Book Your Stay

Have you ever been on a Coastal holiday? Aberystwyth is perfect! A coastal holiday can be a great way to relax and enjoy some time away from the stresses of everyday life. However, packing the right essentials is important to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable trip. Here are five necessities that you should bring to a coastal holiday:

Sun Protection

You may be thinking, ‘We’re in the UK, what type of sun are we getting?’ But if we learnt anything from last Summer, we know the weather can surprise us! When spending time at the beach or on your walks, it's crucial to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. This is due to the rays and high up, meaning closer to the sun. We suggest bringing plenty of sunscreens, sunglasses, and a hat to protect your skin from the sun's rays. Additionally, bring after-sun lotion in case of any sunburn.

Swimwear and Beach Towels

A coastal holiday is only complete with a dip in the ocean. We are lucky to have a clean coast meaning our visitors can go for a dip safely. Be sure to bring plenty of swimwear and beach towels to relax on the sand and dip in the water whenever you please. But if you aren’t a swimmer, catching those rays by sunbathing on the beach is a must whilst the kids are in the sea!

Comfortable Footwear

Walking on sand can be tiring, so bring comfortable footwear, such as flip-flops or sandals, that you can easily slip on and off. Additionally, if you plan on doing any activities such as cycling, walking or even just sightseeing, it's best to bring comfortable shoes that are best suitable for the conditions you are in. Comfort is key, especially when spending a long time outside.

Picnic Essentials

A coastal holiday is a perfect opportunity for a beach picnic. Bring a cooler bag, a reusable water bottle, and some easy-to-eat snacks such as fruits, sandwiches, and crisps. We also have many shops that provide all the snack essentials. Also, bring your coins for your ice cream from the ice cream van! We also suggest getting a water bottle to stay hydrated throughout your trip. If you ever need a refill, shops and local restaurants are always on hand to help.
