What to pack for a beach holiday!

by Samantha Du Toit

Don’t know what to wear on your vacation to our exclusive and secluded beach getaway? Here are tips on what to wear and a few of our suggested summer essentials, perfect for your stay with us. 

It’s always difficult to pack your suitcase when going on a trip, especially when the chosen destination is coastal as the weather can be unpredictable. It is an obvious choice to pack your swimming costume - but it’s always a good idea to check out the weather on our website (https://www.pambele.co.mz/experience/weather-and-climate) or phone Pambele Beach House and ask what the predicted weather is for the period you are there and pack accordingly.

For our beach beauties, you could never go wrong with an oversized woven hat and big sunglasses, these are must haves for lounging by the pool or just exploring our surroundings. The evenings get a little chilly, and a light jacket is always a good idea to take, especially on the boat rides or one of our guided game drives. Breathable fabrics such as cottons, chambray and linens in light colours are perfect for any coastal climate as they help you stay cool and comfortable throughout the day whilst still achieving a beachy look.


For a more versatile closet pack a few Neutral basics such as a cream or white shirts, white denim shorts and a linen sundress, this will make it easy to mix-and-match clothing items to create new looks every day and will also allow you to pack less. As for shoes, neutral-coloured slides or sandals are ideal for walking around the lodge, and a pair of white sneakers are great for any summer vacation and can be paired with anything from a sundress to shorts and a plain t-shirt.

As for our male visitors, we haven’t forgotten about you… a costume or pair of swim-trunks is of course first on our list, perfect for a day out on the ocean fishing or any of our other exiting water-based activities. Sunglasses, cap and a jacket are also needed.

To prevent over-packing, pack the basics, plain polo or V-neck shirts and shorts in neutral or light colours (browns, white, creams and light blue etc.) avoid black or any other dark colours as they absorb heat. Boat shoes or sneakers and slops are perfect summer staples for any man’s wardrobe. Choose garments that are made of breathable fabrics. Denim shorts are always a great basic to pack. 

Comfort is the most important concept to take into consideration when pulling clothes for any vacation especially one with us. 

Happy packing and see you soon we hope!
