Our top tips
Here are a few top tips, tried and tested by Simplyhealth parents, to make your visit to the beach as easy as possible.
1. Pack light
No-one wants to spend hours lugging everything from the car park to the beach (easier said than done, but see below for some of our essential must-brings).
2. Get everything ready the night before
That way you can just concentrate on getting you and the kids out of the door.
3. Get to the beach early
This way you can have your pick of the best spots on the beach (if you think your kids are likely to spend a lot of time in the water, then near the water is good – but don’t forgot to check the tide times).
4. Stake out your ‘zone’ with enough space
By having a large beach mat or picnic rug, you’ll all have somewhere to come back to, and enough space to stretch out.
