As much as a beach day sounds idyllic, in reality, the whole excursion is a production. Whether you are taking a day trip from city to coast or partaking in a weekend Airbnb situation, these seasonal affairs can go from chic straw hats and soft Turkish towels to forgotten sunscreen and third-degree burns real quick. To save you from collapsing under the weight of your (once again) overloaded tote, we streamlined a beach accessories packing guide to better serve you.
We cover all the bases, from folding chairs you can actually carry to durable bags that still look stylish and beauty products packed with SPF. We also selected some essential water-resistant entertainment, snack packs, and the best wine to BYOB. Scroll on to shop and put the breeze back in the beach weekend.
