If you're looking to beat the heat this summer, there's no better place to do it than at Aboiteau Beach. With the sun shining and the waves caressing the shore, it's easy to relax and forget all your worries. However, you should bring a few things to make your day more enjoyable. Here's a list of essential accessories to pack in your beach bag:

1. Sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat to protect yourself from the sun

If you want to have a fun and relaxing day at the beach, the first thing you need to plan for is sun protection. Sunscreen, sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat are essential items to take with you to protect yourself from the sun's rays. Be sure to apply sunscreen regularly, especially if you are going into the water.

2. Water and snacks

It's also important to stay hydrated when you're at the beach. Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration, and don't forget to pack snacks for energy. Pack your beach bag with reusable water bottles and healthy snacks such as fresh fruit, raw vegetables, nuts and cheese.

3. Beach towels and blankets

A beach towel is a must for any beach outing. It's perfect for drying off or lying on the sand after a swim. Don't forget to pack a few extra towels in case they get wet, or opt for a blanket that you can use to warm you up at the end of the day. Beach chairs are also convenient and more comfortable if you prefer to sit rather than lie down.

4. Your favourite relaxation accessories (books, music, sudoku!)

Why not enjoy a day at the beach and take a break from electronics? Bring a good book, magazines, crossword puzzles or sudoku. If you can't live without your phone or other devices, make sure you have a way to keep them charged. Bring a portable battery charger or a solar-powered charger to keep your devices powered up all day.

5. Beach games and toys

Are you the active type? Then don't forget to bring a few games to keep you entertained: a frisbee, a football, or the ever-popular local game of washer. If you have children, don't forget to bring toys like buckets and shovels. Bring containers for the kids (and older kids!) to build sandcastles or collect shells.

A well-stocked beach bag = a perfect day!

Whether you're planning a day at the beach with friends or want to relax on your own, these essentials will help make your day fun, relaxing and worry-free. So pack your beach bag and visit us at Aboiteau Beach!
