1 Sun protection: Pack sun protection products for your entire body: sunscreen (SPF 15 or greater), lip balm with sunscreen, and aloe vera gel for potential burns 

2 Carry microfibre towel: Have fun with a floral or striped towel. Microfibre towels are a brilliant idea. They're super light and thin, saving you plenty of space.

3 Cover up: Take a cover-up for your swimsuit. A t-shirt, or a sheer dress or a kaftan. Take an extra change of clothes in case you go somewhere after the beach. Glam-up your evening with a sexy (almost) sheer maxi dress work on top with your swim-wear. Soft-flowy-relaxed. Take a hat to shield some of the sun's rays or a fancy umbrella.

4 Take a beach blanket: Beach blanket is made of parachute fabric which is light weight, non bulky, covers a picnic sized area and the sand shakes off of it easily. It should be wide enough to cover adequate space but thin enough to fit into your bag.

5 Must-carry: Keep it really simple with just lip gloss, bronzer and waterproof mascara. Don't miss Sunglasses.
