Some of the more notable sandwiches are salad sandwich, chicken sandwiches, cheese & pickle sandwiches, or prawn sandwiches. The baguette is also pretty similar, although it has longer bread rolls.

Crisps and Chocolate

Crisps and chocolate are the ideal beach snacks. There are many crisps that can be taken, but Walkers crisps are among the best and have a variety of flavors such as salt & vinegar, Worcester sauce, cheese & onion, ready salted, and smokey bacon. Pringle potato crisps are also recommended. Chocolate is another great beach snack, and consider bringing Cadbury or Galaxy chocolate, although if it is a very hot day these can melt quickly. However, most beach kiosks will also likely have crisps and chocolate.
