With the Summer being absolutely glorious over the last few weeks in our London city, you may want to take a trip to the coast to enjoy some sand between your toes, the sound of the waves and the cool sea breeze!
If so, we’ve put together the perfect beach essentials guide for you to make the most of your day to the coast.
Although most Londoners seem to go to either Margate or Brighton as a “quick” coastal get-away, we recommend going to check out Ramsgate, which is a nicer beach and a lot quieter – thank us later!
This pale pink cap is perfect for those sunny days as it looks cute and will keep the sun out of your eyes. Match this with either a black or white swimsuit and you are good to go! Available from Tobi, £4 here.
A pair of flip-flops are a must-have for any beach visits. The convenience of being able to slip on and off makes these so suitable for the beach. And Havaianas come in loads of different colours, and are real sturdy! Available from Havaianas, prices vary, here.
4. Spare underwear
You will never be so grateful for a dry set of underwear until you are going home in a wet swimsuit underneath your clothes. THIS IS A MUST-HAVE.
5. Shirt Dress
A shirt dress is probably the most convenient item to wear to the beach as you can just throw it over your head. Denim is also very popular this Summer, so this is right on trend. Available from Pretty Little Thing, £22, Here.
6. Available for Weekends duffle bag
This bag is so cool! You’ll need a big bag to carry all your bits in, plus we love a good slogan! Available from Tobi, £60, here.
7. Watermelon Beach Towel
How about jazzing up the towel you sit on? This is pretty cool. Available from Tobi, £21, here.
8. Beach Ball
Teaming your watermelon beach towel with this beach ball will have your whole look in sync! Available from Tobi, £16, here.
We obviously have a clear obsession with watermelons this summer, but if watermelons aren’t your thing, you may want a glitter beach ball instead. This is so cute! Available from Prezzy Box, £14.99 here.
9. Swan Float
This rose-gold swan float is everything! Perfect for lounging in the sea and using it as a prop for those Instagram-worthy pics. Available from Tobi, £76 here.
And if the beach is out of reach for you, these essentials are perfect for a trip to the park also! (Excluding the rose-gold swan float… obviously.)
