    Pack little, buy when you're there!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our luggage!

    Luggage and bags: One bag per person...no more! Weight of our bags was about 12 kilos each and a bit more coming back. If you take a flight from El Nido to Manila you are only allowed 10k per person, so pack accordingly! Getting on and off jeepneys and boats all the time, you'll be glad you packed lightly

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: We were in our flip flops all day everyday...even to walk to the waterfall we chose to wear flip flops as the roads were muddy and our trainers would not have helped! We brought an umbrella which was useful and really that's all you need! It's so warm that you really just need to bring the bare essentials! I brought too much yet again with me and half of it never got worn!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Maybe a little over the top, I always take creams and solutions in case we have an accident and there are no medical supplies close by, and as always I never need them and bring them all the way back with me! BUT, I noticed that several of the convenience shops had medicine for all sorts of ailments, so don't worry if you leave anything at home by accident!

    Photo Equipment: Definitely take your camera! If you have an underwater camera, even better! There are sights here you may not see anywhere else again!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: We didn't do any camping or trekking, but definitely for the beach...just bring a towel!!! If you have a waterproof dive bag it will come in handy for the island hopping days when you're out on the boat all day long..plastic bags often tear easily.

    Miscellaneous: Recommend you take a torch as when the electricity goes off....Port Barton is DARK!!!! Even when there is electricity, it can be very hard to see what's around you, so just to be on the safe side!

    Must bring

    Luggage and bags: Shorts and shirts are musts. a pair of rubber slippers which can provide your feet protection.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It's good to have a snorkel or diving gear too although these can be rented from the pension houses. Fins are necessary especially because some rocks are sharp. a wide brimmed hat and a pair of sunglasses will provide some protection.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: you have to bring a sunblock for the swimming and the island hopping. Don't forget your off lotion.

    Photo Equipment: a good waterproof camera is ideal to allow you to take pictures in the water but an ordinary cam will do.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: it's good to have a tent to pitch in the part of an island that is facing the sun. Bring lots of mineral water when going to the islands.
