I love the beach! When I was really young we lived in Puerto Rico, then moved to Florida. That means that a lot of my childhood memories are of long walks along the sand with my mom and splashing around in the waves with my baby sister.
Eventually we moved to Atlanta and I had to settle for swimming pools and water parks. Those are fun too but it’s just not the same. That’s why I was so excited to move back to Florida a few years ago! Now we can go to the beach whenever we want and my girls will be growing up with those same memories!
Of course, when you go to the beach, it helps to have the right beach accessories! Some of my favorites are absolute essentials, like the beach safe and portable table, while other other beach gear is just plain fun. After all, I might not actually need a cooler with a blender but with the built in speakers, phone charger and more, this Coolest Cooler has become essential beach gear!
I even shared these recently on Sarasota’s Suncoast View. Check out the video, then keep reading to see which of these awesome beach accessories you can’t live without!
The Best Beach Accessories For Your Summer Vacation
It never fails. I put my drink down and every time I pick it up to take a sip, the bottom is covered in sand. I am loving this Sip Clip that easily attaches to the side of my chair, keeping both me and my drink sand free!
Not using a chair? Just take these colorful beach cup holders along and stick them right in the sand.
Even better, maybe I can bring this folding beach table for our drinks, snacks, bluetooth speaker, phone (okay, I may actually need a couple of these!).
Whoever came up with this piece of beach gear must have known my Keira. She gets so covered in sand that even her belly button is full. While this Sand Off Mitt won’t help much with the belly button, it’ll be perfect for getting at least some of the sand off before we pile in the car.
When it comes to beach accessories, these waterproof phone cases are essential. They also come in packs of two or four so that you can be sure the entire family is covered.
We have an older version of this Tommy Bahama Beach Cart and it’s one of our most essential beach accessories. We cram a crazy amount of beach gear into this cart and also love the built in cooler for drinks and snacks. There’s even a slot on the side that holds a beach umbrella and the large wheels make this cart easy to push across the sand.
I love that this beach tote has a built in cooler as well as a waterproof cellphone case! Plus, it’s fairly big so you can pack in a good amount of beach gear.
I’m not sure my husband would want me to choose the pink one but this pop up cabana is the perfect way to escape the sun when it starts beating down.
If you just want something small to keep the little ones out of the sun, this pop up sun shade for toddlers is perfect. How cool is it that you can fill it with water to create a mini pool for them to play in? This is one piece of beach equipment my girls would have loved!
This beach chair with canopy is perfect for when I want to keep my face shaded but still want to get a little sun on the rest of my. Plus it comes with a handy cellphone pouch and drink holder.
Having trouble lugging all that gear back and forth to the beach? This cool backpack chair makes it easy! Plus, it even has a pouch to carry extra items and a drink holder too!
If you already have a chair but just want a little extra protection from the sun, this clip on umbrella is perfect. I love that I can just move it around as the sun shifts!
Beach Toys For Kids
I don’t know who would have more fun with this sailing ship kite, me or the kids! This is one of the coolest beach toys I’ve seen.
We recently bought one of these catch and toss velcro games and I’d forgotten how much fun they were. I love that my six year old can play it as easily as we can (sometimes better) and it’s one of the best beach toys you can bring!
Of all the toys I’ve seen, I think this Handtrux sand digger is one of the coolest beach toys for kids. I know my girls would love them and they’d sure make building those sand castles a lot easier!
Cool Beach Gadgets
There’s no place to plug in your phone at the beach but you need to keep it charged for posting all those Facebook photos and Instastories, right? This solar phone charger from Everything Tech Gear uses the power of the sun…what more do you need. I think this might actually be one of the most important beach gadgets of all!This umbrella hook is a cool beach gadget that you attach to your beach umbrella. Then you can hang your towels, sunglasses, camera and more to keep them off the sand.
I hate having to keep one eye on my valuables when we’re splashing around in the water. This portable safe is a piece of beach gear that I can’t live without. It clips on to your chair or umbrella to keep phones, money, keys and other valuables safe. Don’t let the picture fool you…it’s bigger than it looks.
One of our biggest beach must haves is a waterproof bluetooth speaker. We can’t possibly lounge on the beach without some Jimmy Buffet playing in the background!
I seriously want one of these for our pool but it’s perfect for the beach too. Just inflate, add a few bags of ice and you have a fun palm tree cooler to keep drinks and snacks chilled and easy to get to.
A beach chair AND a cooler? It doesn’t get much easier than this crafty coolerpack beach chair.
There’s nothing worse than having your towel fall down every time you shift in your beach chair. These margarita beach towel holders are beach must haves for keeping those towels in place.
A cooler with a built in blender? This may just be my favorite of all the beach gear! Throw in some margarita mix and crank up the Jimmy Buffet and you’ll have the perfect beach day!
Who doesn’t love fun beach gadgets? This Chill Puck fits on the bottom of any canned drink to keep it cool to the end. I haven’t personally tried it yet but it’s definitely on my wish list!
