Step 1: Pack smart Pack gear that can do more than one thing, such as a beach bag that converts to a nifty beach mat for you to lay out on. Tip Limit plastic bottles, utensils, and bags to cut down on the amount of trash you'll have to pack up and take with you. Step 2: Protect your eyes and skin Protect your eyes with sunglasses that are labeled "U-V 400" or "100 percent U-V protection." Look for sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor, or SPF, of at least 15. Step 3: Bring chairs and an umbrella Bring lightweight folding chairs so you have a place to sit, and don't forget a beach umbrella to get out of the bright sun when things get too hot. Step 4: Remember foot wear Remember to bring footwear -- either sandals or flip-flops. Beach sand can get really hot, so be prepared and protected. Step 5: Remember toys Pack water and sand toys, and a football or Frisbee to play with when you get bored of sunbathing or swimming. Tip Bring a book or a magazine to squeeze in some light reading during your down time. Step 6: Pack a cooler Pack a cooler with snacks, sandwiches and lots and lots of water. Basking on the beach can take a lot out of you, so you'll want to feed yourself and stay hydrated. Did You Know? Canada has the longest coastline in the world, and Monaco has the shortest.
