8 Essentials for a Day at the Beach

[Picture by Jordan Ferney at Deauville, France]


When the weather gets warmer and the temperature of the Pacific sounds tempting instead of terrifying, it’s time to head for the beach. Sunny days on the sand are pretty much perfection and with these 8 essentials, you’re guaranteed a great day.

  • Striped Beach Umbrella 1 of 8

    To stay out of the sun, I like to take a big umbrella. Especially good for little kids to play under.
  • Wooden Beach Chair 2 of 8

    A nice set of wooden beach chairs you can throw over your shoulder are worth investing in. You'll keep them for years and they are much cuter than their plastic counterparts.
  • Collapsible Grill 3 of 8

    This grill is great for cooking hotdogs and veggie kabobs over a bonfire - and it can go through the dishwasher and collapses into one tiny tube.
  • Turkish Beach Towels 4 of 8

    I love the look of Turkish beach towels and they don't take up as much room in your bag as a normal towel.
  • Vintage Bocce Set 5 of 8

    Playing bocce ball at the beach is probably my favorite beach activity (right after toasting marshmallows).
  • Tree Branch Marshmallow Toaster 6 of 8

    When it takes 10 minutes to toast a marshmallow to golden perfection, you might as well cook more than one at a time!
  • Classic Kite 7 of 8

    Ocean breezes would be perfect to fly a classic rainbow kite.
  • Vintage Coleman Cooler 8 of 8
