Sun, Sand & Smiles: The Ultimate Packing List for Busselton Resorts

Ah, Busselton! With its stunning shores and sunshine-soaked days, it’s the perfect destination for a memorable family vacation. But let’s face it, packing for a beach trip with kids can feel like an overwhelming task. Fear not, fellow parents! This comprehensive packing list will ensure you have everything you need for a stress-free and fun-filled getaway at Busselton’s Amalfi Resort.

Beach Essentials Packing List

Busselton’s stunning coastline awaits, and we have plenty of sun, sand, and surf at our five best beaches! To ensure your little ones have a blast building sandcastles and splashing in the waves, you’ll want to pack all the essentials for a fun-filled beach day. Here’s a checklist to make sure everyone stays protected, cool, and entertained under the Busselton sunshine:

  • Sunscreen: Pack plenty of broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher for everyone in the family. Reapply frequently, especially after swimming or sweating.
  • Sunhats: Wide-brimmed hats for children and adults are essential to keep cool and protected from the sun’s rays.
  • Sunglasses:  Sunglasses for all ages will shield your eyes from glare and make those beach views even more stunning.
  • Swimwear: Pack multiple swimsuits for each child (accidents happen!). Don’t forget a cover-up for lounging by the pool or beach.
  • Beach towels: Quick-drying beach towels are a must. Consider packing a lightweight beach blanket for picnics or building sandcastles.
  • Water shoes:  Protect little feet from hot sand or sharp objects with water shoes.
  • Beach toys: Pack a bucket and shovel for endless sandcastle creations. Consider pool noodles, frisbees, or inflatables for water fun.

Beyond the Beach Packing List

Beach days are just the beginning of your Busselton adventure! Amalfi Resort offers a variety of activities and opportunities to explore the surrounding area. To ensure everyone is comfortable and prepared for all the fun, here’s a list of essentials to pack that go beyond the beach:

  • Comfortable clothing: Pack plenty of casual, breathable cotton or linen clothing for everyone. Consider layering options for cooler evenings.
  • Pajamas: Lounge sets, pajamas or flowing robes for lounging in the room after a fun day of activities.
  • Underwear and socks: Pack enough for the duration of your stay.
  • Shoes: Pack comfortable walking shoes for exploring the resort and surrounding area. Flip-flops or sandals are great for poolside or beach wear.
  • Toiletries: Don’t forget the essentials like toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, and soap. Pack travel-sized versions for convenience.
  • First-aid kit:  A basic first-aid kit with bandaids, antiseptic wipes, and pain relievers is a must-have.

Don’t Forget To Pack These Extras 

There are a few extra items that can make your Busselton Resorts getaway even smoother sailing for the whole family. Here are some things you might not think of at first but will definitely come in handy:

  • Hats:  A baseball cap or sunhat for extra sun protection is a good idea.
  • Entertainment: Pack books, card games, or portable electronics with downloaded movies or games to keep kids entertained during downtime.
  • Snacks: Pack healthy snacks like fruits, nuts, or granola bars for in-between meal hunger pangs.
  • Reusable water bottle: Staying hydrated is crucial, especially in the warm weather. Pack a reusable water bottle for everyone to avoid single-use plastic.
  • Camera: Capture all those precious family memories with a camera or your smartphone.
  • Laundry bag: A designated laundry bag for dirty clothes will help keep things organised.
