Beach walks are some of the best walks. Depending on where you are, you can end up walking for miles down the beach, or along beach trails without even noticing how far you’ve gone. Walking on the beach is a great calf workout and a good pair of waterproof shoes
is super convenient to have. It’s always nice to throw on a beach cover-up
for walks, and have your sunglasses
handy for those sunray glares off the ocean.
Probably at least once during your beach camping trip, you will dive into the refreshing ocean waters. So of course, have your favorite swimsuit and a beach towel to dry off and warm up afterward. Make sure you have reef-safe sunscreen on to protect the sea life so that you don’t have to keep reapplying after you get wet.
If you have a boat hook up, jump right on it and take a trip around the bay during your camping trip at the beach! It’s such a fun way to get out on the water and maybe even see some sea life. You will definitely want the floating wrist strap to keep your devices/cameras safe. I also recommend sticking your phone in the waterproof case just in case. Don’t forget your bathing suit in case you want to take a dip. Sometimes it can get chilly on the water, so bring a sweatshirt just in case.
Depending on where you are beach camping, there can be a lot of lookout points and places to see sea life and birds. On the West Coast, you will often spot sea lions, seals, and otters from the shore. If you are lucky you may even see the occasional whale. Don’t forget to bring binoculars to the beach so you don’t miss an exciting picture. Wear a sun hat as a visor against the sun and dress comfortably in a comfy pair of shorts.
