Of course you’re going to need a swimsuit! I like to bring both one and two pieces when I travel… sometimes after a night of frozen tropical drinks, a one piece feels way more covering 😉 Below are some of my favorites, but I have saved A TON on this Amazon list and am always adding more!
I personally love a really big beach towel… nothing is more annoying than laying out on the beach and having your calves and feet hang off the towel getting all sandy.
Not a necessity, of course, but a beach vacay is the perfect excuse to break out some fun, statement earrings!
It would be such a tragedy to lose your wedding or engagement ring, which is why I love the idea of wearing a cheap dupe while traveling! You can find shockingly cheap ones out there. The one below is from amazon.com and less than $12 — NO JOKE!
I know there are tons of self tanners out there, many of which are pretty expensive. Personally, I use Jergens Instant Sun Mousse (I get the Deep Bronze color) and love it… it’s super cheap and dries in 60 seconds!
Waterproof Phone Case
Nothing ruins a phone faster than saltwater and sand… protect your phone with a waterproof case! Also lets you take some cool underwater photos!

3 years ago I was in Fiji 😱 Fiji is hands down my favorite place I’ve ever snorkeled, it was like being in an aquarium (which I love lol)🐠 it was also my first solo trip! - Do you enjoy snorkeling/scuba diving? Where’s your favorite?✨ #FlashbackFriday #fiji #fijitime #fijisnorkeling #fijinow
BONUS: Editable Beach Packing List Google Doc
I typically make my packing lists in a google doc and list out everything I need for a trip. I adjust it for whatever destination I am going to, but for the most part it stays the same…. sharing my beach vacation packing list here!
Click the photo and it will take you to the actual Google doc that you can “make a copy” of and then edit for yourself!
