Lucky for our shoulders, the days of carrying a heavy boom box around the boardwalk are long gone. But that doesn’t mean we want to be without our music blasting on our beach days. Enter the new and improved wireless, waterproof speakers. These three models are small but seriously mighty with high sound quality and a compact design that fits easily in our hand. Is it summer yet?

Editors’ Pick: Cambridge Soundworks Oontz Splashproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
- Won’t distort sound at max volume
- Unique triangular design enhances the sound quality
- Splash-proof, rainproof and dustproof
Sound is obviously important when it comes to a speaker. But the fact that we can bring this one to the beach and not have to worry about damaging it is a total game changer. One PureWow editor even packs this one for vacation, saying, “I love listening to music on the beach, but when I’m on vacation with friends, I hate being antisocial and using headphones. This speaker is light enough to pack in my carry-on, has great sound quality and is even waterproof, so I can turn up the volume or change the song fresh out of the ocean, dripping hands and all.”
Best Value: Ayl Portable Outdoor And Shower Bluetooth 4.1 Speaker
- 33 foot range
- Provides up to 12 hours of continuous playback
- Protected against low pressure water stream from any angle
We love playing music at the beach, but we also really love singing in the shower. This compact design can easily fit on a shelf or the ledge of our bathtub, meaning we never have to be without our Adele playlist. You’d never know this speaker was so tiny based on how loud it gets, which is probably a good thing for our neighbors (we definitely don’t sound like Adele).
Splurge-worthy: Jbl Charge 3 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
- Wirelessly connect up to 3 smartphones or tablets
- Provides 20 hours of playtime
- Charges phone and takes calls
Behold: The speaker for the tech-obsessed. This model is as small as a water bottle but wirelessy connects to three smartphones or tablets for 20 hours of playtime. But because playing music can drain your phone battery, it’s also equipped with USB ports to plug in a cable and keep your phone juiced up all day long. Our beach days will never be the same.
