Beach essentials are crucial for an enjoyable experience. To make sure you have everything for the sand and saltwater, I created a list of must-haves for the next time you end up beach hopping.

The Beach People is an Australian brand specializing in luxe beach essentials. Their famous round towel is my favorite towel to lounge on, made for two and great for traveling. It is a luxury towel that is big enough for all your beach needs, it is super easy to pack along. And it also makes for an awesome photo prop. If the round isn’t your thing, check out their travel towels.

Also sold by The Beach People is its cute leather towel carrier. It is a super-easy way to transport a towel, esp if it’s wet and sandy.
LACK OF COLOR HAT
Something about Australian brands gets me every time. One I just can’t get enough of is the hat brand Lack of Color. The luxury label focuses on unique hats for both men and women, emphasizing the ability to stay on trend with any style of hat. Their classic Rancher hats are my go-to beachwear of choice.
KIEHL’S ULTRA FACE CREAM SPF 30
Kiehl’s is my go-to for a lot of my cosmetic needs, the high-quality product never lets me down. Their sunscreen is top of the line, with its extra boost of moisture and essential oils your skin will feel fresh and healthy without the negative effects from the sun.
SALT & STONE SPF
Another go-to sunscreen of mine is the Salt & Stone line. Their products are top of the line and mineral-based. Although more expensive than your average sunscreen, I swear by their Face Stick sunscreen.
boscia SKIN PERFECTING BB CREAM SPF
Hybrid of makeup, skincare, and protectant against the sun, pollutants and blue light. It is light and adds an even tint to every skin tone making it the perfect coverage, minimizing pores and maximizing flawless complexion. SPF 30.
OUAI HAIR OIL
I am obsessed with this product, it hydrates and protects hair from the sun, saltwater and chlorine. Unlike most hair oils, this one leaves your hair silky and shiny without making it look greasy or clumped.
PLAYA ENDLESS SUMMER SPRAY
For a nice beach wave tousle, this beach spray is my go-to. Most texture spray I’ve used in the past left my hair feeling sticky. This spray is the opposite, it gives you the wave you want without feeling like you have the product in your hair.
SUPERGOOP! POOF PART PROTECTOR
I am notorious for sunburning the crap out of my scalp. Not only is it nearly impossible to touch without searing pain, give it two weeks and your head will be peeling like crazy. This product saved my life from aftersun trauma, the SPF45 powder is made for your hair and scalp with full protection from the sun.
TANGLE TEEZERS ON THE GO METALLIC BRUSH
COOLA ORGANIC AFTER-SUN LOTION
LUNA BRONZE ECLIPSE TANNING MOUSSE
LANO LIPS COCONUTTER 101 OINTMENT
THISTLE FARMS NATURAL BUG SPRAY
SPHYNX PORTABLE RAZOR
There’s nothing worse than showing up to the beach and noticing a missed spot of hair on your legs or bikini line. Sphynx is a pocket-size razor made for last-minute grooming needs. Don’t worry about shaving dry, this Lil thing comes with a spray and moisturizer for a smooth shave. Just turn the center dial.
BIOCOL LABS SOMETHING FOR BLOATED TUMS
We’ve all been there, that bummer of a moment when we put on a swimsuit and feel like a total bloat. To ensure I avoid feeling that way, I always make sure these pills are in my suitcase.
SUNNYLIFE BEACH PADDLE SET
I can’t do more than 20 minutes of just laying on the beach so this simple game is something I can’t recommend enough. While in Portugal our group of 4 took this game to the beach for the afternoon and couldn’t set it down. Great for groups and perfect for pairs. If you’re like me and prefer some activity at the beach and could use an excuse to workout, pick up one of these.
BEACH BOMB WATERPROOF BLUETOOTH SPEAKER
It’s obvious a speaker is necessary for days by the pool or on the beach. I swear by this speaker, with its quality sound and battery life it’s perfect for sun up to sun down day out and about.
