With this checklist in hand, you’ll be well-prepared to kick back, relax, and soak up the sun.

Food and Refreshments

The beach experience is all about relaxing and enjoying the sun. But if you are like me, the thought of sitting on a beach for hours without any food can leave you a little deflated. Thankfully, there are plenty of food options within our local towns and beaches that would love to welcome you in and serve you some fantastic food. However, if your looking for the full beach day experience make sure to plan ahead by bringing your own from the caravan for a beach side picnic. The key to most peoples happiness is food so whether it’s a picnic lunch or local pub grub make sure to plan ahead or make reservations within the busy months
