Written by AVLCI

Are you heading to the serene island of Boracay real soon but have yet to finish packing your essentials? Or worse, have no idea exactly what to pack? No worries, we have you covered! This cheat sheet features everything you’ll need to bring for that ultimate beach getaway!

It’s all in the bag!

Opt for a reliable yet lightweight bag. A duffle bag, a gym bag, or a simple backpack is your best bet. All are made from light material that is sturdy enough to hold kilos’ worth of clothes and other essentials. If it is within your budget, choose one that’s water and slash proof just to be safe. In addition, bring a small tote or net bag which you can use when hopping from one beach to another.

What to wear?

We don’t want you to overpack so just bring the necessary clothing items. They are the following: swimsuit or trunks, a cover-up, lounge wear, sleepwear, underwear, a cocktail dress or dress shirt (just in case that swanky bistro reopens sooner than expected), a pair of comfy outfits for transit, and a few face masks. Add in an extra top or bottom in there in case of an emergency.

Sun’s out, tan’s up.

It is important to shield your skin from UV ray exposure since you’re about to spend most of your time having fun under the sun. That’s why before you explore, better lather on your fave sunscreen. We suggest going for one that has an SPF of 50 or above. The sunrays are extra harsh on the skin especially during noon!

All things are possible with the right pair of sunglasses.

You should always bring a pair of sunnies with you wherever you go. Why? Aside from giving your summer outfit that extra oomph, it also protects your eyes from the harmful sun rays. Isn’t it amazing that you can take care of yourself and look extra gorgeous at the same time? That’s what we call hitting two birds with one glass. We mean, stone!
