I know that a lot of you are looking forward to being able to spend a bit of time in the sun. Many people opt for a beach holiday. In the past, people wanted to be near the sea, so they could enjoy the fresh air, swim and sunbathe in a comfy beach chair.
However, tourists are increasingly seeking out beaches where they can also enjoy activities like snorkeling, scuba diving, water-skiing, paddle boarding and more. Modern travelers want to try new experiences, so they want to do more than just sunbathe. If that describes you read on to see what you need to pack so you are ready to enjoy an adventurous day by the sea.
The right swimwear
Top of the list is a good-quality swimming costume or bikini. One that fits well and will stay in place regardless of what beach related adventures you want to enjoy. Fortunately, if you know where to look, it is not hard to find what you need. For example, JD Williams has a great range of swimwear available, this year. This means that no matter what you need, you can find it there. They cater for women of all shapes and sizes. Their range of beautiful swimming costumes and bikinis are very much on trend, yet still practical.
When you try your costume on, make sure that you go through the full range of movements. Crouching down, stretching your arms up above your head and bending over, will help you to choose a costume that will stay in place. You do not want it to slide around while you are snorkeling or water skiing.
High factor sun cream
It is very important to protect yourself from the sun. If you are in the sea, the sun’s rays will be reflected up from the water, so you can easily burn. Make sure your sun cream is a high factor one that cannot be washed off by the sea. It is also wise to wear a sunblock lip balm.
Choose sunglasses that are shatterproof and are designed to provide a high level of protection for your eyes. If you are doing something particularly active, opt for the type has a lanyard of some type incorporated into the design. That way if they fall off they will not sink to the bottom of the sea.
A good towel
You need a good-quality absorbent towel to dry yourself off. It also needs to be made from a material that dries quickly, so you can also use it to lie on.
A basic first aid kit
It is wise to pack a very basic first aid kit. That way if you get a scratch or scrape you can sterilize it properly and stop the sand getting into the open cut.
A good bag
Last, but by no means least, you need a good beach bag. It needs big enough to accommodate everything you need. But, it must not be too bulky because you do not want it to take up too much room in your case. Cloth beach bags are usually the best option.
