In a few short weeks my family is packing up and heading to San Diego for a week of fun in the sun. I can’t wait! But as I am preparing my packing list, I thought I would share with you what I bring in my beach bag – perfect for a day at the beach or waterpark.

When packing for a day at the beach, I like to bring only the bare necessities. I refuse to carry endless bags and coolers - everything we bring must fit into one bag. No need for a bucket of toys, several magazines or electronics. Just enjoy the sunshine and beach with your family and friends! Packing these minimal beach bag must-haves for your beach escape is essential:

  • Beach towel
  • Sunscreen
  • Baby Powder - helps get sand off quickly and easily
  • Water
  • Snacks
  • Phone – In a freezer bag to protect it from water and sand
