The first burn of the season is rough. Protect your skin by packing an extra bottle of sunscreen for your trip. Be sure to check the expiration date and check out recommendations on the best sunscreen by the Skin Cancer Foundation.

3. Bring a Comfy Beach Chair: No trip to the beach is complete without a few days with your toes in the sand and a good book in your hand. Relax in luxury and bring a comfortable beach chair to sit and watch the waves and catch a tan.

4. Plan Activities for Good and Bad Weather: There’s nothing worse than being stuck inside with nothing to do on your vacation. Fight the bad weather blues by bringing some indoor activities such as card games, movies, or small games to hang out with the family on a cloudy day.

5. Take Lots of Photos and Videos: Preserve the wonderful memories that you, your friends, and family are making by taking lots of photos and videos. If possible, bring a digital camera that shoots underwater so you don’t have to worry about getting your camera wet and sandy.
