Your 5 Best Beach Essentials

Your 5 Best Beach Essentials


Whether it’s a beach vacay or a day trip, other than what you’re wearing make sure you carry these 5 stylish essentials.

1. A funky towel

Ok so you might think we’re stating the obvious here but picture it… you emerge from a cooling dip only to find that the current has carried you down the beach a bit. Slight panic sets in as you scan for your towel – has someone taken it? Did your family move without telling you? Make sure you always find your spot with a juicy watermelon, tangy grapefruit or a fruity kiwi print!


2. Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen…

Whether you prefer anti-ageing protection with Lancaster’s Sun Control Anti-Wrinkles & Dark Spots SPF 30. You like to add a little sparkle with Sunshine & Glitter’s Sea Star Sparkle Mermaid SPF 50 or keep it light with Bali Body’s Cacao Tanning Oil SPF6 – make sure you don’t forget your sunscreen. It’s your best defence against skin cancer and signs of premature ageing. Add Caribbean Breeze’s SPF 50 Lip Essential to your bag to keep lips nourished and protected too.



Sunglasses are the ultimate functional accessory, protecting our sight from harmful UV rays and from impending crow’s feet around the eyes. They’re a wardrobe essential especially for a beach day and there are plenty of shapes and styles to choose from… Pared will give you a classic look with some serious wow factor. When they look this fabulous, you’ll want more than one pair!


4. Hat

Block the rays and give your skin a little extra protection… well that’s our excuse for obsessing over our range of uber stylish hats. If you love the classic look then the Panama Hat is for you. Feeling a little bit quirkier? Then try our Greetings From Floppy Hat White.


5. Beach bag

Finally, you’ll need something to carry all your glamourous essentials, beach bags. Finish any beach look with a pop of colour from Dodo or Palms, nautical stripes from SD Basics, basket styles from Noro or handy little beach pouches from Spartina.
