4. The beach towel

While our swim shorts are made from quick-dry fabrics, a luxurious beach towel is essential for relaxing on the sand or sunlounger. Have fun with bold patterns and colours.

5. The sun tan lotion

A healthy dose of vitamin D is vital, but burnt skin doesn’t make for a happy holiday. Slap on some water-resistant protection up to SPF 50 to stay safe in the sun.
