12 Not-So-Obvious Beach Bag Essentials

Summer is in full effect and I’ve been trying to take advantage of living in California. It’s my second summer here and I’ve been heading to the beach whenever I get a chance! Whether you’re headed to a lake, pool or beach bound you need to have your go-to beach bag essentials ready to rock. I’m not talking about the obvious items like sunglasses or sunscreen.

I’m sharing with you the items you don’t think of, but wished you had. I like to go prepared, but not over pack as I do when I travel 😉
