Planning for your vacation can be one of the most exciting things because you get to look forward to a period of unstructured living and a break from your daily responsibilities. Aloha Vacation Villas can increase your relaxation by providing the luxury vacation rentals you need to spread out and have plenty of private space. Continue reading to learn what items you should pack for your tropical vacation, and contact us today to reserve your vacation rental in Kapalua Bay.

Multiple Swimsuits

You may have one swimsuit that is your absolute favorite, which is great, but it might not be able to handle the demands of being used on a daily basis. There is nothing quite as uncomfortable as trying to put on a wet or even a damp swimsuit. If you are from a temperate or dry climate, you might think that you can simply hang up your bathing suit or swim trunks to dry overnight. With the high humidity of our tropical climate, that just isn’t going to happen.

Many of the luxury vacation rentals that we offer have washer and dryer units, but you want to be careful about sending your swimwear through the dryer too frequently as it can increase the rate of wear and tear on the material. We recommend that you pack at least two swimsuits so that you can alternate them through the duration of your visit to Kapalua Bay.

Sunscreen

Whether or not you have been working on establishing a base tan before your Hawaiian vacation, you want to make sure that you purchase a quality sunscreen. The sun’s rays are closer, and therefore, more intense in the tropics. Don’t make the mistake of underestimating the amount of time that you can spend in the sun without risking sunburn by comparing your skin’s response to the sun in a non-tropical climate. Another thing to remember is that your sunscreen bottle should be no bigger than three ounces if you plan on packing it in a carry-on.

Light Jacket

You might be wondering why we would suggest a jacket since you’re traveling to one of the warmest regions on earth. The truth is that the temperatures can get quite cool in the evenings here on Maui. Additionally, if you’re planning an early morning hike in the mountains to watch the sunrise, or an exploration of a volcano on a guided trip, you will be glad that you followed our advice! Ideally, your light jacket can double as a rain poncho, otherwise, you should plan on packing a raincoat in addition to your light jacket. Hawaii can get quite a bit of rain during the winter.

Comfortable Footwear

Flip flops are arguably one of the most comfortable forms of footwear available, depending on the brand. If flip flops are your happy place, then make sure to pack a few so that you have different color and style options to choose from. If flip flops are not the ideal footwear for you, then be sure to choose shoes that are lightweight and comfortable.

When you think about which shoes to pack, consider this — if you can walk around all day without wishing you could take your shoes off, then those are the pairs to pack!

At Aloha Vacation Villas, we want your next trip to Kapalua Bay to be one of the best you’ve ever had! Call today to reserve the perfect luxury vacation rental for your needs and make sure to follow our packing tips.
