Finally you’re on vacation and the beach beckons. Life is good, the sun is shining, work is a distant memory and you’ve just bought the perfect bikini! It’s time to gather up the girlfriends and pack a beach bag for the day. Every woman knows that a trip to the beach requires a swimsuit and sunscreen but there are a few more must-have essentials needed for some quality fun in the sun. Girl’s Getaway has made up a list of what we consider to be our top five items to bring on your next girlfriend getaway in the sun and sand.
1. Get Your Groove On – Best Tunes for a Perfect Day at the Beach
Load up your iPod or smart phone with music perfect for a day at the beach, in addition to golden oldies like Under the Boardwalk by the Drifters or Sarfari’s Wipeout we’ve found some more recent summertime tunes to add to your list.
You ‘Da One – Rhianna
Folding Chair – Regina Spektor
California Gurls – Katie Perry
Tennis Court – Lorde
Good Time – Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen
2. Water Proof Pouch for Your Phone
Yes, bring your iPod or Smart Phone to the beach without any worries about getting sand or water damage. This neat little item from Dry Pak will allow you to make calls, listen to your fav tunes without have to take your ‘precious’ out of the pouch. Bonus!
3. Summertime Reading at the Beach
Nothing serious please! Let’s face it, nothing beats lounging in a beach chair with the latest trashy book, but since there’s no Twilight book release scheduled in the near future, we picked a few other delicious summer reads to help while away the afternoon.
4. The Perfect Beach Hat
Our definition of the perfect beach hat: Big enough to shade and big on style, but small enough to stick in a bag.
5. Up Your Beach Style with a Beach Cover-Up
This beach cover-up is our ‘must-have’ style choice for a day at the beach. It’s so sexy, so cool, and too cute!
