Summer is just a few months away and we think now is the perfect time for Beach Holiday Tips for Summer! Once you have made the decision and booked your beautiful luxury beachfront accommodation, then there is time to stop and think about our best tips to will ensure that your upcoming beach holiday is the best yet.

Inspired by the articles “10 Smart Tips for Better Beach Vacations”, and “Enjoying a fun and hassle-free beach holiday with your family” we’ve Australianised the content and added a few tips of our own!

The Top Dozen

  1. A lifeguard tip – always looked downwind for lost (small) children. Why? Because nine times out of 10 a small child will follow the path of least resistance and walk with the wind. So if your child goes missing on the beach, try following the wind first. 
  2. Baby powder on the skin allows clinging sand to slip right off.
  3. Slip (on a shirt), Slop (on sunscreen), Slap (on a hat), Seek (shade), Slide (on sunglasses).
  4. Pack a small spray bottle filled with vinegar in your beach bag. If anyone gets stung by a jellyfish, vinegar takes the sting out.
  5. Shop locally and look at your shop-a-dockets.  You are not only helping the local economy, you may find discounts for meals and sightseeing, and this could add up to quite a lot of savings. 
  6. Bring a very bright umbrella/sun shade and set up our towels and gear near a large landmark (like the lifeguard flags). It makes it easy for kids to find their way back  if they lose track of where they are on the beach, or if they are playing in the water and drift a bit.
  7. Swim between the flags – and other tips from Surf Life Saving Australia.
  8. Choose your destination wisely.With so many beautiful beach destinations out there, the choices might overwhelm you. Consider a few things including the date of your holiday, the number of days you’ll be spending, and of course, your budget. These factors will definitely make choosing your destination much easier.
  9. Know when and when not to take advantage of promotionsMake sure that they will not let you sacrifice your family’s comfort or enjoyment. For example, booking a cheaper airfare may sound like a good idea, but if it means dealing with cramped seats and lesser baggage allowance, spending a little more on your tickets may be a better option.
  10. Prepare your children for the holidayIf it’s your children’s first time to travel, talk to them about what they can expect during the trip.  If they are old enough, think about involving them in planning your holiday – or at least some of the fun activities you plan.
  11. Pack light but wisely Packing can really be a tedious task, especially when you are going to the beach with the whole family. Don’t overload and bring only the essential items for your beach holiday. Think about some cute swimwear for your children to make them more excited about the whole trip.
  12. Finally, make sure your children are safe during your holiday. Chose activities wisely, and minimise risks by watching them.  Consider a necklace/chain with your mobile phone number on a fun “tag” which the children can wear in case of emergencies.

All this talk about holidays really make me want to go now!  However, Summer is just a few months away and with the great weather we are already experiencing this winter in Casuarina (and some fun winter beach activities we have prepared for you), now could be the best time to inspire you to make that booking!

Happy holidays – dream about what is possible; believe you can do it; make the most of your annual leave; plan, book and enjoy your holiday; then dream about where you will go next!  It is your turn!
