The Ultimate Beach Packing List For Families {Free Printable!}

Updated: Apr 30

Your beach essentials checklist for 2021 is here.

It's hard to believe that Spring Break has already come and gone, and summer 2021 is right around the corner. During the warm and sunny months of summer, there's simply nothing better than a relaxing family beach day.

Picture it now: the warm sun on your skin, the smell of salt water in the air, the hot sand on your feet, the crashing waves in the distance, children building sandcastles, and a cold drink in your hand (preferably with an adorable little umbrella).

But for as much fun as a beach trip can bring, it can also bring very real dangers, big and small.

Long days at the beach can lead to a sunburn and dehydration, for examples, and any kind of open water comes with its own concerns. It's best to be prepared, especially when you're with kids.
