11. Invest in glamorous swimwear.

 The Amalfi Coast is known for its unique pebbly beaches and we can’t think of a better way to spend a relaxing day oceanside than in a stunning swimsuit cocktail in hand. A quality swimsuit that fits you well and flatters your body shape is simply a must for beach days. You can go for bikinis in bold colors or printed swimsuits. A sarong, kaftan, or lightweight cover-up is ideal to keep you comfortable before and after swimming and free to move around the beach in style. To save space in your suitcase, opt for a reversible swimsuit.
