What’s In My Beach Bag? My Top Beach Essentials To Bring On Your Vacation!

travel blogger beach essentials

Obviously if you follow the #vgbsquad on instagram you know we had a blast in Gulf Shores this past weekend!  It was perfect! I am an over packer. There I said it.  #sorrynotsorry I am not ashamed.  I actually learned from my dad to always overpack.  He is known for bringing everything.  They call him Mr.Prepared.  So I’ve sort of inherited that trait.  Of course I only pack “what I need” but girl if I think I’m going to need it, I bring it!  Especially for road trips.  It’s the worst feeling to need something and not have it but I’ve never once said, “man I wish I didn’t bring that.”  You know?!  There are a few things when traveling to the beach that are a MUST!

So I’m happy to share my top beach essentials!

Sunglasses + Strap

Protect those eyes girl. And get you a cute little sunglasses strap to keep those bad boys from floating away in the ocean while you’re at it.  Mine is by Lilly Pulitzer.  It helps if they are bright and float!

Beach Towel

I am not using some random beach towel here. I bring my own.  The round ones are my favorite and they have some weight to them so they stay put on the beach and there is enough room to share!
