Is anyone shocked that I over-pack for the beach? Nope. You never know what you might need!
My number one is obviously snacks. Our friends always love to have fresh watermelon at the beach. Chop it up into cubes so everyone can share! Nic and I also love to buy dried mango strips from Dollarama. Other good greats are chips, granola bars (make sure your cooler stays cold so it doesn’t melt) and a can of pop-or a radler. No one in Toronto seems to care if you drink on the beach, it’s pretty funny.
Sun protection: hat, sunscreen, sarong, sunglasses
Entertainment: phone, KOBO, magazines
Anything else: towel (if you’re smart, get one of those straw mats from the dollar store so you don’t get sand on your towel), bathing suit, water bottle, and I love my waterproof pouches for my phone and KOBO
What do you need at the beach?
We’ve loved being so relatively close to Woodbine Beach in Toronto, so beach trips are super easy with our friends 🙂
