SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - When June Gloom gives way to sunshine, it's time to head to San Diego's beaches for summer fun.

Naturally, you'll need to pack a towel, sunscreen, and your trunks or bikini. You might want to include a new gadget from our list of favorites.

Whether you're looking for a super cooler or portable shade, you'll find plenty of options.

Dakine's party bucket has an insulated main compartment with a mesh bottom that becomes a cooler when you put it in a 5-gallon bucket. Your suds and sodas will stay cool in eight coozies. There's also room for a wine bottle and snacks in an interior pocket.
