We've never needed to wear 'beach shoes' in the sea before. What type of beach shoes do we need? Something like this?

Hi,

They will be perfect,I wore mine all the time in the sea when I was snorkling just for peace of mind that when I did stand up my feet were protected in case of anything like bits of sharp coral etc .

Lots of people do wear them and lots dont personal choice for yourself,they are cheap enough and dont weigh anything in your case so I would personally take some and then you have them if you want to wear them.

Thanks, i'm assuming they don't fill with water while you're swimming around? Could we just take old trainers or would they be too heavy?

samstar, the shoes in your link are fine - they do fill with water, but because the design of the mesh the water doesn't stay in the shoes.

Trainers, on the other hand, do not let the water drain out, so you could swim in them but you would very soon feel like an extra in a Mafia movie Laughing (i.e. concrete blocks on your feet).

I've worn beach shoes before in Jamaica, to walk from the hotel onto the beach and into the sea, have a swim , then walk back up to the hotel - the shoes are designed exactly for doing this.

As people say, though, it's personal choice as to whether or not you wear them - some like to go barefoot, some like the peace of mind of having some sort of protection on their feet just in case...Each to their own Smile

We bought these ones http://www.cottontraders.co.uk/footwear-collection/aqua-toggle-trainer-unisex/invt/aq10410/&bklist=icat,2,
and found the sand so fine on meeru that it got through the mesh and started rubbing our feet - so even though the trainer types look better I would suggest you go for the neoprene versions instead.
