Summer is just around the corner and already the British climate has begun to feel warmer and brighter. As the weather gradually improves, residents are beginning to once again make plans for days spent basking under the sun with sand between their toes. To enjoy the beach comfortably, however, requires a few essential accessories. And, whether it is the golden sands of the Mediterranean or a stunning shore of Cornwall, the following seven accessories are must-haves for 2022.
If you’re wanting to make the most of any trip to the beach, you’ll want to ensure that you bring along some shade. Doing so allows you to spend longer periods of time at the beach without putting your skin at risk due to overexposure. There are now a number of lightweight options for individuals and families to bring with them a comfortable and cooling cover with them, from beach tents to pop-up canopies, all of which have UV protection.
Enjoying a cold drink or snack on a hot day at the beach isn’t just a luxury, it is also a form of safety, and portable coolers are no longer the clunky, brightly-coloured plastic boxes you might remember as a child. Instead, they are space-efficient and stylish, with some designs even being equipped with off-road capable wheels.
Whether you fancy a casual dip in the ocean or you’re at the shore to catch the next wave, a changing robe is an essential asset. Not only do they allow you to stay covered while you dry and change but, on cooler days, they can help you to quickly warm up too. Many designs will also include soft, hyper-absorbent fabric lining too, drying you off with unbeatable comfort.
While sunglasses are so often associated with style, they play an important role in safety too. UV light is understood to damage eyes, especially when they are exposed for considerable lengths of time. When at the beach, the risk not only comes from the sky but the sunlight that is reflected from the water too. As such, every beach trip should see you accompanied with sunglasses.
Insulated Water Bottle
An insulated water bottle is useful in a number of ways. They help to keep your water refreshingly cool, even on a hot day, and hydrated, which is especially important for young adults and children. Water bottles are also reusable, deterring you from purchasing single-use plastics, as well as paying the generally higher prices for drinks when you’re at a remote location.
Waterproof Phone Case
Instead of purchasing an extreme sports camera, simply buy a waterproof case for your phone. Doing so will allow you to capture amazing photographs, from underwater landscapes to those wave-crashing selfies, using your mobile device without the risk of any splash or submersion damage.
Instead of burying your belongings or always keeping guard, you can now simply purchase a portable safe for your valuables to stay within when you’re at the beach. Doing so will keep them safe and allow you and your family to enjoy their day without the fear of theft. And, if you manage to lose them, some brand designs even come with a tracking device too!
