Packing for your trip to Daytona Beach

When packing for your family beach trip to Daytona Beach, Florida you will want to make sure you are prepared for fun in the sun. The crucial items to pack will revolve around sun protection.

You will want to pack a sunscreen of at least fifteen SPF (Sun Protection Factor). Children will need an SPF of thirty or higher. Dermatologists also recommend using lip balm with an SPF of fifteen or higher. Once you have the right SPF sunscreens do not forget to apply them to the sun sensitive parts of your body: your face, nose ears and shoulders. It is a great idea to pack an aloe based after sun lotion for soothing the skin.

Consider purchasing sun protective clothing or wearing a t-shirt to provide an extra layer of sun protection. Ultra violet protected sunglasses are good for your eyes when going out into the sun. Wide brimmed hats also provide added protection.

Pack your own beach umbrella or plan to rent one once you get to your destination. Beach chairs are nice to have but are not necessary, they can be rented as well. Bring at least one beach towel per person, extras are nice to have.

If the kids are looking to play on the beach you may want to pack some water toys such as canvas balls or Frisbees. Sand and water toys are always great at the beach. Pails and shovels to build sandcastles are a lot of fun. Do not forget your sand sifter and a container so you can search for shells on the sea shore.

Lastly, bring plenty of water for you and your family. Staying hydrated is super important. Packing an underwater or waterproof camera is a must to capture all those great memories on film.
