Time to pack for your next travel adventure, so here is What Not To Have On Beaches Vacation Travel! The last thing you want is for your valuables taken while your swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving or just relaxing on the beach. With all my travels, I have taken all these items mentioned, not to have on the beach. Let me share with you my alternatives and tips to make your trip less stressful that I have learned along the way.
Items Not to Take On Beaches Vacation
Purse or Wallet: Taking your purse or wallet is asking for someone to steal your credit cards and all your money. Only take money you need and an ID. I have found a waterproof container that will hold 1 key, ID and bills. [see picture at bottom of article] This container hangs around the neck or waist and is with you at all times. Makes you beaches vacation easier.
Expensive Jewelry: Flashy jewelry is showing everyone you have money. Try and take inexpensive jewelry that would not make you sad if you lost or had it stolen.
Electronics: First off the heat is to much for electronics like your phone, laptops, e-readers, and tablets. I like to take my phone but put it into a waterproof bag that is clear and has a cord to hang around my neck. That way I can take pictures or answer my phone. If you have an underwater camera, you can buy straps that will fit around your wrist. Sand is not electronic friendly.
Bug Spray: Bug Spray has negative effects on the ocean reefs. Let us try and protect our ocean and not use.
Keys: Perfect place to loose your keys is in the sand. Take 1 key and put them in the waterproof case mentioned in #1. Now you able to still get into your room.
Alcohol: Careful when drinking alcohol in the sun and heat. Dehydration can happen quickly and drinking alcohol can acceleration the affects. Please make sure to drink lots of safe water in a re-useable stainless steel bottle.
Passport: This is one way to lose your passport wether it is stolen or lost in the sand. Try and lock it into your room safe or have the hotel desk hold it for you. Passports are precious and hard to replace. Tip: Make sure to always have a copy of your passport. That copy can also fit into you container in #1.
Chairs: Why burden yourself with dealing with chairs. Just rent a lounge chair and umbrella or some resorts will offer for free.
Overview – What Not To Have On Beaches Vacation
These are just a few items and tips that I have found to be helpful when I pack for my Beaches Vacation Travel. I have witnessed fellow travelers at resorts on the beach losing their items along with their expensive beach bags. They become a target with flashy items. I only bring things that I can be easily replaced. Items that I must have are placed in waterproof cases that will be attached to my neck or wrist. Happy Travels!
