Anti-sun potion detail.png

An anti-sun potion is an item obtained from the Summer Beach Party. It can be received by killing Clawdia. When applied, the following message appears: You apply the anti-sun potion to your skin and now feel more able to cope with the heat of the beach. You will get an extra 5% XP for any activity done on the beach for the next 24 hours. The potion is lost once applied.

It boosts experience gained from all activities done in the Lumbridge Crater, not just the ones offered by the event. However, the anti-sun potion has an even greater effect on the event activities excluding the Rock Pools fishing, being applied once as base experience and second time as bonus experience. Depositing the fish from Rock Pools activity also enjoys the greater boost. Unlike the cocktails, the experience bonus provided by the potion doesn't stack with itself. If reapplied before the 24 hours are over, there is a warning message that shows how long the current dose will last.

The extra 5% experience bonus is highly useful in cutting the cost and time of training. Any activity that would otherwise be done while bankstanding can be done on the beach for an automatic 5% experience bonus. The bonus stacks with other bonuses such as perfect juju potions and portable skilling stations, as well as experience-boosting sets. For example, while on the beach with anti-sun potion applied, a full botanist's outfit on, perfect juju herblore potion effect, and portable well bonus experience, one can achieve a 26% bonus to Herblore experience gained.

The anti-sun potion was tradeable during the 2015 Summer Beach Party but was changed into untradeable when the event ended, with its price at 735 coins down from its initial price of 15,000 coins. Attempting to use one after the event ended provides the message: This item no longer works as the power of the beach has expired. Following the 2016 party, any existing anti-sun potions were removed on 3 October 2016. In 2018 they were removed on 1 October.
