A summer vacation in Bali at an all-inclusive resort always makes life easier as it allows them to take a much-needed break from cooking and cleaning for a week or two. But if you’re traveling to an all-inclusive resort with a baby, though, you’ll probably have a lot of questions about how you’ll make it all work! And all the things related to the beach days. Before you have a baby, playing in the beach might be as simple as bringing your favourite snack, book, a bottle of cold drink and find a nice spot in the beach to sit. Sure, spending a vacation at nice secluded resorts in family friendly destination like Nusa Dua Bali could be a big help. But you’ll still need a solid vacation strategy to make sure a smooth, baby-safe beach vacation.
Know Your Resort
There’s still some planning and research to do to make sure you get the most out of your time in paradise with your family. Often, all you need to do is check ahead of time to see what amenities and things the resort will have for guests, and which items you’ll need to add to your packing list.
Book the Closest Room in the Nusa Dua Family Resorts
If you’re staying overnight or for a week, try to stay as close to the beach as possible. Try to search family resorts in Nusa Dua with oceanfront room. We know how big a resort can be, and staying in an oceanfront room will be a huge help! It saves time going back and forth from the beach to the resort and quick trip to get your beach gears. Furthermore, it also gives you more freedom to bring your child inside for naps.
Also, if possible try to book an oceanfront room with a balcony! Babies need to nap at noon, and bringing the baby in for naps also means being stranded in a hotel room at 1 p.m. on a hot summer day. No one want to get stuck at a room during summer vacation unless you really need to catch up on work or read. The option of a balcony beachfront room allows you to take in the lovely views and feel like you’re on vacation without being in the middle of everything.
Check If the Family Resort Have Crib for Your Baby
During your stay in Nusa Dua Bali, most all-inclusive family resorts provide complimentary use of a play yard or crib. Whether or whether you wish to utilize it is entirely dependent on your degree of comfort. It’s absolutely worth checking ahead of time to see whether a resort or hotel will supply a pack n’ play or crib. You can either call the hotel directly (bearing in mind that some hotels have different packages depending on the region you’ll be staying in) or read their recent reviews. Being able to rent a crib allows everyone to have a nice night’s sleep without worrying.
Bring A Lot of Baby Snack!
Obviously, you should stick to their feeding and snacking schedule, but bring extra in case they become irritable. There’s no such thing as too many snacks! Watermelon, ice cream, popsicles, and applesauce are all terrific items to practice self-feeding without making a mess indoors. You can also take some breads from the breakfast selection at the resort’s restaurant as beach snacks.
Prepare Plenty of Milk and Water
On those hot summer days, it’s critical to keep your your baby hydrated. Always carry a sippy cup of water or enough of milk/formula with them. Because they can’t tell you when they’re thirsty or sick, it’s up to you to keep them hydrated.

Beach Tents for Kids
Bringing a lightweight pop-up tent or umbrella with you will provide shade for both you and your baby, as we don’t want them to be out in the sun for too long. If your child is still small, you might be able to get them to snooze on the beach. Make sure they have a comfortable, shaded spot to rest.
Even if your infant is only playing near the water, with a bucket of water, or near a baby pool, you will need to bring swim diapers. Regular diapers inflate as soon as they come into contact with water. Your infant will be soaked and uncomfortable if he dumps a bucket of water on himself.
The Sand Toys!
You’ll definitely need some sand toys if you’re going to the beach with a baby. There’s no need to spend money on pricey toys when sand and water provide enough of stimulation. They only need a little bucket, shovel, and possibly a tiny watering can to get started! A mesh bag to store them in allows the sand to sift out once you’re done rather than sitting in the bag and causing a mess.
A Bunch of Regular Diapers
Also, don’t forget to bring regular diapers! You want to put them in a regular dry diaper in between swimming so they’re not sitting in a soaked diaper for too long. This will cause a diaper rash. So if your baby is ready for a break from the pool to eat a quick snack, switch them into a dry diaper and have a spare swim diaper for a second round in the pool or ocean if needed.

UV Swimwear for Kids
When purchasing bathing suits for your child, keep in mind that two pieces are the ideal option. A two-piece swimsuit makes it much easier to remove a wet swimsuit for a rapid diaper change. The bottom of several one-piece swimsuits for boys has a snap closure, which allows for quick changes. Make sure the bathing suits have a UPF rating. This is similar to the SPF rating for sunscreens, except it refers to the amount of UV rays that may pass through a fabric.
A Baby-Friendly Sunscreen
In some parts of the world, sunscreen is shockingly difficult to come by, and it’s also incredibly expensive. Furthermore, you may not be able to find any that are suitable for children.
