Imagine a scene where you camp near cozy winds and dazzling waters; the sound of ramming waves make a long weekend vacation for your family and friends feel like paradise. But considering the unpredictable conditions of the coast, everything goes to ruin if things are not well planned and geared for the trip. Making camp on the beach needs different types of equipment so get ready to pack the right gear to make your seashore trip a fun and relaxing experience for everyone.
Radio, Boom box, or a Digital Karaoke
Why would you travel if you don't have music to play or some good tunes to hear? Music can help you elevate your seashore camping experience creating more fun by singing along with the songs, dancing in the night, and drowning out distraction from the noise around you. Just make sure you are respectful to those around you and adhere to any rules of the beach.
Wearing a life jacket is mandatory if you are planning on doing any boating excursions, which most beaches always have. Always bring your life jacket if you plan to swim or do any water activities. If you don’t have a life jacket, you can always rent one.
Bugs and mosquitos will always appear on beach campsites, so never forget your bug repellent!

Protection from the Sun
Never depend on the clouds to protect you from the sun's harmful UV rays. Camping at the beach is different from taking a few hours at the beach. You don't want your day to be miserable with burnt skin for the rest of your trip with grueling pain on your side. Bring umbrellas, hats, SPF 80, and Aloe vera products to protect you from the sun. It doesn't hurt to be extra cautious.
Blanket or Sleeping Bag
The Featherstone Moondance 25 Top Quilt delivers the best in class performance for any condition. A good blanket will provide the best comfort by keeping you warm and dry, a good quality to have when traveling outdoors.
Your trip will be a moment to remember, be sure to practice safety and have the essentials with you.
