1. With 3 kids I like to take a great big waterproof beach bag - you never know when a wave might show up!

2. Lightweight towels and a family sized beach picnic blanket.

3. A sensational robust umbrella, beach kit umbrellas are the best!

4. Natural zinc for faces to last all day, and uva/uvb broad spectrum high protection for bodies.

5. Hats

6. Rashies/wetsuits

7. Snacks chopped vegetables/fruit. Kids get hungry at the beach, making it easier to get them to eat the good stuff.

8. For me I take a foldable beach chair and a great magazine.
