However, before you decide to go for a beach vacation, it is important to keep a note of the things that you will require. Given below is a complete list of all the items that you must carry to enjoy your vacation.

Travel documents

It would be wise to keep all your documents arranged in a file. This would ensure that you have all of them organized together. To be on the safer side, you can keep their copies in your email. The following documents should be included –

  • Passport/ Visa
  • Identity proof
  • Health insurance papers
  • Itinerary and reservation information
  • Accommodation contact details
  • Emergency contact numbers

A small carry-on bag

Prepare a small bag and keep in it all the stuff that you would need repeatedly. Remember, that since you will be carrying it all the time, it would be good if you keep it light in weight. Things to be put inside the bag include –

  • Mobile charger
  • Headphones
  • Camera
  • Travel guide or maps
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Wet wipes and paper soaps
  • Magazine or novel that you read
  • Sunglasses
  • Lip balm and sunscreen lotion

First aid kit

It is necessary that you stay prepared for any kind of major or minor discomfort that may arise during your stay at the beach house. Here are the things to take along:

  • A waterproof box – If your kit somehow ends up in or near the water, your supplies do not get damaged.
  • Keep all the basic things – Anti-histamines, painkillers, bandages, cotton swabs, antiseptic, thermometer, insect repellents, ointments and any specific medication that you take.
  • Instant ice packs – These provide instant relief for sunburns and bruises.

The main bag

Find a luggage that is spacious, sturdy and light enough to be carried. For organizing your stuff, you can use compression sacs that can reduce the volume of your clothes by 80% or you can just keep army fold tops and t-shirts to save some space. Try to put all the things compactly in one bag to avoid carrying multiple luggage. The things that you should put inside your travel bag are –

  • Clothing (tops, shirts, t-shirts etc.)
  • Night clothes
  • Pairs of pajamas and socks
  • Shoes and slippers
  • Two or more swimsuits or swim trunks
    Make up or shaving kit

Apart from the above mentioned things, there are some more items that you can carry depending upon your need and choice.

  • In case you are going to the beach side with a toddler, do not forget to pack extra pair of clothes and amenities like milk bottles, baby soap, cereals, sippy cups, toys etc.
