Visiting Khao Lak, 6 Ways to Have a Great Day at the Beach

December 13, 2019

Visiting the beach will offer you a relaxing and happy time with family and friends. Therefore, you can stay at the shore and savor the strong breeze or conduct fun activities like water sports or building sandcastles. If you are thinking about ways to enjoy your day at the beach, here are six essential tips to keep in mind for a stress-free beach experience.

1. Pack accordingly

Aside from your essentials, bring items according to what you’ll do at the beach. Bring a bag to sort out your clothes and other things that are either wet or will accumulate sand. It will be tough to clean afterward if you sand all over your possessions.

2. Don’t forget to bring bug repellant and sunscreen

Sunscreen protects your skin from harsh ultraviolet rays that can cause skin cancer. Likewise, it’s hard to move freely while dealing with sunburn pains. Apply moisturizer to your skin at night to soothe your skin for another day at the beach. Meanwhile, it always helps to have bug repellant with you to repel insects from damaging your skin.

3. Be aware of rip currents

Knowledge of waves and rip currents can save your life because many people die due to this natural occurrence yearly. Keep an eye on rip currents by watching for breaks in the wave patterns and identifying debris floating to the shore. Variation in the water’s color and choppy water are possible signs of rip currents.

If you happen to swim through one, propel yourself parallel to the shore and make your way to the sand. Likewise, swimming adjacent to lifeguard stations lets you stay safe while enjoying the swimming experience.

4. Bring drinking water

Sunlight can vaporize the water within your body, which can lead to limited movement and heat stroke. Because of this, you should replenish the fluids in your body by bringing drinking water and consuming some food to address hunger. Drink the right amount of liquid because overhydrating can damage your body as well. Likewise, make sure to clean up after eating and throw your trash at the proper waste bins.

5. Show your style

Turn the beach into your runway by bringing outfits and accessories that will make you look fabulous. Aquatic shoes, sun hats, and sunglasses are standard accessories that complement beach attire. Bring a wardrobe that will be appropriate for swimming, dining, and other beach-related activities.

6. Carry your equipment

While you can rent items for beach activities, it’s best to bring your items if possible. Bring your ball or net if you’re playing beach volleyball and pack the necessary equipment for snorkeling or disc golf. Chances are that the scuba suits and other equipment will not fit your size, making it harder to move and enjoy the activity.
