Cory and I are getting ready for a trip to Cancun, Mexico, so I wanted to put together an essential beach packing list to help anyone else planning a future beach trip. Whether or not you’re planning a beach vacation, now is a wise time to shop these items because a lot of them are on major sale this time of year. The nice thing about packing for a beach getaway is that you don’t really need to pack that much. No jackets, boots, or sweaters are needed, so you should be able to fit everything in a carry-on suitcase. Sunshine is the perfect compliment to vibrant colors and bold florals, so have fun with your fabric choices.
Sandals // For all of the times that you’re not barefoot in the sand, you’ll want a few sandal options. These, these, and these are my favorite beach sandals because they can all be dressed up or down.
Beach Bag // You will always need a good beach bag to throw your towels, books, and water bottles in. Two of my favorites are this one and this one. I also really love this little straw clutch for nights out.
Swimsuit // This is a no brainer when it comes to beach essentials. I like to travel with a couple different swimsuits so I always have a dry one on hand. I am obsessed with this one piece, this high waisted suit, and this bikini.
Beach Towel // Everyone needs a good beach towel to lay on and dry off with after a swim. This one is bright and perfect for those hot days on the sand. Want something a little unique? Check out this round one. This one and this one are also super fun.
Sunglasses // In order to protect your eyes from the sun’s UV rays, you need a good pair of sunglasses. I used to buy less expensive sunglasses, but these & these are all polarized, which I found out is way better for your eyes.
I hope this list can help serve as a starting point for your next warm weather vacay! Did I forget anything? Let me know your beach essentials in the comments below.

P.S. This jumpsuit is the PERFECT airplane or travel outfit! It is so comfy, cute, and unlike most rompers, is super easy to pull off when you need to go to the bathroom!
