    Did you know that in some places you're not allowed to use regular sunscreen? It's true . . . so be sure to check with your resort or just purchase some biodegradable sunscreen here just in case. If you're looking for something a little different, be sure to check out some organic sunscreen.

    3. Let the internet pack for you.

    You can use this site to enter where you're going, for how long, etc. It will give you a list of things you might need and you can simply check them and print them off.

    4. Roll don't fold to decrease size and wrinkles.

    5. Use emptied chap stick containers to hide valuables at the beach.

    6. Use binders to help keep your earphones untangled.
