Planning a beach picnic

We have put together three awesome tips and tricks that will come in handy when you are planning a beach picnic.

Spending an entire day at the beach is fun for the whole fam – that is, until tummies start grumbling and kiddos start complaining. Packing an awesome beachy meal will help keep everyone happy so they can hit the waves, play in the sand or give it they’re all in a game of volleyball.

And as you can see from the picture of our Bondi Beach accommodation, you are going to want to spend a load of time on the beach, especially considering it is right on your doorstep!

Cool It
If your picnic includes anything with meat, mayonnaise, cheese, other dairy products or perishables, be sure to pack them in a cooler with plenty of ice. Take them out of the cooler right at meal time, not before.

Picnic baskets are great for the stuff that doesn’t need to be kept cool — paper towels, tablecloth, paper plates and napkins, silverware and serving utensils.

Keep it Clean
To help keep sand out of your food, bring along a blanket, beach chairs, paper towels and hand wipes. You could also wrap sandwiches in wax or parchment paper, so everyone can just peel it back as they eat, keeping those sandy beach hands off the food.

BYOS (Bring Your Own Shade)
Munching on tasty foods isn’t much fun if you’re blinded by the light or too hot to be comfortable. Take a big beach umbrella with you, and remember hats, sunglasses and sunscreen. Get to the site early if you have anyone who is sun sensitive so you have the best chance of getting those coveted shady spots under trees or pavilions.

On a closing note, we would like to give a shout out and say thank you to Tablespoon for sharing these great tips.
