I'm beach ready, Girl! - The Essential beach packing list
Apprx. Reading Time: 2 minutes
There are some for whom lying on a hammock by the beach, listening to the waves while the sun shines brightly with a Pinacolada in hand, equals a holiday. Some of us ensure we have at least one of these annually while others are lucky enough to head out more frequently. While some locations are quite predictable, in Europe, depending on where you're headed for your beach holiday it can get quite complicated! You may be blessed with steady sunshine or intermittent rains may play spoilsport. Other than a swim-suit there's lots more you need to carry if you're headed to the beach, to ensure you don't need to buy it, if you've forgotten to carry it with you! This is a list that I use consistently and keep updating if required for a beach holiday. Feel free to take off items you don't need if you want to get everything to fit in a carry-on.
Carry more of neutrals in your travel bag which can be re-used for different outfits
However, do carry a few statement pieces to get that perfect pop of colour. You can also use scarves and jewellery if needed
Opt for pieces that are versatile. A scarf can also be used as a cover-up!
Keep the outfits that require ironing or delicate care at home
Think of creative ways you could re-use outfits and try the look beforehand if possible to ensure it looks fab and you don't end up carrying more than you need
So to help make packing a breeze, here's a beach holiday packing list you could use to get it done in a jiffy!

[/su_column][/su_row] If you're still worried you've missed out something, why not check the Summer packing list? If you'd rather not spend a lot of time packing, think of innovative ways to re-use a piece. Imagine swimsuit with a skirt or denims (the top-half as a blouse) a shift-dress as a cover up, a scarf as a headdress, a cover-up or even around your tote! Once you head off, remember not to stress over what you've left behind! If you're headed to a place that's cheaper, you might need to buy items you've forgotten but they might end up being cheaper! I'd even suggest to stock up if so, for your next holiday (as long as you don't need to buy an additional bag!)
