Use soft coolers

At Healthy Lunch, you'll find the best soft-sided coolers to carry your fresh food and drinks.

The Grey Mosaic Soft Cooler

First of all, it is made of polyester fabric, cotton and aluminum that reinforces the coating of its compartment. This way, it can carry any lunch and keep it cool for 6 hours.

Use lunch bags

If you don't like coolers, the lunch bag can be particularly useful and we suggest two models.

The Tropical Multicolor Lunch Bag

This lunch bag with exotic patterns will be a perfect equipment on beaches like the Virgin Island in Finistère.

To seduce you, it embeds a summery design and a totally thermal interior. It is therefore efficient to carry yoghurts, fresh salads without the ambient temperature altering their quality. Moreover, the container is easy to carry thanks to its soft shoulder strap and its ergonomic dimensions. These include a length of 18 cm, a width of 18 cm and a height of 23 cm.

If the beach is a few hours away from your home, you can load your food and take it with you. Your drinks and food will keep their freshness for at least 6 hours. In addition, the lunch bag offers an excellent user experience with its scratch closure and wrinkle resistance.

Use stainless steel water bottles

If you are a lover of homemade cocktails or smoothies, you can indulge yourself by carrying them in a stainless steel water bottle. Here are two models from our store for you.

The Colorful Flowers Stainless Steel Flask

The design of this gourd perfectly matches the atmosphere you will find on French beaches. It is elegant and can keep drinks cold for a whole day in its 500 ml capacity.

This is a thermal performance that it owes to its stainless steel inner wall. On the other hand, the insulated bottle is BPA-free, which means that its contents will always taste great. We do not forget to mention that it has a tightly sealed cap that prevents any kind of leakage.

The Adorable Rabbit Stainless Steel Bottle

In addition to the coolers or other insulated boxes mentioned above, there are other simple ways to transport your meals to the beach.

The picnic basket for a light transport

A picnic basket is a timeless piece of equipment that can carry any type of food. This is the case with our Black Picnic Basket: See the product.

Made from 600D Oxford, it is a tote bag that has a large 32-liter compartment. It's also lightweight with a weight of 660g and you can move it around using its two attached handles. The other feature of the basket is that it is waterproof, which means that water from the beach cannot damage it.

Aluminum foil for classic transportation

While some people like to carry their food in newspaper or cardboard, others largely prefer aluminum foil. However, if you are tempted by this alternative, we advise you to reinforce it with napkins. Indeed, wrapping your food in aluminum foil is not enough to ensure a comfortable transport.

Also, paper is not a great way to stop heat loss if you want to eat hot at the beach. So a towel is necessary to add an extra touch of comfort and insulation to your food.

Here we are at the end of our guide. We sincerely hope it has turned you into a true expert on successfully moving your food to the beach. Between lunch boxes, coolers, stainless steel water bottles and baskets, the choices are quite rich. Just select the food box that best suits your needs for the beach.
