Or shop around the boardwalks and beach towns once you arrive to pack your bag with all of the essential items.

Beach chairs and umbrellas are also available for rent on various Delaware beaches or for purchase at locations such as; Sunsations in Bethany Beach or up and down the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk

2. Beach towel and blanket to keep your feet cool, to enjoy a picnic on the beach or to lie out in the sand.
