It’s time to plan yet another beach trip. As Labor Day weekend approaches, we know a lot of you have tickets booked to fly and party at Boracay or Palawan. Or, will just make a day trip to a nearby spot. We also hope you already have an outfit planned and put a bottle of sunscreen in your bag. What’s left to do is to pack your beach essentials.
Before you run towards the soft sand, you’ll need a few things so you can comfortably lounge under the sun. Peep our list below so you won’t forget anything.
You don’t want to sit on warm sand or get a sandy bum. Grab a big round beach towel like this one from Anemone so you’ll have enough space to sit. This also makes for a great flatlay background and also adds color to any Instagram selfie. Available online.
If you don’t want a beach towel, there’s this Plop Inflatable Couch. What’s great about it is that it comes in a backpack when deflated. Just use a small pump to add air to it. Easy comfort for the whole day! Available online.
Always make sure that you’re safe from the sun. Your shades and sunblock can only do so much. This beach umbrella will give you enough shade in case the sunlight gets too hot. Available at Bonifacio Central Square.
After a dip in the sea, dry down with this soft towel from Muji. You can also use this to cover up when you feel a breeze coming along. Available at Greenbelt 3.
Avoid using plastic cups to drink your water, soda, or cocktails in. For an eco-friendly option, go for these Klean Kanteen Steel Cups to share drinks with your friends and family. Available at Rustan’s Makati.
Keep all your beach needs in an easy-to-carry bag. A simple and cute design will complement all your summer outfits. Available at SM Aura.
