Any other guilty Amazon Prime shoppers out there?! It's dangerously convenient...especially when you have an upcoming trip and time is running short. What a lifesaver not to have to run all over town to pick up those last minute essentials!
Keep scrolling to see my 14 Amazon essentials for your beach vacation! I personally have almost all of these items and brought them with me on my recent Cozumel trip (where these photos were taken).
1 Portable iPhone Charger - I was in desperate need for a handy dandy iPhone charger for this trip...my battery runs out like crazy! This one charges multiple phones/times before needing a recharge. My only complaint is it's a bit heavier than I expected! Other than that, 10/10.
2 Knock-Off Chacos - I know I don't seem like a Chaco girl (probably cause I'm not), but I surprisingly wanted a pair for summer hiking, rocky beaches, etc. These are Skechers, but they're significantly cheaper and SO comfy. I personally think they're cuter than a lot of Chaco-ish options too. :) I've seen them fluctuate from $28-48 on Amazon, so definitely watch for price drops! I also found them here.
3 This dress is in rotation every few days at the moment...definitely in my top 5 most worn items of the summer! And it's only $21.99 on Amazon Prime! It seriously doesn't get better than that. (For sizing reference, I'm 5'7" and wearing a medium.)
4 Beach Coverup - I bought this coverup last year and it is SO cute and SO cheap. "Salty hair, coconut oil, big waves, hot sun." The picture doesn't do it justice on Amazon at all, which is such a shame. Definitely a fun tee for the summer, whether you use it as a coverup or not! The fit is oversized.
5 Elta MD Sunscreen - My current go-to sunscreen for my face, dermatologist approved. I wear it every day over my moisturizer, under my makeup. Great if your makeup doesn't have an SPF in it, or if you're going makeup free!
6 Alba Botanica Hawaiian Sunscreen - I mentioned this one in my recent Mexico Packing Checklist post. We found it in a 2-pack at Costco and fell in love with it while on this trip...it's reef safe and doesn't smell like sunscreen...AT ALL! (The only 2-pack I could find online is here.)
7 Palm Tree Kimono - I don't personally have this one, but have been eyeing it for a long time! I love kimonos for the summertime. They're so versatile, which is especially helpful if you're trying to pack light. Perfect coverup, cute with shorts and a tank, adorable over a sleeveless swing dress for dinner! Comes in lots of different pattern options.
8 Snorkel Set - Yes, I purchased a snorkel set for this trip! Cheaper than renting and so nice to have your own if your destination is a popular snorkeling/scuba diving area.
9 XXL Beach Bag - I guess this is such a mom move of me, but I always travel with a beach bag in the bottom of my suitcase if I'm anywhere close to a beach. It's always worth it! I don't have this particular one, but it meets all of my beach bag requirements. :)
10 Waterproof Case - Ugh, I just became a tourist. I will say I'm not responsible if your phone gets ruined because of this! Definitely test it out at home before you consider dunking it in the ocean. It made me so nervous, but my phone didn't get wet! Also nice for putting some cash or identification in if you don't want to bring your whole wallet to the beach.
11 Waterproof Camera Float - Ugh, not only am I a tourist...I'm a flashy tourist! I purchased this to attach to my waterproof case in the unlikely event that I dropped it...it floats! Can you tell I was nervous about this situation?
13 Heart Sunglasses - Another item I've been eyeing! Another "can't beat" item...$10! Would be so cute for a few girlfriends to all purchase! Comes in various color options.
14 Travel Steamer - I never travel without a travel steamer! I don't have this particular one, but mine is currently sold out and I have a friend who has this one. I have a full-size steamer at home since so many girly clothes are a delicate fabric and ironing is just not an option. One of the best travel purchases I could ever recommend!
