Ride the wave
Summer is officially here, and there are less than 60 days left of the year. This means that soon all of Gauteng will drain out of the province and move down to the coast. Here’s where you’ll find all the things you need before you hit the beach this summer.
What kind of Octopus?
If you love those funky novelty shops that stock everything from glow tape and donkey wine stoppers, then you need to stop in at Gemini Octopus in Fourways Mall. Here you’ll not only find loads of great gift ideas, but they’ve also got a great range of funky beach towels and waterproof speakers – a must have for the summer.
Don’t wear the same boardshorts that you’ve had since Matric Rage. It’s time to upgrade. So head to Surf Centre in Fourways mall for the latest boardie fashion, and maybe consider getting yourself a surfboard to use down in Durbs this year!
Flip-flops and Bronzers
If you’re going to be spending all your time on the sand this December, then you’ll want to look your tanned-best. Head to Gold Coast Tan in Cedar Square for bronzers to perfect your look. They also stock a wide range of womens and mens swimwear, kaftans, and most importantly, Ipanema flip-flops for long walks on the beach.

Of course, no beach outfit is complete without the perfect set of shades. When we hit the beach, we always remember to put sunblock on (right?) but your eyes need protection too, which is why it’s worth investing in a good pair of polarised sunglasses. Hit Torga Optical, Fourways Mall Optometrists or Mellin’s to find your perfect pair for summer.
