Today, we'll dive into a checklist of 12 must-have items for the beach in 2023. Because if anyone is an expert with what to bring to the beach, it's Suniela

1. Sun Protection

Sun protection should be at the top of your list when preparing for a day at the beach. Sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats are essential to protecting your skin and eyes from the harmful UV rays.

Make sure to bring sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and apply it frequently throughout the day.

Sun tans = cool.

Sun burns = dangerous. 

2. Beach Towels, Throws & Mats

The more you beach, the more you realize: you can never have too many towels. 

Bring extra beach towels, a throw, or mats to lay on or to dry off after swimming. Plus, throws are essentially like adding a thin carpet to your cozy set-up -- accessorize!

Suniela has a hefty collection of throws and mats, perfect to relax. They are all lightweight and soft, making it the perfect complement to your Suniela cabana.

3. Beach Canopy 

Speaking of Suniela cabanas, these handy, portable, and durable beach canopies are the perfect item to bring to the beach in 2024. 

Sunielas can be set up in less than two minutes, weigh less than four pounds, and are assembled at a spacious 31 ft². 

How handy is it to be able to carry around 31 ft² in your suitcase? Come on...

4. Beach Bag

A beach bag is necessary to carry all your beach essentials. Look for a bag with plenty of pockets and compartments to keep things organized. 

All Suniela canopies come with its own bag. It's as simple as flinging it over your shoulder and hitting the beach.  

5. Beach Chairs

Beach chairs provide a comfortable place to sit and relax on the sand.

Look for chairs that are lightweight and foldable for easy transportation. And yes, they can fit inside your Suniela. 

6. Snacks and Water

Pack plenty of snacks and water to stay hydrated and energized throughout the day. Consider packing fruit, granola bars, and sandwiches. Suniela's beach bags come with a handy built-in pocket to keep your snacks and drinks all in one place (and out of the sand). 

7. Beach Games

Beach games are a fun way to pass the time and stay active at the beach.

Consider packing a frisbee, beach volleyball, or paddleball. Heck, you might even make a few friends...

8. Beach Toys

If you're bringing kids to the beach, beach toys are a must. Buckets, shovels, and sandcastle molds are great options. 

9. First Aid Kit

A first aid kit is always a good idea when travelling. Be sure to include items such as band-aids, antiseptic, and pain relievers. 

10. Waterproof Phone Case

A waterproof phone case is another essential item to bring to the beach in 2023. With the increasing reliance on smartphones, it's important to protect them from water, sand, and other potential hazards.

There are many waterproof phone cases available on the market, ranging from basic models to more advanced ones that offer additional features like shock resistance and UV protection.

Suniela's built-in pockets are coming in pretty handy right about now, huh?

11. Portable Bluetooth Speaker

A portable Bluetooth speaker is a great way to enjoy music while relaxing on the beach. Many of these speakers are designed to be water-resistant or waterproof, so you don't have to worry about damage from water or sand.

They also offer high-quality sound and can connect wirelessly to your phone or other devices.

12. A Good Book

Finally, don't forget to bring a good book to the beach in 2024. Whether you're into fiction, non-fiction, or something in between, reading is a great way to relax and unwind while enjoying the ocean breeze and the sound of the waves.

Keep your phone tucked away into the built-in pocket and lose yourself in a good book -- remember those things?

In conclusion, with a little planning and preparation, you can enjoy a perfect day at the beach in 2024. Remember to bring the essential items like a beach shade, sunscreen, beach towels, a cooler with snacks and drinks, and a good book.

Also, consider bringing some fun accessories like a waterproof phone case, a portable Bluetooth speaker, and a beach cabana to enhance your experience. With these items, you can create a comfortable, safe, and enjoyable beach day that you'll remember for years to come.
