Now that your vacation rental home is booked and your transportation plans are made, it’s time to focus on packing! Pack Light! Leave all your fancy stuff at home. The Florida Keys style is much more laid back and comfortable. You definitely will not need any of that stuff to fish, dive, snorkel or to lay on the beach.
#1 Must Have
A bathing suit and bathing suit cover. (Yes, it seems obvious that you would need that but you would be surprised by how many times people forget them.) There is no need to change after your swim at the Cabana Club just throw on your bathing suit cover and grab something to eat at the snack bar. Or settle at the bar for a cool and refreshing margarita.
#2 Must Have
Flip flops. Shoes are not required, trust me.
#3 Must Have
Swim shoes. While coral and coral rock are very pretty to look at, it is not fun to step on. The rock is very pointy. Don’t forget to pack a pair for the little ones too.
#4 Must Have
Sunscreen. The sun is extremely hot and bright here especially during our summer months. It is amazing how fast your skin can burn. Don’t forget to apply it and apply it often.
#5 Must Have
Pack a hat for extra protection and to keep the sun out of your eyes. Works great in a pinch to put your hair up!
