Ok. Let’s start!

It’s already June. And with June comes summer and good weather. One of my favorite activities during the summer is going to the beach.

I go to the beach usually in the mornings when there are not many people. I find that midday is too hot, and the sun’s rays really burn the skin, but some people love that.

Today I want to talk about what to take to the beach. This way you will practice the specific vocabulary on the subject and, of course, you will be the most prepared on the beach.

#1 Swimsuit
The most important thing is wearing a swimsuit. A swimsuit is a piece of clothing people wear for swimming, especially women and girls.

Men on the other hand wear swimming trunks. They are often made from light, fast-drying materials like nylon or polyester.

#2 Towel
You may want to dry yourself when you get out of the water. Therefore, you need a towel. But the beach towel is not only for drying yourself. You can spread it out on the sand and lie down. So, you can sunbathe and get a tan. That’s why beach towels are usually extra-large.

#3 Sunscreen
In summer, the sun hits hard. Its intensity is high, especially in the central hours of the day. To enjoy the sun without being harmed, wear good sunscreen. Sometimes it is also called a sunblock. It is usually a cream applied to the skin and absorbed little by little.

#4 Sunglasses
Not only do you have to protect your skin, but also your eyes. You know that in summer, the sun is very intense. So, it is essential to wear a good pair of sunglasses.

#5 Hat or cap
Although I don’t usually wear a hat or cap, I think it’s a good idea to wear it to protect your head in the middle hours of the sun. If I had to choose, I would prefer a cap, as you can store it better anywhere. 

#6 Beach Air mattress.
Imagine you want to have something that floats and also be able to lie down in the water. This is the perfect solution: a beach air mattress.

There are plenty of things to take to the beach, and in the next episode, we will continue talking about this topic.
