Three Fun Beach Activities for This Summer

At Solartex, we're always looking for new ways to help you have some good old-fashioned fun in the sun. We think sunlight is good for the soul, and there are few better ways to spend a summer afternoon than under the summer sun at a beautiful beach. For this blog, we're going to detail three fun activities you can put to use this summer that are sure to supercharge your beach day - just be sure to play it safe and always bring a sunsuit or other UV-protective clothing.

Easy Chair Strap

Everyone loves to have chairs to sit in at the beach, but carrying them is a huge hassle. Thankfully, this simple trick makes lugging them a much easier prospect. All you need is a dog leash - you can weave the leash into the frame of the chair then clip it to itself to make an easy carrying strap. No more sore hands!

Retrofit Your Towel

A beach towel is an invaluable companion, but it often leaves much to be desired when trying to protect fragile items from the sand. Thankfully, there's an easy fix that can greatly improve your towel's functionality - give it pockets! You'll need to do this before you leave and you'll need a needle and thread for the process. Simply fold the towel over along one edge, creating as deep of pockets as you want. Stitch the two edges together at either end of the towel, then stitch in dividers to make pockets - viola! This will keep small valuables safe from sand and sun.

Light Up the Night

There's no reason to leave just because the sun is setting - you can use bottled candles to light up the beach during dinner! All you need are bottles, candles, and sand. Simply fill the bottles partway with sand, stick the candles into the sand for support, light, and you've got an adorable way to keep your dinner spot lit.
