Heading to the Bahamas in pursuit of a fantastic getaway experience is a wonderful chance to relax, restore the senses and revitalize the mind and body. For those heading to Harbour Island, moments spent soaking up the sun from stunning pink sand beaches is just the beginning of the fun! Whether you’re one for snorkeling, swimming, sunbathing or simply restaurant hopping your way across the island, this destination is packed with the potential for excitement and flavor. One way to make your stay even more enjoyable is to leave the stress of overpacking far behind. Instead of trying to bring it all with you, consider these three tips for a light Harbour Island travel.

Compression Cubes

Even the most well-intentioned traveler can find themselves trying to jam two sides of a suitcase together just before it’s time to head out the door for a Harbour Island adventure. Packing can be particularly tricky when you have plans that take you between drastically different activities ranging from hiking and biking to swimming, snorkeling and beyond. To keep yourself on packing track and your suitcase to size, consider using compression cubes for clothing instead. The size of the cubes puts a limit on what goes in the suitcase and the option to compress on the return trip is going to open up some additional space for souvenirs.

Focus on a Rental with a Washer

Island trips are always inspiring, but they tend to come with their fair share of sand. There’s no reason to pack more than you’ll really need to replace soiled beach and daytime clothing when you can book a vacation rental with a washer instead. While a washer and dryer combination is the ultimate luxury, a washer is what you’ll need at a minimum to make refreshing what you’ve packed simple and maintaining that light suitcase on the way home even easier.

Travel Containers for Toiletries

Sometimes it’s those items that seem small that can add weight, hassle, and stress to your Harbour Island getaway. Instead of packing all of your large shampoos, conditioner and body wash bottles in a suitcase, then trying to find a place for them once you arrive, invest in a collection of flexible silicone travel containers, specifically made for toiletries. These small and durable containers are just the right size for a suitcase and easily fit on a bathroom countertop upon arrival. Fill them before you leave with your favorite products or leave them empty and purchase something basic to fill them with once you arrive.
