This is the most obvious yet sure fire way to protect your iPhone. Not a case that just covers the borders and back. The screen is the place most susceptible to damage and yet it is often the least protected part of a person’s phone.  Try a leather flip case which are cheap enough on  Amazon. There’s a few to consider but it’s recommended the thicker the better.  Some even come with free screen protectors.

Sand is a disease to a smartphone! Not only can it get into every nook and cranny, the particles can scratch the screen to pieces. Also wherever there is sand, there is a body of water nearby.
