What do you take with you onto the beach?

You will probably need to protect yourself against the sun's rays, so high-factor suncream or sunblock will be useful. Sunglasses and a sun hat are also recommended.
Some people sit under parasols, which are like large umbrellas. On English beaches, where the weather is more unpredictable, a wind-break (piece of fabric stretched between wooden poles) will keep the wind away!
What do you wear to sunbathe, or to get a tan? A bikini (or two-piece) for women, or a swimming costume. Men will probably wear swimming trunks. Sandals or flip-flops are useful for walking on the sand. If your skin is delicate, you might need to cover up with a sarong – a long piece of cotton you wrap around your waist to cover your legs – a T shirt or a pair of shorts. (Short trousers.)

You can sit on a deckchair, or recline on a sun-lounger. Some people even lie on an inflatable mattress in the sea – a lilo. Or you can lie out on a towel under the sun to catch as many rays as possible.
Finally, entertainment. Children like buckets and spades so they can build sandcastles. Personally, I prefer to read a good book on the beach. But some people take along beach balls, or frisbees (plastic discs) to throw to each other. The more sporty play volley ball or badminton. My father used to take along the radio to listen to the cricket scores – very English! Nowadays, people take along their walkman or ghetto blaster to listen to music. Perhaps the most common sound nowadays, though, is mobile phones. Aaaagh!

Many people take their main holiday in summer, and although some people choose a last-minute break, others plan their holiday months in advance.
The beginning of the year is a good time for people to start looking at holiday brochures. Tour operators (companies that organise holidays) as well as travel agents (the people that sell holidays) give lots of information about holiday destinations and types of holiday. Apart from the traditional two-week beach holiday, you can choose from a range of holidays: a cruise (holiday on a ship), an activity holiday (a holiday that involves walking, cycling, climbing or other sports), a city break (a weekend or a few days in a different city) and so on. A lot of people choose a package holiday, where flights and accommodation are included in the price. But many people prefer an independent holiday, where they make their own travel arrangements.

If you travel independently, you will need to book your flights or train tickets. Unless you have an onward destination, you will probably book a return journey. Then you will need to make a reservation at a hotel, or another place to stay, such as a campsite (if you are camping in a tent), or a caravan site (if you are staying in a caravan), or a B&B (a bed and breakfast).
For all types of foreign holidays, it is essential that you check you have all your travel documents. Make sure your passport hasn't expired, and that you have a visa if necessary. If you are travelling to some countries, you also need to make sure that all your vaccinations (protection against illness) are up to date. For some countries you might need a vaccination against hepatitis, or yellow fever, for example.
