    Potipot Packing

    by monina_c Written Apr 29, 2008

    Luggage and bags: Better bring waterproof backpacks/bags when you go to this island. Better yet, bring garbage bags to stow your things in before boarding the boat. The spray from the waves will drench you and your things in no time.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Wear your most comfortable beach gear/clothes and don't forget to bring a cover-up because the sun can be fierce out there! Also bring lots of ground sheeting or malongs because there are no beach furniture for hire out in the island.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring strong sunblock, after sun lotion and insect repellant.

    Photo Equipment: bring a ziploc or waterproof camera case for your equipment.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If available bring your tent and essential beach equipment to the island because you can't rent them there.

    Miscellaneous: Food and water! Bring lots because there is no store in Potipot.

    Experiencing Potipot

    by joyams Written Apr 25, 2007

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: First aid kit, a necessity.

    Photo Equipment: Cameras, cameras, cameras. Underwater cameras would be cool as well.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you're planning to stay overnight at the island, you can do so. There's a clear area that campers can set up their tents. Make sure to bring lamps and portable stoves for cooking, utensils, etc. Bring lots of water. You don't wanna die of thirst there. Bring your snorkelling gear too.

    Miscellaneous: For day trippers, just bring a bag of chips or two. Water and other drinks. A cooler would be nice, too. You can bring your own lunch, or as Manong Noel said, you could have it brough to the island.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: bring a small medicine kit in case you step on thorns or beer bottle caps

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There is no electricity so bring a kerosine lamp, flashlights and batteries. If you can, bring snorkling gear and flotation devices.

    Miscellaneous: There is fresh water on the island via a hand pump. Water is a bit salty but good enough to shower with. Not advisable for drinking. Read more in my album
