Travelogue: Subic Beach, Zambales 2

Sunglasses: Aldo | Top: Stradivarius | Shorts: SM Department Store | Sandals: Asos

I used to detest going to the beach. I have professed my love and fascination for mountains before and I always say I like mountains and forests more than sand and seas. But lately, I am having a change of heart. I don't why but I am starting to prefer going to the beach than going uplands. I still prefer the cold weather though more than hot and humid but there is just something about the beach that is alluring. The limitless horizon and fierce sunsets - these are just among the few things that captivated my heart. I love going to the beach and I am thankful the country where I live has a multitude of beaches to offer.


But going to the beach is always never easy. There are so many things I tend to leave behind that are necessary for beach trips. Here are some of the things I find necessary to help make your beach vacation more enjoyable and comfortable:
  1. Sunglasses - make sure the one you will bring aren't just for decoration. Make sure they have UV protection. The one I was wearing is I think category 3 UV protection. 
  2. Sunblock - of course, to avoid nasty sunburns and to block UV rays as well that can cause skin cancer. I always bring two sunblocks: one for the body and face and another one for the hair (to prevent dry and damaged hair)
  3. Goggles - I am one of the many people who can't open their eyes underwater. Whether it be in the pool or under the sea, it hurts so much I can't bear with it. I am scared of swimming with eyes closed because I can't see what lies in front or below me so bringing goggles is always necessary.
  4. Camera - I don't have an underwater camera though I really want to buy one (maybe when I have finally bought an slr). But any camera will do so long as it can capture all those memorable moments.
  5. Lip balm - your lips have to stay hydrated as well. Salt water can be very drying on the lips so applying lip balm is necessary to keep it hydrated and smooth.
  6. Drinking water - the intense heat at the beach can be very dehydrating. Make sure that you have drinking water with you all the time to avoid dehydration. 
The rainy season has started already where I live and I am deeply sad that it will be difficult for me to go to the beach the coming months. But when the rains has finally stopped, it is dry season all over again. One of the perks of living in a tropical country: you can experience summer all year round - with intermittent rainfall.
