I always pack swimwear on every trip now–even if 8 out of 10 times I never get in the water– because there was that one time when I finally got to go kayaking in paradise and forgot to bring a swimsuit. And let me tell ya, it was no fun to sit in wet khaki shorts during the long ride back to the hotel. So now, a bikini is always in my suitcase no matter where I go.
