5 Tips for Your Next Beach Trip!


Few things in life feel better than having our toes in the sand, the sun on our backs and the soothing sound of ocean waves in our ears.  Here are a few why-didn’t-I-think-of-that tips to help make your beach trip literally and figuratively a breeze.

Put aloe vera gel in the fridge.
Pure aloe vera is great for soothing any kind of sun burn or sting or just a great way to replenish your skin after a long day at the beach.  Be sure to put your aloe vera in the fridge before you head out to the beach.   It’s best when chilled as it eases the pain in a matter of seconds.  Every one of our condos comes furnished with a refrigerator so be sure to make use of it during your stay!  Don’t feel like bringing more things with you?  Fret not, we’ve got your covered.  Our on-site Port Store is stocked with our favorite sun protection products.  One of our all time favorites: Sun Bum Cool Down.  Treat yourself and treat your skin!



Leave your expensive sunnies at home.
It breaks our hearts whenever guests tell us they brought a pair of $200+ sunglasses with them and either lost them or damaged them at the beach.  Save yourself the grief and buy some cheaper versions instead.  Cheaper sunglasses should always offer the same amount of UVA and UVB protection and if you lose them you won’t be nearly as concerned had you lost your favorite pair!  We have a wide variety of styles and sizes for men, women, and children so stop into our Port Store and take a browse during your stay.  Our favorite picks: polarized lens sunglasses.



Take toys to the beach (for the kids). 
One thing we know for sure is that kids love being active on the beach.  They love to build, dig, play and create.  Be sure to pack a variety of toys for them so they can maximize their fun time on the beach.  Forgot their favorite toy at home?  Fret not, we’ve got you covered.  Our on-site Port Store has a variety of age appropriate toys for the kids including boogie boards, kites, sandcastle kits, water guns and more.  Come take your pick!



Don’t skip breakfast.
It’s easy to make a beeline for our olympic sized swimming pool or want to head straight to the beach on your first day on our resort.  Often we forget our bodies need food, water and a break from the sun, and that means you could risk becoming suddenly dehydrated.  Make sure you and your family eat a hearty breakfast at the start of the day so you can be ready for a full day of outdoor activities.  Sundays we offer a Champagne Brunch Buffet on-site so you can be sure to satiate any and all hunger cravings for you and the kids!  Or order breakfast to be delivered to your room so you can take bites while getting ready.



Capture your family moments.
This might be our most important tip of all.  It’s easy to lose track of time while on vacation and forget to capture the precious moments you’ll be sharing with family and friends.  Don’t forget to stop every now and then to take a quick snap of your day.  We promise you’ll be glad you did, especially once you’re back at home, once the kids are all grown up and a number of other reasons why we all love looking back and revisiting old memories through a photograph.
