Are you ready for the beach? Here’s what you need to buy before summer starts

As beach lovers ourselves - why do you think we opened an online beach shop? - we spend a lot of time at the beach, whether it’s for leisure, or to test out new beach products to add to our collection (one of the fringe benefits of our business venture!)

Since we go to the beach so often, we’ve got a system down that minimises the amount of time we need to spend packing - and we know exactly what you need for a safe, enjoyable, and awesome day out by the water!

Whether you’re refreshing your beach ensemble in anticipation for another summer or you want advice when it comes to replenishing your supply of beach essentials, we’ve got you covered!

Start with the basics: beach essentials

What better place to begin your summer preparations than by stocking up on beach essentials?

Sunscreen, beach umbrellas, towels, hats - it’s pretty common sense stuff.

If you ask us, your beach bag should have all of these essential pieces of beach equipment ready to go for when summer begins.

Of course, including these when packing for the beach isn’t the hard part - the hard part is making sure that your beach essentials aren’t cheaply made and set to break after just one summer!

Beach umbrellas

A good beach umbrella doesn’t just protect you from shade - it should also be UV blocking.

It might surprise you, but just because it’s blocking sunlight doesn’t mean that it’s blocking UV rays.

According to some studies conducted in Spain, up to a third of all UV rays could still make their way through an umbrella.

Fortunately, you can find stylish beach umbrellas in our online beach shop that not only look beautiful, but are UV-rated and will protect you from the sun’s harmful rays.

Beach sunscreen

A lot of the UV rays you’re exposed to while at the beach don’t come from direct sun exposure, but from reflections, bouncing off the sand and water.

This is why it’s so important that you’re covered in sunscreen, even if you plan on spending all of your time in the shade!

Our range of beach sunscreen is made up of some pretty awesome Aussie and international brands, and offers protection against both UVA and UVB rays. 

Suitable for a wide range of skin types, these reef-friendly sunscreens and cocooil are a non-negotiable in your beach bag!  

Beach hats

If you ask us, a hat is not only a stylish choice for your beach ensemble, but a smart one, too!

Protect sensitive skin - like your ears, neck, and nose, with a quality wide-brimmed beach hat that offers adequate sun protection - and looks great!

Beach towels

Enjoy plush softness between you and the sand by including a beach towel in your beach kit.

Our range of beach towels aren’t just gorgeous and great quality - they’re also lightweight, generously sized and fast-drying.

Many of them even come with convenient carry bags to make it easier to lug them around!


Beach sunglasses

Did you know? Eye sunburn is real, and can turn a fun day at the beach into an unpleasant experience.

With a wide range of colours and shapes that suit a variety of different faces, you can find a pair of stylish beach sunglasses to suit your look at our online beach shop.

Luckily, sunglasses can protect you from this - provided that they’re UV sunglasses, of course.

Best of all, a cool pair of shades will help you avoid uncomfortable squinting from the sun and glare, and offer protection from wind, dust, and sand.
