12 Stylish Beach Essentials Every Dude Should Pack
Whether it’s a quick trip to the coast or a week-long getaway in Tulum, the beach is the perfect escape from your day-to-day. To make sure you can truly unwind once you hit the shore, we’re here to help you pack. From swim trunks (duh) to those necessary extras that are easy to forget (looking at you, sunscreen), these are the 12 items you don't want to leave home without.
Outerknown Halcyon Shorts
These simple hybrid swim trunks from Outerknown will fit the pace of any beach getaway. Headed up to the boardwalk after a swim? Sturdy hemp and organic cotton canvas construction and quick drain mesh pockets come in handy when you’re ready to take a walk away from the water.
Mack Weldon Bonded Tote
Leave your grocery bags at home and travel in style with this lightweight tote from Mack Weldon. It’s waterproof thanks to bonded seams and gives you plenty of room for a towel, change of clothes, and e-reader.
Salt+Stone All Natural Sunscreen
Your skin deserves a lot of love and you’ll get it with Salt+Stone’s all-natural sunscreen with SPF 30. Post-vacation, you’ll thank yourself for using the anti-inflammatory blend of herbal extracts that'll leave your face smooth instead of fried.

UO ‘50s Stripe Rayon Short Sleeve Button-Down Shirt
Move over loud, floral Hawaiian shirts, and make room for vintage-inspired stripes! With a relaxed fit and easy camp collar, this updated design complements any pair of solid-colored swim trunks and won’t require a change before dinner.
Birkenstock 'Arizona Soft' Sandal
Ashton Kutcher, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Usher have all jumped on the Birkenstock bandwagon and guess what? You should too. The leather sandals are made to last and their footbed mimics the shape of your foot to give you plenty of support.
JBL Clip 3 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
If you’re on the beach to party, you’ll be needing one of these guys to blast that perfectly curated Spotify playlist you've been working on. This speaker from JBL is ultra portable due to its built in carabiner and boasts up to 10 hours of battery life.

Timex + Todd Snyder The Mod Watch
The bullseye design of this watch—based on a classic Timex archive—instantly polishes any beach outfit. Bonus: fashion meets function as the watch is water resistant up to 50 meters.
Everlane The Baseball Cap
If you can't give up the baseball cap, even on the beach, opt for this one from Everlane. Made from super lightweight, breathable cotton-poplin, it will keep the sun out of your eyes and your head cool. We love the off-white shade for summer, but consider tie-dyeing to be the trendiest dude at the beach.
