About us


Our story

Beach & Bandits is a seaside based children’s swimwear brand, born out of a love for long summer days on the beach and motivated by the desire to create cool and comfortable children’s swimwear that looks and feels great but, most importantly, is protective of children’s delicate skin whilst out in the sun. The brand was founded in 2015 by us, Hans & Jo-anne. Together with our three kids, we can often be found on the beach in our free time: surfing, swimming, walking and building sand castles. Good sun protection is a must, but in our search for cool & comfortable sun-safe swimwear, we got frustrated at the lack of these available. So we started a journey and set out on a mission. Beach & Bandits was born and believes that UPF50+ swimwear can be cool, comfortable and sun-safe at the same time!

Our collection has been expanded in recent years from 9 to 175 items per season and is available worldwide. Not only does Beach & Bandits offer your kids optimal protection against the sun, but with the summery colors, quirky texts and cheerful prints they also look very cool. Beach & Bandits guarantees that the swimwear has the functionality that parents (like us) need for our children: UV-protective, comfortable, lightweight, breathable and quick-drying.

"We keep them safe, they keep us wild!"

Love, Hans & Jo-anne
