Off to the beach! You can do it, even during these restricted times, and here’s how. Many folks are going to the shore. The beach is generally safe, perhaps even more safe than home if you stay outside and maintain social distancing. Just find a beach in a state that has lifted their restrictions.
Now, in many areas, restaurants are still closed. But you can turn this into something positive and fun. Just find a beach cabin or condo with a kitchen to rent. Then, just try a gourmet cooking night, or try grilling out fresh seafood you buy at the local pier. So, have a happy vacation and check out the links below to the top ten list of the best “must have” beach items to make your stay on the shore more fun or to give as a gift to all the beachcombers in your life!
I bet you’ve been jealous of those folks at the beach who have those fold-up wagons to take all their stuff down to the shore. Our recommendation is the Mac Sports Collapsible Folding Outdoor Utility Wagon by Mac Sports. At around $60.00 dollars it’s gamechanger in enhancing your beach experience!
Forget those little beach towels and blankets. This beach blanket is gargantuan at 82” by 79” inches. It’s the Mumu Sugar – Sand Proof Beach Blanket. Great for picnics and concerts, too! Folds up small, is quick drying, and is heat resistant so you won’t get too hot as you roast in the sun! And at around $19.99, it is a super gift, also.
It’s hard to describe these so just click on the link and take a look. It’s a set of coasters that fit in the sand but hold your drinks up high and sand free. At around $16.99 for a set of five, they are the AOMAIS Beach Sand Coasters / Cup Holders in bright multi-colors so you will never lose them in the sand.
One of my favorite songs is, “I Love Beach Music” by The Embers. Enjoy their songs and other music with the COMISO Waterproof Bluetooth Speakers Outdoor Wireless Portable Speakers. Small, round, multi-directional with unbelievable fidelity and power, the speakers are also light, small, and have a beautiful industrial design. Get these speakers and you will wonder how you ever did without them. A bargain at around $41.99.
My favorite men’s swimsuit this year is the Kanu Surf Men’s Barracuda Swim Trunks. They come in a variety of colors and will add the “cool factor” to the beach bum in your life! They cost around $18.99 and are great!
Coleman is usually thought of as a hunting gear company, but their beach chair is the best. Sturdy, lightweight, and quality built, the Coleman Lightweight Utopia Breeze Beach Chair has a low profile to get you close to the sand. Well worth the price at around $35.00 bucks.
I simply LOVE this item. It’s the Sport-Brella XL Vented SPF 50 Sun and Nine-Foot Canopy Umbrella. But, this is much more than an umbrella. Because it kind of turns into a half-tent thingy. Words fail me, just click on the link…you have to see it to believe it! Costs around $56.00 dollars and well worth it!
No beach trip is complete without playing that weird little corn hole game. So, my recommendation is the Himal Collapsible Portable Corn Hole Boards. This great game folds so it’s easy to carry in the car. Comes with ten corn hole bean bags. And…it also converts into a really great tic-tac-toe game. So, it’s two beach games in one! Costs around $27.99 and is produced by Himal Outdoors.
Okay, this is officially the most adorable product I’ve every seen. It’s the Monobeach Baby Beach Tent Pop Up Portable Shade Pool. Just imagine an open tent shelter for baby with a little kiddie pool as its floor. Now baby can be part of the pool or beach experience and play in the water while still being safe and protected by a UV Protection Sun Shelter. Adorable! But don’t take my word for it. Click on the link. Grandmothers every where will be buying this as a gift for their grand-babies! Costs around $36.65.
Finally, there’s lots of women’s flip-flops out there. Some are good and some are really cheap and bad. Here are some of our favorites: Clarks Women’s Breeze Sea Flip Flop by Clarks (around $30.97), or the Women’s Cushion Breeze Sandal by Reef (around $34.95), or the Crocs Women’s Swiftwater Sandal Sport by by Crocs (at $27.99 it’s technically not a flip-flop but a really cool beach sandal).
