Finally weather is warm enough to go to the beach. Although the water is still freezing cold for me and I didn’t get to swim, sitting in the sun while listening to birds and feeling the hot sand on my skin was really amazing.
In my opinion to have a great time and enjoy the moment is the first priority yet being safe and taking care of myself is equally important. So I try to be prepared and make sure that I have everything I need with me.
Before leaving I pack some snacks. I prefer fruits or veggies for hot days since they contain lots of water. I keep them cold using an insulated bag this way eating them feels good in the heat.
Any kind of sun-blocker is a must have for a sunny day. I use sun cream on my face and lotion for my body. Remember that you should reapply it every two hours or so. I’m a little too concerned about all the damage and danger that the sun can cause from skin burn to skin cancer thats why I in addition wear a hat to protect my face.
Everyone knows that staying hydrated is the key to stay healthy but when you are in the heat it is more crucial to drink water, lots of water. If you don’t like to drink plane water add a few pice of fruit or mint or a few drops of lime to it.
If I plan to spend a whole day at beach I’ll take my favorite magazine to read it while I’m laying and sunbathing. I also take my camera with me, there are lots of opportunities to take amazing photos while I’m walking on the beach.
Last but not least I take a little bottle of hand sanitizer and a deodorant spray for obvious reason.
We had a great time at the beach then we went to city and ate dinner before coming home. At that point the weather wasn’t that hot any more so having a light cover up was a good idea.
What do you take on a beach trip? Do you have anything to add to my list? please share them in the comments.
