Beach Bag Essentials: Everything You Need for Some Fun in the Sun

Summer is here and it’s time for some fun in the sun. Here are our tips when it comes to your beach bag essentials for a day at the beach or pool.

Always Wear Your Sunscreen

Rule number one of going to the beach is to make sure you have enough sunscreen. Applying once and thinking that is enough, well...we’ve all been there. The Clarity Pouch Large is a large clear cosmetic case, perfect for all of your sunshine must-haves, especially your endless bottles of sunscreen. We love Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen for face and Coola Classic Sunscreen spray for body.  The Clarity Pouch Large has enough room for all of your beach must-haves

What About the Rest?

Yes, it’s true. Most of us can’t go to the beach with just sunscreen and a towel. There are so many other beach bag essentials to consider, like a book, headphones, and all those small items that usually get sandy at the bottom of your bag. Keep your small beach must-haves neat and tidy in a Clarity Pouch Small. Items like your keys, hand sanitizer, and lip balm should all live in a small clear makeup bag to protect them from the sand and keep them in one place. Plus, you’ll be able to see everything without having to search for it.

What to Bring to the Beach?

Don’t want to forget anything? Don’t worry, Truffle has you covered. Here are some of our beach must-haves for a fun day in the sun:

  1. Beach towel (we love these Turkish towels on Amazon)
  2. Sunnies (fresh Ray Bans of course)
  3. Sunscreen (our faves above)
  4. A book or kindle (our latest summer read: Kristin Hannah’s The Four Winds)
  5. Headphones (these are worth the splurge)
  6. Reusable water bottle (a long time favorite)
  7. A trendy beach chair (we might try one of these)
  8. A full coverage beach hat (we’ve been eyeing this one by Janessa Leone)


No matter what you bring to the beach, don’t forget to stay safe and stay hydrated...and have fun! Happy truffling.
