Beach Bag Essen­tials: What to Pack when the Liv­ing is Easy

Turn the tide on av­er­age sea­side so­journs with our must-pack checklist. Just don’t for­get an um­brella, ra­dioac­tive sun­burn doesn’t look good on any­one.

Condé Nast House & Garden - - MANIFESTO -

1. Jonni Gin & Tonic 750ml (R69, Cy­ber­cel­lar) Pale pink and per­fectly bal­anced, we’re not usu­ally ad­vo­cates of a premix but this one hits it square on the nail. 2. Uzuri ‘Safi’ San­dals in Nude

(R525, Con­voy) Leather san­dals look as good on the beach as they do at the near­est beach bar. We chal­lenge you to find a shoe that’s eas­ier to get sand out of. 3. Beach Bats (R350, Jasper

Eales) Is any­one re­ally that good with a beach bat any­way? Doesn’t mat­ter, they’re fun and per­fect for stag­ing envy-in­duc­ing In­sta sto­ries. These rope-han­dled ones are sturdy plus each pair comes with a ball. 4. Dolce & Gab­bana Light Blue Ital­ian Zest 125ml (R1 510, Wool­worths)

Sun­shine sea­son is all about fresh cit­rus notes and this lim­ited-edi­tion of­fer­ing has them all.

5. Der­ma­log­ica Pure Light SPF50 Ad­vanced Broad Spec­trum Mois­turiser 50ml (R1 099) A sun­screen and a mois­turiser. You’ll be thank­ing us later. 6. Sis­ley Hydra-global Serum 40ml

(R3 150, Edgars) This fast ab­sorb­ing, uber hy­drat­ing mois­turiser will ward off your skin’s post-sun woes. 7. Dhow Towel (R800, Mungo)

We don’t care what any­one says, noth­ing says sum­mer like a blue-and-white striped linen towel and this ex­tra-large one from Mungo says it the loud­est. 8. Straw Boater (R650, Crys­tal Birch) In a city of cool kids, Capeto­nian milliner Crys­tal Birch is the coolest. Tap into her ef­fort­less style with one of these Riv­iera-ready boaters (even if you only make it as far as Clifton 2nd). 9. Per­sol

649 (R3 090, Sun­glass Hut) If Per­sol was good enough for Steve Mcqueen it’s good enough for you. 10. Amped Speaker (R425, Jasper Eales)

A tinny iphone speaker isn’t go­ing to start a party but a non­elec­tric sound sys­tem will. This en­tirely wooden one uses sim­ple sci­ence to am­plify sound. It doesn’t use a bat­tery, so make sure your phone is charged. 11. Alexan­der Sack (R695,

Skinny Lam­inx) Spa­cious and hard-wear­ing, this mul­ti­task­ing num­ber will hold all the awe­some stuff on our beach bag essen­tials list.
