What should I pack when moving to Boracay Island?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Boracay Island to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Boracay Island in the Philippines, you should pack lightweight and breathable clothing due to the tropical climate. Include items such as shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, and sundresses. Don't forget to pack a good amount of swimwear as you'll likely spend a lot of time on the beach. A hat, sunglasses, and a high SPF sunscreen are essential to protect yourself from the sun. You should also pack a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated. Comfortable footwear is important, especially sandals or flip-flops for the beach and walking shoes for exploring the island. Pack your toiletries, but remember that items like shampoo, conditioner, and body wash can be bought locally. However, if you have specific brands you prefer, it might be a good idea to bring them with you. Don't forget to pack your necessary medications and a basic first aid kit. Bring along your electronics, such as your phone, laptop, and camera, along with their chargers. An international adapter might be needed for your devices. Pack a good book or two for relaxing on the beach. Lastly, bring important documents like your passport, driver's license, and any necessary visas or permits. It's also a good idea to have copies of these documents. Remember, while it's important to be prepared, most items can be purchased on the island if you forget something," commented one expat who made the move to Boracay Island, Philippines.
