A day at the beach is something most people look forward too. From prepping everything the night before, to singing your favourite songs on the drive there, beach vibes are truly unmatched! But when you’re at the beach, doesn’t matter if its one here in Ontario or on the coast of the Mediterranean, you need to make sure you have everything prepared in your beach bag.
If you find yourself feeling stuck on what to bring on your next beach trip, I got you! From all things sunscreen, moisturizers and sunglasses, here a list of all the essentials you need to pack in your beach bag!
The Beach Bag
Finding the perfect beach bag is all about personal preference. You can go for a more simple look with a canvas bag, a bolded pattern look or even a straw material. No matter which style you prefer, the bag needs to be big, and strong enough to hold everything you’ll need.
