Soaking the sun, check. Getting a natural tan, check. Hydrating all day long, check. Summer is here! If you’re a beach-baby, the season calls for a sunny holiday. The best part of the places that offer beaches are the rentals. The rental apartments, rental bikes, unlike hotels and for-hire cabs, they are always affordable. So you can rent them for as long as you want to, on a guilt-free budget, which means, a long relaxing holiday. Which also means, a lot of packing. Take our words and don’t do the last minute packing. Make a checklist in advance and go by it.
Tips: Try your items at least a week before you pack them and only pack the ones you are absolutely sure of. Pack mostly neutrals and versatile clothes and make sure they are low maintenance. Count on a tote bag to carry all your beach items.
Other than your daily outfits, swimsuits and cosmetics, there are many items you must remember to pack. Here’s a small checklist that’ll help you pack right.
You’ll probably be spending almost half-a-day at beach and other half shopping. With so much time out of the hotel, you’ll be needing some effective travel-friendly toiletries, especially, when you’re at the beach like a tiny bottle of lotion, lip balm, face and hand wash.
Apart from the regular medicines (if you consume any), it’s always safe carry a little first-aid travel kit and bandages to cover those random cuts the beach has planned for you.
Make sure you are picking a sunscreen with high SPF for your beach time otherwise, your skin might face burns instead of a harmless tan.
With highly humid weather, you’ll need to wipe sweat from your face over and over again. It’s always hygienic to do so using anti-bacterial wipes.
Trust us, it’s much better to have a sweat pad attached to your armpits rather than feeling uncomfortable because of the never-ending pit-sweat.
You’ll be needing some healthy yet tasty munchies on your day out on the beach. So go for some crispy options, they are more appetite-satisfying. Savoury or sweet? That’s up to you!
Lying on the beach for hours will need something more entertaining than your phone. You’ll need some good books, take the ones you’ve always wanted to read but never had enough time.
As your preference of clothes would be neutrals, you can choose colourful earrings, beach bags, bracelets or necklaces to add an edge to your finished look.
Well, a bit obvious but very important. Not everyone is used to wearing sunglasses all day long but for a sunny holiday, you’ll need a pair of cool glasses to protect your eyes from direct sunlight.
Ever seen those big hats that cover your entire face? Yeah, you’ll have to buy that if you don’t already have one. It’s a dual protection deal. It’ll protect both your hair and your face!
If you even thought of taking your sneakers, forget it, because you won’t be able to walk in sand wearing shoes. Sand will pour in like water. You’ll need some easy-peasy flip flops!
A wallet that holds your passport, cards and map
While you must keep the carry-ons to the minimum, a wallet with all your essentials including money, passport, all your cards and a map of the town is a must!
