Going on a summer vacation unprepared can spoil your fun before your trip has even begun. For example, forgetting to bring your sunblock can prevent you from enjoying the beach to the fullest, while leaving behind your cellphone might mean not having any photos to take home with you as memories from your trip. We asked our Facebook fans to share their top summer essentials. Read on to find out what some of them said.

Your eyes need protection too! Don’t forget to bring a pair of sunglasses  so that you can lounge around comfortably by the beach.

Your vacation won’t be complete if you don't document it with photos, so don’t forget to bring your camera. It's handy for taking unlimited jump shots with your friends as well as selfies.

Some resorts are strict with swimming attire, so bring proper swimwear with you. Show off the beach-ready body you've been working on for the past months.
