Australia is home to many of the world’s most iconic beaches. It’s no wonder many locals and tourists spend their time at the shorelines during a hot day. If you’re planning to do the same, it’s important to bring some essentials for your fun in the sand.
Buy a trendy beach bag that’s big enough for everything you’ll bring. Make sure that there’s an extra space, too. Clothes, towels, and blankets that get wet become bulky and heavy, so you might not fit them all by the time you decide to go home. Look for beach bags that are made of waterproof materials, like weave bags or those made of canvas.
The sand can get too hot, especially during the afternoon. It’s not a good idea to lie down and get a tan unless there’s a layer of protection. Choose a thick fabric and if possible, buy those that come with travel bags to make packing easier.
Bring a sunscreen to protect the skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. This way, you won’t suffer from sunburn caused by UVB or long-term skin conditions due to UVA. The sun protection factor (SPF) number, ranging from two to 70,depends on how long you’re planning to stay under the sun.Be sure to read the label before buying to give you the best sun protection.
Protect the eyes by bringing a pair of sunglasses that blocks at least 90% of UVA and UVB rays. The tint (darkness) and colour doesn’t matter because these have nothing to do with the blocking properties of sunglasses. Ask the staff or read the specifications carefully before buying.
Bring a durable beach bags so you can stuff in all your things –blankets, sunscreens, and sunglasses. But be careful not to carry too many items that might take your attention off the beach fun. Leave your laptops and big gadgets at home. Just bring your phone or small camera if you want to get some snap shots.
