Get packed for your beach vacation - A mini-guide for luggage

Packing a bag and heading to a beach vacation is pretty simple, but here is a guide to making it that much easier for you.


Do some research about the place

Though most beach destinations tend to be tropical, not all of them are at the end of the day. For instance, a beach holiday in Sri Lanka would be completely different compared to a beach holiday in the colder part of Australia. Therefore, if you are travelling to Sri Lanka and are planning on staying at Kalutara there, research about the places to visit in Kalutara first. You might come across local travel blogs the likes of Travel Kalutara which will be extremely useful at this point.


The weather patterns

Read about the weather patterns in the area and see whether you will need a different variety of clothing based on the time of the year to visit in Sri Lanka. Most excursions and water sports would be the featured activities in a beachside holiday and therefore it is vital that you be properly attired and are ready to face any kind of weather situation. The best thing to do would be to call up your choice of accommodation and ask them what you must pack as a necessity.


About the gear

If you are going to be partaking in water sports activities it is better to find out if you can rent the gear in Sri Lanka or if you need to take your own gear. Packing your own gear would mean that you will have to carry more weight when you are flying around, therefore, it is always better to rent out the gear at your holiday destination.


Choose the best kind of travelling bag

Since it is going to be a beach vacation, a good bag will save you a lot of trouble when you are trying to deal with overloaded luggage during your trip. A beach vacation’s main motive is to make sure you are relaxed and this hassle will definitely not be relaxing. If you have an underwater camera make sure you pack it too. The best kind of clothing you can pack in a tiny hassle-free bag for a beach vacation is light cotton stuff.


Footwear for the beach holiday

Taking sandals and flip flops are the best thing to do during a beach holiday. Taking a pair of shoes might be useful if you are planning on exploring the town and taking a hike or two around the area. Other than that, there is no point in carrying too many kinds of footwear during a beach holiday as you will end up getting sand in all of them anyway.


Packing your clothes wisely

Instead of carrying many outfits, try to carry pieces of clothing that can be paired up and can be made into more than one outfit during your holiday. If you are carrying bulky clothes make sure that you wear these during your flight so that your load is lighter and you do not have trouble at check-in. The best kind of clothes to take during any kind of holiday is easy maintenance clothing that can be washed in any kind of water.
