Packing for a beach vacation is something that doesn’t have to be complicated. For starters, since you are going to a warm destination this means that you won’t have to worry about packing bulky items like heavy coats, sweaters, or snow boots.
If you aren’t much of a fashion savvy type of guy you might struggle about what exactly you will need. Look no further. Here are the basics of what you should put in your suitcase before getting on the plane to your beach vacation.
At Least 2 Pairs Of Shoes
You should have a comfortable pair of shoes which are appropriate for walking around the town. They should be versatile for either evening wear or day wear and should be supportive enough on the soles of your feet for walking long periods of time.
In addition to a pair of shoes which are good for walking in the streets, you should also make sure that you have a proper pair of shoes for hitting the beach. Usually, a flip flop or sandal is a great beach shoe which can be worn from your hotel to the beach without having to worry about lacing up or worrying about getting sand in them. They should be comfortable and look good with a bathing suit.
If you are going to a beach destination, you better believe that you are going to hit the beach. Otherwise, what is the point of going to a place which is centered around the ocean? Make sure that you pack a pair of swim trunks so that you are ready to roll when it comes time to jump in the water.
Make sure that you really take the time to buy a pair of swim trunks which you feel comfortable and confident in. Wearing something that you feel awkward in is just going to make you feel reserved and unlikely to let loose.
Depending on where you go you may be in temperatures of over 100 degrees or more. Hats are a great way to keep the hot sun off your face and reduce the risk of getting a sunburn on your face, neck, or top your head.
Not only do hats protect you from the sun, but it’s a great lazy way to still look good but not have to go through the hassle of styling your hair. Since you’re on vacation you want to have to be worrying about as little as possible.
Tank tops are in fashion not only for women but for men as well. Although t-shirts are fine, in really high temperatures tank tops keep you much cooler and you don’t run the risk of getting the infamous “farmers tan” on your arms.
