Summer beach essentials

Summer is in full swing, which means heading outdoors, basking in the heat and enjoying long days at the beach. Here’s how to get beach ready with all the must-have essentials.

A trip to the beach involves a few components that cannot be forgotten. Everything from sunscreen, because slip, slop, slap is a must to beach umbrellas for some shade when needed and a good book to read to fuel your brain. Here’s our list of beach essentials so you can have the best day out at the beach.

Sunglasses from Sunglass Hut

Sunglasses are a must to protect your eyes from the harsh sun this summer, especially the strong rays at the beach. We love these Burberry sunglasses from their Spring Summer Collection.

Protect your skin from burning with the waterproof sunscreen. We love this Nivea 50+ SPF in a spray bottle for easy application and smooth consistency.

Inflatables from Mr & Mrs Jones

Inflatables are usually reserved for the pool, however if you're heading to a serene and calm beach, we suggest taking a donut to kick back and enjoy the ocean in.

Beach umbrella and cooler from Kmart

It's smart to take a beach umbrella with you, you never know when you'll need the shade. As well as shade, ensure you keep your drinks cool with a cooler you can fill to the brim with ice and thirst-quenching beverages.
