- Baby powder is amazing when it comes to removing sand. Just sprinkle some powder on your skin and the sand falls off.
- Consider cutting out the suit linings of children’s bathing suits so that large accumulations of sand don’t create droopy drawers.
- Mesh bags are perfect for storing sand toys. The mesh allows airflow which will dry the toys quickly, and sand will fall right through the mesh.
- Bring along some leave-in hair conditioner and apply it when you get out of the ocean to prevent tangles as your hair dries.
- Freeze the water in your water bottle. It will serve as an ice pack to keep your lunch cool, and when you need a drink, the water will be nice and cold.
- Clean out last year’s sunscreen tubes and use them to hide valuables. Simply cut the flat end with scissors, wash, dry, then apply strips of Velcro to the inside and, ta-dah, the perfect hiding place.
- Bring extra zip-close plastic bags to protect cell phones, e-readers, and other electronics. When you’re ready to go home, use the plastic bags to carry those seashell collections home.
- Apply vinegar to sun-kissed skin (be careful not to get it into your eyes). Wait 15 minutes and then shower in cool water. The vinegar will balance the skin’s pH level and take out most of the sting. It also reduces blisters that lead to peeling. This beach tip really works!
- Don’t bring expensive sunglasses to the beach! One big wave hits, and the glasses are gone forever. Instead, purchase cheap glasses that offer protection but won’t leave you sad if they’re lost at sea.
Now that you have the beach tips you need, go out there and have some fun!
