The summer season is fast approaching, so you better get yourself and your stuff ready before heading to the beach. Aside from booking your accommodation to your dream summer vacation destination, there are some pieces of stuff you shouldn’t neglect to have in your luggage. Are you wondering what those pieces of beach stuff are? 

Well, to give you a little helping hand, this article gathered 5 of the best beach essentials you shouldn’t forget to have in your bag before the bikini season starts. So, get yourself some papers and pen and list down the following summer getaway must-haves before stepping out on the sun! 

1. A custom swimwear

A beach vacation is nothing without a cute and sexy one-piece swimsuit. Wearing a swimsuit or your custom swimwear is what you need to complete your summer getaway. Choose the best style for your body shape, and select the best colour for your skin tone by purchasing custom swimwear from your favourite beach essentials store. 

What you’ll love about custom swimwear or a custom one-piece swimsuit is that you can partner it with denim shorts, a short skirt, maxi skirt, trousers, or layer it with a cover-up! 

2. A bottle of SPF sunscreen 

Soaking up under the summer sun is undeniably fun. There’s no better feeling than picturing yourself laying down on the beach while watching other beachgoers battle with the ocean waves, reading your favourite book, listening to your favourite song, or sipping a glass of margarita!

But before having the best summer days of your life, you better not forget to apply a high-SPF sunscreen first. Protect your skin from being badly burnt-out, and don’t let sunburns steal your summer joy.

Applying at least SPF 30 and up sunscreen can give you the amount of protection that your skin needs.

3. A chic pair of sunnies

Level up your summer fashion, and don’t forget to have your cutest sunnies in your bag before heading to the beach. A pair of sunglasses are perfect for protecting your eyes from the sun – plus, it adds to your overall beach look. 

4. A sand-proof and microfibre beach blanket

Who would’ve thought that a sand-proof blanket, which is initially improved or invented, for the military could also be your best buddy during sunnier days, huh? Of course, you wouldn’t want to ruin your beach outfit with too much sand on or bathed with the beach sand, right? 

Don’t let the sand get in your way to having the best beach vacation ever. So, before anything else, go to the nearest beach store in your place and find yourself a sand-proof blanket.

5. A roomy beach or tote bag

Before heading to the beach, don’t forget to have a spacious beach or tote bag before it’s too late. A spacious beach or tote bag can perfectly secure all the other beach essentials that you might bring with you at the beach.

Look for a bag in which you can put your beach towel, beach blanket, your book, SPF sunscreen bottle, sunnies, and even your extra beach outfits. 

Ready, set, and get sunkissed skin!
