7 Beach Hacks for Your Pearl Beach Inn Vacation

Want to enjoy your Pearl Beach Inn vacation to the fullest? These beach hacks will make you look good and make others jealous. Here are 7 of our favorite beach hacks at the Pearl Beach Inn!

Red Solo Cup Ice Packs

On vacation and don't have any ice packs? Just grab some red solo cups from the nearest gas station, fill them with water and freeze them overnight! Use them to fill up the cooler and keep things cool. You can even let them melt and provide you with some hydration in crucial situations!

Fitted Sheet Marks the Spot

Sand gets on everything when you are at the beach. You really don't want sand to be everywhere and on all your things. Covering the sand with clothing, towels & beach blankets helps, but inevitably fails. Ready for a solution that you already have at your home?

Fitted sheets are the answer! Use a fitted sheet, upside down, to mark your territory. Keep it in place by putting your cooler and other heavier items at the 4 edges. 

Bonus points if you bring a small plastic foot wash with water to leave outside your area. Wash off the sand and step onto a towel on the fitted sheet to keep all the sand out of your space!

Plastic Baggie for Phone

This might be simple, but it might be the most important one on this list. Phones aren't cheap anymore. It doesn't matter if you have your phone in a case or protected. Just keep it away from the sand and saltwater.

Downward Drinking Beach Bum

Not everyone is going to bring a large full body lounge chair to the beach. Those who do can enjoy the wonder of drinking through a straw while laying on their stomach, face down. Just think of the possibilities...

Lunch in a Cup, Fork as Straw

You never want to end a walk on the beach. Hunger is inevitable, so why not prepare for it? A picnic basket or brown bag is going to have to be carried, awkwardly, by someone. What can you do?

Put your lunch in a cup and easily bring the appropriate utensil in the straw holder! Bring a salad, pasta, soup, smoothie, granola bars or anything else you can fit in the cup. Eat freely!

Photo Frame for Beach Photos

Consider bringing a photo frame on your beach day if you enjoy taking photos at the beach! You might get some strange stares, but you will get some great photos!

Bring a Shower Curtain

This is a great trick for helping your small children stay safe and cool! Afraid to let them into the surf? Dig a hole in the sand, put the shower curtain over the hole and add water for an instant small swimming pool! Bring the bath toys for some extra fun.

We want to make your stay at the Pearl Beach Inn as comfortable as possible. Please let us know if we can do anything for you!
