What to Pack For A Day at the Beach

Beach season is here again, which means filling up a beach bag of goodies and heading for the shore.

Beach season is here again, which means filling up a beach bag of goodies and heading for the shore. If this is your first time at the beach, or you have not been in years, you might be wondering what to bring. Thankfully, we are beach experts here at L’Auberge Del Mar and know exactly what to pack.

First, and foremost, you will need a swimsuit. Whether you are lounging about or heading into the ocean, a swimsuit is a perfect outfit for the occasion. We recommend packing a few pairs depending on how long your stay is. For shorter stays, two is perfect. For longer stays, look into bringing three swimsuits.


Get from your room to the beach in style with a cover-up. Cover-ups are perfect for throwing over your swimsuit and lightweight enough to move around in. They are also helpful for when you want to leave the beach and walk around Del Mar in something more than your swimsuit. For women, all you need is a lightweight dress and men only need a basic t-shirt to throw on. 

San Diego is sunny overall, so sunglasses are useful when visiting. They are especially helpful at the beach. The sand reflects the sunlight making the beach very sunny. Sunglasses cut down the glare and allows you to enjoy the bright sunny day with ease.


Flip Flops
Flip Flops are necessary to have for the beach. They are easy to pack, easy to wear, and more importantly, it is easy to clean the sand off. Plus, it helps you get into a beachy frame of mind before you set foot on the sand.

Beach Bag
Beach Bags are a perfect way to carry all your items to the beach. Not only are they big enough to hold everything, but they are great at keeping the sand out of the inside of your bag, and most importantly, off your stuff.


Beach Towel
There are plenty of spots at the Del Mar beach to lay out a towel and soak up some sun. An advantage of towels is you can transport them easily. Just roll one up and stick them in your beach bag. They work well in the sand or on the grassy field just above the beach.


Book/ Magazine
With its peaceful atmosphere, the beach is a perfect place to catch up on your reading. So bring that book or magazine you have been meaning to read and enjoy some reading time in the sunshine.
