Let us help you pack the items you will want and need for a day at the beach with our Ultimate Beach Checklist For Families.

You have a vacation coming up and are going to spend lots of time at the beach. A family beach day can mean a lot of gear. But bringing the right items to the beach will ensure a more relaxing and enjoyable day for the whole family. If you’re like me, without a list I have a tendency to over pack. So the last time our family headed to Newport Beach, CA, I put together this handy checklist of beach goodies.

Beach Checklist For Families:

  • Beach Cart or Wagon
  • Towels
  • Beach Blanket
  • Folding Chairs
  • Sand Umbrella
  • Waterproof Sunscreen
  • Chapstick with SPF
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Wipes
  • Ziplock Bags
  • Sunglasses
  • Hats
  • Hairbrush
  • Small Cooler
  • Snacks
  • Water
  • Bottle Opener
  • Beach Toys/Games
  • Floats
  • Snorkel Gear
  • Books
  • Cash
  • Cell Phone/Camera

Most important thing to bring to the beach is your energy and patience! Hauling gear and your family to the beach is no easy task, but the memories your family will make will be well work it.
