If you are currently packing for your summer vacation, you may be wondering what essentials you must pack. On the other hand, you may also be thinking about which things you don’t need for your beach holiday on Mykonos. If you want to pack wisely and efficiently for your vacation – here are some useful tips that can help you with that.

The List of Things You Don’t Need for Your Beach Vacation Is Quite Long

When you think about it, this list could be quite long and cover anything from puffer jackets to boots. However, some things are more obvious than others. Of course, you’re not going to pack your winter scarf, but how about an extra pair of jeans? Or your entire makeup collection? Another pair of footwear?

There are always a few things you’re hesitant about, and the scenario is almost always the same. If you leave them behind – you’ll definitely want to use them on your vacation, and if you bring them, they will probably stay in your suitcase for days.

Make Sure Your Packing List and Travel Itinerary Match

When packing for a trip to Mykonos, one of the most important things is to carry only those items you know you will use. This may seem like an obvious thing, but in reality, many people forget that they can plan their vacation outfits according to their travel itinerary.

Basically, a packing list should reflect the travel itinerary and the summer activities you are planning to indulge in. For example, if you’re planning on spending every day on the best beaches – make sure you have lots of bikinis, stylish beachwear, and a nice beach bag on your travel packing list.

No Need for Packing Jeans and Thicker Clothes for Your Beach Vacation

If you’re one of those people who are always packing clothing for all kinds of situations and weather conditions, this advice is for you. It’s needless to worry about packing warmer and thicker clothes when traveling to Mykonos.

You may think you have to pack some warm clothes just in case it gets a bit colder or rainy, but that is a highly unlikely scenario for a summer on the Cyclades. The island is windy, though, so, in the evening hours, it might be a bit chilly for summer nights, but that’s nothing a denim jacket or a sweatshirt won’t solve.

You Can Pack Some Simple Cover-Ups for the Beach

Even if you think you will be spending every second of your vacation in a bikini, that might not be the case. When you wish to leave the beach and go to a nearby seafood restaurant, it would be nice to have some simple cover-ups to dress yourself up a little bit. These can be some nice linen shirts, comfortable dresses, tunics, or anything else that will feel light and convenient on you during the day.

These cover-ups can also protect you from the sun when you are not under a parasol or enjoying various water activities. Also, remember to pack only a couple of these versatile cover-ups, which can be worn on different occasions.

Don’t Put Too Much Makeup Products on Your Checklist for Packing

Although you may think you are going to spend hours getting ready and doing your makeup to attend the hottest parties in the exclusive beach clubs and bars on the island, we honestly recommend you forget about that. Makeup and sun or water don’t go very well together, and you should really try to avoid looking cakey in your holiday photos.

Plus, after you get a bit of tan on your skin, a simple makeup look will be more than enough to make you feel your best during the day, as well as for attending evening events. So bring only a few makeup essentials that you like and use daily, that should be more than enough for this trip.

You Don’t Want Any Full-Size Products in Your Bag

Products that you use on a daily basis, like toothpaste or shampoo, are something you can easily buy in local shops in Mykonos town, so there’s no need to bring them from home. However, if you really want to bring some of your beauty products with you, consider decanting them into travel-size bottles.

It’s even better to buy travel-size packaging if the products you already use and love. This way, you will save space in your bag, you will be able to bring more things, and they will be easier to manage during your vacation. Just figure out the approximate amount of products you’ll need for the trip, and you’ll be good to go.

You Can Pack Travel Size Products in Your Carry-On

The best thing about travel-size products is that they can easily fit into a carry-on bag, and they will pass security control at the JMK airport or any other without any problems. This is very important because in case your suitcases are a few hours or days late, you will still have your essentials with you.

Don’t Pack Any Items You Might Already Have in Your Accommodation

Whether you’re booking a suite in a luxurious hotel or you’re perhaps staying in some of the Mykonos villas for rental, you should inform yourself about what kind of amenities will be available to you. For example, some typical items that you would require on your holiday include

  • Fresh towels,
  • Bed sheets and pillowcases,
  • Basic toiletries,
  • Standard kitchen utensils,
  • Bottle opener,
  • Hair dryer.

In case you’re provided with these things in your accommodation, it’s not necessary to carry them. For example, most private villas in Mykonos are fully equipped with all the essential amenities, and they also provide additional services upon request. And this is just one of many reasons why you should carefully choose where to stay on your holiday.
