Girls, how to make my naturally curly hair look alright on the beach?

i usually straighten it but obviously my hair will go back to its crazy poofy self once i jump in the water. Tying it up in a bun wouldve been preferable if only my ears werent huuuuuge xD
so i need help, what do i do with it? It looks really hot when its very wet but horrible when even half wet. Would love to be those type of girls that let it loose all the time at the beach but thats not possible for me :(
is there anyway to keep it straight or wavy after it gets wet and dries up?
