SAFEGO Review: A Portable Safe for the Beach

The beach is supposed to be the place where we get to relax and be free, but when we bring our wallets and phones with us, we always end up anchored to our beach blankets, afraid to leave our valuables alone. If you have ever tried hiding them underneath a towel or beach bag, you know how nerve-wracking it is to always keep one eye on the sand when you’re trying to enjoy the waves. Maybe you’re even the person who always volunteers to stay back and “watch the stuff” while the others go off without you. If so, I’m happy to inform you that those days are over thanks to this portable safe.

SAFEGO is a durable and portable safe that’s perfect for keeping valuables locked away no matter where you go. It’s big enough to fit a couple of phones, wallets, and some sunglasses, and you can use either the combination lock or a key to open it. Whether you want to go for a long walk without bringing everything with your or just fall asleep without the fear of being robbed, it’s the best peace of mind you can buy.


Price and Where to Buy SAFEGO: It’s currently available for $39.95 on Amazon and the SAFEGO website. 

How SAFEGO Rates:

  • Usefulness: 9/10. It’s easy to set the lock and secure the safe to a beach chair with the cable, and there’s even an ear-plug opening so you can keep listening to music when your phone is locked away. However, the safe is not 100% waterproof and water will get inside if it’s submerged.
  • Value: 8/10. For $39.95 it’s not a bargain, but it’s cheaper than some of the other portable safes on the market. Besides, when it comes to keeping your valuables from being stolen, you shouldn’t mind paying more for a quality safe.
  • Portability: 9/10. It’s pretty light for its size and its easy to carry around by the chord.
  • Cool Factor: 6/10. Though it comes in a variety of colors, its design is bulky in order to fit more inside.

Final Verdict:

The SAFEGO is a functional and portable safe that’s not only perfect for trips to the beach, but could also be used in hotel rooms and hostels. Though I wouldn’t go dunking it underwater, the hard plastic shell of the safe and the steel cable locking mechanism are very sturdy.
