In this part of the world, early fall is a great season for a beach day trip or overnight camping. The weather is not too hot nor too cold, and in the coastal city of the UAE, excellent swim spots are just a few minutes away. Before you plan your next trip to the beach, let Sun & Sand Sports online help you pick and pack the essential beachwear and accessories to suit your outdoor activity.
We love the feel of sand between our toes – but not the hot and gravely kind! Protect your feet when walking on the shore with lightweight and cushioned sandals and slides. These pairs from adidas and Nike are easy to wear, durable, and they feature a moulded footbed for a custom fit and patterned outsoles – ideal for sandy and slippery surfaces.
We don’t get a lot of waves here, but the variety of water sports to try and all the beach entertainment certainly makes up for it. Apart from open water swimming, there’s stand up paddleboarding, wakeboarding or beach volleyball on the shore to keep you busy. Whether you’re in the mood for sports or just topping up your tan, make sure you have on technical and trendy beach wear like durable shorts from Champion and swimsuits from Rip Curl.
Packing light is key. But with a bulky bath towel taking up a lot of room in your bag, there’s not much space for everything else. Koala has got the solution with their gorgeous and super light hand-loomed towels. Koala towels are 70% more compact than your regular ones. Plus, they are super absorbent, fast-drying, anti-microbial and shed sand off easily. They’re made of eco-friendly materials and they look so good, you can use them as a cover-up or blanket.
Protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, reflection glare, and from always squinting on your photos with a pair of quality sunglasses from Oakley. The Flak sunglasses offer unobstructed vision and expanded field of view with a semi-rimless design. The different High Definition Optics® lenses are great for water sports, and optimise performance and safety.
For additional sun protection, top off your beach look with a classic bill cap. adidas designs them with Climalite internal taping that wicks sweat away, with embroidered eyelets for ventilation. The snapback closure is size-adjustable.
