Summer is on the way! And that means longer evenings, trips to the beach, holidays in the sun… Our beach clutches are the perfect accessory for the summer, and a handy accompaniment for trips to the beach. With lots of pockets to store your everyday items and a handy detachable coin purse, there’s no need to cart around a huge bag everywhere you go. Just pop the essentials in your beach clutch and go! With that in mind, here are our essential items for your sorbet beach clutch.

1. Your Turkish Hammam Towel

The number one essential for a day at the beach is a Sorbet hammam towel. They’ll roll up nicely to fit in your clutch, which makes them ideal for travel or camping trips. They’re also super-absorbent whilst being lightweight and quick drying, which means repeated dips in the sea don’t need to result in a damp, sand-encrusted towel at the end of the day. Hammam towels are pretty versatile too – great as a picnic rug (no one likes sandy sandwiches), or a beach cover-up in the midday sun.

2. Sun cream

There’s plenty of space in your beach clutch for that ever-important sun cream. After all, lobster red isn’t the colour any of us aim for when pursuing that golden, ‘I’ve-been-on-a-great-holiday’ tan. We love Marie Claire’s round-up of the 10 best sun creams as a handy guide to which sun cream to choose this summer.

3. Sunglasses

Squinting into the sunset isn’t the most glamourous beach-look. Remember to pack your favourite sunnies for a day at the beach. The handy pockets in the Sorbet beach clutch means you can keep your sunglasses separate from your keys etc. so they don’t get scratched in transit. Just don’t lose them in the sea like me – a regular holiday tradition I’ve been maintaining over the last few years…

4. Beach Cover-up

Nobody wants to be trying to put on shorts whilst covered in sand and sun cream, or popping to a café in your bikini (let’s face it, it’s basically underwear). A cover up is ideal for nipping to a café for a bite to eat or for walking back to the hotel and not feeling so exposed when you hit the lobby. Of course, if you’ve packed your hammam towel, it can double-up as a cover up. Just wrap it round your waist or chest as a stylish sarong.

5. Entertainment

Lazing around all day on the beach requires some light entertainment. Get that Kindle charged-up, dig out your iPod, or get some good old-fashioned books to read on the beach. Whether it’s a classic novel you’ve meant to read for ages or your MP3 player to listen to music, it will all fit in your handy Sorbet beach clutch. So when you do fancy a dip in the sea, your gadgets and gizmos are protected from prying eyes and sandy hands.
