I recently went to the Caribbean island of Antigua and Barbuda for one week. It was such a good trip but of course I packed way too much. I mainly packed too much because I knew I wouldn’t have to carry my bag that far as I was saying at a lovely resort but it taught me that it’s better to pack less anyway as it’s so much easier!

In light of my experience, here is what I suggest you pack for a one week holiday in the Caribbean!

This list can be applied for packing for Antigua or packing for any other Caribbean Island!

1 x Long Dress for those cooler nights.

3 x Dresses for evenings out.

2 x Beach Dresses to throw on during the day.

1 x Denim Shorts for day and night.

1 x  Set of work out wear incase you fancy working off some of the buffet food!

1 x T-Shirt incase it gets cooler at night / you need to cover up sunburn!

3 x Top’s for day and night.

1 x Swimsuit- I love that swim suits are back in Fashion! I adore my secret slimming striped swim suit which is from M&S.

2 x Bikini’s- I’ve been obsessed with Accessorize bikini’s this year!

7 x Underwear.

2 x Bra’s.

1 x Flip Flops for around the resort.

1 x Sandals for the evening, I would suggest flat sandals.

1 x Trainers or Walking Shoes, I went hiking and zip lining in some new summer walking shoes from Keen which were really comfortable in the heat of the Caribbean and better than trainers!

Pack your usual toiletries and tech but make sure you don’t forget:

Bottle of Suncream

Bug Repellent

Go Pro! You need to capture all of those fun Caribbean activities after all!

Suitcase: I packed all of this into my Revelation London suitcase. I’m a big fan of the Revelation London cases because they are so hard-wearing. I’d really recommend this case here!
