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 and added way too many things to my Caribbean packing list!
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 to pack for a Caribbean Vacation and the ideal Caribbean packing list for 1 week, or even 2 weeks! This list can be applied for packing for Antigua or packing for any other Caribbean Island!
Caribbean Packing List
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 in case you fancy working off some of the buffet food!
1 x T-Shirt in case 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 swimsuits are back in Fashion! I adore my secret slimming striped swimsuit which is from M&S.
2 x Bikini’s-
7 x Underwear.
2 x Bras.
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!
You might not think of taking trainers or walking shoes on a Caribbean holiday but there are many adventurous things to do in the Caribbean, like all of the tours in Punta Cana and some you need sturdy shoes for so don’t forget about this!
Pack your usual toiletries and tech but make sure you don’t forget:
Bottle of Suncream
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!
