No summer trip to San Diego is complete without a trip to the beach. While you may not be much of a swimmer, sunbathing is a relaxing and beneficial alternative. Before you leave your cheap Petco Park hotel in downtown San Diego, make sure you have the following sunbathing essentials to optimize the experience.
Soak up San Diego’s rays with the protection of a good sunblock that has a minimum of SPF 30. Be sure to reapply every two hours, too. You don’t want to suffer painful sunburn during your trip.
Sunblock can protect your skin from the sun, but it never hurts to have a little additional defense. Bring a wide-brimmed hat to give your skin extra shielding from the sun’s rays. You get extra points if you opt for a UV sun hat that’s equipped with built-in sun protection, too.
Hydration is key for anyone who wants to have a pleasant sunbathing experience. Make the most out of your sunbathing session by bringing along some refreshments. Keep a sports drink, coconut water or classic H20 by your side to stay alert, energetic and in good spirits. Keep a cooler on hand to ensure your beverages are nice and cool when you’re ready to gulp them down.
Few things can be more fun and relaxing than feeling the warm glow of the sun, unless you’re enjoying a really engaging book while you sunbathe. If you’re in the mood for lighter reading material, a couple fashion or cooking magazines should be able to keep you entertained during your time in the sun.
Music is an essential component for anyone who loves sunbathing. While it can be lovely to revel in the sounds of the waves crashing against the beach, it can also be fun to change things up and bring in some mellow tunes that match your laid-back mood.
Last but not least, a cozy and large beach blanket is a must-have item for anyone who wants to get comfortable while sunbathing. Beach blankets can keep messy sand at bay and also feel pleasantly soft against the body.
After a relaxing day on the beach, head back to the Pacific Inn to refresh and prepare for a night out on the town.
