Tempt Me Women Two Piece Off Shoulder High Waist Bikini Set


Stocking up on swimsuits are a must for any beach vacation. While price is important, don’t forget that you want a swimsuit that can last more than a couple of wears—especially when exposed to saltwater or chlorine. Similarly, you want something comfortable that won’t ride up in unpleasant areas. 

A style that’s universally flattering, like this best-selling Tempt Me Two-Piece Ruffled Swimsuit, is a must-have for your swimsuit collection. It has over 13,000 five-star ratings and sizes range from XX-Small to 24-Plus. Meanwhile, guys will like these stylish quick-dry swim trunks that are a steal this weekend at 50 percent off. 

Water-Resistant Shoes and Sandals

Columbia Men's Bahama Vent PFG Boat Shoe


Depending on where you’re headed, soft, silky sand might not be in your future. Whether you’re planning on visiting a beach with rockier sand, or walking a gravely pathway to the beach, no one wants to step on sharp objects. Protect your feet with either sandals, boat shoes, or water shoes. 

For the practical set, this unisex water shoe is equal parts stylish and functional, and if you’re traveling light, then a good day-to-night shoe like this Columbia boat shoe is perfect and designed to repel dirt and liquids, and the popular Reef Women’s Cushion Breeze Flip Flops are at their lowest price in 30 days.

Beach Bags and Coolers

Everlasting Comfort Beach Cooler Backpack Insulated Leak Proof


Unless you enjoy paying for overpriced food and drinks at the beach, it’s always a good idea to bring a cooler to stash snacks and keep icy drinks cool. Even if you plan on having lunch or dinner at the beach, a good tote bag or cooler will keep you from having to run back to the boardwalk or food stands every few minutes when someone in your group gets thirsty or hungry.  If you want a cooler, but don’t want to drag something through the sand, this Everlasting Comfort Beach Cooler Backpack is a smart upgrade and only $33 right now.

Beach Chairs

KingCamp Low Sling Beach Chairs,Folding High Mesh Reclining Back Chair for Adults with Headrest


Similar to the logic behind bringing snacks and drinks, if you’re visiting a beach or waterfront near your home, renting chairs isn’t the best use of your money. Thankfully, portable chairs have been a thing for quite some time, many of which are designed to be carried like backpacks for easy transport. 

For the ultimate in comfort, the Best Choice Folding Lounge Chair comes with a built-in accessory tray and adjustable canopy shade. Shoppers also love the ultra portable King Camp Low Sling Beach Chair that comes with its own carrying tote. If you prefer a backpack chair, Tommy Bahama is the classic go-to — and it’s majorly discounted this weekend.

Tents and Umbrellas

WolfWise UPF 50+ Easy Pop Up Beach Tent


Beach days are, by default, long since you want to spend as much time outside as possible. However, that also means spending a lot of time in direct sunlight — which we all know is bad for us. A good tent or umbrella is a must to keep you comfortable instead of sunburned and sweaty. 

Upgrade your shelter with this pop-up beach tent from WolfWise that features UPF 50+ material for added protection. Alternatively, this slanted beach umbrella comes with stakes for added security and also offers UPF 50+ protection.

Beach Toys

Qrooper Kids Toys Toss and Catch Game Set


While you can spend all day lounging at the beach, if you’re also bringing kids, that’s not going to be so simply. You need to keep them occupied with travel-friendly toys or accessories that can handle sand and water exposure. Sporting goods, bubble makers, and sand castle toys are all good examples of beach-friendly gear that makes the cut. 

This Qrooper Toss and Catch Gamer slides into beach bags for quick storage and is easy to wipe clean after sand exposure. For the little builders, this 18-piece beach toy set has everything you need to make sand castles and comes with a mesh storage tote, and a beach trip isn’t complete if you don’t have a good generously-sized blanket to lay down on, like this sand-resistant option from Bydoll.
