Oh I adore the jersey shore!! We go every summer.
Last summer was my first trip to the beach with my ostomy, I also wear the Mio 2 piece with adhesive coupling. I found this appliance to be great for the beach because the wafer has no tape as is already waterproof on its own. The only thing extra I used were the Brava strips for a little more security.
I packed so many bags because I thought with the beach I would be changing everyday. I only changed once on vacation and then again the day we got home and that was over 7 days! Besides the strips I didn't find I needed anything extra.
I wore a tankini and the bag was very discreet. We pack up in the morning and spend all day at the beach. I had no issues in the sun or heat. Although we do usually setup a beach umbrella bc I'm not a huge sunbather but was in the ocean each day.
Have fun! I'm jealous I still have 3 months until my trip!
