10 Essential Items to Pack for a Bahamas Vacation

Heading to the breathtaking Exuma islands in the Bahamas for a luxury vacation experience at Ba Roos promises sun, sand, and a world of relaxation. But how do you choose what to pack and what to leave home?

Packing for your luxury vacation rental in the Bahamas shouldn't be stressful. Embrace the island life by keeping it light and comfortable - while also prioritizing sun protection and documentation. Read on for our top essentials that need to be in your suitcase:

1. Beachwear & Accessories

Swimsuits, cover-ups, beach towels, and flip-flops are must-haves to enjoy the crystal-clear waters and soft white sand.

2. Sun Protection

With endless sunshine comes UV rays. And we’re sure you don’t want a sunburn as a souvenir of your Bahamas vacation! Pack sunscreen (reef-safe, of course!), sunglasses, wide-brimmed hats, to protect yourself from the sun while enjoying outdoor activities.

3. Snorkeling Gear

Snorkeling is one of the most popular activities in Exuma. Bring your snorkel, mask, and fins to see stunning marine life and coral reefs up close. If you don’t have your own snorkeling gear, you can always rent!

4. Casual Clothes 

The Bahamas vibe is laid-back and relaxed, so pack lightweight, breathable clothing, such as t-shirts, shorts, and comfortable footwear. For a night out, polo t-shirts and sundresses.

5. Medications and First-Aid Kit 

For any vacation, it’s smart to pack essential medications and a basic first-aid kit. While pharmacies are available, having your preferred remedies on hand can save you the hassle.

6. Bug Spray 

Even in paradise, insects can sometimes be a nuisance. Pack bug spray or other insect repellent to keep those pesky bugs away, especially during evenings outdoors.

7. Umbrella 

Whether for unexpected rain or additional shade, an umbrella is a smart choice to pack. Opt for a compact travel umbrella so it doesn’t take up too much space in your suitcase.

8.  Reusable Water Bottle

Bring a reusable water bottle such as a Hydroflask or even a Stanley to stay hydrated in the Bahamian heat. It’s also an eco-friendly choice! 

9. Required Documents 

Don’t forget to bring any required documents such as:

  • Passport

  • Fishing license (if you plan to fish)

  • Driver’s License (if you plan to rent a car)

  • Health/Travel insurance information

  • Dive Certification card (if applicable)

10. Daypack or Backpack

Whether you’re relaxing on the beach or swimming with the pigs, a daypack or backpack helps carry your belongings safely. Many daypacks or backpacks are waterproof, lightweight, and flexible to provide maximum protection for the products inside them.
