I admit it's always made me a little nervous to leave stuff on the beach, but I do anyways. I love to swim, I love beaches, so I wouldn't let that ruin it for me. If nothing else, just bring el cheapo stuff with you, so if it does get stolen its not a problem. I've never had a problem with anyone touching my stuff. There's usually so many people around, no one would bother. I also keep an eye out from the water!!

Forgot to mention: I usually take a towel, sunglasses (I never buy expensive ones and they're usually funky so no one would want to steal them anyhow ), and sunblock. I sometimes carry it in a beach bag. Oh and beer. We usually bring beer.

Go in pairs... I tend to be someone who enjoys being in the water and most people I go with like ot lie on the beach.. so they tend to watch my stuff for me.. I have a pair of boardshorts that have waterproof pockets so I could technically put stuff in there.. but I don't.

My suggestion... flip flops. towel... and if you must have sunglasses (which I do) bring them into the water with you... even if you dive under you can always hold them in your hand... mine are Oakleys so they stick to my head even if I dive they stay on my head

Yeah, take cheapos and leave anything precious in safe storage at the hostel or train station or wherever.
