General Beach Tips
When you’re packing for your trip, there are many things to consider. Besides booking a room at a top quality Osoyoos resort like Desert Surfside, bringing beach equipment like a sand-free beach bag is always a good idea. Sand is great when you’re at the beach, however, it is less fun once you get home and everything you brought is covered in it. Also, you may want to consider packing some bug spray. There’s nothing more annoying than getting bit by bugs all day.
If you are going to the beach with kids, you may want to take some other factors into consideration, and prepare for all kinds of situations. Creating a sponge lei as a necklace for your kids to wear in case they get too hot can be a great way to deal with the dangers of overexposure to the sun and sun stroke. Also, bringing along a cooler with ice packs to keep your drinks and food cool, can help when dealing with the heat. Bring a beach tent to provide shelter from the sun. Too much sun and heat will make anyone a little irritable, so bringing along your a tent or umbrella where you and your family can get some rest can keep your day at the beach from being a bummer.
Everyone knows the importance of wearing a sunscreen while we’re outside, but not may people are aware that we have to keep reapplying it frequently. If you or one of your guests experiences a severe sunburn, one that results in pain, blisters or nausea, you should get medical attention as soon as possible. One tip we have is keeping your sunscreen in a cooler; this way when you apply or reapply the sunscreen, it will help to cool down your body as well. Remember to apply sunscreen on even on cloudy days as well; 40% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays reaches our planet even on days with overcast. Another tip is to set a timer on your phone to reapply sunscreen so you don’t forget.
