There's no doubt that beach trips are meant to be relaxing breaks from reality.

Since a beach day should be nothing less than easy and breezy, we considered some of the major complications that come with a day at the shore and found five essentials to solve them all. So, slather on some SPF and sit back and relax, because your beach day just got a whole lot simpler and a lot less sandy.
