Beach Essentials:

Basking under the sun, on a beach chair and relaxing to the sounds of crashing waves comes with a few tasks. Here are a few things one should always have when on a ‘beach day’.

  • Always apply suitable sunscreen to avoid any skin burns or allergies that could later prove detrimental to your skin.
  • Carry extra beach clothes for an unplanned yet irresistible dip in the emerald water
  • Towel is a must to shake off the sand off from your feet
  • A hat, cap or shades just add to the vibe honestly
  • Flip-flops are always recommended because it makes it easier on the beach
  • Carry an extra bag to keep your belongings like smartphones, keys etc
  • Some beverages and snacks could be nice too but make sure to carry a trash bag and not litter the beach
  • Last but not the least, phone with enough memory because capturing the beauty for the mems is a must!

While these beaches are amongst the cleanest beaches in India, there is one commonality that binds it all together – the wish to never leave. The calmness it brings is purely refreshing and it often reminds of these famous lines from the iconic travel movies of all times –Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara:

Neeli neeli si khamoshiyaan

Na kahin hai zameen

Na kahin aasmaan

Sirf main hoon meri saansein hain aur meri dhadkanein

Aisi gehraiyaan…

(if loosely translated -The blue silence, were there is no land or no sky, there is only my breath, my heartbeat…such are these depths)

Aren’t these just pristine and irresistible? Plan your beach day soon and tell us your favourite one!
