A water bottle to stay hydrated along with simple foods for snacking.  The Skinnygirl Sparklers are very refreshing and come in tropical flavors such as Pineapple Coconut and Tangerine Mango. They also taste great when used as a mixer with vodka for the perfect beach cocktail!

Most of us can access iTunes via our smartphones to keep our favorite songs playing throughout the day.  What would a day at the beach be without listening to your favorite music downloads or hearing some Caribbean tunes featuring the steel drums?
