Beach Bag Necessities

Whether you live in the tropics, south of the equator, or are planning to Holiday in the Caribbean you will need to pack your beach bag. This hub is designed to help you efficiently pack your beach bag for safe fun in the sun. It will not take a great deal of time or money and it will be the difference between an awful day at the beach or a day in paradise.

First back baby oil. Baby oil is no longer used t tan but instead to get tar off your feet in the event you step in tar.

Second, Sun Screen any SPF. Actually SPF is a marketing tool. If you can just get sun screen that will keep you from burning and you will have a really good day. Remember to reapply every 45 minutes.

Third pack a hat,t-shirt and sun glasses. Your body will only be able to tolerate a few hours of sun and then it will be time to cover up.

Fourth, you will need water to hydrate at the beach. It is important to always stay well hydrated in heat.

Fifth, pack a vial of vinegar. Vinegar treats manowar stings. The acid neutralizes the stings and takes the pain away,

Sixth, pack zinc oxide. Zinc Oxide is cheap and it used very effectively to treat burns. If you get burnt zinc oxide is the first and best treatment you have for relief.

      Hi debbie roberts,

      My son is more than 1/2 English and while he doesn't burn he is as white as Casper the Ghost so I always put sun screen on him to avoid skin cancer as well as keep a tube of zinc available in case of burns.

      And no man-o-war in the UK? There sting hurts terribly. But I do understand what you are saying. When I was a child we would head out with a bathsuit and a smile to the sea and that is Florida. But beach culture has changed so much over the last 20 years. Now you bring everything to protect your children from the elements.

      It would be interesting to note the difference between what is brought ot the beach in Greece versus Florida.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      I remember when we headed of the beach as children all my mother slung in was a towel, sandwiches, a bag of crisps - I remember enjoying the sandy texture of the crisps, good memories - and a jumper...We were in the UK after all!!

      Sounds great I'm on the way! I also take a book, something to write with, a bag of peanuts, and my wife. She walks and sometimes carries the bag. Good suggestions!!
