If you’re anything like us, you know that the cherry on top of the summer sundae is kicking it by the pool with a fruity drink. That’s why we’ve rounded up all of our favorite, most IG-worthy pool accessories — from floating pool lights to pool floats for adults — to help you celebrate the sun the right way. Splish splash.
This one can keep you afloat four ways — lounging, sitting, drifting, or bobbing. It has a mesh center with two inflatable pillows at either end. Fill it up with the included air pump for pool time or lie down on the mesh shell and enjoy the sun. ($13.99+, Amazon)
Live your best Barbie life with this oversized tube float decked out in a groovy orange and pink print. It has a cupholder for your poolside beverage, and customers say it’s super easy to fill and deflate. ($39, Funboy)
Planning a pool bash? These floating cupholders are a must. You’ll get a pack of eight different floaties so your guests can keep track of their drinks. Just fill them up with the included pump and you’re ready to go. ($12.99, Amazon)
Nothing says “summertime” like a swim-up bar. This drink cabana comes outfitted with four cupholders and two coolers that can hold fresh drinks and ice. Plus, there’s a fabric shade that’ll keep the bevs out of direct sunlight. ($99, Funboy)
Because they deserve to lounge in style like the good boy or girl they are. The puffy white cloud has an adorable rainbow arch design, and they’ll have enough room to sit or lie down in between dips in the pool. For the ultimate photo op, snag the human-sized version, too. Sounds like paw-idise. ($59, Funboy)
Snag this floating toy that comes with six rings and a cute flamingo design to spark a little friendly pool-party competition. ($11.97+, Amazon)
This six-foot-long table can hold 10 cups on either side, and has cooler space in the middle to keep the players well-supplied. Plus, there are four cupholders in the middle so onlookers can cheer hands-free. ($27.99, Amazon)
When the sun sets, but the guests stay, throw these light-up balls in the pool for a literal glow-up. Buy them individually or in packs with up to six balls each. ($7.99+, Amazon)
Sometimes you want to lounge in the pool without actually getting wet. We hear you. This raft will keep you as dry as you want to be, thanks to its super secure design. It has a built-in pillow, cupholder, and rounded sides to keep the waves at bay. Snag it in the standard size for single use, or get the extra large one for you and a friend (and maybe some chips and dip, too). ($34.99+, Amazon)
Get your camera ready, because this thing is a floating photo op. It’s metallic rose gold and has little flecks of glitter floating around that shimmer under the sun. All that’s left to do is grab your glass and sip. ($45.50, Sunnylife)
Have some responsible fun with these no-waste, no-plastic water balloons. These come in a pack of 16 and are made from safe, kid-friendly silicone. They’re super durable and fill up in seconds. Let the games begin. ($25.99, Amazon)
No, this isn’t an actual pool float — but it’s designed to look just like one. So if your little ones can’t get down after swim time, this air mattress might do the trick. It has a soft center that adds a little cushion, plus a travel case so you can take it on vacay. Choose pink or blue…and fingers crossed for an easy bedtime. ($79+, Funboy)
