One of the goodness of traveling to the beach, besides the sea, the sand and the cocktails with tiny umbrellas in it, is to travel “light” as the usual clothing to wear at the beach is mostly made from light and thin fabric which will make it very easy when packing for your trip.
Although I am an easy going traveler, I know a lot of people (especially females) that take very seriously the packing process. One tip that can help you is to make a detailed list where you can check off every item as you are placing it on the luggage.
If you are planning your next escape to the gorgeous Rocky Point beaches, you must know that the weather is usually warm and ideal to have outdoor activities most of the year. Because of its map location, you can enjoy sunny days and nights full of refreshing sea breeze. On average the Rocky Point temperature is around 83º F (28º C) except for the winter months (October-February) and the beaches are at its best so you can have a great swim or just lay down on the sand to sunbathe.
Keeping in mind these tips, here is a list of my necessary items to travel to the beach for a weekend:
- 2 bathing suits
- 2 tops
- 3 dresses
- 2 pair of shorts of cropped pants
- 1 pair of jeans (depending on the weather)
- 1 hat
- 1 pair of sunglasses
- 1 pair of sandals
- 2 beach dresses or beach wrap to use on top of bathing suits
- 1 cardigan in neutral color
- 3 changes of underwear
- 1 pajama
- 1 beach towel
- Sunscreen with SPF 50 (minimum)
- Lip balm
- Body lotion and face cream
- Anti-fizz serum (remember that when you are at the beach humidity gets in to your hair and to have a little of control this is a basic tip)
About make up for the ladies…remember that when you are at the beach less is more, so don’t make it to complicated by taking your whole make up kit, a little mascara (waterproof of course), lip gloss and blush, and you will look fantastic! And you can give your skin and hair a little break well needed.
For obvious reasons on my list, I focus on women, but if you are a guy, with a pair of shorts, a pair of t-shirts and sunscreen you will be ready to have a great time on your vacation in Rocky Point. And of course, do not forget your best attitude and you will have a wonderful time.
What are your basics to go to the beach? Do you plan an outfit for each day? Or you are more spontaneous? I will love to read your comments.
