Hitting the Beach in Style: Sunglasses Perfect for Your Coastal Getaway

There’s nothing quite like a beach trip. The sound of the waves crashing, the warm sand between your toes, and the refreshing ocean breeze. But before you pack your beach bag and head out the door, don’t forget an essential accessory: sunglasses! Sunglasses are more than just a fashion statement at the beach. They’re crucial for protecting your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays, which can be especially intense near water. Here at Zenni, we offer a wide variety of sunglasses that are perfect for your next beach adventure.

Must-Have Features for Beach Sunglasses

  • Polarized Lenses: When spending time around water, polarized lenses are a game-changer. They help to reduce glare bouncing off the surface of the water, allowing you to see more clearly and reducing eye strain.
  • UV Protection: All Zenni sunglasses offer 100% UV protection, ensuring your eyes are shielded from the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays.
  • Durability: Beach days often involve sand, salt water, and maybe even a rogue frisbee or two.  Choose sunglasses made from tough materials like polycarbonate lenses and  grilamid frames that can withstand a little wear and tear.
  • Comfort: You’ll likely be wearing your sunglasses for hours on end, so opt for a lightweight, comfortable fit. Look for styles with adjustable nose pads and temples for a customized feel.
