Summer is a great chance for many to unwind and relax. The sun is out, and the water is cold, but before heading to the beach, careful planning is a must.
Whether you are riding the waves in Hawaii, enjoying the view from the beachfront villas in Hua Hin, or just lying under the sun in the beaches in Copacabana, a simple planning would help a lot in making your vacation enjoyable and stress-free. Here are some reminders:
Find the right beach for the vacation that you want.
Decide what you want to do and that you expect for your vacation. If you want to enjoy the view while reading a book and sipping on your favourite dink, there are beachfront villas in Hua His just for you. If you would rather do something more adventurous, perhaps a beach where you can surf or go kayaking would be a better choice.
You might want to consider whether you are traveling with family or prefer the company of other adults. If it’s the former that you are planning, choose beaches and resorts with family-friendly activities and establishments. If it’s the latter, you might want to take a look at resorts and beaches where you can enjoy your time the most.
Don’t forget to protect yourself.
Since you’d spend a lot of time under the sun, don’t forget to bring and apply sunscreen. This can save you from painful sunburn or peeling when you get back home!
Choose one that’s waterproof, long lasting, and doesn’t leave you feeling sticky when applied. Skin care experts say it is best to apply it at least 30 minutes before you go out, and reapply every two hours or more often after sweating or swimming.
It’s also best if you can avoid direct sunlight when it is hottest. If possible, choose to stay in a shaded area from 10 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon so that your skin does not suffer too much.
Use insect repellents as well to avoid insect and bug bites.
Don’t forget your sunglasses as well. Protect your eyes with quality sunglasses that can block ultraviolet rays.
