Packing for a beach trip is something that always brings excitement to me that I get too focused on what I should wear for a particular day and what accessories to match them with. It would take lots of time preparing, ha!
Sometimes, I tend to over pack and bring more than what’s needed because I need to have options. Yes, options, options, options.
For my first major beach trip this year, I made a goal to pack as light as possible and curate my daily outfits. It saved me time on the thinking department and more time to enjoy the vacation/getaway. After all, I went on vacation to relax and not to worry about what I’ll wear the last minute before the tour (which happens sometime)
I have developed a routine and planning on how I curate my outfits for my travels (more about that on the coming posts). It’s still a hit and miss and I wouldn’t say I am truly good at it. I am still learning and it’s fine. It would take time.
I wouldn’t cover the essentials stuff because you can find it on the internet already. I just wanted to stress out that things you need to bring for Coron specifically.
What to pack for Coron, Palawan checklist:
Insect repellant – Mosquitoes are ubiquitous in Palawan.
Flash light – Power interruption is common in Coron so make sure you bring this with you anytime, anywhere.
First Aid kit – There’s going to be a lot of touring and while the boat has their own in case something went wrong, it’s better to have yours as well. Safety comes first.
Healing spray or Aloe Vera – There’s going to be a lots of time that’ll be spent under the sun. A healing spray or soothing gel are the perfect companion after a full day outside. Remember, skin cancer ain’t kewl.
Hair Oil – Because staying for a long period under the sun can also damage your hair.
Hygienic wipes – As you’re gonna be island hopping, chances are there are no rest rooms and if mother nature calls, well you do what you gotta do. There’s a mini “rest room” on the boat tho where you’ll have to do “it” and you’re gonna be needing the wipes.
