Several bathing suits, shorts, long pants, several t-shirts, blouse/shirt and wind breaker all packed in soft luggage. Also deck shoes, sandals, suntan lotion (non-oil) and sunglasses. In winter, sweatshirts or sweaters are advisable. Personal items such as aspirin, decongestants and shampoo.

Flip flops are not suitable. We suggest water shoes or TEVA type sandals. Sneakers are fine but they might get wet!
