What’s in my Beach Bag?
10 Essential Beach Bag items:
I love to carry a big Beach bag, wherein I can pack almost every bit of thing I need for the day out on the beach. Whether I am spending the whole day at the beach or doing a beach hopping along with the city sightseeing, this bag, which I had picked from Ishka Melbourne, easily goes along.
The Australian sun is really harsh on skin and if you’re planning a sunny escapade in the Aussie land than a Sunscreen with SPF 50+ is a must to carry along. I have a super oily skin and can’t manage with an oily sunscreen, hence, this one pick from the Drug store is perfect for me.
We love the sun but the sun always doesn’t love our skin, being the sun smart even during the vacay is an ideal thing to do. So I always remember to carry a statement hat throughout my Beach vacation
I hate to carry my expensive pairs to the beach, I have this irrational fear of losing them or misplacing them eventually.So, 2 pairs of regular wear are something I generally carry on a beach day out.
Having an extra pair of swimwear comes always handy, I prefer to carry an extra pair of Bikini along with me. If you’re doing a beach hopping or doing snorkelling along the Great Barrier Reef, having a spare pair of swimwear is always preferred to be carried along. This two Swimwear which I recently picked up from Top Shop Australia, is a Beach holiday must have.
- Sarong Dress:
I am a big fan of Sarong Dress, rather than just a Sarong, something you can slip on immediately once you’re our of the water and want to grab some quick lunch or brunch. This dress of mine from Top Shop, Australia is a must have in my Beach vacation. Absolutely Casual chic and effortlessly can be worn post your beach day as well as for evening drinks on the beach. Personally, love this dress and I make sure that I pack a couple of simple ones in my Bag.
We love the sand between the toes but not always, not all the beaches have silky sand, some of the beaches higher up in the Northern Queensland are rocky and murky during high tide. Carrying an extra pack of wet tissues does come handy and is an essential element of my beach packing list.
After Sun Moisturizer:
Sea water isn’t too friendly especially when you’re exposed to it for longer hours, hence a moisture-rich cream is something you need post the sun tan.
A smart pair of Flip-flops or sandals pairs well with the Sarong Dress or post beach city hopping! This gorgeous pair, which I had picked from Dotti is going in my Beach Holiday must haves.
Protective Phone Cover:
Last but not the least, you don’t want to miss out on the Instagram moments in your vacation, so make sure that you have a water resistant case for your phone to capture all the fun. Use this cheat sheet to remind yourself what to pack for a Beach vacation and especially in your beach bag.
