Packing Tips for Beach Holidays
No matter where you’re travelling, here are some of the most essential items you want to pack once you’ve bought your beach holiday packages:
Swimsuit: Always pack at least two swimsuits so you can wear one while the other is drying.
Beach cover-up: Beach cover-ups or sarongs are a multi-purpose item. You can use as a statement piece walking to and from the beach, and a sarong can also be fashioned into a makeshift bag if you need to carry towels, bottles of sunscreens or shoes. If you've booked beach accommodation and flight packages to a more conservative destination, you can use your sarong to cover your shoulders or legs when visiting temples or other religious sites.
Jacket: Tropical paradises such as Bali or Fiji can get experience cooler temperatures once the sun sets. Keep a light jacket in your bag in case the temperature drops and you need to warm up.
Footwear: Before leaving for your beach holiday packages, you'll want to make sure you've packed a pair of thongs and sandals. Both are beach holiday must-haves to help you easily transition from a long day at the beach to dinner in town.
Snorkel: If you're looking to save money on your beach holiday packages, bring a snorkel set with you. You won't need to rent snorkel gear every single day, and it gives you the freedom to go exploring if you come across a hidden beach or lagoon.
Water bottle: It's easy to get dehydrated while soaking up the sun’s rays and cooling off in the water. Instead of buying plastic bottles every single day, pack a reusable water bottle that you can fill up as you go.
Travelling with Kids to the Beach
Choose the right beach
When you're buying beach packages for the whole family, you need to do your research to choose the right beach. You'll want to look for an option that has calm waters and gentle currents, plus any options with dedicated paddling pools or nearby playgrounds is always a bonus.
Check to see if there is a lifeguard on duty
Always prioritise visiting a beach that is patrolled by lifeguards or lifesavers. And when at these beaches, always be sure to swim between the flags if possible. Avoid swimming in unfamiliar breaks or currents at beaches where there aren’t other locals or holidaymakers around.
Keep your kids in the shade between 10am and 4pm
Nothing will put a dampener on enjoying your beach holiday packages like sunburn. Staying in the shade between 10am and 4pm will help you avoid the harshest UV rays, although the likelihood of you staying indoors all day while on holiday may not always be realistic. So, it can be handy to pack your own beach umbrella or sun shade that you can use while laying by the pool or relaxing on the sand.
Use sunblock spray
Have kids that won’t stand still for a thorough sunscreen application? Make things easier by bringing along sunblock spray.
