Hey BFF! Are you savouring the last bits of our golden summer too? If you’re a water baby like us, then a routine trip to the beach is most definitely on the cards (rinse and repeat every weekend!)
For those babes catching a few Saturday waves at the beach, we have put together our favourite tips to ensure you enjoy uninterrupted sun-time.
Prepare for an awesome weekly dose of vitamin sea, with our little go-to guide for prepping and packing the perfect beach day bag (you’re welcome!).
At Ellenny Swim, we have got you with our 4 best tips:
#1 The actual bag you choose is EVERYTHING!
Before we get into the nitty gritty, first-things-first, what bag are you going to take with you? Our advice? Ideally, you want something big enough to fit the essentials, but not so large that it becomes a mission to carry to and from your car. The ultimate bag would have separate compartments to sort out your beach day goodies. Even better, is a bag that comes with a zip. That last thing you need is to get sand in your bag. This can be a total nightmare to get out!
#2 Don’t forget the must-haves
Towel – check, water bottle – check, sunnies – check, snackage for later in the day – check! These are just some of the basics that will make your good beach day, a great beach day. Consider what sort of activities you will be doing on your beach day adventure, and then be sure to create a handy-dandy list of all the things you need to make the day happen.
#3 Separate your wet and dry stuff
This tip comes after our numerous beach days that ended up in soaking clothes, and soggy shoes! After dipping into the big blue, the last thing you want is to towel up, and get changed into a set of wet clothes. This is why we recommend getting yourself a waterproof tote bag if you can help it.
Also, like we mentioned earlier, a bag that comes with compartments will help with this. Remember, packing the bag on-the-go is the easy part, it’s putting everything back at the end of the day that can be the challenge. After being in the sun all day, a bag that has been separated out between wet and dry, is a lot easier to sort out. Trust us!
#4 Get sun-kissed and stay sun-smart
Get that glow but stay safe doing it. Between your sunnies, your beautiful beach day hat and of course, your sunscreen, it is super important to stay sun-smart. You’ll be out in the sun for a long time, so look after yourself. Choose a sunscreen that is at least an SPF 30, and put on your first layer about 30 minutes before you hit the shores. A hat can help with avoiding a headache that can come on due to dehydration – no thank you!
It's time to SEAS the day, as they say (see what we did there!). Of course, you don’t want to be hitting the beach without your favourite Australian swimwear from Ellenny Swim! Before you head out the door, be sure to explore our range of swimwear products here. Catch you next time ladies!
