A “beater” backpack

A great idea for what to bring to Hawaii is a junk or “beater” backpack. Something you can take to the beach and get sandy, get wet, or get dirty without having to worry about it.

“Beater” sunglasses

The same thing goes for sunglasses. Either bring a pair of “beater” shades or pick some up here. Starting around $6.99 you can find them in men’s and women’s styles and you won’t be disappointed when you don’t scratch up your favorite pair of designer shades.

Bring a travel mug and not only will you be saving a few bucks every morning, but you can take it with you for whatever you have planned for the day.
