Is there a better way to escape the day-to-day stresses of life than relaxing at the beach? We think not, especially after the small survey we’ve conducted at MyMalls on the subject. Unsurprisingly, results have shown that going to the beach is at the top of almost everyone’s most relaxing places list. It makes total sense, beaches are beautiful, breezy and offer many activities for young and old alike. And, since we’re still living in a pandemic in 2021, going to the beach is one of the few socially distanced activities that helps make life feel more normal.
Let’s be honest, going to the beach is an entire production. It takes some degree of preparation and can be a bit stressful when you’re trying to decide what you should pack! Therefore, Team MyMalls has put together 5 must-have beach items you wish to take to the beach with you.
A full day at the beach calls for heavy-duty sun protection and this moisturizing water resistant sunscreen fits the bill. No matter what, you should always use a biodegradable or reef-safe sunscreen. Standard sunscreens contain too many synthetic chemicals that cause lasting damage to aquatic ecosystems. Therefore, Team MyMalls recommends Raw Element’s face and body sun protection. This SPF 30+ sunscreen is packed with nourishing antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, protecting your skin long after environmental exposure. It’s made up of 95% organic ingredients and is free of soy, gluten and nuts! Safe for all ages, using Raw Elements means protecting yourself and the environment! It comes in a reusable, recyclable, plastic-free tin. US $18.49
Hydration is incredibly important when you’re spending time in the sun. Therefore, this insulated water bottle is perfect for the beach bum. It has a double-wall vacuum-insulated stainless-steel construction that keeps beverages cool at all times. The leakproof insulated spout lid is also BPA-free, which allows for convenient one-handed drinking or pouring. Made by Amazon Basics, this water bottle is ideal for much more than the beach. Best part is it comes with an Amazon Basics 1-year limited warranty for $15.99, which makes it a steal!
The perfect beach bag should have three qualities; it should be lightweight, roomy and very easy to clean sand out of. This bag has all of that and more! Don’t let the mesh fool you; this sturdy tote is big enough to carry 4 to 6 beach towels, water bottles, toys, sunblock, shoes, sunglasses and everything you need for a great day at the beach. Made of environmentally friendly materials, it contains 8 roomy mesh pockets on the outside so you can have enough space for your iPad, Kindle, cards, phones, sunnies all separated and organized. Plus It’s made for traveling; it folds up neatly for storage and packing, making it a steal at only $13.99.
Nothing says beach more than an oversized 80 x 155cm towel. And these terry cloth fabric towels are the best! Some of us at MyMalls can vouch for this! Aside from the cuteness level, these cabanas have an amazingly high water absorbency level. They come in a cute 6-pack in purple, royal, turquoise, 1 Green, orange, and pink for $32.50
Oontz Angle 3 bluetooth speaker makes going to the beach a whole lot more fun! There is no more risk of losing your phone in the sand. Keep it tucked away safely and let the Oontz takeover as the beach DJ. This waterproof and sand proof speaker comes with a rich sound that has a 300 meter wireless range. If you’re serious about a party you can play this up to 14 hours straight from morning until the evening hours. This 4th-gen outdoor speaker is available on amazon for only US $25.99.
No matter what, the most important tip Team MyMalls has to offer is to always use sunscreen at the beach and hydrate! Dehydration and exposure to UV rays are common dangers at the beach. So, cold drinks and extra snacks are always a good idea. Also, make sure to check the weather report before heading out for tides and currents. Bask in the sun, swim some and make sure you’re ready for the ultimate beach day!
