What to take to the beach this summer

Summer is in full swing, which means heading outdoors, basking in the heat and enjoying long days at the beach. A trip to the beach involves a few components that cannot be forgotten, like sunscreen, beach umbrellas and a good book to read to pass the time. 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. We love these Burberry sunglasses from its spring/summer collection.

Sunscreen from Coles

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

Inflatables from Mr & Mrs Jones

Inflatables are usually reserved for the pool, but 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 for shade, as well as a cooler you can fill to the brim with ice and thirst-quenching beverages.

Book from Target

Keep yourself entertained and enthralled with a new book to read.
