Amazon bestsellers previously seen on TODAY

Ekouaer Swimsuit Beach Cover-Up Shirt

This stylish cover-up functions as so much more. While it’s perfect for your next beach trip, you can also throw on a pair of denim shorts and sandals and head out the door on any given day in this top. The bestseller is made from a blend of rayon and spandex that will keep you cool regardless of the style you opt for, whether you want to keep the tie-dye trend alive or choose a solid print. It’s amassed over 17,000 verified five-star reviews from shoppers who have called it soft and “perfect for summer.”

Funkymonkey EVA Comfort Slides

Buckle sandals have been trending for quite some time now, and the go-to shoe is the perfect companion for everything from quick errand runs to beach trips. The affordable slides are the bestselling women’s flat sandals on Amazon for a reason — they look expensive but at just $23 a pair, you can grab multiple without breaking the bank. You can find them in a variety of colors and designs, but expect the same comfortable, lightweight feel (and arch support!) with every step.

YoulerTex Microfiber Hair Towel (Pack of 2)

Whether your locks are curly or straight, your summer hair will thank you for using a microfiber towel instead of the cotton ones in your linen closet. Not only are microfiber towels like this one 10 times more absorbent than cotton towels (according to the brand), but they also help reduce frizz, regardless of length. The convenient loop and lock system will also keep your hair in place as you get ready for the day, so you can streamline your morning routine. The best part? You can snag a pack of two for just $13.

Esarora Ice Roller

This bestselling ice roller is a multi-tasking tool that not only helps to depuff tired skin, but can also calm the skin after a sunburn and reduce the appearance of pores. All you need to do is toss it in the freezer, apply your favorite cream to clean skin and start rolling! The roller head is easily washable with soap and water, so you can reuse it over and over again for the desired results.

Sport-Brella Versa-Brella SPF 50+ Adjustable Umbrella

Lugging your beach chair across the sand is already enough of a hassle, and watching your umbrella fly away on a windy day at the beach might be even worse. This innovative beach umbrella is a game-changer and holds the No. 1 spot in camping sun shelters on Amazon, making it not only a perfect pick for lounging outdoors but also for the golf course (Father’s Day is fast approaching!). The clamp-on shade can fit on virtually any beach chair or golf caddy for a little bit of shade when you need it most thanks to the 360-degree swivel.

Isopho Waterproof Beach Blanket

Whether you’re headed to the beach or to the park, a blanket is a must — and this one checks off all of the boxes! It can fit up to five adults at once and, thanks to the nylon fabric, is water- and sandproof. Although it is large, it weighs less than one pound and conveniently folds up into its own carrying bag that you can toss right into your beach bag. It is available in six colors that you can easily spot on the beach on your way back from the water — all for less than $20.
