1. DIY Beach Towel Blanket
If you’re a beach lounger rather than a swimmer, then you’ll absolutely love this towel blanket with a pillow. It’s perfect for reading and lounging on the beach. It doesn’t require too much sewing skill to put together, so it’s also a great beginner’s project.
2. Fitted Sheet Sand-Free Lounging Space
There are all kinds of great hacks, but this has got to be the simplest one of all. To get a sand-free lounging or picnic space, simply take a fitted sheet with you, place a heavy item in each corner (like a beach bag or cooler), and pull the corners up over them. Viola, No more sand in your sandwiches!
3. Sunscreen Bottle Valuables Holder
If you’re running around after kids, trying to have a bit of fun yourself, and making sure that everyone is safe, you don’t need the added hassle of trying to keep track of your stuff. To avoid your valuables becoming easy pickings, stash them in the least obvious place — your sunscreen bottle!
4. ChapStick Money Holder
This beach hack is actually also a great travel hack, especially if you’re going somewhere a little unfamiliar. Make sure you always have cash on you by keeping a few dollars rolled up in an empty ChapStick tube — no one will ever guess!
5. Homemade Sunshade
Ever tried to take an umbrella to the beach? It’s a tight fit in pretty much any car! This Homemade Sunshade folds up really small, so it’s way easier to fit into your boot than a giant beach umbrella.
6. Talcum Powder Sand Remover
Tired of beach feet trailing sand into your car? This beach hack is definitely good to know. Just rub talcum powder over the sandy area, and the grains of sand will dry out and fall straight off.
7. Mesh Bag Toy Storage
If you have young kids with lots of beach toys, then this is an excellent tip. Just buy a mesh bag to store the toys both at the beach and in the car, and just shake it out before leaving the beach. No more bags full of beach sand!
8. Aloe Vera Ice Cubes
We all know that protecting ourselves from the sun is of paramount importance, but sometimes, somehow, we manage to get sunburnt every now and again. For those times, these Aloe Vera Ice Cubes are just what you need — cooling, healing and soothing.
9. Freeze Your Drinks
If you’re taking a picnic for your day at the beach, be clever and freeze your drinks the night before. When you pack your cooler, there’s no need to add an ice pack, as the drinks will keep everything cool and will be ice-cold and ready to drink when you arrive.
10. Waterproof Your Phone
This is definitely a short-term beach hack, but it works. If you’re worried about your phone getting wet at the beach, just pop it into a resealable plastic bag — the touchscreen will work through the plastic and it also helps keep out the sand.
11. Pocketed Beach Towels
If you really want to relax at the beach, then these Pocketed Beach Towels are the hack you need. Just take an oversized beach towel and sew pockets into the bottom to store books, sunglasses, or anything else you want easy access to (much simpler than it sounds). No more rummaging in giant beach bags, hunting down now-crumpled books, headphones, or sunscreen — they’re all right there.
12. Kid’s Beach Pool
Setting up a Kid’s Beach Pool is a great idea. This way, little kids can play safely and have fun while you relax a little.
13. Homemade Sunscreen
If you’re worried about the chemicals in your sunscreen, why not try making your own? The recipe is much simpler than you’d think.
14. Outdoor Drink Holders
These outdoor drink holders would be great for the beach, as well as for picnics, as they keep your drinks stable and out of the way. You can change the fabric decoration up to suit your style, making them perfect for a beach party.
15. Beach Vacation Kit
Beach vacations are super fun, but they can also get a little bit difficult, as cuts, bruises, and other little injuries are common, and you don’t necessarily have the tools to deal with them like you normally would. I love the idea of this beach vacation kit — it will definitely make holidays less painful.
16. Beach Games
Beach games are a great way to make a day at the beach even more fun than it already is (which is pretty darn fun, if I say so myself!). Beach bowling, cup castle, and beach blow all sound like an absolute blast!
17. DIY Duct Tape Beach Bag
Colorful duct tape has really made hacks a whole lot brighter — this Duct Tape Beach Bag is a prime example. It’s great because it’s waterproof and quick to make, but looks super stylish.
