  • A pair of closed-toe shoes: Essential for rough terrain.
  • A swimming costume or bathing suit: For pool areas.
  • Warm clothing for winter visits (November-February): This includes a warm jacket or coat, beanie, winter hat, scarf, gloves, thermal undergarments, and a warm jumper.

Accessories and Personal Items:

  • Early mornings and evenings can get chilly, especially in winter, so pack accordingly.
  • For meals and lounging, comfortable clothing is key. Evening wear tends to be a bit smarter, but it's not a strict rule.
