10 tips for a day at the beach with children

1. Choose a family friendly beach

When going to the beach with children, opt for beaches with family-friendly services and amenities, such as playgrounds, toilets, showers, and possibly umbrellas and sun loungers. A child-friendly environment will make sure everyone enjoys themselves to the fullest.

2. Solar protection

Sun protection is essential for children, but also for adults. Make sure you bring a sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF 50) and apply it generously to your kids' skin every 2 hours. Don't forget to protect their eyes with sunglasses and use hats or caps to shield their faces from the sun.


3. Creating shade

Keep children out of the sun during the hottest part of the day. Bring an umbrella or beach tent to create a shaded area where they can rest, hydrate and enjoy worry-free.

4. Beach equipment

Bring a complete beach kit including towels, sand toys, buckets, shovels and floating devices. These items will keep children entertained and active for hours.

5. Hidration

Keep children well hydrated during their time in the sun. Bring plenty of fresh water and healthy snacks such as fruit and sandwiches.

6. The right clothes

Dress children in comfortable swimming costumes and light clothing that protects them from the sun and allows them to move freely. It is also useful to bring extra clothes for changing after a day of fun in the sand.


7. Supervision

Never let children out of your sight while they are on the beach or in the water. Be alert and supervise their activities at all times to ensure their safety.

8. Safe water games

Before children enter the water, make sure they are familiar with the environment and sea conditions. If there are waves or strong currents, keep children close to the shore and always within reach.

9. First aid

Be prepared for minor injuries and accidents. Carry a first aid kit including bandages, plasters and painkillers, if necessary.

10. Time to leave

At the end of the day at the beach, be sure to clean up and collect all belongings, including sand toys and litter. Leave the beach in good conditions to preserve its natural beauty.

With these tips in mind, you'll be ready to enjoy a family beach getaway full of fun, safety and unforgettable moments.
