When one thinks of a honeymoon, a beach is a location that almost immediately sprouts to mind. A “beach” and a “honeymoon’ are two words which have almost become synonymous with each other. Be it the pristine beaches of Thailand, the ultimate retreats in Miami or the party capital of India, Goa, packing for a perfect beach honeymoon can be quite tasking. As you gather all your basic necessities for your beach honeymoon and then a little more, you’re constantly worried if whatever you have packed will render you a fabulous look when you hit the glossy sands. If you are going to a beach to enjoy the sun and sea while you spend some quality time with your loved one on your honeymoon, this checklist is the ultimate guide for all your beach essentials for a stress-free vacation.
1. A Pair of Sunglasses
Every person who loves to take a break and hit the beach will swear by the fact that sunglasses are one of the essential things that you need to pack for your vacation. The sun can be harsh on your eyes when you are out and about the whole day frolicking around the beach. So, make sure to pack at least one pair of your favourite sunglasses to shield your eyes. Let’s not forget that a cool pair of sunnies will instantly make you appear cooler too.
2. Flip Flops
One of the most important things to remember for a perfect beach holiday is not to carry more than three pairs of footwear as there is almost no need for any heavy shoes while you are at a beach. So carry some peppy, trendy and comfortable pairs of flip-flops that you can shuffle through the sand without having to worry about anything.
3. The Stand Out Beach Towel
Looking for your towel while you are ready to get out of water can be a tedious task as most towels tend to look similar. So, when on your beach honeymoon, make sure you pack a towel that stands out from the crowd, be it a bright colour, an unusual pattern or a distinct check pattern, make sure that it can easily catch your eye.
4. A Moisturiser with SPF
We all love to soak in some sun when we hit the beach. Vitamin C is definitely essential for the body. But exposure to sunlight for a long period of time can strip your skin of moisture and essential oils. So, a powerful moisturiser is the top priority in your packing list to protect your skin from UV rays, pollution and free radicals.
5. The Perfect Wardrobe
Your beach wardrobe is definitely something you need to feel comfortable in. However, some things are a complete necessity when it comes to spending your honeymoon on a beach. Swimwear that flatters your body type is an absolute necessity. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a complete bikini; you can always opt for bikini tops with shorts. Choose tunics made of light materials as you can use it as a cover-up for your bikini during the day and turn it into a dress or a top by the evening to go out for a great night with your better half. For your beach honeymoon, make sure to leave clothes made of a material that needs maintenance like ironing or dry cleaning at home, as you don’t really need them on a beach.
6. Bare Essentials
Be it travel size toiletries, personal hygiene products, electronic chargers, a sun hat or earphones; make sure to pack the minimal essentials that you require as an individual. If you are a reader, nothing can be better than having a great book to read while sunbathing and drinking your favourite cocktail by the beach. Similarly, if you enjoy clicking photographs, make sure you have your camera ready because beaches are a treasure chest of picture-perfect moments. These things will surely make your honeymoon a vacation that you will remember for the rest of your life.
