10 Beach Tips to Remember:

  1. Before traveling, check the weather during your vacation dates. This will help you plan more efficiently and pack less. If your stay is for longer than one week, consider packing for just one week. (All Seaboard Hotels have convenient, affordable washers, dryers and/or laundry service.)
  2. Think polished, not dumpy. Leave the cut offs and torn tees at home. What if you ran into the client you’ve been courting or your significant other’s mother on your trip? Not that you will, but just in case!
  3. Bring an extra water tight bag or two. They fold up small and if you have a wet suit or sandy sandals, it will be easy to transport them without getting the rest of your clothing wet or dirty.
  4. Think about the type of beach you’ll be visiting and bring the appropriate shoes. Whether that is sandals, flip flops or water shoes, the right foot gear will make the trip more enjoyable.
  5. Bring 2 swimsuits so you’ll also have a dry one. And double check the weather to make sure you have the right weight of cover up with you.
  6. Choose a unique beach bag pattern so it’s easy to spot from far away. If it’s waterproof, and has a closable inside pocket, that is especially helpful to keep items dry and contained.
  7. Take with you what you brought. Drop a grocery bag into your bag to use as a convenient garbage bag for trash items while you are on the beach.
  8. Don’t get burned. Make sure you bring plenty of sunscreen, apply often and wear a hat. The sun is no joke and a nasty sun burn can turn a good vacation into an unbearable one. Think ahead and consider purchasing ocean-safe or reef-safe sunscreens.
  9. Do a little research to find out the do’s/don’t’s of your beach destination. Every beach has its own variations of rules, regulations and laws. Many times your hotel may have this list for reference.
  10. And if you are already reaching out to your hotel, ask about beach chairs, towels etc. that they supply to guests. This can make your beach packing list a bit shorter.
