 Is it a resort or are you renting a place ? do they provide linens for the beds ? If not make sure you pack them.

Surround yourself with people that add to your life not subtract from it.

Depends on how long, which beach and what we're doing when we're not on the beach or in the pool.  The week during Christmas I packed two bathing suits, three sarongs, a pair of jeans, a pair of linen cargo pants, seven pairs of undies, bras, a pair of shorts, a few shirts, a linen shift, pair of Tevas, pair of flip-flops, nice slip-ons, one wide brimmed hat, a pillow and two or three pillow-cases, a towel, iPods, Kindle, new spray bottle of #70 sunscreen, new stick of face #70, tube of shea butter, bottle of aloe, misc. toilettries and an Epi-Pen.  (I'm allergic to EVERYTHING.)

Oh, wait, for the whole family?  Well, in addition to all that stuff, a few more pillow cases (this was a hotel, usually we rent a house and I don't bother with extra cases).  If we're at a hotel, I may bring a pack of cards too, but that's it.  If we rent a house, I bring groceries, plastic containers and maybe a dog.
