    My most coveted beach accessory is also my best camping, shopping and picnic accessory! My sunglasses! I don’t have any that are the fantastic quality of KREWE du Optic. I adore the round shape, (thank you John Lennon)! Winning this pair would showcase my individual style!

    My most coveted accessory is my hat. Totally necessary for sun shade coverage to keep my face in the shade..

    I have to agree with the ladies above. I cannot hit the beach without my sunglasses. They are my most coveted beach accessory.

    My most coveted beach accessory is my beach towel! It’s huge! And it folds right into itself which turns into a bag for easy carrying!

    Since I live at the beach and go just about everyday when the weather permits, I have to say my broad brimmed beach hat with SPF 50. It is essential–keeping my face and shoulders in the shade. I would be a wrinkled, sunburnt beach bum without it!

    My most coveted beach accessory is my hat to keep my head shielded and in the shade.

    As a Florida Panhandle resident, my most coveted beach accessory is my SPF 30 sunscreen! With beautiful sunshine and risk for sunburn/UV 8-10 months of the year this is the best accessory and needed nearly everyday; second would be eyewear!

    Sunscreen is my favorite beach accessory!!🏖

    My most coveted beach accessory is absolutely my sunnies! They are must because they not only protect my eyes but they help me feel stylish with my bikini & salty beach hair. Fun in the sun!

    My most coveted beach accessory is a very thick book by one of my favorite authors! Can’t beat reading in the sun by the waves. 🙂

    My most coveted beach accessory would be family… Plus a good sunscreen and sun glasses; can’t beat a great day with family at a beautiful beach!!!

    Sunglasses, because I have very fair blue eyes and without sunglasses, I can barely open my eyes due to sensitivity to light. Those sunglasses of yours would do me a world of good 😎

  15. Anne Corrao

    My sunglasses.

    I would have to say that my most coveted beach accessory is definitely a super stylish and fun, yet equally functional beach tote! Not only does it complete the beachgoer look, but it is essential for carrying all the other beach necessities – beach towel, hat, sunnies, a book, coverup, and sunscreen!

    A margarita. On the rocks.
    No need to explain why. 🍹

    Sunscreen! As a freckled, pale redhead it is the most important summer accessory for me! Cute sunnies, a floppy hat and a good book follow closely, but those will all fade into the past eventually. I have to keep my skin healthy first!

    Like most people, I use a high-SPF religiosly. Not exactly an olfactory delight! My favorite beach accessory is a little tube of Bain du Soliel orange gelee (SPF 4!), which I dab on my pulse points on top of SPF 50. I add a wee bit under my nose as well (!),and it never fails to remind me of family summers at the shore. Transformative!

  20. Caroline Olson

    My most coveted beach accessory is my SPF 50! A sunburn makes the beach very unenjoyable…

    My most coveted beach accessory is a blue LA dodgers baseball cap I found at the thrift store! It looks so classic and all-American on the beach. It always kooks great with all the white I wear in the summertime!

    May 4, 2016 at 2:14 pm
  22. Kathie

    Sunscreen! Oh wait, that is a daily essential. How about my most fab coveted summer accessory is a Wizard of Oz beach towel my Dad gave me back in 1993. It goes to every beach that I have been in the States as well as abroad. ❤️ it!

    Sunglasses are definitely my must have beach accessory. Macular degeneration runs in my family and the sun can really increase your chances of developing the disease. When I’m out on any sunny day I like to make sure I have my sunglasses handy.

    May 4, 2016 at 2:30 pm
  24. Megan

    While sunnies are a vital item that I always bring to the beach, my most coveted accessory is the perfect cover up to use for long walks on the beach.

    I Live in South Florida and the beach is my weekend escape in the summer. My beach essential is a caddy with wheels which holds all the essentials, chairs, umbrella, drinks, towels, sunscreen etc…

    These are so amazing

    My favorite beach accessory and most necessary is our parachute blanket!! It is held down by sand in the corners and tucks away in a little bag. Great for getting some sun without the sand!

    May 4, 2016 at 3:19 pm

    As a current college student majoring in Biology, I’ve learned far too much about the sun’s harmful effects to not make SPF 50 my go-to beach accessory. Gotta lather up that sunscreen!!

    May 4, 2016 at 3:26 pm
  30. Chase

    Beach towel, cooler, and sunglasses

    May 4, 2016 at 3:28 pm

    My most coveted beach accessory would definitely be my mumu from Show Me Your Mumu. They come in so many bright prints I can never get enough. They are great on their own or with a pair of worn in cutoff shorts. I never hit the beach without my mumus!

    May 4, 2016 at 3:35 pm

    I love my sarong that has multitasked as a skirt, a beach dress, a shawl, an impromptu beach blanket and in the dead of winter, a scarf to remind me that warm weather is not that far away.

    May 4, 2016 at 3:51 pm
  33. Cheri Jones

    My very favorite beach accessory is my sunglasses! I think sunglasses always make such a great fashion statement, while also protecting your eyes from bright sunlight. I am on the beach every day and I need these sunglasses in my life! They are beautiful! 😎💙

    May 4, 2016 at 4:43 pm
  34. Nicole

    My most coveted beach accessories are the people with me at the beach! Whether it be friends, family or strangers, a day at the beach is always influenced by the people surrounding you, and everyone knows beach people are the best people!

    May 4, 2016 at 5:02 pm
  35. Monica

    Sunscreen of course! I love being in the sun, but its so important to take care of your skin too.

    May 4, 2016 at 5:27 pm

    My most coveted accessory….my IPod. Tunes my way with my Brooks tennis shoes to walk miles and miles for hours and hours.

    May 4, 2016 at 5:31 pm
  37. Alexandra

    My most coveted beach accessory is my cooler full of beers and snacks! Love to sit on the beach with friends eating, drinking, laughing, and taking in that sun. A great pair of sunglasses are essential to that mix! I’m also on a sailboat almost everyday and won’t leave the dock unless I have my sunnies!

    May 4, 2016 at 5:33 pm

  39. Maggie

    My mom! We always have fantastic conversations on our beach walks.

    May 4, 2016 at 6:19 pm

    My beach umbrella is my coveted beach accessory!

    May 4, 2016 at 6:31 pm
  41. Laura Young

    My favorite place, favorite beaches of all, are on the Emerald Coast. I can spend all day at the beach with nothing but a bikini; YOLO boarding, bodysurfing, and relaxing doing beach yoga; but, I’ve got to have those shades. Are KREWE du Optics in the little shops of 30A? Those KREWE du Optics are my essential, most coveted beach accessory. 😎🌴🏄

    May 4, 2016 at 6:39 pm
  42. Benita Hayes

    SPF. Why? Because I’ve seen what’s at the early bird dinner special. Take care of your skin. Please!!!

    May 4, 2016 at 7:01 pm
  43. Tom Pelton

    Wow awesome shades.

    May 4, 2016 at 7:19 pm
  44. Annie

    My book! Stephen King said it best, “Books are a uniquely portable magic.” I can disapper into a book while on the beach all afternoon!

    May 4, 2016 at 9:34 pm
  45. 2mini2

    My cute kids….although these stylish sunglasses would be a close second!

    Honey bunny, let me tell you something funny, punny and sentence runny- I always wear my sunnies

    Whether it’s a parade
    Drinking lemonade
    Getting my hair cut into a fade
    I’ve always got my shades

    Not my towel
    Nor my tunes
    Not my sandals
    Nor my bathing costume

    I love you my home-lassies
    But I covet my sunglasses

    May 4, 2016 at 10:56 pm
  47. Renee Davis

    My most coveted beach accessory is my eye protection. I wear contact lenses so the sun, sand, and sea act like bright spotlights shining directly into my eyes. I live on the beach so good eye protection is essential for the health of my eyes. I love super cute eyewear.

    May 5, 2016 at 6:58 am
  48. Betsy Solomon

    Tough to pick 1. Would have to say sunglasses. Next, flip flops. Third, comfy camping chair to lounge in ALL DAY.
