Summer is officially here and whether you're headed out on a day trip to the beach or vacationing somewhere tropical, a well-stocked beach bag is a must for getting the most out of a relaxing beach trip. We've rounded up 7 must-haves to make the most out of your oceanside trip.

1. The Bag



Any trip to the beach needs a carryall bag, and it's best to find a cute style that will easily hold everything you need while keeping your essentials safe from the sand.
