If you enjoy being on the water, then you have found a home at The Cloisters of West Tawakoni. But you don’t have to be on the boat to enjoy it. Take the family down to the beach area, catch a few rays, and enjoy the lake differently. Here are some tips for you on things to bring to make your beach day fun:
Bring a tube or a noodle or a lounger and float away. Floaties are an awesome way to relax as you listen to the overlapping waves and wind whooshing through the trees. They’re great for kids to play around with and adults to chill in the water with them.
Every once in a while you’ll wanna get out of the water and soak up some sun. There’s plenty of sand to pull up a beach towel and get your tan on. Maybe bring an extra soft, fluffy towel to dry off.
Maybe you want to sit and watch the kids play. Bring a chair (and maybe an umbrella for a little shade) and sit beachside as you watch everyone enjoy their fun in the sun.
Having a cool drink on a hot day is so refreshing, so don’t forget to bring a cooler with lots of ice. We all know how Texas heat can overwhelm you. Pack in some bottled water, sodas, and a few “cold ones” and you’re set! We know that beer is the official drink of lake time, so please drink/swim responsibly.
Necessary to keep all those drinks cold! There’s nothing like a cold drink in the hot sun. The foldable style of koozie takes up less space in your beach bag so more room for snacks!
Perhaps the most important part of a successful lake day is packing some yummy snacks. You’ll get hungry if you’re there all afternoon.
We are all about fun and relaxation when it comes to the lake, but don’t forget your sunscreen. Sunburns are not fun or relaxing! Put it on 30 minutes to an hour before you get in the sun (BEFORE you start sweating or get wet). Reapply after swimming and toweling off.
While there are trash receptacles around the lake, you don’t want to get out of your comfy spot every time you need to throw something away. We recommend bringing a couple of trash bags 1) for your trash and 2) to put your wet beach clothes in.
While we may have covered just about everything you need to have a great day at the beach of Lake Tawakoni, here are a few more items you might need:
The best thing about living next to a lake is you have access to the water any time you want it. So, as one of the many things you can do at The Cloisters of West Tawakoni, don’t forget to enjoy the lake beach!
