A summer holiday by the beach has to be a favorite type of holiday for everyone. You get to swim, sunbathe, relax, and escape the mundane routine. The most stressful part about it can be packing, especially for someone who can’t decide what to bring, which is why we are creating a checklist of the most important things.
Go Easy on the Shoes
Let us start with the hardest one, and the one that takes up the most space—shoes. So . many people bring way too many shoes on trips. Deciding which shoes to bring to a beach vacation can quickly turn into a full suitcase of footwear you are not going to wear once. That is why you should stick to the basics. Wear your sneakers while you a traveling since they are comfortable, and you can wear them once you get there as well.
Bring flip flops for the beach or a short trip to the shop. And one more thing you should pack is sandals, either flats or heels, depending on what you like, for a night out. A good tip for packing shoes is to get shoe bags so that they won’t get your clothes dirty.
All the Technology
Most people travel with only their smartphone, but there are still those that need to bring more technology with them, so here is a list of the most important items. Your smartphone and charger are the first things. Although a good idea would be to get a power bank and bring that as well. Your laptop with music or movies is another thing. If you are going with a group of friends, a Bluetooth speaker is a great idea.
Of course, an item you can’t forget is a camera if you want to take amazing photos. All of this can be purposeful for having fun as well as making it easy on you to find different locations, shops, and restaurants. As for the girls, make a deal so that only one of you brings a blow dryer and the other one brings a flat iron, for example. That way, you don’t have to carry too much stuff.
Beach vacations don’t require too much wardrobe, and one more plus is that everything is light and packs easily. Some of the basic things you need are a few shorts, a few everyday shirts, and some fancy ones for a night out. You can bring a dress or two if you go sightseeing or to dinner or drinks. Before you go, make sure you bring at least two bathing suits.
You can search for swimwear online and look at some of the new trends and even order online since the choice is probably better than in stores. And since we are already on that topic, bring a beach cover-up, which you can wear it at the beach or for a chilly night. You can also get a hat to protect you from the Sun even more.
Makeup and Beauty Products
This will be a list of essential beauty products, no full glam makeup. The most important thing you shouldn’t leave your house without is sunscreen. Bring it and use it every day, at least half an hour before you go to the beach. If you can’t stand heavy makeup, a BB cream, a bit of bronzer and highlight, mascara and lipstick is all the makeup you need.
As for the beauty products, a daily moisturizer and a makeup remover with a washing gel will do the trick. Shampoos, hair conditioners, body lotions, shower gels, and toothpaste are some of the things you might need as well.
Last but not least, there are some other things you must pack as well. Of course, you can’t go to the beach without a beach towel and bag, so make sure you pack those. Also, bring a book or magazine to pass the time if that is something you like. Some of the things you might also need are sunglasses, a cooling bag, beach mat, and a waterproof case for your phone. If you are going on an adventure beach trip, goggles, snorkeling mask, and suits may be necessary.
Beach holidays are actually the easiest to pack for. The most basic and necessary things are listed here, so make sure you don’t forget those. Everything else you can get once you get there. And one great tip for the end is to pack lightly and don’t bring things you know you’re not going to use.
