Must-Haves For A Sunny Beach Break With The Girls


I don’t know if it’s just me, but in my head, summer is all about getting away and having a good time with your nearest and dearest. If this summer you’re heading off for a much-deserved beach break with the girls, you’re most probably counting down the days til you can jet off.


Whether you’re heading to somewhere like Zante, or are going somewhere a little more upmarket, like Fiji, you need to pack all the right things. The question is, what are the fashion and beauty must-haves for a beach break with the girls? And also, how can you ensure that you look your best while sunning it up on the beach?

Below, I’ve put together a list of all the essentials you need to have an amazing time away with the girls. As well as a few tips for ensuring that you prepare properly and look and feel great while you’re there. Whether you plan to spend your time partying or sunbathing by the pool, here’s all the best preparation and packing tips that you should know.

Let’s talk holiday preparation


You want to look amazing from the start to the end of your trip, right?

To do that, two days before your trip get a spray tan. This will make sure that when you first strip off by the pool you’re not pale and pasty but beautifully bronzed. Opt for a light bronze, nothing too dark as you’ll tan while you’re there.


If you dye your hair, get it redone a few days before your trip. Or, at least, have the roots redyed. While you’re at the salon, you could also get your nails done - acrylics or gel is best because these last the longest.

Don’t want to bother with shaving while you’re away? Then, a couple of days before your trip, get a full body wax. This will remove all excess body hair and leave your skin feeling soft and silky smooth.

What are the beach break essentials?


Looking and feeling good on vacation isn’t just about the preparation, it’s all about what you’ve got in your suitcase. So packing the right things is essential.

Swimwear and a cover up is, of course, a must. Pack at least three swimsuits, so that you can mix things up, depending on what you’re doing. Don’t just pack bikinis, pack a couple of different options, such as a tankini. It’s also worth packing a cover up or two so that you have something to pop on over your swimwear when walking back from the beach.

Don’t forget to pack a few pretty pieces of jewelry, such as necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. So that you have bits that you can mix and match of wear with each outfit. If you have any piercings, like a navel piercing, for instance, take the time to find a pretty new belly bar for it. Think about the bikinis you’ll be wearing and choose a bar that will match them. Or, pack a couple of different ones so that you can swap and change them whenever you want to.

A sun hat and a pair of sunglasses are also essential. Unless you want to get too hot, having these is a must. A pretty straw hat could be ideal - these are incredibly in right now. As for your sunnies, make sure to pick a pair that comes with UVA and UVB protection for your eyes. This is important, as just like your skin, your eyes can also suffer from sun damage.

A few pretty pairs of sandals are all a must. Aim to pack a few daytime pairs as well as a couple of pairs that are better suited to wearing to restaurants and bars.

So there you have it, a guide to the essential items for a girl’s beach break in the sun.
