While Abt offers plenty of options in terms of color and capacity, the Takeya Actives insulated water bottle is one of our favorites thanks to its convenient design and ability to keep drinks cold for 24 hours. Insulated water bottles are the way to go in the summer because they keep drinks colder much longer than plastic—and they’re better for the planet, too. Plus, how fun is this summery coral shade?
2. Polarized Sunglasses
Keep your eyes safe on sunny summer days. Polarized sunglasses are much more stylish now, with many brands and styles featuring additional UV protection. These gold Ray-Ban aviators are unisex and flatter many different face shapes. Thanks to their polarized lenses, you can keep your eyes protected from the bright summer sun so you can focus on having fun. Combined with the scratch-resistant finish, these stylish shades are also surprisingly durable. Throw them on and catch some rays or start a beach volleyball game; either way, your eyes will be protected.
3. Portable Speaker
Every hangout is improved with a great playlist. Of course, water, sun and sand can be a problem for certain speakers. We love the Bose SoundLink Flex portable speaker for a beach day thanks to its IP67 waterproof rating—that means that no matter how much you splash, this portable speaker will keep playing your summer jams. Additionally, this device is dustproof so you can take it on just about any outdoor adventure. The rechargeable battery offers 12 hours of listening on a single charge so you can enjoy your favorite music the entire time you’re at the beach.
4. Water Resistant Earbuds
On the other hand, maybe you’re hitting the beach solo; that doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy your playlist. Wireless earbuds that can withstand the water, like the Apple AirPods Pro, are a great choice. They’re IPX4 water resistant and noise canceling, meaning a little water won’t ruin your new device; they’re sweat resistant, too, perfect for hot days. No matter how rowdy other beachgoers get, your podcast or playlist won’t be interrupted. The compact charging case keeps your earbuds charged and can easily fit in your pocket or beach bag, too.
5. Portable Grill
After a long day of swimming and sunning, you and your friends are probably hungry. In this scenario, a portable grill is an absolute must. The Weber Traveler portable grill is the perfect companion for beach day eats. Fueled by liquid propane, you can use it literally anywhere. We love the wheeled cart because you can easily take it from your car to the sand without having to drag it. And with a surprisingly generous cooking area, you can cook for everyone at the same time. The added prep space is great to set up forks and napkins or hold your drink while you grill.
