The Wishlist: What To Pack For The Beach

Salt in your hair and sand between your toes, days at the beach are about switching off and unwinding in the sun. In the legendary words of Bob Marley: don’t worry, be happy. One thing you certainly shouldn’t be worrying about: what you’re going to take to the beach. To help ease your holiday packing angst, we’ve pulled together a must-have checklist of seaside essentials. So you can spend more time frolicking on the sand like a modern-day Brigitte Bardot, and less time checking whether you have the right shoes. Alongside your SPF, headphones , rose-water facial mist, and a book, these are the things you need to hit up the beach in style.
