There’s nothing better than venturing to the British seaside when the sun is shining outdoors, especially when there are so many fond memories associated with days spent at the beach.

Here’s our pick of five essential summer items to make this beach day a brilliant one.  

Stay Trendy on the Beach

This straw sun hat is a great way to protect your head and face from harmful rays whilst keeping you cool. Even better, it’s super stylish too – so much so, we bet you’ll be sporting it day and night come rain or shine! Pair with a floral sundress and colourful backpack to complete this stylish beach look.

Pack the Perfect Picnic

Whether it be with family or a group of friends when venturing down to the beach, there is likely to be a number of hungry mouths to feed throughout the day. This family-sized picnic bag is perfect for packing and storing food on-the-move and will keep refreshments fresh for up to six hours. We also love the fun and striking pattern and the adjustable strap which makes transportation a breeze.

Soak up the Sun in Comfort

Not everyone’s idea of beach time comfort is lying on the sand, so this stylish Hi Gear chair from Go Outdoors is a great solution. The chair features a slightly reclined shape with sumptuous sponge padding to optimise on comfort. When it’s time to leave, simply fold the chair down and strap the sides together, so it can be stored in the bag and carried with ease. Don’t forget to pack some sunglasses and a great book and you’re good to go.
