What to Pack for an Overnight Beach Camping Trip

I recently went on an overnight beach camping trip over the weekend. Since summer is nearing, I decided to come up with a checklist of what I usually bring every time my friends and I would go to the beach for an overnight camping.

It is very important to bring all travel essentials for a beach camping trip since most of the time you will be on an island with limited food, water, and power supplies and access to the main island would require a boat ride. Last year, my friends and I went to six (6) beaches over the span of the entire summer and the list below easily helped me to pack all the necessary things we needed for our trip.

    • Waterproof tent (with poles & rain guard)
    • Sleeping bag
    • Portable light/head lamp/solar-powered lantern
    • Optional:
      • Tarp
      • Hammock
      • Air mattress (if with power supply)
      • Inflatable sofa
    • Portable butane gas stove
    • Butane gas canisters
    • Water jug with drinking water
    • Ice cooler with ice (for cold storage)
    • Cooking wares (kettle, pan, pot, pot holder)
    • Cooking tools (knife, cutting board, pair of scissors, can/bottle opener, lighter)
    • Dinner wares (plate, glass, spoon & fork, serving dish & ladle)
    • Cleaning stuff (dishwashing liquid soap, sponge, garbage bag, dish cloth, paper towel)
    • Optional: Aero press (for brewed coffee) & grill (with coal)
    • My go to drinks: box of red wine, brewed coffee, water
