Summer 2018 here we come!
Join us on our count down to number.
NUMBER 5. FREEZE YOUR WATER BOTTLE
There’s nothing worse than drinking hot water that’s been sitting out in the sun when you’re trying to cool down and stay hydrated.
Plan ahead and pop your water bottle into the freezer the night before you head to the beach. That way it’ll stay cooler for longer and you’ll avoid having to pay those hefty prices for cold water down at the beach.
NUMBER 4. INVEST IN A SAND FREE TOWEL
There are several options on the market for beach towels that are sand repellant.
They’re typically made from a special type of microfiber that allows the sand to slip off easily.
Our favorites include, Tesalate, Dock & Bay and Vertty beach towels. They all have colors and patterns that are super cool.
NUMBER 3. REUSE A PARKING TICKET
If you are having trouble finding parking near your favourite beach, you could save one of your old parking tickets and use it on your windscreen to avoid getting a new one.
Worth a shot right!
NUMBER 2. COCONUT OIL IN HAIR
For all those girls and guys with long hair, this one is a game-changer.
Forget having to deal with a tangled mess of straw that once used to resemble manageable hair. Put some coconut oil through your hair before hitting the beach and you’ll be surprised how nice it stays after a dip in the salt water.
NUMBER 1. DISGUISE YOUR VALUABLES
There's nothing worse than coming back to your towel to discover something’s gone missing.
Car keys, wallet, phone – unfortunately there’s no way of getting around bringing a bunch of valuable items with you to the beach.
Of courses the most valuable item is your sand pillow but it’s pretty heavy when it’s full of sand so you don’t have to worry about someone nicking it! Phew!
Why not out-smart those shady criminals but re-using an old sunscreen bottle to hide your valuables in? Wash it out, make sure the lid is removable and it’s big enough to fit all your valuables inside. They will never guess what it’s in their when it’s casually lying on your towel.
Both clever and practical makes this our top tip!
Enjoy your next trip to the beach!
