All year round we look forward to our summer holidays, when long, hazy days on the beach are punctuated by only a good book, a cocktail and dips in the glittering sea.
And, if you're anything like us, we're so excited about the prospect of a summer holiday that we start scouting out the best beach bags and kaftans as soon as they become available in the shops.
So, now that the weather is heating up we have compiled our pick of the ultimate new beach accessories, from the coolest cover ups to the smartest sandals. Whether you're off somewhere exotic or planning a chilled out holiday in the UK, we've got something for you, and all for under £50.
