If you’re heading to the beach, you want to be prepared and that means having it all in the bag; the beach bag that is. What’s the best beach bag for you and what’s the best stuff to pack it with?

If you are of the female persuasion and might care about appearances. If so, you’ll probably want a stylish bag that screams “you.” Grab a cute tote with colors that suit your suit, and head for the sand. 

Consider waterproof or even a bag with a built-in speaker if it suits your lifestyle. In any case, you’ll need a tote that can fit all of your belongings. Find a carry-all that can carry your all. 

You’ll need space for sunscreen. The higher the SPF, the longer you can worship the sun. SPF stands for sun protection factor and it provides a measure from how much of the sun’s pesky UV rays sneak through the screen. An SPF of 30, for example, allows 3.3% of UV to reach your skin. 

Roll up a towel that is big enough for beach naps and absorbent enough to dry you off quickly. You never know when the beach bar will be calling you for umbrella drinks. And on that note, be sure to stow away a few bottles of water to keep you cool and hydrated. 

Include hair products that help protect hair from the drying and fading rays of the sun. Some products already come equipped with UV protectants. A brush that is gentle on wet hair, and some extra hair ties will also keep your locks on lockdown. 

Make sure your tote has enough room to tote a cute coverup that can take you from beach to beach bar, or is appropriate for casual dining. Lightweight, versatile sandals or flip-flops are also a must-have in the bag. Walking on hot sand with bare feet, or going indoors to a hotel or restaurant, are all solved with some simple footwear.

Don’t forget your favorite read! The beach or pool is the perfect time to catch up on those book club meetings you’ve been avoiding. A magazine is great for those snippets of read-time you have between naps and lively conversations with friends. 

If you don’t feel like reading or chatting, chill out with your favorite tunes. Headphones and your favorite source of music are the perfect way to pass a sunny day.
