When going to the beach the essential things to bring with you are swimming costume, towel, sun cream and sunglasses. Sunglasses are particularly important because they fill a variety of roles, the first, which many well consider to be the most important, is they made you look cool.
Looking great at the beach is of vital importance because beaches tend to attract lots of people and confine them to a densely populated area, therefore there are many people there to judge your style. With the beach being a place for people to undress and wear fewer clothes, one has fewer items with which to make a statement with.
When just wearing a swimming costume you need something practical to finish off your look, sunglasses fill this role perfectly, not only making you look good in front of fellow beach goers but serving an important purpose as well.
That purpose is of course protecting your eyes, the sun emits damaging UV rays, so it is important to have a good pair of sunglasses on the beach that will filter out 100% of this light.
This is triply important when at the beach, as not only is there light coming from the sun but it is also being reflected off the sea and the sand in the form of glare. Glare is not only dangerous but highly annoying, so a pair of polarised sunglasses will eliminate this problem.
