What to Pack on Your Next Mediterranean Getaway

Lindsay Paige Stein

If you’re wondering what to pack for your next Mediterranean vacation look no further. Many destinations throughout Europe require a balance of resort attire, beach wear and comfortable casual clothing for exploring. Each Mediterranean region has its own vibe and what you pack should reflect that. Whether you’re cruising over the Greek Isles or drinking sangria in Spain, here is the ultimate packing tips for your next Mediterranean getaway. Which destination is calling your name?

While Barcelona is always a popular choice for city lovers, head to Spain’s smaller beach towns like Marbella, Ibiza, or Mallorca. Pack The Marina one piece and you’ll fit right in with the colorful towns in the Spanish Mediterranean. These hot spots are known for being filled with mega-yachts and parties, but there’s so much more to do like yoga and scuba diving. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll most likely be active so packing The All Buttoned Up Cover-Up is ideal to toss over your swimsuit throughout the day.

The French Riviera shouldn’t be overlooked when planning your next European adventure. The most well-known parts are Nice, Cannes, and St. Tropez. Whether you’re in a cliffside town or fishing villages, it’s easy to wander the streets for hours. Be sure to pack The Cove for a classy swimsuit look. Throw over The All Buttoned Up Cover-Up to complete your outfit while you grab lunch in town.

From the Italian Riviera to the islands of Sicily, there are plenty of seaside villages to choose from. Heading to the Amalfi Coast? The Sidestroke in the Sea Urchin is a must-have for this trip. Pair the one piece with your favorite espadrilles sandals and straw beach hat for the perfect Italian chic beach look.

The sapphire blue waters and medieval-walled towns of Croatia make it a dreamy destination all around. From Split, Dubrovnik to Zadar, the many seaside towns are considered some of the most beautiful in Europe. You’ll be super comfortable in The Voyager and The Easy Breezy Sarong, especially if you’re adventurous and plan to walk along the rocky beaches.

If Greek island hopping is high up on your travel bucket list then make sure you do it right. Hit Mykonos, Ios, and Santorini in style. You’ll blend right in with the blue and white architecture in The Sidestroke one piece. Throw on your trendiest sunglasses and The All Buttoned Up Cover-Up as you drink local wine and sunbathe all day long. 

Add these Mediterranean spots to your bucket list, pack your best swimsuit and enjoy the trip of a lifetime.
