The warmth of the sun and clear blue skies above the shimmering ocean draws many visitors to St. Augustine beaches. The allure of cool sea spray flowing on summer breezes is hard for vacationers to resist. However, the city’s beaches can also be a welcomed piece of paradise to its residents. Locals can enjoy just as much of the sandy playground as the sunbathing tourists with some added supplies. Several businesses like Drifters and Barney’s Beach Service rent equipment that can make the most seasoned St. Augustinian see the beaches in a different light. And the best part? They’ll deliver all the beach essentials right to you.
As beautiful and fun as the beach is, it’s always a hassle to pack up all the umbrellas, chairs, towels, and toys that it takes to keep your family entertained all day. These services will take the fuss out of beach day and let your St. Augustine staycation start to feel a little more relaxing.
For the active staycationers, bike rentals are a fun way to take in the seaside scene from a new perspective. Pedaling across the wide expanse of seashell-riddled sand gives riders a chance to see more of the beach with little effort. The many restaurants dotting A1A offer bike riders places to recharge from their gallivanting with various delicious fare and soothing drinks. And if you’re searching for even more activity, shops like Ocean Extreme Sports will let you rent standup paddleboards.
Some of the most fun on St. Augustine beaches can be had by simply finding a perfect piece of sand and making it as comfortable as possible for a full day of sun, waves, and laughter. Renting a tent is a way to safely enjoy the brilliance of the beach without being overly exposed to the sun. Both large and small tents can be acquired to accommodate the needs of families and friends. To go along with the cool shade of the tents, beach chairs and coolers can also be rented. With the right choices of equipment, a tent on the beach can be an oasis of entertainment and relaxation.
But once you’ve had your time to relax, the beach, with its open space and endless cooling waters, is ideal for games. Games on the beach provide fun as well as a magnet to draw groups to interact more with one another. Golf Toss, horseshoes, and paddle ball are games of minimal accessories that make them easy to carry and set up. They are also games that can be played by all ages of adults and young children.
Beach equipment rentals can make each day of the summer a new staycation destination.
