Beach honeymoons are naturally romantic. There’s just something about the combination of sun, waves, and gorgeous scenery that makes them ideal settings to escape the world with your loved one. Before the eagerly-anticipated quality time, however, you first need to pack—and that can sometimes be a chore.

In this article, we’ll try to make things easier for you. Here, we’ll go over a checklist of items you need to bring with you, so that you can ensure a romantic, stress-free, honeymoon by the beach.

1. Essentials

Remember to bring your identification, travel reservations, and other important documents with you at all times. Keep these handy inside your carry-on so that you always have access to them. You can also take pictures of them on your phone.

  • Passport and visa
  • Driver’s license
  • Plane or train tickets
  • Hotel or resort bookings
  • Travel insurance
  • Emergency contact information
  • Cash

2. Clothing

Beach vacations are relatively easy to pack for since you’ll typically want to bring lighter clothes. When deciding what clothes to bring, remember to prioritize comfort and versatility. Also, check what the forecasted weather is, so you can prepare accordingly. You might want to bring a dressier outfit with you, especially if your plans involve a romantic dinner at a fancy place.

  • Shirts and blouses
  • Shorts, skirts, and comfortable bottoms
  • Bathing suits
  • Sleepwear
  • Underwear and socks
  • Sunglasses and headwear
  • Flipflops and comfortable shoes

3. Grooming

Bring a few self-care essentials with you so that you can look your best all throughout the trip. You can put them all in one bag that you can tuck away into your luggage or carry-on, so that you have everything you need in one place.

  • Deodorant
  • Moisturizer
  • Hair products
  • Oral hygiene products
  • Razor and tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Toiletries

4. Protection

Beach vacations can expose you to harsh elements, but you can be ready for them by packing a few important items. Store these in another bag that you can take with you as you go see the sights and have fun outdoors.

  • Sunscreen and ointment
  • Insect repellant
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Medication
  • First-aid kit

5. Moodsetters

Set a romantic tone all throughout your vacation by packing a few goodies to make your partner feel special. You’re encouraged to approach this with a creative mindset, and the effort you put into it can pay off handsomely on your trip.

  • Intimate apparel
  • Massage oils
  • Perfumes and scents
  • Thoughtful gifts for each other

6. Electronics

Remember to bring only the electronics that you absolutely need on your trip. Beach settings are not particularly ideal for electronic devices, so avoid taking too many of them with you. Doing so can mean that you’ll travel less encumbered, and you’ll be able to give more attention to your partner. Also, protect the electronics you decide to bring with appropriate bags and gear.

  • Phone and charger
  • Camera
  • Power adapter
  • Earphones
