Relaxing Beach Retreat? There’s An App For That

This article was originally published on the  Exclusive Resorts blog, the online destination for all things luxury travel, from the world’s leading private club for luxury vacations.

Nothing says luxury travel quite like a beach vacation. Relaxing on the sand, smelling the salt and the suntan lotion, listening to the sound of the waves in the background. From private villas in Puerto Vallarta to beachside retreats in the British Virgin Islands, Exclusive Resorts has plenty of options to offer the traveler craving some sun and surf.

Of course, a perfect beach day requires more than just a good beach read and a great big cushy towel. There’s logistics to be considered. From curating the perfect tan to making sure you stay well hydrated while you surf, swim and sunbathe. Fortunately, since nobody wants to do that much thinking while they’re on vacation, there’s a suite of apps out there to help you track your tanning, stay safe in the sun and make sure you’re drinking plenty of water — all so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your time at the beach.

UV Detector is an iPhone app that helps you have fun in the sun safely. It checks the UV index in your area, and gives you forecasts for the coming weeks, helping you plan and prepare for plenty of beach days to come. Similarly, the Environmental Protection Agency has apps for Android, iPhone and Blackberry that give you the official UV forecast on an easy-to-read scale of 1-11+.

If you’re not afraid of a little sun — or if you’re actually seeking some of it out — there’s Suntan Watcher, which helps you time your tan, and gives you helpful reminders for when to turn over, reapply lotion and the like. Once you’ve got your tan going, use Tan Plan for iPhone, to track the progress of your gorgeous glow and share it with your friends.

Of course, all that sunbathing means you have to stay hydrated. High-end water bottle maker Sigg has an app that helps you track your water intake during the day via a simple sliding scale measuring how much you’ve drank. There’s also an Android app that lets you input the amount of water you’d like to consumer over the course of a day, and sends you friendly reminders to actually do it. So, you can be sure to swap a few glasses of water in between all those delicious drinks with the tiny umbrellas. Cheers!
