What to pack

Make your walk as comfortable as possible - and record great memories - with these essentials

  • Water bottle 
  • Hat or cap (wide-brimmed hats are better - they protect your neck and ears as well as your eyes)
  • A small backpack or day pack
  • Sun block & lip balm
  • Beach towel
  • Swimming costume
  • Wind breaker or raincoat
  • Camera (nah - not your cell phone. Leave that in your bag at your accommodation.)
  • Binoculars and your favourite bird book (and a pen or pencil, too)
  • Sunglasses
  • Personal medication
  • A torch (useful when walking from the Sandpiper Sports Centre to your cottage at night).
  • Marine shellfish license (necessary if you plan to take out a few white or black mussels)
  • Hiking sandals
  • Hiking boots with thick socks
  • Shorts and jeans
  • T-shirts
