Get ready to enjoy an exciting trip to the beach! Packing the right suitcase can make the difference between a relaxing vacation and unnecessary stress. Here are ten practical tips so you can pack smart and make the most of your sunny days on the coast. Aim!

1. Make a list of essentials:
Before you start packing, make a list of all the items you need to bring. This will help you organize your thoughts and make sure you don't forget any important items.

2. Choose the right suitcase:
Opt for a suitcase that is resistant, light and easy to maneuver. If you plan to bring a lot of things, consider a suitcase with wheels to make transportation easier.

3. Clothes for the heat:
Select appropriate clothing for the weather. Wear t-shirts, fresh blouses, bathing suits, light dresses, Bermuda shorts and shorts in light colors. Don't forget a hat and sunglasses to protect you from the sun.

4. Pack extra swimsuits:
Carrying more than one swimsuit will allow you to always have a dry one to wear while the other dries in the sun.

5. Protect your skin:
Don't forget to include a broad-spectrum sunscreen with high SPF, as well as after-sun or moisturizing lotions to soothe skin after a day in the sun.

6. Items for the beach and pool:
Pack a towel, a waterproof bag for your belongings and toys if you are traveling with children. The umbrella will not fit in the suitcase, but it cannot be missing on your trip.

7. Proper footwear:
Wear comfortable, lightweight sandals that are easy to put on and take off. It is also useful to pack a pair of closed-toe shoes for walking on rougher surfaces or for nights out. And water shoes for the stone beaches!

8. Organize your belongings:
Use cloth bags or organizer bags to separate your items, such as clothing, personal care products, and electronics. This will keep your suitcase tidy and make it easy to access what you need.

9. Less is more:
Remember that, both at the beach and at the pool, you will most likely wear comfortable and simple clothing. Avoid overpacking and take only the essentials to avoid carrying unnecessary weight.

10. Prepare a tote bag:
For the plane or road trip, take a small carry-on bag with your important documents, cash, reusable water bottle, snacks and some entertainment, such as a book or magazine.

Hotel or Apartment: what type of accommodation to choose?

Just as William Shakespeare asked himself: to be or not to be?, when planning our vacations we ask ourselves: Hotel or Apartment? That is the question.

Hotel-type accommodation in Barcelona, duplex room at Casa Lit By Ona

The world of hospitality is full of endless options! That is why today we will tell you the advantages and disadvantages of these types of accommodation , so that you can have a clearer idea when you start planning your trip. Shall we start?

Accommodation space:

In a hotel, you will only find your room and bathroom. Some rooms have a desk, a sofa and a television away from the bed, but always in the same space.

In the apartments you have different environments: dining room, living room, fully equipped kitchen, bathrooms and bedroom. More space = More comfort.

Length of stay:

The hotel is a great option for a weekend getaway or a short trip. Above all, for those who plan to use the room only to sleep and wash, but are out all day visiting.

An apartment , on the other hand, is the ideal choice for long stays, for families and couples who, as we mentioned before, choose to cook and live in an apartment, to feel at home. Quiet dinner, favorite movie or series and rest for tomorrow to continue visiting? plan!

Apartment with balcony near the sea, Ona Palamós (Costa Brava, Girona)


In the hotels we are governed depending on the hours of reception, breakfast, dinner and cleaning of the room.

When choosing an apartment, you can totally go your own way. A brunch at 12? Great option. And on top of that, if you choose an aparthotel, you have the best of each: the possibility of being in an apartment, but having breakfast at the hotel buffet. Or make breakfast in the apartment, but stop by the restaurant and take a take away to eat there. The perfect flexible combo for the holidays!

Kitchen or hospitality:

A hotel room denies us the possibility of cooking, forcing us to eat out every day or opt for a half-board plan to eat inside the hotel.

The apartment allows us to make all our meals inside it, thanks to the fact that the kitchens are fully equipped. This type of accommodation is ideal for those who prefer to save a little in restaurants, take food for excursions or enjoy the views of the apartment on the seafront while dining . And as we said before, if you are in an aparthotel and one day you don't feel like cooking, you can enjoy dinner right there. Goal!

These two types of hotels have their advantages and disadvantages, and the choice is purely personal, depending on what you are looking for on vacation. Here you can find different options offered by Ona Hotels whether you are looking for a hotel or an apartment.

Statistically, apartments are the options most chosen by Spanish families as well as internationally, who travel for a long time during their summer vacations, especially in coastal areas. Although at Ona Hotels they also ensure that families enjoy the hotel accommodation experience to the fullest.

And you? Are you already clear about what types of accommodation to choose during your vacation preparations? Hotel or apartment?

This natural giant is an exciting challenge for any adventure lover and offers spectacular views that will take your breath away. But before embarking on this adventure, it is important to know how to climb Mount Teide. In this article we will give you all the information you need to do so. Let's go there!

Climb Teide walking

The Teide National Park has a wide network of hiking routes, with 41 41 itineraries of different difficulties. One of the most popular and accessible is the Route from Montaña Blanca, which allows you to see the gigantic balls of accretion, known as Teide eggs. The unevenness exceeds 60% in some sections, so it is indicated only for people with good physical conditions. The trail ends at La Rambleta, from where you can reach the Mirador de La Fortaleza and the Mirador de Pico Viejo, two of the most impressive viewpoints of Teide.

Climb Teide by car

If you value freedom and flexibility, you can choose to go up Mount Teide by car. Tenerife has well-maintained roads that will take you to the Teide National Park, although you will only be able to access up to the foot of the volcano. You must leave your car in the car park before starting the ascent on foot or taking the cable car.

One of the recommended routes if you stay in the south of Tenerife, in Los Gigantes or Adeje, is the Ruta de Chío along the TF-38 road.

Each option to climb Mount Teide has its own charm. It is up to your personal preferences to decide which one is best for you!

Tips for climbing Mount Teide

Climbing Mount Teide is a unique experience that you cannot miss on your visit to Tenerife. But before you venture out, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, make sure you are wearing appropriate clothing and footwear. Although the climate can be warm at the base, temperatures at the summit can be quite cold, even in summer. It is also important to bring enough water and food to stay hydrated and energized during the climb.

For the less experienced or those who prefer a more relaxed pace, we recommend signing up for an excursion to Teide. These excursions are led by professionals who know the mountain well and can provide you with valuable information about the local flora and fauna, as well as climbing safety tips.

Also remember that you need a permit to access the Teide crater on certain routes or to spend the night on the mountain. This permit is free, but there are a limited number each day, so it is better to request it in advance. You can process the permits at this link .

Travel to Tenerife: how to pack?

Tenerife , one of the Canary Islands recognized for its beautiful microclimate, where no matter the time of year, it is always spring.

A suitcase to travel to Tenerife

When traveling, it is always difficult to know what to put in your suitcase, no matter the destination or the number of days the trip lasts. Therefore, we share a list for your beach suitcase with some tips so you know how to pack a suitcase to travel to Tenerife.
Save space with these tips!

Ready for your beach suitcase

• The swimsuit is the essential garment that you cannot forget to keep among your belongings when traveling to Tenerife. We recommend that you have at least three different ones, especially if you are packing a suitcase for 7 days at the beach.

Footwear: One of the key points on how to pack a suitcase correctly is to wear the right footwear . In this case, to travel to Tenerife you will need flip flops to walk without problems on the sand and in the pool areas, comfortable slippers for days of long walking, nice shoes for nights out to eat and the crab sandals that will be your allies for stone beaches and natural pools.

• In summer, it is always advisable to wear light-colored clothing and light fabrics , so loose, cotton, light-colored T-shirts and airy dresses will be your allies. Of course, shorts, shorts, skirts and wide-leg pants should not be missing.

• Carry a toiletry bag with your perfume, toothbrush, makeup and creams in small containers. Forget soap, shampoo and conditioner, in the apartment bathrooms of our resorts you will find these amenities as a gift, as well as a hair dryer.

What to pack to travel to Tenerife

• Keep your beach towel, but don't worry about the pool towel. In our apartments you can buy one for a week for €5. For Vacation Club members they are free! This way you will have more space for other things that you want to put in your suitcase.

• If you are one of those who cannot spend a day without going for a run or visiting the apart'hotel gym, we recommend that you bring your changes of clothes and sports shoes .

• Don't forget the microclimates of Tenerife! This is an island with sea and mountains, so if at any time you want to go on an excursion, such as visiting Teide, a jacket will be your ally if the temperature drops in that mountainous area.

Sun protection is essential , so you should always carry your factor 50 sunscreen for your face and body. Don't worry if you forget! In our establishments we have supermarkets where you can buy them, among many other things. Also bring sunglasses and a hat or cap to protect yourself from the sun.

• Now, we need to save the objects that must be put in the suitcase because they help nourish our trip: headphones to listen to music during the trip, a book to read on the beach or in those moments of peace, a card game for after dinner, a good camera to capture the beautiful landscapes , and goggles to snorkel and not miss a single detail of the marine world!

What to pack for 7 days on the beach in Tenerife

You now have the list for your beach suitcase to travel to Tenerife! Plan your outfits, prepare your luggage and start your trip. We will be waiting for you at Excel Hotels & Resorts. Have a good trip!
