The beach is one of the funnest places in the world
Nobody wants to go to the beach with their valuables and then leave without them. It definitely ruins the experience and is costly and time-consuming to replace. You go to the beach to enjoy snacks and have fun in the sun! Nobody wants to spend the rest of their day blocking cards rather than just doing their post-beach routine. So, let’s see how to keep your valuables safe.

Leave Them At Home
Sigh. Yes, we know this is a lame one. But it is the most secure way to avoid your valuables getting stolen from the beach! Or at least limit what you bring only to the bare necessities. After all, you are going to the beach to enjoy yourself, not constantly worrying about your things. If you don’t need it, then don’t bring it.

Ask People To Watch Them
Another obvious, but effective one is to make friends with people on the beach. Ask the people sitting close to you to keep an eye out for your things. This will make it much more likely for them to speak up if they see a random stranger rummaging through your things.

Hollowed Out Book
We know this one will probably hurt a lot of book lovers. However, this is a really creative idea of how to hide your prized possessions at the beach. Take a really big book (that you don’t hold dear to your heart) and hollow it out. Thieves, other than the book thief, don’t really search out to take someone’s books at the beach. That’s why this is the perfect disguise.

Hide It In a (Clean) Diaper
No thief will be reaching for a dirty diaper. Diapers are a great place to hide your belongings as they can fit quite a lot. Take an unused diaper and crumple it up a bit, you know make it look used, rough, and well, in general, dirty and used. Then just neatly pack all your things inside. But what to do if you don’t have a child and having a random diaper on your towel looks very out of place? Then put your things in an old newspaper or a dirty plastic bag with trash.

Hollow Out A Sunscreen Bottle
This is an easy hack, that definitely won’t bring attention to your belongings. You can make this at home or buy hollowed-out bottles online. Just cut the (empty) sunscreen at the bottom of it and slip in your valuables. It can easily hold keys, money, and cards. While it may not hold all types of phones, you can experiment with a bottle-size variety.

Put Them In The Cooler
Most of us like to snack on the beach, so a cooler is always with us. So, why not put them in some extra work? Nobody expects your valuables to be in the cooler. Stick in your keeps, phone, money, and so on in a small towel or plastic bag and stick them in your cooler. The towel or bag will prevent them from getting wet.

Get Yourself A Beach Vault
Well, if you really want to protect your things, you can also get a mini vault. After all, these things were invented for such purposes. There are plenty of mini beach vaults you can put all your things in and lock them. There are some safes that you can lock onto your umbrella, chair, cooler, or something heavy that can’t be moved. There are even some you drill into the sand.
