If you still haven’t taken your summer beach vacation and you’re worried that you won’t be properly outfitted, we’re here to help. This list of cool beach accessories will ensure you hit the sand in style and comfort. Here’s our list of some awesome beach accessories that you should definitely add to your tote bag.
CGear Sand-Free Beach Mat
Sometimes the worst part about hanging out all day on a sandy beach is the sand! It has a way of getting all over everything. This revolutionary mat from CGear is constructed with dual-weave materials so that dirt, sand, and dust stay off the surface.
Olympus Tough TG-5
Smartphones have definitely made capturing photos at the beach much easier, but even the best smartphone won’t do you much good if you drop it on the rocks at the jetty or, worse yet, straight into the water! This waterproof digital camera is built to take some serious abuse. It’s waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof, so it’s a perfect option to take to the beach. Plus, the 12-megapixels, 4x zoom, and Wi-Fi makes taking and uploading amazing photos a cinch.
Hover Camera Passport
As good as a digital camera is, the beach is the kind of place that’s begging for some awesome aerial photography. Thanks to modern technology, it’s easier than ever to capture the most epic selfies ever to hit social media! The Hover Camera Passport from Zero Zero Robotics features a 13-megapixel camera capable of capturing 4K videos.
Bondi Beach Tent
A beach umbrella will work in a pinch, but if you’re looking for some serious sun protection that’s easy to set up, the Bondi Beach Tent is a perfect choice. The tent boasts a sun protection factor of 40, but what really makes this tent great for the beach is the A-frame design, which will allow maximum airflow, even on the hottest days on the sand. Plus, it looks stylish, too!
This is the big item on our list, but it’s totally worth it! The Crystal Explorer Kayak is 100% see-through, so you can paddle out over reefs, around piers, and countless other underwater environments and see the structures and the animals that call them home like never before. Plus, the kayak has a removable frame and seat, and the chambers are inflatable so it’s incredibly easy to store and transport.
