Getting ready for a day at the beach, especially when you’re planning with a big group, is always a little hectic. The stakes are high: If you forget just one essential thing, you run the risk of having to interrupt your perfect beach day for a run to the nearest store or back to the house—or put a halt to your entire day.

To help you live your best life at the beach, we rounded up our favorite beach essentials you need to add to your bag.

First, get yourself a spacious beach bag like the Market bag pictured above in neon pink with enough room for bulky items such as beach games, bathers, bottles; and everything else you’ll need to have the best beach day yet. You don’t want to be carrying an arm-full of items, particularly if you’ve a long walk to that special spot you wish to settle in for the day.

Keep it cool – No day at the beach is complete without sipping on a warm drink and unintentionally taking in a mouthful of sand. While we can’t guarantee you that you’ll avoid the sand completely, our cooler bags will keep your drinks safe and super chill. They’re wonderfully large, yet super lightweight – perfect for a day at the beach.

Lounge like a pro – A cute, luxe towel is my all-time favorite beach accessory; but I’ve found that adding a beach pillow, especially if it’s a matching set, takes ocean-side bliss to an 11 out of 10. Tossing a beach pillow in your bag is the easiest way to give yourself a luxurious, prop-up. Get ready to be the envy of all, with our amazing selection of pillows and luxury towels.

Are you on-board with the float phenomenon? – The must-have accessory of summer, taking over Instagram since 2017 – is back and better than ever. Wade one of these cheeky floats into calmer waters and hang onto it with a couple of pals. Toss one in your bag or just keep it on the sand, at hand for Insta purposes.
