5 Tips for a Perfect Day at Rosewood Beach

June 22, 2021

Summer is officially here, and what’s better than spending a perfect day at Rosewood Beach? Consider these helpful tips to plan your trip:

Sun Protection
Did you know it takes about 30-minutes for sunscreen to soak into your skin? Always apply sunscreen before heading off for a beach day in the sun. Reapply sunscreen every two hours, especially if you’re spending most of your time swimming. Get in the habit of adding a fresh coat every time you towel-dry.

Hydration is Key
Anytime you are in the sun for long periods, it’s important to keep your body hydrated. Encourage everyone to have a glass or two of water before heading to the beach. Be sure to bring along a cooler full of water to stay hydrated throughout the day.

Light Snacks
Bring snacks to the beach to stay energized. Fresh watermelon, strawberries, and blueberries are excellent snacks, and their high-water content helps keep your body hydrated.

Bring the Essentials
Bring a large umbrella, sunglasses, hat or even a beach tent to provide a shady escape from the hot sun. Don’t forget lots of beach towels. Not only do they help keep you dry, but they keep you warm if you get chilled from the cold lake water.

Fun Activities for All
Whether it’s shovels and pails for the kids to build sandcastles, a football for a game of catch, or a good book to dive into, don’t forget to pack fun activities for everyone in your party. These extra activities will keep the beach fun going for hours.
