Bogg Bag

Check Latest Price

We've been looking for the perfect beach bag, and we've finally found it. The Bogg Bag is a unique tote that's large enough to carry everything you need for a trip to the beach. A Bogg Bag won't tip over and spill everything, and it won't leak. On top of that, it's both durable and washable. At the end of the day, all you have to do is hose it down.

As the numerous five-star reviews point out, the Bogg Bag is ''ginormous enough to carry two beach towels, two sets of clothes, two sets of water shoes, four bottled drinks, snacks and phone and keys go in the attached side pockets."

Turkish Towels

We've already raved about Turkish Towels here at Oola, but that's not stopping us from doing it again. Turkish Towels are the BEST. The light cotton fabric keeps them from being bulky or heavy. That means they can be easily packed into a beach bag, but the benefits don't end there.

Turkish Towels have magical drying powers that allow them to dry super fast. Talk about a quick dry! And, with repeated laundering, the cotton just keeps feeling better and better.

The footrest is also adjustable, and the headrest flips over to reveal a face opening to use when laying flat. The Ostrich 3N1 Beach Chair features a single carrying strap and weighs less than 10 pounds.

You've gotta stay safe when spending a day out in the sun, and that means loading up on the sunscreen. Thinksport Sunscreen is a beach essential, and you've got a lot of options to choose from. Thinksport offers an SPF 50, as well as an SPF 30. You can buy both with a special combo pack that is currently on sale.

Thinksport also has their Thinkbaby line for little ones. The natural, biodegradable, water-resistant baby sunscreen was made for babies with sensitive skin, and health-conscious parents looking for natural sun protection.

We really love their Thinkbaby Aloe Vera After Sun for those days when you get a little too much sun at the beach.
