Beach day essentials: A round towel, fit for friends. Our trusty SPF. The latest book club pick. An oversize straw hat and a reusable water bottle to keep our La Croix chilled. The only thing missing? Drake’s latest album lulling us into a sun-induced midday nap. Sure, we could rely on our phones to pump out tunes, but sand plus electronics? Not ideal.

Luckily, we’ve finally found the perfect solution: The SunnyLife Beach Speaker

From the outside, it looks kind of like a retro radio (or at least one that’s gotten a chic makeover). There are volume controls, a tuning dial and option to scan both AM/FM radio and a bluetooth connection. But the inside is the reason it’s so great.

Once you pop open the clasp, you’ll find a little Velcro pocket that will hold your smartphone safe and sound. Although it’s not waterproof (so you can’t use it while swimming), it is fully protective against sand, sun and any lingering moisture from your recent dip.

Plus, it comes in adorable colors and prints, from cherries and palm prints to mint green and sorbet orange. Let’s just say, this speaker will quickly make an appearance on the ’Gram.
