Whether you hop on the Jitney to Montauk, cruise up the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu, or jet off somewhere fabulous like the Maldives, there’s a good chance you’ll go to the beach at least once this summer.

From fun floats to chic beach chairs, and everything in between, here are 13 beach accessories design fanatics—and beach bums—will love.

Or pick up Ginger & Gilligan’s sun tent for a fraction of the price.
