Beach Essentials For A Perfect Vacation

A holiday at the beach means the sun in your hair, sand beneath your feet and wind in your hair. We all have that immediate visual of calm waves of the crystal blue sea kissing the shore when we think about vacationing at the beach. And it’s such an exciting holiday opportunity for both children and adults. For children, it’s the rush of having a vast open beach to explore and for the adults, it’s a chance to take a breath and relax away from a hectic lifestyle. We’ve compiled a list of beach essentials to help you get started on your vacation right away.

Sun protection

First of all, you have to pack the essentials to shade and safeguard your skin from the sun. These include sun screen/sun block, lip balm, after sun lotion, moisturizer, beach hats and umbrellas if you’re staying to sunbathe. You should also take a cover-up to go with the bathing suit. This will make it easier when traveling from place to place. Hydration is a must; keep a water bottle with you at all times.

Additional equipment

This actually depends on how you plan to spend your beach stay. It’s better to have an idea whether you will be staying near a beach hotel or staying at the beach, out in the open for most of the time. There are some excellent vacationing spots in the tropics such as villas to rent.

You can find many budget friendly options in Albany for rent and also some of the best short term staying in other tropical islands.
You can buy beach equipment on the site itself but it’s better to bring your own as the local merchandise can be quite expensive. Make sure to bring your beach/water toys for the children, snorkel, fins if needed and a beach blanket to lie on.

Clothing options

It’s always better to pack light when traveling because of the hassle you go through when it comes to transportation. It’s much easier to walk with a lighter load. Make sure to keep sentimental items and valuables at home. Clothing should be light and airy, bright colours and white apparel to combat the heat with sensible sandals.

Choice of toiletries

You will have to get used to beach hair. A choice of toiletries including shampoo, conditioner, a brush or comb will help you tame the worst of the tangles in your hair. Also keep a first aid kit with you which will allow you to treat minor abrasions and injuries.
A day on the beach is a treat for everyone. It is should be noted that you are in charge of your own safety and this means you have to be attentive to your surroundings at all times. Enjoy your day under the sun and let the rushing waves wash your worries away.
