1) Beachwear: bikinis, sarongs, flip flops, beach bag and a huge hat.
I took one bikini with a 'skirt' bottom, but didn't realise that it was slightly too big, which meant that when I came out of the water the weight of it nearly pulled it off!! So I only really had one functioning bikini. I took 2 pairs of flip flops, which worked well, but I could also have done with an extra sarong. The one I took was really a scarf that I used on the plane, but it's so sheer it doubled up in use. Could definitely have used another one of those. The best investment for the beach was my massive straw hat, that my Baby bought me for 50p! It was like my own portable beach umbrella. Also here, it might be worth mentioning that I had 'around-the-apartment-skimpy-wear' too, for when it was too hot for clothes but my bikini was drying out from an earlier swim. I made good use of little bralets and shorts, in silk and cotton.
