5 Products for Camping on the Beach in Style
Summer is here, I’ve got my cute swimsuits packed and I’m ready for a camping trip to the beach!! To make the most of your trip, whether you’re staying by the ocean or at a music festival, here are some awesome products and tips that’ll help you camp on the beach in style!
Beach Chair – $20 from Fab
Ever wanted to sit back and relax on the beach without having to lug along beach chairs? The beach chair is awesome because you can just stick it into the sand or grass to create a makeshift chair. It doesn’t hurt that it’s flat, light-weight and can store nicely in the back of the trunk.
Beach Tacs – $20
Whenever I go to the beach I always have to put my belongings on each corner of my towel so it doesn’t fly away and mess up my tanning. Pound down a post under each corner, use the disks to secure the towels on top of the posts, and add the cup if you want to keep a drink from tipping over in the sand. It’s easy to use and comes in handy for those windy days at the ocean.
Kangaroo Water Bottle – $13 by Contigo
Use the Kangaroo Water Bottle to store your money and keys in an unexpected place. Now you won’t have to pack in a plastic bag or hide them in your underwear.
Silicone Wine Glass – $20 by Spruce
Want to drink a little fancier even while camping? Get a little boozed up from a wine glass that won’t break on you. While being reusable and dishwasher safe, they are also BPA-free and hypoallergenic.
Mini Pink Galvanized Steel Bucket Grill – $14 by Cost Plus
No place for a bonfire on the beach? Bring along your own portable grill for some delicious hobo dinners and s’mores. It’s also useful for when the campfire grills are dirty from previous campers.
Some Camping and Beach Bum Tips!
Use Lint as a Fire Starter – Lint lights up quickly and is something that is easily collectible from the clothes dryer. Keep it in a plastic baggy until the next time you go camping. I like to stick it into toilet paper cardboard rolls and wrap it in newspaper to create an even better fire starter.
Milk Jugs are Great Lanterns – If you have a headlamp, cut out a whole in an empty milk jug and wrap the headlamp around it with the light facing in. The opaqueness of the milk jug diffuses the light so you can see all over the place instead of just in front of you. If you don’t have a headlamp, you can also insert a small flashlight or glow-in-the-dark stick in the milk jug too.
Baby Powder gets Sand Off – When you have sand stuck to your hands and body, dump some baby powder onto them to help remove it safely and easily.
