Beach Essentials for Families Who Love Sand & Surf
Summer means beach days (or pool days if you can’t make it to the sand). And there’s nothing kiddos love more than playing in the water, making sand castles, and having a picnic. But if you think you can just grab a bathing suit and a towel and head to the beach, think again. We’ve compiled a list of essentials to ensure you and your family have the best time ever, with surf and sand in total comfort all day along.
What’s a beach bat? It’s kind of like a tennis racquet, but way cooler! Made in Rio de Janeiro, Frescobol Carioca’s boffo beach bats are individually handcrafted by skilled marceneiros with several layers of wood off-cuts and covered with a strong resin coating, to make them sea and sand-resistant. All bats are unique in color, shape, details and weight and finished with a comfortable neoprene grip...not to mention beautifully retro-cool. Each bat set comes with 2 bats, 2 balls and a water resistant drawstring pouch.
Curl up or stretch out on the Wategos Roundie towel by The Beach People. It is unique, beautiful and perfectly sized in diameter for you and your family to enjoy. It's the ultimate companion for beach days, pool parties and just lying about. The Wategos is designed in Australia and is made from super soft cotton. It has a plush velour top for comfortable lounging and a terry reverse side to quickly absorb water.
The Jute Burlap “Sandbag” Beach Bag boasts big compartments and is handmade to order. It’s made of nautical rope, cotton, burlap, cream and natural canvas and doubles as a farmer’s market tote. The Sandbag was designed to prevent sand from sneaking into your beach bag and ending up on your floor at home. The top is made from traditional canvas, and the bottom is made from burlap which lets the infiltrating sand fall right out the bottom and back to the beach where it belongs. Very smart!
Let the good tunes roll without any worry about getting your tech sandy, salty, and sunblock-y. Just tuck your MP3 player inside this Sunny Life water-resistant AM/FM speaker box for your stress-free listening pleasure.
Whether one-piece or bikini, these sweet suits are sure to please your daughter. Fully-lined and buttery soft, these swimsuits are perfect for all kinds of beach activities from wading to lounging. Minnow makes trunks for boys too, and they are no less awesome – we love the minimalist, classic styling and color schemes.

Could this straw beach bonnet be any cuter? Perfect for girls or toddlers, this stylish chapeau has a neck strap to prevent it from peeling off in the wind while the wide brim protects your mini-me from the sun’s rays. The tassels and pompoms add panache!
No more twisted ankles thanks to flip-flops in deep sand! These Pons for Kids are great for boys and girls hunting for seashells. Easy to slip on and available in classic colors that go with everything, these pint-sized Avarcas are handmade in Menorca with high quality butter-soft leather, and have a lightweight rubber sole that provides comfort and durability.
