The Ultimate Beach Bag Essentials

After my girls trip to The Bahamas and our recent family beach days I’ve been thinking a lot about our seaside essentials and how to pack the ultimate beach bag. Our family absolutely loves the ocean and I always want to make sure we have everything we might need for the very best beach day. I’ve gathered a list of our family’s beach bag essentials when spending the day with salty hair and sandy toes!


The ultimate beach bag starts with the beach bag itself. I used this J’neen beach bag everyday while in the Bahamas and it quickly became my favorite. The girls could easily fill it up with any of their needs and there always seemed to be more room for more!
There’s just no going to the beach without sunscreen. Sun Bum is my absolute favorite. Keeps the kids and I covered all day while never feeling oily.

I absolutely love playing around with fun colored summer sunglasses. Styles that either highlight my summer dresses or my mood make me feel so confident while protecting my eyes from the sun.
Keep your face and neck covered from the sun with an amazing beach hat. Hat Attack has some of my favorite shapes and colors. Their many designs and options allows anyone to elevate their beach look.
Lets face it, if you’re a parent you cant go anywhere without packing snacks. My kids are currently loving these organic tortilla chips. Best part is they’re made of chia seeds and quinoa, so lots of protein and fiber.
Wash down your snacks with a beverage of choice in my favorite Yeti Rambler. I do my best to avoid one use plastic, especially at the beach! This high quality reusable tumbler will keep any drink cool while being BPA free and dishwasher safe.
These days when juggling a business and three children my phone is definitely a life line. Whether I need to check for emails midday or photograph the kids catching waves, I know at some point Im going to need to recharge. This Anker charger is the highest recommended portable charger on the market.
At under 2lbs this lightweight, oversized (fits 8 people) blanket is definitely a must for any family beach day! Easily foldable into its bag and machine washable once home. You’ll never carry a big pile of towels ever again.

    We just got back from vacation and these items were perfect for poolside days too! I love a good sunscreen and mug/tumbler!

  2. Big oversized sunglasses are always a must, not just for the beach! Bringing your own snack can save a lot of money.

  3. I cannot imagine how difficult it can be missing some of this. Seems that you got everything that you’d need. Now it’s time to think of a good way how to bring all of this.
