This snack is convenient, mess-free, and provides sustained energy, making it ideal for long beach days.

A pre-made snack mix is a convenient option for the beach. You can buy a mix or create your own with pretzels, cheese crackers, nuts, sunflower seeds, and dried fruits. This mix is perfect for snacking throughout the day and is easy to share with friends and family.

7. Burrito

If you're at a beach in Baja, a burrito is a no brainer. With countless variations and styles of burritos, you can't really go wrong. Hit one of the local restaurant's and have them chef up a bomb burrito for your beach day. The Las Palma's staff cooks up a pretty mean burrito. Stop in and see for your self!

8. Cheese and Crackers

Cheese and crackers are a simple yet satisfying beach snack. Choose a variety of cheeses that hold up well in the heat, such as cheddar, gouda, or babybel. Pair them with whole-grain or seed crackers for a combination of protein, healthy fats, and carbs that will keep you full.

9. Chips and Salsa (Or Guac 🥑)

Chips and salsa are another Mexico vacation classic, so why not stock up for your beach day. The local sourced salsa with some fresh chips is a great beach snack. We'd also recommend some fresh guacamole. Why not both? They'll go great with your margi.

10. Energy Bars

Energy bars are a convenient snack that’s perfect for the beach. Choose bars made with natural ingredients, such as nuts, seeds, dried fruits, and whole grains. Look for bars that are high in protein and healthy fats to keep you energized throughout the day.

Including these snacks in your beach bag ensures that you have a variety of tasty, nutritious options to enjoy throughout your beach day. They are all mess-free, easy to pack, and provide the energy and hydration needed for a fun-filled day in the sun.
