St. Maarten Packing List: Clothes + Shoes
5 – 6 Dresses: I personally love wearing dresses on trips, especially tropical vacays! They’re breezy, easy to pack, and always look great in photos 😉 See my list of favorite dresses here.
4 – 5 Tops: While I mostly wear dresses, I did pack a couple of T-shirts and nice shirts just in case.
2 – 3 Swimsuits: I brought a couple of swimsuits on my trip to St. Maarten, two bikinis (for when one is still wet), and a one-piece. Linked my favorites here.
1 – 2 cover-ups: cover-ups are great for walking to and from the pool or beach! Or wearing with a pair of jean shorts throughout the day.
2 – 3 pairs of shorts: I brought one pair of jean shorts and a couple of pairs of athletic shorts for just hanging around/sleeping
Pajamas: I recommend a lightweight PJ set because it can get hot and humid in St. Maarten!
Bras + Underwear + Socks: Always plan for a couple of extra pairs of underwear! As far as bras go, I always bring 1 or 2 regular ones and a strapless too. Packs a couple of pairs of socks if you’re planning on bringing tennis shoes.
Rain jacket: I would recommend packing a lightweight rainjacket, St. Maarten gets a lot of random showers. They usually don’t last long but it’s goo to be prepared!
Shoes: I recommend bringing sandals for the beach and pool (obviously), a pair of wedges for dinners or going out, and then a pair of tennis shoes as well. Need some new wedges or sandals? Check out my list of favorites here.
Hats: You should definitely pack a beach hat! I also brought a baseball hat for traveling days if my hair was a mess.
Purse/Beach Bag: I brought two bags, one kind of carry-all beach bag for going to the pool or beach. I also brought a fun purse for dinners or going out! More fun beachy purses saved here.
Jewelry: I love to bring fun jewelry on vacations, I feel you can get away with more 😉 Here are some of the earrings I brought, all are super cheap on Amazon!
Sunglasses: I usually bring one or two pairs just in case one gets lost! Plus, it’s fun to rock a bold pair of white ones whenever you’re on a tropical vacay! See more here.
St. Maarten Packing List: Toiletries
Here is the list of toiletries and beauty products I recommend packing for a trip to St. Maarten:
- Toothbrush + paste

- Meds/First Aid
