You’re at the beach. The sun is shining, and the water is refreshing. You’re watching the waves gently lap the shore.
We hope you love the family beach gear we recommend! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay. Listed prices are accurate as of the time of publication.
You can’t hear the waves, though, because your kid is wailing at the top of her lungs after failing to yank a plastic pail away from another toddler. (You forgot the beach toys.) Your other kid is wet and shivering, but the dog is sprawled across his sandy towel. (You didn’t bring a beach blanket.)
Don’t ruin a perfect beach vacation by being unprepared. Instead, follow this genius plan, and you’ll actually enjoy your trip.
