Swimsuits, bikinis or swimming trunks are an obvious choice, though it helps to pack two of a kind especially if you are going to spend multiple days at the beach. Pack light cotton tops, tank tops, t-shirts and shorts. Of course, when staying at beach side luxury resorts in Sri Lanka including properties such as Blue Water Club Suites you can easily access the shore, so changing clothes is not a hassle.


While you may be envisioning barefoot freedom, it’s always a good idea to have some flip-flops with you! If you are going to do some exploring away from the beach, pack a pair of sandals or sneakers, while if you are planning to enjoy fine dining, having formal shoes or heels is a good idea.


Pack a good beach bag which can fit in most of the stuff to take to the beach. Of course, it’s also worth having a “wet bag” to keep your wet items separately and a “dry bag” to keep equipment like your camera and phone safe.

Other Essentials

A good sunscreen (SPF 30 minimum), beach hat and moisturizing cream are essential since you will be spending most of your time in the sun. Also worth packing are sunglasses to keep out the glare and toys or game-related items for some fun family times.
