Pack the night before.
PB&J, sunscreen, water, baby wipes (Awesome at getting sunscreen residue & sand off of fingers before eating). Leave the xtra towels & clothes in the car. Get out as early as you can... In all honesty, they probably will want to be out of there by lunch time if you go early. Mine always do- we live 30 min from the beach.
Take a frisbee, ball, or diggers with you for little ones.
And GL- I hate going alone because my DD thinks she's big enough to go swimming alone, which she is NOT!!!
