With summer arising just next week and beach vacations just around the corner, everyone needs to have a beach essential checklist.

I put together a few things every person should have in their beach bag for that perfect beach day!

1. A fabulous bathing suit
The bathing suit below is Trina Turk’s Mod Maze Halter One Piece. Available online for $134.

2. Flops to protect your feet from the hot sand
Our top choice are Rainbow Sandals. Available for men, women and children!
These are the perfect sandals to slide on and off at the beach. They can withstand water, sand, and the hot sun which means they will last for years!

3. Sunglasses
Important for protecting your eyes from the sun and reducing the glare on your book or camera.

4. High SPF Sun screen with a separate sun block for your face
A tan looks good but how long does it last? Wrinkles and even worse, skin cancer are long term. Be sensible, use a high factor and avoid the midday sun.

5. A good book
The Vacationers by Emma Straub is $10.99 for your Kindle.
This is a story of the sides of ourselves that we choose to show and those we try to conceal, of the ways we tear each other down and build each other up again, and the bonds that ultimately hold us together.

6. Camera
Great for capturing those amazing memories you will make

7. Beach Towel (you can never have too many)
This towel from Target is only $14.99 and we love the fact that it’s extra long!

8. Snacks
Fruit such as grapes and berries are my favorite. They are low maintenance and very portable.

9. iPod
The sound of waves crashing and your favorite song make for the perfect beach day. And be sure to grab a waterproof speaker before heading out.

10. A beach tote to help carry all of these essentials to the beach
How cute is this Essential Storage Tote from Thirty-One?! Available online for only $28.
