The long wait is finally over. Time to put away your laptop and head for the beach. You used to dream about it; the crystal clear waters, the white sand, the cool breeze and the calm waves brushing against your feet. You have been planning it for almost a year and now, you cannot believe that it is finally coming true. Of course, you need to make sure that your trip to the beach is going to be a memorable one. Aside from completing your to-do list, you might also want to list the beach essentials so your vacation will be relaxing and with no stress.
Prepare your luggage
While it is a no-brainer, preparing your luggage means that you need to choose the type of luggage that is easy to carry and versatile. You’re going on a beach vacation so you shouldn’t pack too much. The often repeated advice, ‘travel and pack light’ rings true. The idea of going on a vacation is to relieve stress. Carrying heavy luggage is not your idea of a stress-free vacation. For personal items, it’s best if you consider putting them in a small bag. Some options to consider are wheeled bags, duffel bag, and a carry-on bag.
Anyone can get pretty excited about the thought of escaping the tiresome routine even for just a week. Even if you’re on vacation, you should make sure that you keep things organized. When you keep things organized, it will be easier for you to search for things you need. If you’re staying in a hotel, make use of the hotel dresser in organizing your stuff. Compressing your stuff is also a space saver, especially if you’re planning to extend your trip. Keep your clothes nice and neat by using a folder. They prevent clothes from wrinkling. Use zipper compartments for storing toiletries. It will be easier for you to keep track of your jewelry, makeup, and other necessities if you do this.
The Packing Checklist
Being well prepared ensures a worry-free beach vacation. For starters, here’s a list of basic items you should bring:
- Sun Glasses
Depending on the activity you’re going to participate in, you can also bring extra stuff like a snorkel, goggles, beach towels, an umbrella, and your camera.
You don’t want to ruin your beach vacation just because you’re sick, do you? Be sure to keep your health in check. Pack your prescription medications and hand sanitizer. You will also need a small first-aid kit while traveling. It’s always better to be safe rather than sorry. If you intend to travel internationally, you will also need to visit the website of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention so you will have an idea of the travel medication and vaccines required. You will also need to bring contacts, glasses and even allergy medication.
Your travel documents must also be accessible. Bring IDs for identification purposes. It can be exciting to travel but you also need to prepare your home before departure. Be sure that all doors and windows are locked. You will also need to set your alarm and unplug all of your appliances. Don’t forget to store your valuables in a safe place. Don’t waste your time worrying about whether you have locked up your house. Your vacation should be filled with fun, not stress and worries.
