As a general rule, pack light and take only duffel bag which can stored away easily.
First let’s make sure you have the basics:
- Camera or smartphone
- Sunglasses (almost mandatory)
- Lip balm with high SPF, sunscreen with broad-spectrum protection and a high SPF
- Soft shoes (non-marking deck shoes, flip-flop)
- Hat to protect you against the Mediterranean sun
- Extra : towels and solar cream (if not provided)
And of course:
- Passport or personal ID: it’s a good idea to double-check your passports and IDs aren’t expired…
- Bring some some cash if you’re planning to enjoy a lunch at one of St-Tropez beachclubs or disembark in Cannes or Monaco. Some French Riviera restaurants do not accept AMEX…
- Consider packing some light trousers, collared shirts and summer dresses if you intend to eat ashore as most restaurants (Cannes and Monaco, not St-Tropez beachclubs) will expect customers to comply with a “smart casual” dress code.
- Leave your valuables at home, particularly such things which are not waterproof. SOme yacht come with safe
- Prescriptions or seasickness medication (if applicable).
Weapons, illegal drugs, and other items that could interfere with the safe operation of the boat or the safe and secure environment of our guests and crew are strictly prohibited.
For week charter, you may also want to email yourself a copy of your passport, driver’s license, medical cards and ID, so if anything happens to them you’ll be able to access them online.
