__ Mesh laundry bag: Keeps beach necessities in and lets sand sift out.
__ First-aid kit: Include tweezers, hydrocortisone cream, and rubbing alcohol, in case of jellyfish stings.
__ Waterproof/underwater disposable camera
__ Packable straw hat: Look for ones you can literally roll up pack in your bag.
__ Soft-sided cooler: It's easy to pack and perfect for keeping bottles, boxed drinks, and snacks cold.
