First aid kit
The first aid kit should be your priority and number one among the essential things you take to the beach. Like every outdoor activity, spending time on the beach can be risky or unexpected accidents could happen.

Prepare gauze, patch or tweezers in case you hurt your leg or stand on the urchin. Take some medicine against pain until you get to the hospital.
