And just like that, we’re counting down the days to summer. In a few months, you will be hunting for the best beach resort and cramming for that beach-ready body.
If you are a backpacker, this is an exciting season for you. Summer is definitely a good excuse to discover places you’ve never been and experience adventures you’ve never tried. Apart from setting a budget for your next beach trip, you also have to make sure that you have everything you need to make your summer more enjoyable.
While backpackers have the reputation for being beach-ready, there could still be a few things you could be missing out on. Sure, backpackers know exactly what to pack and how to pack. But there are some backpacker secrets that will surely come in handy for your next beach trip.
We’re talking about beach hacks that you never really thought of. These involve ordinary items lying around the house that can actually make your adventure at the beach truly hassle-free.
Most of the time, the brightest ideas come at the most unlikely places and circumstances. Now, think about your team in the office. What has come out of your formal meetings? To meet again, perhaps? Maybe it is time to take things outside. Being chained to a desk or holed up in a room could feel very limiting, even intimidating, as if the normal flow of ideas are not encouraged. So the next time you want to brainstorm, plan a campaign or have a casual outing, do it in a place where you can all get to relax and still be productive.
That jump shot sure looks fun and that hair flip is gorgeous. We invest so much time, effort, and filters to perfect these shots whenever we hit the beach. While such beach photography can capture the best memories, they are also becoming a bit repetitive. “Let’s do a group jump shot by the shore!” Oh, how original.
Mastering space-saving packing hacks is a skill worth learning for Boracay backpackers. Spending most of your time outdoors for the duration of your vacation means that you need to prioritize the items you’d be carrying. Fortunately, a Boracay itinerary is typically “no frills”—with a couple of light outfits, a pair of sunglasses, and sunscreen, you’re good to go!
When it comes to rich marine life, nothing comes close to the Philippines. Home to the world’s most gorgeous beaches, the Philippines is paradise to local and foreign divers. Recently, the Philippines’ Boracay was once again named the world’s best island in the Conde Nast Traveler’s 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards. Apart from the powdery white sand, stunning sunset, and thriving party scene, Boracay’s sea life is also worth raving about.
Boracay is friendly to explorers of different experience levels. You don’t have to be an experienced scuba diver to be able to encounter the most fascinating sea animals and creatures in the island. One of the most exciting, budget-friendly things to do in Boracay is to take snorkeling sessions and feast your eyes on the some of the most beautiful coral reefs and marine sanctuaries you will ever see in your life.
