How to Protect Your Belongings at the Beach

Going to the beach during the summer months is usually an all-day affair. You relax with your friends, maybe have a drink or two and just enjoy your time by the sea. The last thing you want to happen while you’re out cooling off in the water is to have your personal belongings damaged or stolen. To avoid this from happening, here are a few tips on how to keep your belongings safe at the beach!

First of all, Decide which Valuables You Need

If you’re going to spend the whole day at the beach you will need some personal belongings, mainly money and your mobile phone. Prioritise what you should take. Don’t take your tablet and as for money, take small notes in a small pouch. Also, a good idea is to replace expensive belongings with cheaper ones which you can use at the beach.

Purchase a Beach Vault

A Beach Vault is a fantastic way to keep your belongings safe and sound while you’re off exploring the underwater world or taking a short nap in the shade. This nifty invention comes with a special beach towel that you can attach to it so that it will never get lost. Secure your beach vault in the sand and place your beach towel over it knowing that your belongings are safely stored beneath you.

Cork your Keys

An item you definitely can’t leave at home is your house/car key. So what about using a cork floating key-ring? It will keep your keys afloat if they ever happen to fall in the sea!

Put Your Money in an Empty Sun Screen Bottle

If you have an empty sun screen bottle handy you could consider putting your money in it to keep it safe. When you’re at the beach no one is going to suspect that the bottle is being used as a make-shift safe. The bottle serves a dual purpose as it will also keep your money notes from getting wet.

Use a Dry-Bag

A dry-bag/waterproof bag is a great way of protecting your belongings from water damage. A good dry- bag is waterproof and wraps your belongings up nice and tight. Make sure to test it out at home first before you put any electronics in it though.

Purchase a Drink at the Bar and Ask if They Can Mind Your Bag

When you arrive at the beach see if you can spot any bar nearby. Buy yourself a drink and kindly ask the bartender if it would be possible for them to keep your bag behind the bar while you go for a swim. Most places won’t have a problem with minding your belongings for a while but for extra security there would be no harm in locking your bag before handing it over.

Have your mind at Rest

Now that you know how to protect your belongings at the beach you can relax and enjoy your time by the crystal clear water soaking up the sun.
