Where to hide your phone on the beach


If you’re head­ing to the beach alone, it’s best not to take any­thing of val­ue with you at all. But this is not always pos­si­ble. To pro­tect your phone from theft, you have to be resource­ful.

Here are some tips to help pro­tect your smart­phone and oth­er valu­ables from theft.

Sunscreen jar

A wide plas­tic jar left over from sham­poo or sun­screen can be turned into a makeshift safe for small items. It is unlike­ly to attract the atten­tion of a beach thief (unless he him­self has read sim­i­lar arti­cles).

You can cut off the bot­tom of the bot­tle, make a long cut on the side, or cut out the part of the body that is hid­den under the cap. The main thing is that the result of such manip­u­la­tions be as incon­spic­u­ous as pos­si­ble.

It is best to hide valu­ables in a jar in advance, and not just before going into the water, so as not to attract atten­tion to your­self. Also, instead of a can, you can use a dis­pos­able cup from cof­fee or anoth­er drink.

Pack of wet wipes

One of the most inter­est­ing options is to put your smart­phone in a pack of wet wipes. For cred­i­bil­i­ty, you can cov­er it with nap­kins on both sides. Mois­ture in wipes will not harm your gad­get, unless they are impreg­nat­ed with some kind of par­tic­u­lar­ly aggres­sive anti­sep­tic. But a thief is unlike­ly to guess to delve into a pack in search of valu­ables.

A book

The good old clas­sic is a cache carved into the pages of a paper book. From a secu­ri­ty point of view, this method is ambigu­ous. At first glance, few peo­ple would think of look­ing for a smart­phone inside a book. On the oth­er hand, a thief may try to check the book for notes hid­den between the pages, and find a trea­sure in it. Yes, and books spoil some­how bad. In gen­er­al, use this method with cau­tion.

Stash in the sand

The most con­tro­ver­sial method On the one hand, in this case you do not need any addi­tion­al items — just put your valu­ables in a bag and dig them in the sand in a seclud­ed place.

On the oth­er hand, such a cache can­not be called reli­able. If a per­son starts walk­ing along the beach and dig­ging in the sand before enter­ing the water, it is quite obvi­ous that he is try­ing to hide some­thing. And if a thief is watch­ing the area, he will not leave it unat­tend­ed. And then you will dig up the entire beach in search of your things, which have not been there for a long time. So the method with a hid­ing place in the sand is only suit­able for desert­ed beach­es, where no one will fol­low your manip­u­la­tions on the shore.

An alter­na­tive option is to bury your valu­ables in the sand right under your beach tow­el. But this is unlike­ly to be done com­plete­ly unno­ticed by oth­ers.

Take things with you

Per­haps there is no more reli­able way than to take your smart­phone and oth­er valu­ables with you into the water. This is where a com­pact water­proof case can help you. Water­proof cas­es with a shoul­der strap per­form well — they prac­ti­cal­ly do not inter­fere with swim­ming. The only neg­a­tive is that if you wear such a cov­er all the time, then you will have a very pecu­liar tan line on your shoul­der. So don’t for­get to take it off when you land.

Unremarkable appearance

Dress casu­al­ly. Thieves often pay atten­tion to peo­ple who are dressed in rich brand­ed cloth­ing. If you show up on the beach in an unre­mark­able T‑shirt and shorts, you will most like­ly sim­ply be ignored.
