Getting ready for your trip to Myrtle Beach? Then you’re probably thinking about what you need to pack. Some items are a given, like your swimsuit, flip-flops, and your electronics. However, there are some things you might not think about packing with you. When you’re trying to decide what to bring with you and what to leave at home, consider throwing these four things to bring on your Myrtle Beach vacation!

1. Reef-Safe Sunscreen

You’re probably already planning to pack sunscreen or purchase some when you arrive in Myrtle Beach. However, we recommend looking for a brand of reef-safe sunscreen. Many people aren’t aware that the chemicals and traditional sunscreen can have a negative impact on our oceans. Some of these items end up harming the reefs and the creatures that live under the water. However, by using reef-safe sunscreen, you can protect yourself from the sun’s rays and ensure that the marine life of Myrtle Beach is protected as well.

2. Comfortable Walking Shoes

When you’re spending time on the beach, you’re probably going to be wearing flip flops or sandals. But you’ll also want to have a pair of comfortable walking shoes in your bag. When you are checking out attractions like the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk or any other land-based destination, you’re bound to get some serious steps in. Especially if you plan to go to a local Botanical Garden or nature preserve, you’ll definitely want a pair of supportive tennis shoes. Your feet will thank you for it!

3. Cooler Bag

Particularly if you’re flying to the Myrtle Beach area, you may not have the room to bring a cooler. You also probably don’t want to buy one when you get here, since you may not be able to take it back home with you. A cooler bag is the answer to your problems! Simply fold it up and pack it into your suitcase, then when you’re ready to head out to the beach, fill it with ice and your favorite drinks and snacks. You can easily transport your bag to and from the beach and rest easy knowing you have everything you need for a fun day in the sun.

4. A Light Sweater

This last item is something you probably don’t think about bringing to the beach: a sweater. If you’re traveling to Myrtle Beach in the summer months, a sweater is probably the last thing on your packing list. However, we promise it’s worth it. If you want to explore Myrtle Beach in the early morning or the late evening hours, temperatures can drop significantly without the sun to warm you up. Having a light sweater to throw on will ensure that you can keep enjoying the city no matter the hour.

No matter what your vacation has in store, from lounging on the sand to enjoying Myrtle Beach watersports to checking out local museums and more, these four items will help you make the most of your vacation. Now all that’s left to do is figure out the activities you want to experience while you’re here!
