What to Pack in your Beach Bag

What to Pack in your Beach Bag
What to Pack in your Beach Bag

Do you have a family vacation planned this year to Myrtle Beach? If the answer is yes, then we understand that spending the week sitting on the beach soaking up the rays is just what you need.  Staying in one of our One-Bedroom vacation rentals will keep you close to the beach but having the right things in your beach bag will allow you to enjoy your vacation. We have compiled a small list to be sure that you will be ready for your next vacation to Myrtle Beach.  

Beach Bag Items

Your Beach Bag

When you are on vacation having the right beach bag can make ALL the difference in the world. Sure, you can throw all of your items into any bag, but did you know that all beach bags are not the same. We suggest looking at the size, water and sand resistance, security and stylish when searching for your bag. We have found that even using a backpack, diaper bag or an even a large utility tote bag works perfect for a beach bag.

Beach Towels

When you are on vacation making sure you have packed everything before you leave home is essential. So be sure to pack a towel for everyone in your family whether you are going to sit in the sun or swim in the ocean. Bringing an extra towel with you is always a good idea especially if you have little ones with you. Having a beach towel with a different design can help each member in your group remember which one theirs is.

Sand Toys Bag

Anytime you go on vacation with kids, you have to bring a ton of sand toys with you. We understand bringing sand back with you into your vacation rental is not necessary and can be quite a hassle. So, if you pack a mesh bag such as a laundry bag or a bag specifically for beach toys can help eliminate the mess. Just throw the sandy toys into the bag, give it a good shake or two and leave the sand behind at the beach.

Sunscreen

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

With the hot, southern sun sunscreen is a must for any beach bag. Use a sunscreen that is designed for your beach activities such as waterproof, sport, high SPF, etc.). Dermatologists recommend that you use a sunscreen with at least 30 SPF while you are enjoying the sunshine. And don’t forget to Reapply throughout your day as we don’t want you to ruin your vacation the very first day your here with a sunburn.

Hats, Sunglasses & Protective Clothing

Bringing sunglasses and hats can be very useful for anyone who visits the beach. The sun is much hotter than it is in the north, so we want to make sure that your eyes and face are protected. Having sunglasses will protect your eyes from the sun bright rays and will offer you some relief when trying to keep an eye on your little ones playing. Whether you have a floppy hot or a baseball cap, you will be happy that you brought these along with you. Don’t forget to pack one for everyone in the family. Another thing that you may want to bring with you for the little ones are some protective clothing such as SPF shirts. Put them on when you feel they are getting a little too much sun and they will be able to still enjoy the beach.

Water Bottles

When you spend any amount of time in the sun and on the beach, you want to stay hydrated as often as you can. Throw a few water bottles in the cooler or bring a reusable bottle such as a insulated tumbler or an insulated bottle as they will keep your drink ice cold all day long. The sun and salt will dry you out so make sure that you have enough water to go around for everyone in your family for the whole day. If you are staying in one of our vacation rentals, then you will be able to go back to refill the bottles.

Sand-Free Hack

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

This is one item that you may not have thought about, but it is a must whenever you visit the beach. Whether you are staying in a vacation rental or you decided to drive your car to the beach access, sand will be all over you when you leave the beach. So, bringing baby powder in your beach bag will magically get the sand off of your body without irritation and leave a nice scent too. This is perfect for everyone in the family and not just the kids.

There are many other things that you can pack into your beach bag, but these are the must have items for your next vacation. If you haven’t made your reservations for your vacation, then check out our Myrtle Beach vacation rentals today. We can’t wait for your family to come and vacation with us!
