Personal belongings can be a liability at the beach. Besides the risk of sand and water damage, there's also the chance your stuff can get stolen. Instead of fretting about your things, lock them up in The Beach Vault, which offers a little underground vessel to keep all your important items.

Shaped like a screw, the container—priced at about $70—can be rotated deep into the sand. It includes a special towel with a hole that lines up with the vault. Once the vault is secured and filled, you can screw on the top and place the included pillow over it. The nondescript container is now hidden and safe from sunlight, sand, animals, and any other factors that might break your belongings.
