A beach vacation is what you may be yearning for right now so why not go ahead and take it? A beach vacation is more than just packing sunscreen and heading to the beach; but rather if you plan it well, you can have a lot of fun. Be it flying to the Bahamas or simply heading downtown to your local beach, the day could be made loads of fun with a bit of planning. So here is what you should do.
Pack The Right Clothes
A beach vacation is all about comfort and simplicity. Your swimsuits are compulsory, and pack some light clothes such as a pair of shorts, tank tops and also sundresses for a walk down the beach at sunset or for a candlelight dinner. A pair of sandals or flip flops will come in handy when walking on the sand. If you are planning to have a long vacation for a few days, take a few sets of swimsuits so you can wear them interchangeably. Also, make sure the materials of your clothes will dry off quickly so that even if you wear them over your wet bikini, they will dry off in no time. Light cottons are great as opposed to denim or corduroy.
Take Protection From The Sun
Different people are sensitive to the sun in different degrees. If you have sensitive skin, make sure you take along good quality sun protection items so that your entire vacation will not be ruined by bad sunburn. Also, the sun could cause skin cancer as you age. Your sunscreen should be of at least SPF 15. It should protect you from both UVA and UVB sun rays. A lip balm will keep your lips safe; ensure you reapply frequently. Take protective clothing items such as scarves, hats and also rudy project sunglasses. It will be beneficial if you can carry a jumbo umbrella to take shade under.
Don’t head to the beach with nothing to do. It can get extremely boring and will ruin the vacation. Pack some fun activities you want to do on the beach. For example, bring your iPod to enjoy some music at the beach, you can even bring a Bluetooth speaker if you want to let the crowd in too. bring your favourite novel, a football or volleyball so you can enjoy some games, moulds to build sand castles to keep the kids busy etc. The beach is a lot of fun if you bring the right stuff.
A Waterproof Bag
Your stuff needs to be kept safe from the water and burglars at the beach. Once you hit the water, you have no idea what’s going on with your belongings so you need to make sure your bag can hold your valuables safely while also protecting those items from the sand or water. It is advised to never take anything valuable such as jewellery, exclusive watches or electronic items to the beach. But f they are your essentials, you will need to store them safely.
