As well as those items you should take to the beach, there is a number you shouldn’t.
Here are a few of the things you should leave behind when you spend a day at the beach!
Electronics – There are a few electronic items listed on my beach packing list, but I would keep them to a minimum. If the item you want to bring isn’t waterproof, I wouldn’t bother. The last thing you want to do is take an expensive item to the beach, only for it to break because water got in the system!
Food – Again, this one is at your discretion, but I wouldn’t take an excessive amount of food to the beach. It will attract bugs, birds and flies, which is the last thing you want when you’re at the beach. Take a few snacks and make sure they are well wrapped to avoid any unwelcome visitors!
Valuables – The number of valuable items you take to the beach should be the absolute minimum necessary. Beaches are hotspots for pickpockets, especially the busier ones. Lock anything valuable in your, where it’s out of sight, or leave it at your accommodation if you can!
Boots or trainers – Boots are completely unnecessary when you’re at the beach. They certainly aren’t fit for purpose when it comes to walking on sand. While trainers will fill up with sand, which can take a long time to get rid of. Going barefoot or wearing flip-flops is all the footwear you need to pack for the beach!
