Reflecting on this exact helpful info, we know, at Oxford at Iron Horse, that beach necessities can way beyond a simple towel and a bottle of sunscreen. So, if you plan to spend all day on the sand, you owe it to yourself to make the experience one to remember, and part of the way you can guarantee that is by ensuring you have everything you need to enjoy yourself fully in the hours you devote to the sun and shore. Whether you're on summer vacation or just taking a quick day trip, here are four items that you'll want to invest in now to enjoy on all future beach excursions.

Beach Blanket with Stakes

No one wants to sit on the hot sand, and a beach blanket with spikes is one way to solve that problem quickly. Not only is it light and airy, but it is also big enough to comfortably seat multiple people. With the stakes that come with it, you will be able to easily spread it out and keep it in place for hours at a time. Best of all, it repels water and does not get soggy like the average beach towel. When you're ready to go, simply roll it up into its convenient pouch for your next beach outing!

Family-Sized Beach Sunshade

Of course, you want to have fun in the sun – but maybe, you should keep some sun out of that equation. An overload of UV rays can be damaging to your body in more ways than one! To get more out of your trip to the beach, consider purchasing a family-sized beach sunshade, which is able to block out approximately 98 percent of UV radiation. It is super simple to set up with four aluminum poles, and most only weigh about seven pounds for easy-to-manage transport. They’re also available in individual sizes, as well!

Folding Beach Table with Carrying Bag

A convenient, personal-sized beach table makes going to the beach akin to hosting your own house party or outdoor cookout. You can really set the spread – and therefore, the mood – with one. Not only will the table keep your food and other personal items out of the sand, but certain models come with a personal cooler underneath, and it allows you to keep all of your beverages chill for the entire day. Like many other beach items, it will collapse into its own bag for easy transport after a day of fun in the sun.

Beach Wagon

Need a way to haul all your brand-new beach finds around? A beach wagon is an answer! If you're traveling with family, especially children or grandchildren, a beach wagon takes the headache out of making moves from the parking lot to the sand. Typically, they are sizable in height, length, and depth and can store everything, from beach towels to coolers. The handle and wheels make it easy to navigate in the sand and help you avoid making multiple trips back to the car. Now, that’s what we call convenience!
