The sounds of waves crashing against the shore. Your feet are in the sand. Seagulls are soaring through the air as you take in the serenity of the sun rising on the horizon.
1. A Foldable Beach Hat
I travel a lot and I promise you, although often forgotten, a beach hat is something you’ll never regret putting on the packing list! A cute, foldable hat will get lots of use. For instance, you can tame frizzy humid hair, control tangles from the windy ocean breeze and importantly, protect your eyes and face from the sun.
I pack the Rich Pitch Black Tweed fedora from SolEscapes on my layovers. This hat is a straw style tweed hat, with an accent black ribbon. It is completely foldable, squishable, and packable! It gets smashed in my bag day in and day out – but still can be formed back to it’s original shape immediately! Not only that, this $40 travel fedora offers a very important protection from the sun – 50+UPF! It is a key component to protecting your delicate face and neck when you are spending time at the beach, pool or frankly, outdoors!
2. Microfiber Beach Towel
This isn’t your typical towel. A microfiber towel is superior to it’s terry cotton cousin, because it is lighter, smaller and fits much better in your carry on!
I highly recommend SolEscapes’ exclusive Travel Lux Microfiber Beach & Pool Towel. This towel comes in a whimsical sea life print in: orange, turquoise blue and pink. The towel is both large and luxurious. I can wrap my whole body in it – bigger than you average beach towel! The Microfiber material is soft and can quickly dry you off after the beach, pool or even a waterfall in the forest. They are $69, a worthy price for the discerning traveler.
The towel repels and absorbs water quickly, which I found out after a surprise Hawaiian rainstorm. I took coverage under my towel and was shocked how well it deterred water and didn’t soak through like a typical towel would have. It was a great replacement for an umbrella that day!
Next time you pack a towel for a trip and want to lighten your load, consider this perfect towel. It is so compact, it takes up less room than a couple pairs of socks!
