What to pack for a Beach Holiday

It’s always hard to get the packing just right when going on a beach holiday but the following packing list is a good guide. Remember to wear the heaviest shoes, e.g.  trainers on the flight and to wear a few layers that can always be stuffed into your carry on bag once on board. To get the best ‘capsule’ wardrobe, start with a coloured skirt and try to match your tops to the colours in the skirt so everything mixes and matches. try to match shoes and accessories to these colours as well. The following list is based on a one or two week holiday:

  • 6 x bottoms – trousers, jeans, shorts &/or skirts
  • 2 x going out tops
  • 1 x dress
  • Selection of mainly plain tops for day and evening
  • 1 or 2 cardigans
  • 1 x jacket
  • 2 /3 x bikinis/swimsuits
  • 1 x sarong &/or 1 x kaftan (to match)
  • 1 x beach towel
  • Accessories – keep simple, use to add interest + tie in with colour palette.
  • 3 x pairs of shoes – flip flops, heels &/or “walking shoes”
  • Selection of jewellery – necklaces, earrings, bracelets
  • 1 or 2 wraps/pashminas
  • 1 x Belt?
  • Sunglasses
  • 1 x Beach bag, evening bag & day bag
  • Sun hat
  • PJs & underwear
