A girls day at the beach was much-needed. We left the boys behind and took day trip to Cocoa Beach for some fun in the sun. What better way to relax than to jump in the ocean and sunbathe under the Florida sun? Not much could beat this. So we packed up a few essentials, got our swim suits on, and drove to the ocean.
Here’s how you can plan a perfect girls day at the beach:
What Items to Bring:
Sunscreen: Bring two different types (SPF 30 and SPF 15 Tanning oil).
Beach Coverup: If you’re going to stroll the beach or hit up a close restaurant bring a cute coverup!
Music: Pack a small portable stereo with bluetooth speakers so everyone can listen while they tan.
Hat: If you’re at the beach all day bring a hat for some shade.
Towels: Essential. Helpful for when you’re getting out of the ocean and for sunbathing on. Don’t forget these!
Camera: I love making memories and creating new experiences with my cousins.
What Snacks to Pack:
Fruit: I do love me fresh fruit! Raspberries, bananas, and apples are great snacks for the beach.
Nuts: Nuts are easy enough to pack for the beach and they’ll give to lots or protein and vitamins.
Chips: For a treat chips are a fun snack for all to share.
Water: You should most definitely stay hydrated at the beach, so bring a few bottles of water.
Sandwiches: For lunch, dinner, or even a snack, sandwiches are easy to create and share.
Granola Bars: Granola bars are the ultimate snack. To curb hungry pack a few different ones and keep them on hand.
Lemonade: Lemonade always reminds me of long summer days, it’s the perfect drink.
What to Do:
Volleyball/ Frisbee: Get active with your girls and toss a frisbee or play volleyball. They’re total beach activities!
Boogie Board: If you’re never boogie boarded you need to try. It’s the most fun I’ve had in the ocean.
Go for a swim: Take it easy and go for a swim. It’s the ocean after all!
Tan: For some Vitamin D, lay out a towel, sunbathe with your girls and just relax.
Have an amazing day at the beach with your girls. Let go of your stress and take some time for yourself, you deserve it after all.
