    Sunblock! Sunblock!

    by anliz99 Written Apr 20, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Backpack

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: shorts, shirts, aqua shoes

    Miscellaneous: Most especially, SUNBLOCK! the heat of the sun is really bad and you will be in danger of burning up if you don't apply every now and then.

    Best one to bring as an added protection is the Godiva Anti-Jellyfish sunblock. Best protection again jellyfish sting.

  • Wear rubber sandals with strap even when swimming

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Use rubber sandals with strap since you don't only do island hopping, there are treks and lots of sea urchins.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: bring alaxan since some treks are slippery, steep and challenging.

    Photo Equipment: protect your camera from sea water. place it in a plastic container or you can buy a water-proof camera case if budget permits

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: bring lots of sunblock and insect repellant. Mainit sa coron at dragon size ang mga lamok esp in Kayangan Lake

    Bring Light Colored Clothes and Flip Flops

    by machomikemd Written Mar 13, 2015

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: The Philippines is a tropical country and Coron Tpwn is included with just two seasons, the summer season and rainy seasons and since the area is humid, I would suggest you just bring T-Shirts more so the light colored ones as to somewhat deflect the heat instead of the dark colored ones which absorb heat. Also Bring Jeans and or walking shorts or cargo shorts so that you will be more comfortable and not feeling heavy when walking around. Bring a small umbrella (portable one) or a water repellent jacket for the sudden rain showers during summer time so that you would not feel drenched and sun block too if you don't want to get a tan or be sunburned while walking around the humid heat. Lastly, don't forget carrying sun glasses and a baseball cap too.

    Bring Sun Block

    by machomikemd Written Mar 13, 2015

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: off course the main reason people go to Coron is to go to the various Isolated beaches and snorkel at the lagoons and at the Kanyangan Lake, Barracuda Lake, Siete Pecados, etc and secondly to see the ecotourism sites. being a tropical area, you will easily get sun burned by just snorkelling and swimming and it is best to have a sun block lotion handy to put on your face and body and extremities to avoid sun burn and if you happen to forget to bring sunblock lotion, then no problem as all hotels and the assorted convenience stores and souvenir stores in Coron Town and some of the Attractions sell beach items like sun block, beach hat, towels and more to tourists.

    Bring A Water Proof Camera or Smartphone

    by machomikemd Written Mar 13, 2015

    Photo Equipment: since water proof cameras are now very cheap, we always make a point of bringing waterproof cameras to take pictures and videos of our swimming travels whether on the beach, scuba diving, swimming pool, waterpark or what have you. also there are now waterproof camera cases available for smart phones like otter or life proof which you can take with you up to depths of 2 meters (6 feet) and also the Dry Dock Tough waterproof and well sealed plastic case for smart phones and tablets and you can submerged your gadgets up to 10 meters (33 feet) with these dry dock gizmos.
