Beach Vacation Essentials For Every Family & Their Toddlers
Preparing a beach vacation packing list has to be quite strategic, such as having preventive measures like sunscreen, hats, and SPF swimsuits. Then there are also swimming gears that would keep your petits safe while looking stylish, and not to mention, toys that would entertain them for hours on the beach. Before you set off on your next beach vacation, we have come up with the ultimate beach vacation packing list below to make sure you don’t leave any essentials behind.
1. Sunscreen For Kids
If you have active kids who love being out and about playing sports or going to the beach, this spray sunscreen is perfect for you.
Ouate’s SPF 50 spray sunscreen offers high-performance protection against UVA and UVB rays, and it’s specifically formulated for the sensitive skin of children from 4 to 11 years old.
We love how this sun mist contains 89% ingredients from natural origin and it’s made free of nanoparticles. It also comes with a healthy dose of skin-nourishing ingredients such as sunflower oil extract to hydrate the skin and block off free radicals. The best part? Your kids will have fun spraying the sunscreen by themselves! We recommend spraying the mist on your petit then rub it into their skin for the best result.
2. Hats & SPF Swimsuits
With UPF 50+ protection, this one-piece swimsuit from Konges Sløjd is made with 80% recycled polyester and 20% elastane. We love how stretchy and comfortable the fabric is, and the two-tiered ruffle details and V-neck back give your toddler a stylish look at the pool and beach. And don’t forget to pack a sun hat to protect your little one’s eyes from the sun.Shop >> Konges Sløjd Moule Frill Swimsuit
3. Bucket Hat

4. Beach Toys
Don’t forget to pack plenty of beach toys for your little ones! Quut makes some of the best beach toys with durable, recyclable plastic, and we love how multi-functional they are. Use Quut Cuppi as a shovel to scoop out sand and make tracks for rolling the balls, or play catch the ball game. You can stack-and-click them together for easy storage.Shop >> Quut Cuppi Ocean Blue + Red Ball
5. Beach Buckets
It’s not a perfect beach day without making some sand castles, and we cannot rave more about Quut’s latest design Bucki. The bucket comes with a matching sieve for your little one to collect, wash and transport sea shells and other small treasures. You can also remove the clickable handle easily for building sandcastles.Shop >> Quut Bucki
Give your kid a boost of confidence as they learn how to swim with the coolest kids arm floaties from SUNNYLiFE. Arm floaties give your little one more freedom of movement, but do make sure that you’re always within an arm’s reach as they learn how to swim independently.
We also love this Smiley kiddy float that comes with a split design, so it’s easy for your toddler to get in and out. Repair patch is also included in case of punctures.
7. Swimming Cap
How cool is this shark shaped swimming cap? The Australian beach and summer lifestyle brand SUNNYLiFE is known for their stylish beach essentials, and your petit will definitely fall in love with their silicone swim caps. The high-quality silicone is non-toxic and it’s very stretchable, making it easy to tuck your little one’s long hair in, keeping it dry and protected from chlorine.Shop >> SUNNYLiFE Shaped Swimming Cap

If mermaid isn’t your petit’s cup of tea, SUNNYLiFE also has other designs such as little monster, dino, unicorn and smiley.Shop >> SUNNYLiFE Mini Swim Goggles
