Beach days are upon us here in Westchester County. Whether you decide to lounge locally at one of Westchester’s beaches or hit the road, be sure to prepare with these must-haves. From upgrading those worn-out items in your beach bag to making purchases you didn’t know you needed, these items will ensure you have an ideal, smooth-sailing beach trip this summer.

Facial Spray

We all know how important sunscreen is for protecting our skin from UV rays. But how about protecting our face from the inevitable dryness that seems to take over after a day at the beach? This hydrating spray by Evian refreshes your skin, allowing you to leave the beach feeling sun-kissed and moisturized.

Folding Table

A beach table is essential for those items you wish not to submerge in the sand (like your cellphone, cool beverage, or summer reading book, for instance). This ultralight compact table comes in two sizes and four colors: blue, black, light brown, and silver.


Let’s be real: If there were no games in the beach bag, would it be considered a successful beach trip? For starters, KanJam is the ideal outdoor disc toss game. Spikeball takes the competition to the next level with its mix of volleyball and foursquare. If you’re searching for a more laidback game, cornhole and ladder toss are the way to go.

Sand-Proof Blanket

There’s nothing worse than laying on your beach towel after a refreshing swim only to find it layered with sand. Luckily for you, we have a solution. This beach blanket is sand-proof, heat-resistant, waterproof, and washable, making it an essential for summer outings. It has four anchor pockets and ground nails, so you don’t have to worry about it flying away. Plus, it’s big enough for the whole family, allowing you to skip out on bringing those bulky towels altogether.

Waterproof Camera

Why limit your beachside pictures? Savor all the seaside memories with a waterproof camera made by Polaroid. This USB rechargeable waterproof camera is perfect for snapping waterside pictures, snorkeling videos, and everything in between. It comes in orange, blue, and red.

YETI Rambler Colster

YETI products are practical for all your outdoor needs, especially on sweltering days when you’re not the only one breaking a sweat (yes, we’re looking at your beer). Keep your beverage chilled for hours with a can insulator. Of the insulator designs, one is made to fit a standard 12 oz. can and another is specifically for slimmer cans. They come in 20 colors, so you’ll always know whose beverage is whose.
