5 Beach Tips For Those Who Don’t Like Sand

Updated on July 30, 2018

Gen Q is an avid lover of travel but terribly picky about it. Traveling to accommodate needs for niche problems, likings, and tastes.

Take Talcum Powder to Keep Sand Off Your Feet

For some reason, talcum powder really helps! It may not keep ALL the sand off your feet 100% but it does make it really easy to simply dust off your feet or shake the sand off. I’ve personally used talcum powder and rub it over onto my ankles. A tip would be to make sure to get it in between the toes where sweat or humidity will reside. The giant disclaimer here, because some people might not realize, is that this will NOT work if you get into the water or get your feet wet.


Put Your Bags on a Boogie Board to Keep Sand Away

Assuming that you don’t like sand on your body, you surely don’t want all that sand on your bags and belongings. If you don’t want to put anything on the ground one might use a straw beach mat, but if you don't have one of those, a good second is the boogie board. It matches the setting and if kept dry, sand won't stick! Just keep the boogie board close and put your bags and coolers closer to the center or even it out on both sides to keep it from tipping over.


Bring an Extra Tiny Towel

If you got into the water, you always make sure to have your big towel to dry off and absorb all that water, salt, and sand. The problem is, now that you’ve used it once, you can’t use it again. How are you supposed to dust off or try to remove more sand? If there aren't showers to wash any away, or perhaps there is still some salts and sand that are just sticking around, having a small extra hand towel is for you. Kept dry you and wipe off the sand and then shake out the small towel to make sure there isn't any sand when you wipe again. I will add that this isn't to dry off, it’s simply to help remove left over sand or sand that hardened on your skin.

Use Tall Beach Chairs

Many advertisements and normal folk like to use low beach chairs. It helps the legs stretch out over the sand and it’s easier to reach that cooler for drinks. But the closer you are to the ground, the more likely you’ll get sand kicked up by the people around you or from your own movement. Taller beach chairs make it easier to avoid kicked up or blow around sand from your lap and more on your feet and legs.


Get Lonely

I don’t mean completely alone, that's impossible on a public beach (lucky for all those private beachgoers). Rather try to find a more open space. There will always be people but if you can find a section where there is a large circumference of an empty area it will be more helpful. It will also help if you sit closer to adults or tanners. They are less likely to get up, kick up sand, or disturb the area. Being near kids means running around, disobedient sand throwers, and more water. Having some space between you and other beachgoers helps keep flying sand farther away and where sand belongs...the ground.

Do you mind sand?
