Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you go out to the sea often, bring or buy a dry bag there to protect your camera and other electronics equipment.

Mosquito repellent and sun tan lotion
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The minimum if you are on a weekend trip from Singapore. A pair of shorts, some sandals and your bathing costume.

The sun is strong even when it is overcast so slip, slop, slap as the Aussies say. I didn't and suffered a nice red face!
