  • It really depends on what all I plan on doing. JUST the beach? Maybe two pairs of flip flops. Beach and a little sighseeing? A pair of flip flops and a pair of sneakers. Will I being going out to dinner? A nice pair of sandals.

  • Romantic trip? A nice dress outfit with some sexy sandals - jeans/shorts/capri and flip flops (if you like em) or comfy sandals for lazy days shopping. and tennies for longer walks.

  • I always over pack. Then I go home with clean clothes I never wore. Definitely bring beach shoes and 2 other sandals. That is enough.

  • 1 pair of flip flops, 1 pair of sneakers and 1 pair of nice sandals/shoes for black because black goes w/everything. I outfit them up...I like my shoes to match what I'm wearing that day but shoes take up SO much room so I try to go w/colors that go w/everything and pick shoes that go w/more than 1 outfit.

  • Depends on the activities planned. I just returned from 10 days in Hawaii for pleasure and business. I needed sandals, dress shoes (black and white leather espadrilles), running shoes, hiking shoes and flippers. Pleasure is one thing, but business conferences and dinners require much , much more-

  • I grew up in surf city usa.
    I always bring 1 pair sandals...since I'm barefoot most of the time (usually waterproof and brands like Volcom, Roxy. Reef)
    bathing suit
    shorts/tank or dresses
    Sweatshirt if you are staying til dusk.
    shades and tons of sunblock.

    Since you are staying several days I would also bring jeans, yoga pants or sweats/lounge pants and a few tank tops or casual beach type dresses.
    Have fun!!!
    Once you are at the beach you won't be too concerned with what you are wearing, your focus will be on the fun things to do!
