There’s nothing like a day at the beach! For some, packing for a barefoot retreat can be a grueling task. Packing the perfect bag is the first step of ensuring that your beach excursion is nothing short of pure bliss. Here are a few tips on how to pick the right bag and pack the right stuff to guarantee that you have the best bag at the beach!
The best bag to choose is one that is water-proof and on the bigger side, with plenty of compartments. A thick-lined bag that is water-proof will protect all of your belongings from sand and water. Bags with plenty of compartments allow you to separate items that do get damp and full of sand such as flip-flips and towels, from other items.
The most important items to remember to pack are sun protection, lip balm, insect repellent, food, towels, and food and water to stay hydrated. Make a checklist if it helps you to remember these important objects. Items such as sun protection and water bottles are most imperative to have as they can make or break your vacation. Sun sickness and dehydration are two illnesses that can easily be prevented by packing the proper essentials in your beach bag.
We also recommend packing Ziplock bags. These handy, kitchen tools will help keep some of your belongings safe from sand and water. Throw your iPod and cell phone in these bags to prevent damage.
Be the ultimate packer! Rolling towels and clothes helps save a lot more space as opposed to folding them. Place these items on the bottom of the bag with smaller things on top. Simple measures like this will enable you to pack everything efficiently.
