Be sure to grab your beach chairs and your beach blankets, towels, a cooler or insulated bag for water and snacks, a beach umbrella, and flip flops or sandals. These items are just obvious when it come to packing up for the beach.

When at the beach, the number one necessity is a swimsuit! Be sure to think about your goal for the day with the swimsuit you pick. It could be a tanning type of day or just a day for the water!

There are many small things that you may forget to throw in your beach bag, but here's a quick list to double check: sunscreen, sunglasses, lip balm, deodorant, a personal refillable water bottle (STAY HYDRATED), beach hat, and much more!

Some of the items on your list soon just be some little extras to make your beach trip fun. Pack up your speaker, iPod or phone for some music, headphones, a good book. some games such as frisbee, KanJam, Spikeball, and so much more!

5. Food 

Some good, but simple foods to pack for the beach are some sandwiches, chips, and fruit! Although the broadwalk may have food to just buy, it's way easier to just pack up before your go! Don't forget to pack some extra money just in case you're in the mood for some ice cream!
