Packing for a Beach Vacation? What to pack for a beach vacation? Well, this is probably the biggest challenge regarding a beach packing checklist: It’s going to vary depending on your destination, the person, and even the activities planned at the same time. For instance, you may wonder what you should bring just to the shore, but if the beach includes a short hike in the area, no public facilities at the site, a few water sports, and a few sunbathing and cocktail parties…is there anything you should take with you? Or maybe your destination has great restaurants, but you’re traveling to a popular beach resort town that features nightlife as well, so you think you’ll need to take a few essentials with you.
A good way to handle all these concerns is to have the proper packing supplies for any eventualities, whether it’s going to be sunny or rainy; even if you just need a bit more sun protection for your face, a nice waterproof umbrella, sunscreen, lip gloss, mascara, compact mirror, nail clippers, etc. If you’ve never packed for a vacation before and are nervous about how much things will actually go in the bag, don’t worry! Most people who have been packing for a beach vacation have said that the most common mistake people make is overloading their bags, thinking they can take everything in the allotted space, especially with a long journey ahead. Pack smart, have fun, and have a great time!
For instance, some of the most popular items for a family vacation are sunglasses, sun hats, towels, T-shirts, swimsuits, beach umbrellas, sunglasses, sun glasses, bug repellent, sunscreen, lunches and dinners, sleeping bags, snacks, books, etc. When packing for a beach vacation, always remember to include at least one extra beach towel for each person. Remember, you don’t necessarily need to pack in extras for the car, since you can always bring your necessities along on the car trip.
Most importantly, make sure you have enough clothes for everyone. You might think you don’t need this, but you never know when something might happen! And of course, make sure you have the right beach clothing for each individual. For example, if there are two of you going on a vacation, wear different colors depending on whether you’re the alpha male or the submissive female.
Once you have your list, it’s time to start packing! Start by packing for the essentials. It might seem like a lot, but carrying-on your surfboard and board shorts won’t hurt, especially if you only need them once on board. And if you’re packing for other members of the family, they’ll be glad you took care of them and carried-on their swimsuits, and other summer necessities.
The next step in packing is beach umbrellas. When the temperature gets high, it’s sometimes uncomfortable to sit out in the sun without a little help. But don’t forget to pack your beach umbrella, as well as towels, sunglasses, earbuds, first aid kit, sun block lotion, hat, and anything else you think you might need. After all, there’s nothing worse than being miserable on a vacation. And don’t forget to bring along your favorite book to keep you occupied. And last but not least, the best way to pack for a beach vacation is to make sure you don’t leave anything back home!…
