Cute Flip Flops
It’s just not a day at the beach without a pair of awesome flip-flops! These cost slightly more than an ice cream cone, and you don’t have to worry about ruining them with water. Women’s Classic Flip-Flops, oldnavy.com
Massive Beach Towel
Save the day for anyone who forgets a towel by bringing a huge one to share! You’ll be able to fit at least three friends (or one special crush) on top of this 36” x 72” monster. The Big One Chevron Beach Towel, kohls.com
This one’s sort of a no brainer—if you’re going to be out in the sun all day, you need to apply (and reapply!) SPF. If you still want a little color, don’t skimp on the sun protection by going for a lower SPF. This SPF 50 contains coffee-infused bronzers to give you a natural-looking glow without scorching your skin. Australian Gold SPF Lotion with Kona Coffee Bronzers, australiangold.com
Lip Balm With SPF
Sunburnt lips can be so painful! Prevent blisters and chapping with a pretty, tinted balm that has SPF—we love the slightly peachy tint of this one. e.l.f. Studio Lip Balm SPF 15, eyeslipsface.com
