Packing tips for your bespoke beach honeymoon
Is a beach honeymoon at the top of your list for top romantic travel options? But it’s hard to really enjoy yourself when you’re dragging around loads of stuff. This is the most romantic vacation you will ever take, so it’s important you spend the time to plan your honeymoon packing perfectly to ensure you get the best out of your trip and allow as much time as you can for romance. Also, by streamlining what you take to the beach to the essentials, you will have more time and freedom to enjoy yourselves as husband and wife (jumps for joy!)
Planning: By planning your honeymoon in advance will help with packing the essential items you will need for your vacation without having to buy any extras. Remember to pack lots of suntan lotion, lip balm, a hat and sunglasses. Remember to wash off any salt water and re-apply suntan lotion once you have finished swimming.
Don’t forget how you will transport any wet clothing such as swimsuits or towels from the beach to your hotel. Ziplock bags and carrier bags are great for keeping wet items separate and you’d want to keep sandy clothing away from your clean clothes. Having a rucksack with inside pockets is handy for storing valuables such as phones and keys whilst keeping them dry.
Clothing: There are so many different types of beachwear available depending on what you want to do on the beach and how long you are traveling for. Will you be going swimming in the water, tanning on a sun bed, relaxing under an umbrella, sipping cocktails at the bar or doing all of the above?
Clothes should be light and breezy to allow you to remain cool and comfortable even when the temperature starts rising. Even though you’re on the beach, it’s always nice to remain fashion conscious and keeping up to date with the latest trends and accessories – even if it’s just for your vacation pictures.
Swimsuits are a must for any beach vacation and it is a good idea to pack a kaftan to cover-up with when the sun is at it’s hottest or you are not in the water. They are also great in the evenings when the weather is a little cooler and classy enough to be worn to evening meals.
Beach dresses are also a great alternative and are easy to slip on or off and are ideal as they can provide cover when not in the water whilst also helping prevent the skin from burning
Footwear: For your footwear, you want your feet to have as much freedom as possible and be able to breath. Open footwear such as sandals, flip-flops or swimming shoes will give your feet the support they need whilst protecting them from sharp objects that maybe lying around. Another benefit is they are easy to clean the sand out.
Lingerie: Romance is in the air for your honeymoon, and even though you’re at the beach, it’s a great idea to go shopping for some beautiful lingerie before you leave and have it at your fingertips for those fun nights at the resort room – just the two of you! Choose some pretty intimates such as panties, bras and knickers, and a few special pieces like chemise and nighties that will make you feel romantic and beautiful, as well as special and little bit naughty!
No matter where you’re travelling, and which beach you’re relaxing at, ensure you pack lightly and have lots of colorful beachwear with you to bring that sense of style and chic to your beach honeymoon.
