Everything you need for a day at the beach

Everything you need for a day at the beach

If you’re like us and have been dreaming of having your feet in the sand, a splash in the sea and eating ice cream along the shore then a beach holiday must be next on your plans!

After the last few year’s we have all had, we all deserve a gorgeous beach holiday where you don’t have to worry about anything other than when to apply your next set of sun-cream. What’s great about the UK is that there are some gorgeous beaches screaming out for you to visit, and they are only a couple hours drive away. You could be at the beach in no time!

Before you go, you need to pack your bag with all the essentials you’ll need for that perfect beach trip. From bags, cover-ups, SPF… we’ve compiled the items that you shouldn’t go without so that you have a seamless trip and keep you and your family/friends safe and comfortable.

You can trust us, we know what we are talking about when it comes to beachwear, swimwear, and accessories!

Swimsuit or bikini

What is your go to swimwear? Whether it be a swimsuit or a bikini, you need to make sure you have it available for your trip to the beach. Is it stuffed in a drawer somewhere from the last time you went to the beach? Or in your gym bag from your last swimming session? Make sure that whatever it is you are wanting to wear is clean, dry, and will last in the sea, and on the beach!

If you fancy buying something new, then check out what we have in store. We have a wide range of styles of swimming costumes, as well as bikini’s that are just so perfect for the beach!

Do you fancy wearing bright summer colours this year, or fancy something a little more laid back? We’ve got everything covered so check out our site and get shopping!


This is the most important item to take with you to the beach. Not only will it protect your skin from sunburn, but it also helps to moisturize and protect from any sun ray damage. Make sure you take enough sun-cream to last you the entire day at the beach, and if you are going with friends or family, make sure that they have some too! You need to reapply regularly, especially if you are going in the sea because it can wash off really quickly.

Beach cover-up

Perfect in so many ways! Having a beach cover-up means that you can pop it on if a breeze picks up, or if you just want to give your skin a little break from the sun. This is also a must have because if you want to go for some food at the beach café, or fancy a stroll along the pier, then having a stylish cover-up will keep you protected and looking amazing!

Watababe have recently launched some beach cover-ups that contain the softest material on your skin, whilst keeping the product lightweight and easy to put into your beach bag, without taking up much room! They are so easy to slip on and off but provide you with the coverage you need if you’ve been in the sun a bit too long.

If you are the type of person who loves to take pictures when you’re at the beach, pair your favourite bikini or swimsuit with our beach cover-up, pop some sunglasses on and pair with a gorgeous beach bag and you will be insta ready in no time!


One of the most important things to add to your summer wardrobe is a pair of gorgeous sunglasses, they not only shield your eyes from UV rays, but they keep you looking amazing! If you want to be able to see when you are at the beach, instead of being blinded by the sun rays then you need to pack sunglasses.. maybe even a spare one in case something accidentally happens to one pair (think falling off in the sea, sitting on them.).

Your sunglasses will finish off your style perfectly and they are super practical!

Beach towels

You can’t always guarantee that the beach you are going to will have some loungers available, with towels that you can hire too. Taking some beach towels of your own that are lightweight is the perfect answer! You don’t want to arrive at the beach and realize that you are going to have to sit in the direct sand all day do you!

Grab beach towels that are big enough to lie down on and that are soft on your skin as you don’t want to cause any irritation. Just fold up your towels and pop them in your beach bag for a perfect place to sunbathe and eat ice cream!

Beach bag

This is a must have! You need a place to put all of your accessories, sun cream, towels, and personal items which is why you need to take a beach bag. A bag that has been designed to carry all of these items, whilst staying in perfect condition from the sun, sand, and sea is exactly what you need!

No more taking wasteful carrier bags to the beach and praying it doesn’t rip or get blown away. Stay away from lugging big rucksacks to the beach which leave you with weird tan lines, and a bad back! Invest in a new beach bag which is easy to carry, looks amazing, and can last for years without getting worn down!

Watababe have recently stocked the most gorgeous beach bag in our shop! It is already flying off the website because of how stunning it is, and perfect for taking to the beach! You better act quick, this bag will be sold out in no time!

Enjoy your trip to the beach with all of your new accessories! Remember to top up your sun cream, stay smiling, and have an ice cream for us!
