What to pack for a beach holiday?

Everyone finds lists useful, they help save time, stress and makes it less likely you’ll forget something important. Packing right for a beach holiday is all about preparation because sometimes buying things in stores right by the beach in tourist hotspots can be expensive. Here’s our list of things you should remember to bring for your beach holiday.

  • Sunscreen and SPF lipbalm (do no underestimate the strength of the sun here in Australia! It’s really not an SPF2 kind of place, think SPF25+ for adults and SPF50 for children)
  • Aftersun or aloe vera gel/cream/balm
  • Sun hats
  • Beach towels or blankets
  • Beach umbrella
  • Portable beach chairs or loungers
  • A good book or Kindle
