Spring is here (what a relief!). Then before you know it, it’s already summer. Which goes to show that indeed, time flies. So before summer creeps in and catch you unawares, be sure to plan your summer weekend getaway in advance.

When it comes to summer weekend getaways, I’m a beach kind of girl. Hanging out at a beautiful beach rental in locations like St. George Island, Santorini, or the Hawaiian Islands. Sun, sand, sea, and sky—that’s my kind of thing. If you’d ask me to describe my perfect day, it would be on the sand with a great view of the turquoise water, a book in my hand, and a glass of a pastel-coloured drink within my reach. To achieve that perfect day, I make sure I have with me my 5 most important travel essentials.

Weekend Getaway Travel Essentials

1. Large Brim Hat

While I love the sun, I’m well aware of the dangers it poses, so I make sure I bring along a large brim hat for protection. It’s also handy when I eventually doze off (which happens every now and then).

2. Sunnies

Sunnies are of course for protection from the sun’s glare. And along with the large brim hat, it keeps me looking beach-appropriate and fabulous, to boot.

3. Water Bottle

For hydration; also comes handy when my cheapskate tendency strikes in and I don’t want to spend much.

4. A Good Book

I don’t go anywhere without a good book, much less at the beach, when I’ve got plenty of time on my hands to while away. Plus, I find the calming sound of the water, the cool breeze, and the smell of the sea very condusive to reading.

5. Sunscreen

I like my beach time leisurely and long, so I need me some sunscreen for protection.

Make sure to include these travel essentials to ensure your weekend beach getaway becomes part of your unforgettable travel experience.

    You know, I wish I was one of those people who could pull off a large brim hat. I’m usually more of a beanie type of girl and I can’t wear those at the beach!

      I love beanies, too! The thing is, I’m not very good with large brim hats, actually. But I persevere because I easily get red under the sun. 🙂
