    A Cute Cover-Up

    A flowy dress or shirt that can be slipped over your swim suit is a must. Beach restaurants won’t let you in to dine if you’re wearing just your swimsuit. A cover up also protects your skin from burning in harsh sun rays while building a castle in the sand or going for a walk along the shore.

    We are told not to swim on a full stomach, but don’t swim on an empty stomach either. A lot of energy is spent playing beach volleyball or swimming in the waves so it is important to eat. A water bottle or three is extremely important; you have to stay hydrated! Don’t forget to snap a picture of your treat on the beach and recycle!
