Choose the Right Beach Bag

Invest in a spacious and durable beach bag that can hold all your essentials. Look for one with multiple compartments to keep your items organized and easily accessible, or bring a small bag to store all of your important items, like your wallet and phone.

Our favorite beach bags are Aloha Bags, which are sustainable and cute! These bags come in a wide range of sizes from makeup bags to coin purses, to large tote bags! Aloha Bags are waterproof to keep the waves away from electronics. Click here to read about how Aloha Bags give back to our environment!

Adding LainSnow, Corkcicle, and hats to your Aloha Bag

How to Pack Your Beach Bag:

1. Pack Sun Protection:

Sunscreen is a must have for any beach trip. Don't forget to pack your favorite pair of sunglasses too. You can toss in a floppy hat or ballcap to keep your face shaded. We love to pair this Salty Hat with this blue ribbed tank and jean shorts.

2. Don’t Forget Towels and Blankets:

Laying on the beach or drying off from the waves? Then you need to add a large beach towel to your bag!

Our favorite is the Sand Cloud Towel! This large and soft towel is sand resistant and rolls down for easy carrying in a smaller Aloha bag.

The best part about Sand Cloud Towels is how they give back to the environment! Click here to learn about how purchasing a Sand Cloud Towel gives back.

3. Pack your Favorite Swimsuit and Coverup:

Don't forget to pack your favorite swimsuit along with the perfect coverup. One of our favorite swimsuit lines is LainSnow. LainSnow has chic, modern styles in a wide range of colors! Check out this tan, striped one piece swimsuit paired perfectly with these cream sunglasses!

We also love to rep our community with our Wilmington T-Shirt! This t-shirt makes for a cute and comfortable coverup top. Pair the tee with jean shorts to complete the look.

Entertaining Beach Bags

4. Bring Snacks and Hydration:

Keep hydrated throughout the day by packing a variety of snacks and drinks. We like to bring lightweight and non-perishable options like granola bars, fruits, and nuts. 

Don’t forget plenty of water! Corkcicle cups are our favorite for beach days, hikes, and traveling! We like to use these large, insulated water bottles to keep our water cold and refreshing while being in the hot sun.
