5 Essential Things To Pack For A Beach Getaway | SMA Travel Diaries.

As the weather gets hotter, the need for a getaway gets more essential. And what better getaway can you have in a tropical location than a beach getaway? 

There are a few essential things every girl should have in her duffel bag if she is going away for a beach vacation; so we have compiled a list of five essential things to pack for a beach getaway.

Before we get into it, this is not a list of the basics to get for your beach vacation, but the essentials to pack. It is simply a list of things you wouldn’t necessarily think of packing however essential they may be.

A waterproof phone case

You are going away for a while, but with the invention of social media, you are never really away. You will be taking instagramable pictures and showing them off to the world. And because it is a beach, a waterproof phone case is important. No one wants to come back from an amazing beach getaway and end up putting their phone in rice because they weren’t smart enough to protect it from the start.

High SPF sunscreen

Sunscreen is essential for any tropical vacation. This may very well be the most important thing to pack for a beach getaway. 

Pick a sunscreen with a high SPF to protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun. This way, you can enjoy your vacation without worrying about your skin.

Aloe vera gel

Aloe vers gel is essential for after sun care. This gel helps soothe the skin and moisturizes it so it doesn’t feel irritated after the extended exposure to the sun.

A hack to using this gel on sunburned skin is to put it in the fridge and apply cold to the affected area. You will thank us for this.

Personal hand held fan

Finally, we have this handheld fan by. These fans have been sweeping Instagram as brides add them to their wedding accessory. But did you know that this is also essential to pack for your beach getaway?

This is because it gets hot on the beach, and most times the sea breeze is only really cooling at night. So a mini fan like this will really add to your comfort while you relax on the beach.
