12 Awesome Gadgets You Should Take To The Beach

12 Awesome Gadgets You Should Take To The Beach

Summer is coming and I’m sure most of you are ecstatic about going to the seaside as I am. Taking a vacation and having a bit of fun does wonders for our stress levels, keeps us vigorous and lets us recharge our batteries. If you have already picked out your destination, and chances are you have, than it might be the right time to think about what to bring along. Don’t worry, I’m not going to bore you with a standard list of stuff to bring like sunscreen and things like that.

I’m here to talk about gadgets that are fun and can make your summer holiday a bit better, and provide you with some additional activities you can participate in. So, let’s dive into it, shall we?

1. UV Monitor – Health first folks

    Spending the entire day sizzling in the sun is great but it can also be dangerous for your health. Having a UV Monitor to tell you when you need to protect yourself should be a priority.

    2. Video Camera Scuba Mask – Making Underwater Memories

    Scuba diving is really fun, and sometimes words are just not enough to describe the experience. You could talk for hours and still not be able to explain what you’ve felt while diving, but a video can do this for you.

      Most people dive during the day, but how about diving at night. This could be quite dangerous, but if you get this gadget, you are free to enjoy the magic nighttime the sea can offer.

      4. eBook Reader – Bring Your Library to the Beach

      Kindle

        This is a standard seaside activity. In some cases, it might be a problem picking out a book you would enjoy while relaxing on the beach. Having a Kindle is a great solution for this kind of problems since it allows you to bring your entire library with you and even buy new books without any hassle.

        5. RC Metal Detector – Treasure Hunting on a Whole New Level

        Searching for lost treasures in the sand is great fun and can help you kill some time while getting a tan. Using an RC dune buggy will make it even more fun – it combines the fun of a remote control car with the excitement of a treasure hunt – and who knows what you might find!

        6. A Waterproof Deck of Cards – A Royal Flush That Won’t be Destroyed by Water

        Playing cards

          Card games are a great group activity when you are feeling too lazy to swim or play volleyball. Unfortunately, cards can be destroyed easily by wet hands and water dripping from the hair of the players. This is a great way to avoid this.

          7. Two Person Hovercraft – Let’s Go For a Ride

            This one is a bit pricy, but imagine cruising through the waves with a friend or a partner and enjoying the sea like never before. Also, this isn’t a thing that breaks down easily.

            8. Waterproof iPod Case and Speakers – The Music You Want Without Risk

              Music can dictate the mood of any situation, and there is no better feeling than being able to relax in the water while listening to your favorite artists thanks to a good waterproof iPod or iPhone case, and at the same time avoiding the risk of destroying their iPods.

              9. Twister Towel – I Don’t Think There is a Better Place to Play This Game Than the Beach

                I’m sure that most young people will agree with me on this one. Twister is always fun, and is a great game to play with friends.

                10. Cellphone Signal Amplifier

                  Not all beaches have cell phone coverage, but you can avoid this easily by bringing your signal amplifier with you. Sometimes, you can’t really avoid your business obligations completely, and this allows you to be available for emergency calls.

                  11. Remote Controlled Submarine – Up Periscope

                    Who says that toys are just for kids? This toy is perfect for all age groups and ensures hours of fun.

                    12. Underwater Scooter – Diving With Style

                      Scuba diving is fun, but can be quite exhausting, forcing you to take a break when you really don’t want to. An underwater scooter, in combination with one of the scuba masks mentioned before, you are going to have a blast.

                      These gadgets can make a trip to the seaside even more fun but the thing you mustn’t forget to bring is good mood. Everything else is secondary. Enjoy your vacation and have fun!
