Top 10 Best Beach Tech/Accessories You Can’t Miss
#1: The Beach Bag – A Lightweight And Spacious Beach Bag Is A Must
The one thing you don’t want to miss on your beach holiday is a lightweight and spacious beach bag. One that will allow you to bring your beach towels, sun creme, shades and all the other beach gadgets listed below.
Even better – one that allows you to be organised – with plenty of see-through pockets, allowing you easy access to all your stuff. One that is easy to clean down when you return from your day at the beach. One that will cater for the whole family.
A good example of such a beach bag is the Black Mesh Beach Tote – Family Size Whale Bag – available to buy from Amazon at just $36,97.
#2: An Inflatable Pillow – A Comfortable Head Rest Will Help You Relax
The last thing you want when returning from a day on the beach is a sore neck, due to being unable to support your head on something, or having to use a rolled-up towel or even a mound of sand.
The solution is to get a small inflatable pillow – just like the ones you use for travel and camping. Reading a book is so much easier when you’ve got something to rest your head on.
The Exped Air Pillow featured to the right starts at $30.71 from Amazon.com, a saving of 20% off the list price.
#3: MP3 Player
You can never have too much music. With an MP3 player you can allow yourself some ‘me-time’ and stay entertained while on the beach.
Obviously there is an issue with electronics and water – but there are plenty of waterproof MP3 players around – such as this Waterfi Waterproof Shuffle 4th Generation 2GB – a modified iPod shuffle that has been made 100% waterproof, and can be used in and out of the water.
It has been given rave reviews from everyone from occational swimmers to professional tri-athletes, and right now you get 25% at Amazon.com, with a pricetag of $134.95. It’s available i 5 diffrent colours.
#4: Underwater Camera
Now-a-days most people have got a digital camera, but unless they have been waterproofed, they don’t take well to water.
An alternative could be a Fujifilm Quick Snap Waterproof 35mm Single Use Camera – one of the old-fashined types where you have to hand in the film and wait for the outcome.
They are well suited for kids who want to have a bit of fun on the beach, and are up for doing a bit of exploring. The price starts at $8.54 on Amazon.com for a single camera, giving you 45% off the list price, but you can also buy them in packs of 4 for $32.99.
#5: The Rubik’s Cube
Who doesn’t remember the classic Rubik’s cube – the one that became a massive hit in the 1980’s? How many hours could you spend, sitting there to try and figure out how to solve this puzzle?
If you’re not in the mood to read a book or a magazine, a cube is an excellent alternative! While you relax in the sun, you still get to keep your mind active and working. It doesn’t take up a lot of space in your bag, and it’s good for several hours of entertainment.
The Lanlan 4×4 Puzzle Cube on the right is only $9.50 from Amazon.com
#6: Swimming Mask And Snorkel
A set of a swimming mask and a snorkel is always going to make a day at the beach much more fun, particularly if the waters are clear, and there are things to look at underwater.
This Speedo Adult Hyperdeep Mask/Snorkel Set is a good place to start, but you could also chose to buy the two individually.
The things you need to look out for is that you get a swimming mask that is good for both diving and snorkeling, that it fits well to your age and can be adjusted easily. It’s fine to get a basic snorkel, but do try and get one with a top/wave stop, which will prevent water from entering your snorkel when a wave goes over it – and maybe a purge valve that will quickly remove any water that might find its way in.
#7: Water Ball
If you’re not content to sit on the beach, struggling with a Rubik’s Cube or soaking up the sun, but want to get in the water and play games, a Waboba® Extreme Water Ball, which bounces on the water like skipping a stone could be an ideal alternative.
Stand at a distance of 10-15 metres between you in knee-deep water, and throw this ball to each other. Let it bounce/skip across the surface of the water, and try to challenge each other by throwing spinning balls, or catch the ball with one hand on your back. This ball could provide endless fun – but do remember to look out for other guests on the beach.
#8: Kindle Fire
What could be better than sitting, relaxing on the beach, reading your favorite book or magazine? Perhaps doing it on the Kindle Fire from Amazon.com
It has been labelled the first successful tablet which is not produced and marketed by Apple, and comes with an impressive range of features for the pricetag of just $199.00.
The Kindle Fire can do a lot more than hold your favorite books and magazines. It also plays movies and music, surfs the internet and it’s linked with the Android Market so you can download app’s to your hearts content.
#9: The Frisbee
The frisbee is a classic beach toy, more so in the 1980’s and 1990’s, which offers both good fun and a bit of excersise with your friends.
This more modern version, the Aerobie Pro Ring is no exception. It flies fast and steadily over long distances – in fact it holds the Guines World Record for the farthest throw (1,333 feet).
Some people would argue that this is far superior to the classic frisbee – and maybe they’re right – the main thing is that it offers bags of fun!
#10: Travel Backgammon
The classic game of backgammon is always a hit on the beach, if you’re after a bit of play time, while not being into watersports. Travelling round the Mediterranian – you’ll find backgammon players all round the sea side and in bars along the coast.
The Backgammon Magnetic Travel Set to the right is an ideal game to bring to the seaside, and because it’s only quite small, it’ll easily fit into your beach bag.
The magnetic pieces will hold on to the board – even if a beach ball should bounce your way.
