Hey, iTAN besties! It’s August, which means making as many beach trips with your friends as possible before school starts up again. We’ve compiled a list of everything you’ll need to have your best beach day with your bestie!


1. Cooler (& snacks)

No beach trip is complete without snacks to enjoy! Be sure to bring a cooler to keep your snacks fresh while you and your bestie lounge out in the sun. We love this SunnyLife Eco Cooler Bag from Aerie! It’s cute, compact and perfect for your best beach day.

2. Sunglasses

Stay cool, calm and collected with some cute shades! It’s important to shield your eyes from the sun (and look good while doing it). These chunky pink sunglasses from Urban Outfitters will add sass to any outfit, and make sure your eyes are well protected.

3. Speaker

A speaker is ESSENTIAL for any beach trip! Listen to music while enjoying the company of your bff. This JBL Portable Waterproof Speaker is small, stylish and is sure to bring you the best vibes for your beach day.

4. XL Beach Towel

Yes, a normal towel is great for lounging and staying dry, but you need an XL beach towel for your best bestie beach day! This XL towel from Sand Cloud is super absorbent, sand free and 10% of its profits go towards marine conservation. It’s a win, win, win!

6. A Good Read

Sometimes, sitting in silence is a good way to bond with your best friend- even better if you’re both indulging in the same book! The Happiness Project is a great read for young adults who are looking for a feel-good and insightful story.
