What to wear to SandFest

SandFest is held on the beach, so comfortable footwear is a must. You won’t be able to walk on the sand in heels. Sunscreen is also a must, it gets very hot on Sandbanks beach in the summer and the sun’s rays are very strong even if it’s a cloudy day. The sun’s rays can penetrate through the clouds so don’t think that because it’s cloudy you won’t get burnt or suffer from sunstroke. The dress code is fairly relaxed and casual so shorts are a good choice.
