Which beach cooler with speakers is the best?

Going to the beach for a day of fun with family and friends usually means carrying a few things to your chosen location. No one likes multi-trips to the vehicle on the hot sand of the beach, so you either have to move quickly or haul as much as you can in one go.

It’s not always practical, but you can carry the two most important things at the same time: your cooler and your speakers. You can stack them on top of each other, but it’s best to just get a drink cooler that has built-in speakers.
