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.

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.

Swimwear from City Beach

Swimwear is an obvious essential for the beach, so why not get yourself into a pair of the latest styles from City Beach?

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.

Light clothing from Cotton On

Ensure you're wearing light and easygoing clothes when you head to the beach, so you can get changed as quickly as possible.
