Packing a lunch for your day trip? Or just want a hard surface where you can play cards or place your drinks and purses? This affordable pop-up table is easy to carry and easy to store, folding up in a bag. Once you have one, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it! (Beach Store, $20)
Tote all your beach gear in style in a bag that won’t mind getting a little sand on it: a lightweight waterproof vinyl tote! It comes in several colors and can be personalized with your name, initial or monogram. (Think Personalized, $20)
If you’re gonna bring a float, you might as well make it a fun one! ModCloth, of all places, has some really superb picks. We’re digging this bitten-into donut that looks both delicious and super fun to float around in. At $25, it’s also quite the deal!
Want to bring a game on your water trip, but afraid of ruining it? This water-resistant deck of playing cards is perfect. Just think of the many different games you can play with a simple deck of cards, and the transparent plastic is easy to wipe down at the end of the day. (MOMA Store, $8)
Nervous to leave your valuables behind while you’re jumping in the water? The Vacation Vault is a 7×6-inch case that holds your keys and cash with a three-digit combination lock while you swim, grab food and/or run to the bathroom. An attached cable loop helps you attach the vault to a picnic table or beach chair so that no one can run off with it easily, either! (Wayfair, $21)
